Wondrous Whirlwind trip to Warrenton

My dear Hubby and I just returned from a wonderful trip to the Warrenton/Roundtop antique show. I try to go every year and I am always amazed at all the stuff.
The bluebonnets were at their finest and we ooed and awed around every bend in the road.

Curious Goods from Malakoff, Texas had to be my favorite booth of all.
Donna is so nice and talented. She gets it. She knows how to "quirk stuff up".
If you don't know what I mean, too bad. You are missing out on a whole other part of life.

My photos are a little dark because we had storms most of the time we were there.
Galoshes were a fashion must!

These ladies traveled in Diva style...

Forgive me for not keeping up with the name of the vendors where I took photos of their creative displays. It all gets to be very overwhelming.

I just remember this was in a big tent near Zapp Hall.

Texas Rose was up the road from Warrenton in a field with some great vendors.

Fun, fun.

MDH found this pie safe for us to put in our bedroom with the flat screen TV in it.
With the help of two other men we managed to fit it in my SUV, barely!

Of course, you could even find the kitchen sink.
I you decide to go, my advice is to check the weather forecast closely and take a variety of clothes.
Texas weather can have four seasons in one day.

Thank you for your kind comments! It really means a lot to me. It takes a lot of work to be that quirky, LOL.
I will be at Bar W field at Warrenton again in the Fall, so hopefully we will have better weather, right? The rain and wind did put a damper on things, but it was still great fun!
I have added a link to your blog... hope that was alright......

You showed several of my friends at Zapp and of course Donna of Curious Goods. I too am located at Zapp Hall. I was in McKinney this weekend and saw your card in your booth. That's a neat shop. Thanks also for mention of my blog for the Urban Market in Feb.
