FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

She is back!

        A long time since my last post, I know. Let's not interfere with life, and mine is a stove with every burner going at the same time. It is all good though. I have travel a little, to the big shows and some antiquing in Austin. Some of the pictures were meant to be post a month ago, today is finally the day. The shows were somehow disappointing. A lot of my fav dealers were MIA and I saw a lot of trash with huge tickets on it. What is up with that? I like rust and industrial, shabby and time worn, but trash is trash. I have the feeling curve picking was the source for some of the stuff. You can get a car grille with the rat nest included for the affordable price of 400.00. The buffet is only 300.00, the cucarachas eggs are free, compliment of the house. Yikes! There was some inspiration and we did have a good time, so I take that.
                                      Some ramdom shots of Cleburne, Antique Alley.






                                              Ramdom shots of Zapp Hall in Roundtop
                                         Booth of Diane and Roger from  Blends in Georgetown. Their space was      
                          exquisite, my camera run out of juice so this is the only picture I  took of their booth.



          Do you recognize the stuff? It belongs to the Queen, Ms Theresa Cano of Garden Antiques







                            These are shots of some of the vendors at The Texas Rose show.



  This vendor has a store and web business called Perfectly Flawed. Her stuff is amazing and so much my style. I spend a long time there.








 And last but not least a shout out to Ms Sharon Taylor from Sharon Taylor Made. My pictures don't do justice to this artist creations. I stay at her booth the longest and I do so admire her talent. Maybe I can be as creative when I grow up.








That is all folks. I'm a little bit frustrated because my pictures failed to capture all the beauty that was there, so my advice is to come on down one of this days, you won't regret it. Blessings, Marta.
