My Mom visited this week to head out to Round Top Tx for the antique shows again! She also talked me into renewing the good old blog and begged me to post more photographs. You can't say no to your Mother right?
I thought we'd start out with a current post. One of our very favorite parts of Round Top is the Marburger Farms show. We always try to get there early and wait for the gate to open. It's so much fun to wander through the tents and the buildings looking at the displays that the booth owners put together. I thought that you might all like to see some of the photographs.
Almost all of the images were taken in the very first tent. I got distacted by all the amazingness going on but as you can tell from all the many images it is well worth the price of admission!
I thought I'd start with the French Country images and booths that are so popular right now.
These images are all from South Porch Antiques. Karen has amazing styling skills and the booth was so well laid out. Patrick added Texas charm to the booth with his cowboy hat.
The next four images are from the Willows Nest. She has such a great selection and a good mix of new handmade items and vintage pieces.
Magnolia Pearl is a clothing line that is always crazy popular at the show. I think it has a very Texan appeal and it is not something that I as a former NYCer have come to terms with yet but the styling of the booth is always stunning.
J Hill Designs has her own bedding line and as you can see she also has fantastic styling skills. I really loved her booth. It seemed like the French Country booth owners also have some of the best designed booths.
I've always thought that these plastic letters that are fairly common were tacky but when paired with the vintage paper and clip boards they are really great. Again, it's all in seeing the potential an item has.
We saw this bowl of crochet thread at the East of L.A. booth. We've decided in our travels that everything looks better if you add a black number to it.
