Weekend Trip~

First, I'd like to start off by saying if it wasn't for sweet people like Theresa from Garden Antqs, I wouldn't have ventured out this weekend to Austin and Brenham. Thanks again're a doll!
My sister, myself and our husbands went to Austin to the City Wide Garage Sale and the Brenham Antiques Show this weekend. Let me tell ya...I have never seen so many tables piled high with tablecloths, quilts, pillowcases, aprons, hankies, vintage clothing, you name it they got it. Once we got done going through all the piles of "goodies" we scanned all the booths then got right down to business and shopped! We came home with quite a load of things that will be for sale in the shop and my booth (will post pics later). Then we headed down the road to Uncommon Objects, this place is "crazy"...I wanted to buy everything that I saw. I did come home with a book that I have had my eye on for quite some time now...
Country Living: A Bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace
by Robin Brown of Magnolia Pearl...and it was signed too!
What an outstanding can read about her on her website
We also stopped in at the Austin Antique Mall where I found the most sweetest pair of angel wings, I'll be posting pics of this later...where I'll be using them in a Valentine's vignette in my booth. We then made our way to Brenham to the Antiques Show where I met Linda, from Willow Nest in Burton TX...she is such a sweet and talented lady. Our next stop was at the best antique shop, Leftovers in Brenham. It's a little high end, but so worth the trip to just be able to dream and drool over all the lovelies they have. The set-up is reminded me of the Homestead in Fredericksburg, TX. I didn't buy a thing there, but I did take in all the inspiration I could. Wow, what a trip!!!
Sorry...I didn't take any pics..I'm not the best photographer, plus I need a better camera.
Have a good Monday!

What a great weekend. I love the hill country and you went to a lot of my favorite places. Isn't Leftovers just to die for? Debbie
