Here we are ~ back at Marburger Farm in Round Top.
I am always looking for equestrian theme antiques.
Did I ever tell you about a horse I used to show whose name was
"Polo"? He was an excellent jumper who loved to show off.
There were two places where he was the happiest ~ the show ring
and the mud puddle. Whenever he discovered a big mud puddle
look out. He would be rolling in it in a flash. Maybe that's why
he was retired from the polo field ;-) I won a lot of ribbons with him.
He was a rascal though. Once after a judge handed us our ribbon,
the judge turned his back and Polo bit him on his butt. I thought
I was going to die of embarrassment. The judge was a good sport
about it though ~ thankfully!
This painting wanted to come home with me. Really it did.
Would I kid about a thing like that?
You can see that it would fit in perfectly with my decor :-)
I am still waiting for Ralph Lauren to some out with a fragrance
that smells like a tack room. I would buy it ~ really I would!
Lots of great farmhouse decor.
And this pillow .... sigh
David just doesn't get the appeal of rust. I on the other
hand am smitten.
Wonderful old baskets were everywhere. I was still at the show
when it was getting close to closing time. I looked at a very large
French basket. The dealer said that he could make me a really good
deal on it. I was tempted, but then I stiffened my spine and my purse
and said to him ....
"I have a house filled with baskets. If I bring one more home
I will have some explaining to do!"
The dealer laughed and so did I. However he will never know
how sad I was to leave that basket behind.
Who knew these have become collectable? Did you???
I did not.
Especially since ….
We have one at home. This is David's souvenir from a trip to NYC
when he was a kid. We have the Empire State Building too. We hang
onto everything around here :-)
I love these old wrought iron patio sets. The style is more elegant
and dainty than the new ones of today. I can just envision a group of
women at an afternoon tea wearing their pearls and gloves.
More white chippy furniture. Love it!
Everywhere I turned there was something that caught my eye.
And then ….
This hand painted tole tray table. I am still dreaming of this one!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of Marburger Farm. I am already
looking forward to the fall show.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
