Hey, Y'all! If you've got a teeny bit of the winter blues--take heart (it is Valentine's Week after all!) Spring isn't that far away. Around here in south central Texas, tree leaves are unfurlingdaffodils are blooming, and I wake up to the most celebratory song birds each morning, so Spring really must be in the air. 

Another harbinger of the upcoming season is the Spring line-up of FABULOUS Antique and Vintage Market shows!! This past weekend, The Urban Market Houston Antique Show gave many of us spring junkin' fever with wonderful vendors, great antique and vintage pieces, and loads of inspiration. 

My first stop at The Urban Market was to Garden Antqs Vintage. Sweet T had her usual wonderful fresh farmhouse style going full tilt!

Also from Garden Antqs Vintage, faded pink ballerina

 slippers balance just right with chippy white. 
Love this mix of suitcases and dishes from 
Garden Antqs Vintage at  The Urban Market Houston.
 More farmhouse freshness could be found at The Seed Box Antiques. Hailing from Missouri and "Dealing in useful Junque," I found plenty of gorgeous ideas in their Urban Market Houston booth.

Such a pretty vignette! Love the wonderful linen

 bags they make and lavender is always a welcome addition.
  I also saw lots of great pieces at Fun Dustrial's booth at The Urban Market. 

 Fun Dustrial's vignette really celebrates Spring! 
Fun Dustrial also had this inviting vignette. 
Isn't this red retro glider fabulous? Also,

love the fresh flowers in the vintage thermos'. 
Flown the Coop had a bountiful abundance of playful industrial pieces, including this great sign and kitchen island made from old lockers.

 More cottage and farmhouse finds were at JHill Designs' booth. Lots of galvanized pots, buckets, and cans mixed with 

fresh flowers and wonderful shabby porch furniture. Doesn't this double rocker just beg for  a good friend and a long visit?

 Inside their booth more antique garden loveliness awaited...

 This flower fairy just makes me happy! 

Even a little rain couldn't dampen the smiles and beauty of all the beautiful garden vignettes at The Urban Market Houston Antique Show. 


Until next time, 
Peace, Love, and all 
the Good Stuff, y'all!!


  1. Hey friend, what a great job you did of capturing all the goodness that was at this show. So glad you came out. Just one thing, that last booth is actually Judy Hill's booth, JHill Designs. She does such an amazing job at every show she's at. See you soon!

    1. Hey, Theresa--Thanks for your kind words! Oops!--I changed it to JHill Designs. I thought I picked up her card and then couldn't find it. She did do a lovely job, as did all the vendors at The Urban Market Houston. I really enjoyed taking everything in and getting so inspired--even in the rain! xxoos
      Peace, love, and all the good stuff, sweet T!

  2. Thank you so much for coming out to the Urban Market Houston Antique Show this past weekend - Love all of your photos and your blog. Thank goodness it only rained for a few minutes during the show - and turned out to be a great weekend for all. I hope you found some great things!

    1. Hi, Jackie--Thank you for stopping by to check out the blog and leave such a lovely comment! I've always heard such wonderful things about your show and am so delighted I finally got to attend. It surpassed my expectations and gave me a heavy case of "spring fever." I did find some unusual, fun treasures. I may try out my green thumb and plant miniature "fairy gardens" in them. Hope to catch up with ya down the blacktop again soon. Peace, love, and all the good stuff to ya!
