'So, how did you find out about this show?'
'My friend Cindy in California invited me'
'I do not remember you talking about this friend, who is she?'
'A very good blog friend'
'When did you meet her?'
(Insert blank look)
And as anticipated a great friend indeed!!
And I could not have spent this time with a better group of women
We shared a gorgeous spring in the Texas countryside with stately Live Oaks just budding out
And this house our tour guide, Kimberely found.
As I tiptoed into the rental house at 2am (long story) my bedroom awaited me
OFF THE CAPE. What a nice touch to find this Dash and Albert tote, welcome tag, a decorative oyster shell and a gift certificate to her online shop
Loved this room and could not wait to explore the rest of the house in the morning and best of all, meet my friends!
I now find that I need a stuffed bass.....
Stucco walls, corrugated ceiling and apron, concrete floor stained black
We shared in the delight of twenty five miles, both sides of the street, most 5+ tents deep,
of an antiquers mecca........gluttonous overload
The goods ranged from country, down home and sheer junk to grand salon
Vendors arrive from all over the world
Wanted every one of these stylish storage boxes from 18thc Italy, not at 195.00 each
a re-creation if only time allowed. Even the back of the boxes are attractive
simply Dodge. The asking price was $5,500.00, he had already sold the other.
In addition to the goods, some of the vendors were artisans with their vignette's.
For me, I would rather look at beautiful pieces, well done that I cannot afford, versus endless junk.
Custom made lampshades
(a curse) however a find is my greatest joy. And find I did!
After hours fun
