Well, this will be my last post on Texas... for awhile anyway. The whole experience has been a blast, right down to the blogging about it. But all good things must come to an end and I need to get into shop mode here pretty soon.
As promised I have my Magnolia Pearl experience to talk about and I have to tell you she was the bombdiggety. I loved her... and of course her booth wasn't all bad either.
Robin Brown and I... it was very kind of her to take time for us as she was so busy setting up her booth. She is very warm and friendly and I enjoyed her very much.
Her booth was over the top fabulous from the sign to the huge tree made from old papers in the middle of her booth that had burlap wrapped wire for vines reaching out all over the booth.
Jo in the vines
This huge bird made of lace with a light inside was at the top flying amongst the fabric wrapped letters spelling Magnolia Pearl
Loved this couch, actually two of them covered in lace
Robin and John
Sandra Evertson, Robin Brown, Jo Packham and I... wait a minute did I dream this... nope that is me!
So, I have to tell you a cool thing that happened while I was standing in the WWC booth. I looked up and saw a familiar face standing next to me, I said, Melissa? And yes it was my old friend Melissa who had moved to Texas 8 years ago. She had her shop down a block from mine for years and we had some good times together but she moved and got married and I heard through mutual friends about her occasionally. Melissa now has 2 huge shops in Bandera called Gunslinger and Cowboy Caliente and is Robin's neighbor, so of course she and Robin are friends. We all got a kick out of that and said what a small world. Anyway it was so good to see you Melissa~

I also promised to show you the booty I scored but most of it still is on route. But I did take a few pics of what I took on the plane with me. I have yards of heavy French linen coming and vintage French fabric, a fantastic wedding cake and a French mirror and...
I bought lots of MOP for jewelry
I love the clock face on this one
Lots of lace
Doll parts... don't ask
And so ends my dream trip to Round Top Texas and running with the Vips...but I still have my little reminders :)
Many blessings to all of you and thanks for coming along with me down Texas roads and leaving such kind comments along the way. I love hearing from you!
