Holiday Show in the Country

Today we drove out to what I consider the country, Brenham, Round Top, Warrenton Texas area to go to the Holiday Show at the Texas Rose Show. Vickie had some really great dealers that were set up with her and the weather was just perfect.

Also, we didn't realize she has a food vendor that makes awesome Mexican Food. If you know me, you know I'm very particular about my Mexican Food because growing up I had the best authentic Mexican Food around. So, someone would really have to have good food for me to compliment them. This food vendor actually has homemade tortilla's, which has almost become a dying art.

So, if you are near Warrenton between now and December 22, you have to come out to the show. They are located right across from the Marburger Farms Antique Show on Hwy 237. Look who we saw at the show, Kim and her daughter. Don't they look pretty!!



These next few displays belonged to Vickie. She's really good and has great things:








This is Susi and Hector's space. They are now located here each Spring and Fall as well as the Tin Star field in Warrenton. They can also be found at the Austin City Wide Sale and occassionally in Canton:








Here is Linda and Ludmil's booth. Pretty and unique as always:




This was Doris' space. She can also be found in Canton each month:



And, last but not least was Becky's booth. Becky is located inside one of the outbuildings and she too is going to be permanently located here in the Spring and Fall:



I did find a few treasures here. Fabulous job to all the dealers.

  3. I just saw about 100 things I want in these photos! Gorgeous! I like your music on your blog too! It's not what I usually listen to but I really like it! I was clicking on each song and I like them all! I usually just turn the music off when someone has it but I really liked yours!

  4. Oh Theresa, looks like a winter wonderland to me!!! The absence of color appeals to me so much! I think because it causes you to notice texture and details, sparkle and style ~ gorgeous!!! xxoo, Dawn

  9. Theresa, what a wonderful surprise to see you today! Vickies place is really coming into its own...some fabulous vendors and a great location across from Marburger! I visit often and find cool pieces at great prices, I am dying for the cement swan...its on my wish list!

  18. Hey Theresa~ I was looking at your pictures again and just figured out the food vendor you were talking about!! When we were at the Fall show we stopped by and had some of the faaaaaaaaabulous mexican food. I spoke with the mom and daughters, they were all in that little trailer "cranking" out some of the best Mex I've ever had~*~I told them so! They were so sweet. We told everybody about them~that feild of dealers is awesome.....Debra

  22. When I grow up, I'm moving to Texas...y'all have the best year-round antiquin'...I'm so jealous!!!

    I was taught the art of making real tortillas by one of the migrant workers that worked on my husband's farm, we had a blast that day, as her kids cracked up at my attempts at making perfectly round tortillas, they said they looked like every state in the U.S....not funny!!! But I did master the art with my broom handle dough-roller, that every bride gets for a wedding present...back in the day I'm sure. But oh what a taste, nuttin' like it!!!

    I am in Austin on short trip to visit my kids and I am thinking of stopping by The Texas Rose Show you mentioned in Warrenton. What are the hours on Sunday? That is when I will travel back to my home in Southeast Texas. Thanks for all the show information.

  28. I haven't been to your blog in a long time....what was I thinking! I was just over at another gals blog and she had pics of your booth. When she pointed out the star made out of the ruler I realized that I have visited your booth before and it was lovely!
