Spring Antique Week 2016 Part One

This past Saturday, David and I drove up to Warrenton and Round Top
to catch the first weekend of Antique Week.  It was very crowded despite
being Easter weekend.  It almost seems like the crowds get bigger every
time we drive up there.  

I will say that not everything is antique.  There are many tents filled with
decorative items that are new but made to look old.  That's fine with me,
because there are some great finds.  I love those Pony Express cases!

I saw lots of things that would look great in my potting shed, but I 
am holding off for a bit.  It's already getting crowded in there ;-)

I love this stand and cloche!

I looked long and hard at this little chest.  I am thinking that it would look
great in the guest room on one side of the bed.  I did not buy it, but I
did buy this ….

Large wicker bee skep.  I don't think it was ever really used for that
purpose, and I am not going to use it for that, but I love the look and
off to the potting shed it goes.

I also purchased this round tole tray.  That is going into the guest room because
the color is perfect.  I'll show you later how I plan to use it.

I saw quite a few strollers with cute pups being strolled around.  These two sweet girls
were nice enough to pose for me.  They are so cute!  I don't know how happy
my Bentley would be in a stroller.  I can envision him starting to whine and
wanting to either be held or to walk on the leash.   I can't say for sure that he
would not like it, just guessing.  Maybe I will have to try it out sometime.

If you need a bracket of any style and are close to Round Top, for goodness
sake stop at this booth!  

Or how about a dough bowl?  Stacks and stacks of all sizes, shapes 
and colors.  

Well, that's part one.  I have more to share with you later this week.
I am hoping to go back up this Saturday to stop at Marburger Farm
and the Big Red Barn.  Those are my two favorite stops.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. I have never been there but love going to fairs like that. The dogs are adorable. Not sure that can be fun for them esp. When it is hot out. But maybe more fun than being home alone.

  2. Ooh!! Sounds like so much fun.


  3. I wish so much we had something like Round Top up here in the northeast! I am going to search and see if I can find something.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
