Picture this!

Lately, I've been on a photo display kick. This afternoon, I found a frame that I had left in the workshop and decided to do something with it. My husband says it is HIS shop. Whatever. I would rather that he claim the kitchen.

Since I have a suitcase full of doileys and laces, I sorted through them until I found one that was a suitable size. I draped it over the wire on the frame, fanned it out and stapled it to the frame. I like the look. I will most likely make more of these.
Before my shopping trip to Warrrenton, I saw a door mortise used as a little shelf on Becky's blog so I added them to my mental shopping list. This one was bigger and a little different than the others. It looked like a great place to attach a photo. I love shopping up there. I wish that I lived closer. If I did, I would be there every day it's open. (except when it is killer hot)

Mega-shopping in Warrenton

Part of the fun of shopping at Warrenton is the friendly faces I see. Here, I am standing with Debra, Robelyn, Cindy, and Sandy. People come from all over to participate in the fun. I wish that I could bottle all of the creativity that is wandering around the place. I also wish that I could post the links to their blogs, but Blogspot is being a brat not being nice today.
I also stopped in to see Theresa. She hosts a super blog party that I love to attend. I sadly missed it this year. :( My time was split between seeing my Mother-in-law, my parents, and SHOPPING!
Since I only got to shop for 2 days this time, I didn't get to go everywhere I wanted. Most of the people in this line were headed to Marburger Farms. Maybe next time. There were cars as far as the eye could see. It took us about 15 minutes to travel 1/2 mile.
You never know what you will find. If a giant moose is on your shopping list, you're in luck!
It's amazing how many lovely treasures can be packed in one tent. I filled up the back of the truck at this spot.
This sign would be fun at a birthday party. I would have liked taking more pictures, but when I am shopping, I am on a mission and forget to take my camera out of my pocket.
I found the perfect way to cool off at Hilltop. Now we're talkin'! It sure was nice to sit in air conditioning for awhile.
Apparently, they move the cows to another location during Antiques Week since cattle do not normally go shopping. Better watch where you step. We are in Texas!
