My trip to Round Top/Canton Tx

 I think I have finally recovered from the week and a half long junk'n extravaganza that my my friend Katie from Sacred Heart Studios and I went on. We traveled across the country to the great state of Texas for the Round Top antiques fair and then, as if that wasn't enough, we drove another 3 hours north to attend another antique show in Canton Tx!

 Katie and I both love the country side in that part of the country. Lots of green rolling hills and trees!

The only thing I didn't love??? The humidity!!! Holy cow! For a couple of Arizona girls, it was definitely something to get used to! (Which we did not!!! LOL!)

 I picked up some wonderful goodies that will slowly appear in my booth at Rusty Saturday!
That fabulous french Wine basket was a find of Katie's and will eventually show up in her space at Rust and Roses.
I made a list of things of things I was looking for before I left...
Architectural Salvage
Ironstone
Transferware
Vintage Linens
Old Scales
Old Wire Baskets
Grain Sacks
Chippy Old Picture Frames
Small Furniture pieces with natural aged patina
Bling
Tarnished Silver
Old Clocks
.... after the trip I went through my list ...
I got everything I had wanted!!!
 I tried putting myself on a linen restriction after the first few bag fulls... Ha! That did not last long! I just cant help myself!




 
While the junk'n part of the trip was the best part, there were some other pretty awesome perks!!
Texas Bar-b-que!!!!

 Seriously?? Who can resist warm peach cobbler and ice cream!! Thankfully we walked and worked off all the calories!!!

 Another highlight of our trip!! Getting to play with a pen of miniature Australian Shepherds!!!
That puppy is almost as cute as Katie is!!!
 I seriously did not want to give him back!!!!

Some of my fabulous finds from Texas are already cleaned up and in booth my Rusty Saturday. This weekend is also The Salvage Yard weekend, so it's the perfect weekend to come and visit!!
