Ten days. One Junker Mom. One Sweet Girl. Many great new friends. Acres of fabulous JUNK, antiques, and other beautiful, whimsical needful things. Here’s the pics from our trip to the 2011 Spring Warrenton Antique Show and Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top, TX.
Peace, love, and happy JUNKIN' memories, y'all!

Garden Antqs Vintage's enchanting, graceful
space at Zapp Hall -- as beautiful as she is.

I don't think we missed a day at Zapp Hall. So many fun
 vendors and incredible food from Royer's Cafe.

This awesome, funky airstream belongs to the incredible
Paris Montana. Check out www.parismontana.blogspot.com.

We had a wonderful prairie picnic under a big old
Texas star-filled sky with the lovely Rodeo Queens
who are hosting Petticoats on the Prairie April 29 and 30.

Lovely vintage bottles from French Vanilla.

Just a taste of Alice and Jay's wonderful, eclectic style.
 Restyled and funkified to the extreme. Loved their stuff (most of
which was sold in the first four hours of the Marburger Farm Antique Show!!)

Other fabulous Alice and Jay creations!! A dress form floor
 lamp and hand form table lamp!! Junkalicious!!!

Yep! You guessed it -- another too cool Alice and Jay creation -- a bathtub chaise.

My trip to Marburger Farm was complete -- I've been a Magnolia Pearl
fan for many years. Beauty and creativity flow freely here.

My loot!

Texas Bluebonnet fields .. .forever.


 Thanks to Deb and Linda for another incredible 2nd Saturdayz Vintage Market! Here’s a few pics of April’s wonderful market.  Next month the Junk Tribe is on the road doing 2nd Saturdayz Vintage Market on Saturday, May 14 in Snohomish, WA.  It’ll be a fantastic JUNKIN’ spectacular weekend in the Seattle area as Dixie and Linda (aka the Funky Junk Sisters) will also be hosting Junk Salvation in Puyallup on Friday, May 13 from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  So there’s plenty of time to hit both of these  Junktabulous shows!!

 Hey, y’all!! We’re back from a fun-filled ten days in Texas and packing up for this weekend’s one and only, incredible 2nd Saturdayz Vintage Market at Magnuson Park, Hanger #30, 7400 Sand Point Way NE in Seattle. Here’s a sneak peek of the goodies The Garden Cat is bringing – lots of great vintage garden and floral stuff!! We’ve even created glittery Easter eggs topped with a dab of moss and vintage flowers. Deb and Linda have filled the old hanger for the April 2nd Saturdayz to the hilt with some of the best vintage and repurposing vendors and crafters around. It will be an inspiring show full of whimsy, one-of-a- kind items, and enough springiness to encourage even our stubborn northwest winter weather to warm up and let the sun shine down.

By the way, my next blog post will include all the news and pics from our roadtrip to Warrenton, Round Top, and Marburger Farm Antique Shows. Safe to say, junkin’ happiness abounds there!!

See ya at 2nd Saturdayz!!

Peace, love, and all the good stuff, y’all!
