Everyone is packing up on the last day of the famous Round Top/Warrenton Antique and Marburger Shows....and it is quiet in our small town again...a little sad and lonely feeling as we sit on the front porch watching all the trailers going by with all their show stuff....and we are hoping they had a good show....and have a safe trip home. We had fabulous visitors, especially Kelly and Mandy, love you!...and we also had fabulous weather!! One of our new guests who is in an Antique Mall in Denton, Texas, Barbara, gave me a nice little surprise...the OLD print with "TEACH ME THY WAY OH LORD"...it is perfect colors and everything for my house! Thanks girls!! It should have been a present for Dick since he cooked the "scones" every morning!! I meant to get pictures of our B&B guests with their "goodies"...and in the fun I forgot, so I will post some little things I got on a quick run and some OLD FEED SACKS I have had tucked away for a long time....to some day do something special with. They are from some local Feed Companies near here and date from 1926 through 1950's. I think a couple of the big graphic ones would look awesome framed!! The cute little rabbit has a special message....standing in front of my bargain pillow cover from "Gatherings" in Georgetown....a PRECIOUS gal and shop!!! I did get some display goodies from her for the GALLERY....she almost sold out of her whole booth!!! The Zinnia wool pin I bought from Nina Miller...?(also a great artist!)....I think was her name at the FOLK ART BARN in Round Top....as well as the FLOWER PRESS made by the people from Colorado on the card above....these are dried flowers on the top of the press....something I plan to do with the grandchildren...from our garden blooms. They had gorgeous pieces framed with nothing but dried flowers...scenes and collages....just amazing things!! He said the trick is the special paper that makes the flowers dry faster leaving more color in them. Then today while it was slow I began to work on a cover for the GUT ART CLASS I'm taking....I had no plan, but we are to incorporate, sewing, paint, words...whatever comes....and this is what I ended up with....it is so personal that I put a frame on it and my favorite Bible story/scripture around it....on a brown bag background....the red is thick reddish yarn I zigzaged with loose threads, a painted collage paper and words I found to cut out....thus the red written part to complete what the brown words say....and really in my heart a celebration of what tomorrow represents for all of humanity for an eternity....He came to save the lost....enough said....have a glorious in heart day tomorrow ...and everyday too! BLESSINGS!!....and thanks to all the people who came to our little spot in Round Top!!....OH!! I wanted to thank Jinx and Nathan for coming!! We sure liked Nathan Jinx....he was a sweetheart....you tell those lazy girls they better be back next year or I'll give their spot to Nathan....teehee....missed you all! Jinx and Nathan have an Antique shop in Glen Rose....going West out of Glen Rose....can't wait to get there some day!!....AND if you ever need any silver replacement this is the place to get it....Antique Cupboard.com ....in Wisconsin....they have it all!! they stayed with us too....a long drive from Wisconsin!!
