Antique Week in Review....


If you're new to my blog, or somehow missed the news,
I spent a week towards the end of March
in Warrenton/Round Top, Texas documenting the phenomenal Antique Week.
I was there as a seller, but as an observer as well.

I had literally hundreds of images to pore through,
and still have many left to go.
Here's the best of what's left.
Enjoy!












some think it's a bit cryptic, I think it's utterly fab!

My beautiful friend Angelique gifted me
with this lovely beeswax collage she made!







and pretty maids all in a row


Have a beautiful Wednesday!

Oh I find my self drawn to that little NASA ride car :) All that beautiful junk & I am longing for the kid junk...oh what has become of me :)

Anne, you really have a wonderful eye behind the camera! I am already enjoying my visits to your blog and following right behind you as you click away. I want to THANK YOU for your lovely and caring words on my last post about Sasha. You really touched my heart. I wrote it to comfort my dad and daughter but the comments that kind people like you left were the best medicine. xx P&H

Linda said...

Amazing stuff, Anne...thanks for sharing all your great pics!

A Cottage Muse said...

I think the doll heads in the jars are my favorite! What have you done to me!!! Have a great day!

David said...

The nekkid Ken is almost as scary as the vases of doll heads! But the Angelique collage is fabulous!

Cottage Panache said...

Anne, how lucky are you?! I am vowing that I will go in October!

Oh Anne, what we could do with some of that stuff!

Laurie said...

Sometimes, when I see things such as these things that belonged to people long ago, my imagination kicks in...I can just imagine a little girl holding that old doll, sitting at the patio furniture with her mommy and a tea set. Perhaps the picture hung on their parlor wall, and the Holy Family sat near an outdoor pond. All so tranquil, so peaceful...

But then, like a record player needle scratching on the LP, (wish I could write what that sounds like, ya know?) there appears these heads and funky signs and the womens' dress forms, and then the guy (ahem) and wow! I had to laugh outloud! You crack me up, Anne!

Hugs,
Laurie

Theresa said...

Love it all! The gift from Angelique is so pretty! Thanks for sharing your trip with us! Have a blessed day, thank for visiting my Daughter and leaving THE SWEETEST comment:) HUGS!

vintagesusie & wings said...

OK...I want one of those fabulous dress forms, I'm drooling right now. And do you think it would be possible to shrink that rusty garden table & chairs set down to a suitable size for shipping & when it arrives here I will use my magical 'Blogging Powers' to bring it back to actual size??? Oh yeah...it must be mine!!! Yummy stuff friend, I can't wait to meet you in the fall when I get to have my virgin journey there...it all looks sooooooo goooooood!!! ;)
Smiles Friend & thanks for sharing your cool pics,
Susie

Faded Charm said...

Oh, I can't even imagine. I think i would feel like I'd died and gone to heaven, "junk heaven" that is! Maybe someday I'll get over there and I'd love to meet you in person.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
