Back to Warrenton

 It was a cold day.
A cold and windy day.
But shopping went on!
 
As someone who considers herself a
"paper artist"...
doing collage, altered books, mixed media....
there are supplies like you cannot
imagine at the Texas Antique Weekends...
often just called "Roundtop".
 But I didn't buy any supplies.
I have enough to set up my own booth!

I did buy a Santos head (like the one above)....

I also bought a piece of sculpture (bird in a hat).....
 forgot to take a photo...
will show you later....
 
I would LOVE to have the door below....
I would hang it on a wall....
 
 Anything you want is there!
You should definitely plan to go one day.
 Loved the bus!
 
And I do have a thing for lanterns and bird cages.....
The one below is a lantern..... I did NOT buy it...

Round Top, Texas is pretty much in the middle of the whole event....
the whole event stretches for miles.
I typically prefer Warrenton, Texas..... south of Round Top.
We also went to a lot of booths/tents north of Round Top yesterday.
 
 
It's ALL good!
You would LOVE it!!!

Look at you having fun! This would be so dangerous for me -- I would surely buy more than I could get home on a plane! Thanks for "taking us along."

Yes, I would love it. I've read about Round Top and Warrenton - maybe some day. I'd have to bring a pick up truck!

I know I would love it! I get confused by it all though when I read blog posts about it because it's soooo massive!

Wowwers! I love the doll heads of course- as well as the door. There's so much you can do with doors these days!

I'm pea green! I'm going to try again for next year. I know it was cold this year...seems better than hopping hot. More great photos and I'd love to reach my hand through the screen and pick some of those treasures!
