As I veered off the Indy-paced Texas Highway 290 and onto the take-your-hat-off-and-stay-awhile pace of Texas 237 my heart always fluttered in anticipation of what junkin' happiness could be awaiting in those fields of plenty.
One day I took a gravel farm to market road and after a washed out bridge, 'road closed' sign, and a few other country road detours, I arrived at The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell.
It was worth all the extra miles!
The Prairie is truly a special place. If you can't make it there in person--Rachel has a new book featuring The Prairie and all things Round Top, Texas.
However, most importantly, I hung out with lots of great junkin' friends--like Betsy from Sisters Treasures at their booth at Zapp Hall Antiques Show. Yes, it was warm and humid as most days are in south central Texas, but we had a great time visiting and meeting shoppers from one coast to the other...lots of new junkin' friends.
And on Saturday evening, a glorious "Northerner" came through and left us with this beautiful sunset and cooler temps!
Here are a few of my fresh picks.Betsy sold me the wonderful vintage metal peacock garden love seat which I lovingly crammed into the back of Mattie Mae. She actually sold me two! I'll sell one and keep the other...for now.
Until next time sweet friends,
Peace, love, and
all the good stuff to y'all!
