Gorgeous Displays from RT/Marburger

One of the really great things about the  Round Top/Marburger flea market and show was the beautiful displays and vignettes. These first 2 were taken out on the fields. If I had driven and could have taken a trailer back home, it would have no doubt been filled to it's limit and I would have been in BIG trouble when I got home!!! LOL!!
I will admit, I am a sucker for garden furniture and decor. It just looks so peaceful and cool.

Inside the tents at Marburger were  treats for the eyes everywhere. This one got me because I have a thing for both green and brown transferware.

Yes, I know... more garden stuff, but isn't it just divine???

This display was so spectacular in person. The photo just doesn't do it justice. And I love those chairs!

Love, love, love that ladder.  Wouldn't you just love to have a loft office space with that ladder in it???

This display had a very contemporary edge to it, but still had a vintage flair. The flowers in the vase and on the napkin rings are all made out of paper.

I finally met Shelley of Sweet Pea Home while I was there. Her interiors are just lovely and I have followed her blog for a while now. I love this door with the chalkboard paint in it. One of these days, I will find just the right door to do that to.

Okay, okay... I know. More garden decor. What can I say????

Can you say... delicious???

I'm a sucker for empty frames hanging on the wall!!!!

I wanted everything in the room.  Too bad it wouldn't fit in my suitcase.  :(

How wonderful for you to see it all first hand. It is fun to visit all the blogs and see all the different booths, because no one can possibly post them all.
Maybe there is an on line party in there somewhere...."What did you see at Marburger?" lol
The tremendous amount of work and effort everyone puts into these events, I hope everyone had a successful venture.

Thank you so much for the pics for those of us who rarely get to these events.

The Ladder was without a doubt my favorite thing! But had I been there with a trailer I could have gotten into a LOT of trouble too. LOL Hugs!
