Ok, I know you’re probably sick of seeing this same picture.
I promise it’s different though.
(Beth, Baby Jane Nathan, Me & Jodie)
I thought about skipping my round up of Round Top
because I'm so late in posting.
But please humor me & play along like you’ve never seen any of it before.
This was my second visit to the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’. The first time I went for the STUFF.
This time I went for the PEOPLE!
My girl Anne & her honey of a husband met up with us on Saturday. James (Mr. Twig to his groupies) really set the bar for Junk spouses. He was the perfect flea escort.
The booths we saw that day were amazing!!!
No matter what your style, there is something for everybody.
Do you like it prissy???
Lacey?Or do you like it grungy & prim!
Perhaps a little rust??
The dealers in Warrenton are top notch.
The Seed Box was one of my favorites.
And Miss Gloria of Sweet Pea so nice!
Her collection of linens were the yummiest I've seen.
I've got to get myself to Winnie & Tulua's & find a few pretties for my wish list.
Her displays were over the top!
A perfect marriage of luxurious fabric & mother nature.
Honeycomb place mats-Brilliant!
All that sweating & shopping really works up an appetite.
So we headed to Royers for the most incredible lunch ever.
Beth was a good girl & had salad, not me.....
I had the best fried chicken in the world, & I topped it off with apple pie 'a la mode.
Karla had this delicious salmon topped with shrimp in a buttery sauce. If you get the opportunity to eat there do it, it's worth the wait!
After fueling up we were ready to PARTY!
The main reason I came on this trip was to attend Theresa Cano's famous blog party.
I was dying to meet the girls I've been
stalking following for years & I admit, I was a wee bit star struck.
TOT is someone I've admired for so long. She is a huge inspiration to me, & I made the creepy doll head cake plate their holding in her honor.
The cake plate was my entry for this years party competition. The contest was to bring an appetizer & present it in a cool way. Look how cute it is displayed with Karla's awesome crown cloche.
I thought we had it in the bag, well.......
we were ROBBED!
Lost to a pair of melons!
Seriously, the entries were beyond clever & the party a blast!
Theresa Cano's booth blew me away. She is such a huge talent & has a heart of gold.
I was happy to finally meet the sweetest little Pea in blogland.
My only regret was I couldn't stay for Marburger so that I could see Shelly & TOTs booth.
Shelly was one of my first blog friends & meeting her & her handsome hubby was a highlight.
My home-girl Charlene was there with Diane Cook & art club pal Joann. I would love to take a class with Diane someday. Her jewelry is fabulous.
Pretty girls all in a row!
I was a blob of sweat, & they look as fresh as a flower - all of them!
From left to right, my friend Susan, Elizabeth (Suzanne's beautiful daughter), my sweetheart Jodie (see she doesn't always wear shorts & crocs) & Suzanne of Pink Roses.
I was so busy gawking I didn't get to take a lot of pictures.
But I'll wrap it up by saying it was one of the best weekends EVER!
Thanks so much Jodie for putting up with my messy self, & to Karla & Beth for driving 13 hours to see your Texas friends. I'm already thinking about the Spring show!
