Texas part III

Where Women Create, had a booth at Marburger to sign copies of Jo Packham's latest book "Inspiration" and Gina Galvin of Peacock Park was signing the latest magazine as she was the cover girl. Gina and her posse' put together this booth by beg, borrow and buying all these wonderful things. Kelly worked hard on the displays and it shows, the booth looked amazing. I got to hang out all day and visit with some fantastic people that stopped by.


Jo enjoying the great weather we had during the show.

The lovely Sandra Evertson joined us for a couple of days and I enjoyed her so much. We had fun shopping Marburger and Clutter.
I had already gotten to know Sandra some as we had spoken on the phone and she had interviewed me for the feature article in WWC.

Jo and Gina working hard...

One of my favorite artist stopped by the booth, the infamous Cody Foster... a real cutie!

After signing all day at Marburger, Rick the owner treated us to a party... We had the outside tent at Royers, we sat on hay bales and enjoyed the evening air. It was sooo nice. The food was wonderful and plentiful. It just kept coming, pork, quail, salmon, shrimp and a pasta dish that was to die for. For desert there was Royers famous pie, I don't know how many different kinds of pie were passed. I was so impressed with Rick, what a great guy!

I can't begin to explain all the booth's and tents, it goes on and on. I didn't take pictures like I should have... I just enjoyed and soaked it all in. Here are some amazing booth displays. I don't know who they all belonged to, so I apologize ahead of time.
This booth however is Linda and Ludmil of Willow Nest. They are a fabulous team and are extremely talented as you can see.

This fabulous vintage wedding cake display... now belongs to me :)

Fabulous chandeliers chiming in the breeze... if you listen closely you can hear them.

And of course, I brought some of this fabulous ribbon home

Don't you love this vintage paper wreath!

A collection of artist pallets... loved this!

Visiting with Carolyn Westbrook, I bought a fabulous French mirror from her.

Here we are in front of the silver camper Junk Gypsies designed for Miranda Lambert. Very cool. Jo and I did go to Prom, it is a party hosted by the Junk Gypsies and people are all dressed up.

Dressed for Prom...

More fabulousness...

Shelley's booth from Sweet Pea Home... she is so talented.

I imagine you are getting tired of all my pictures but I do have one more Texas post left in me... I have to show you some of my goodies I brought home... most is being shipped so I don't have pictures of all of it. And last but not least Magnolia Pearl.
Thanks so much for your comments, I do love hearing from you.
Many Blessings

  18. Hi Rebecca,
    i am a new follower.I found out about you through Theresa, whom i met one evening in marburger.
    Unfortunately, i was unaware of the location of all the blog ladies' booths. (the main reason i went, )But, i did meet Janet who was set up inside a metal building and then Theresa later walked up and said hello.
    I too, got some great shots of booths, but none were the same as yours, except for Jo Packhams.
    I was thrilled to see all the photos you have taken. i really wished i hadn't missed the spot, but i'm hoping to return in the fall, with my trusty old map and camera ablazin'
    your blog is just the dose of inspiration i need each day.
    I haven't posted my Marburger pics yet, but i will as soon as i can.
    come by and visit me, at
    i have a pict of janet and me in the bunch.
    sincerely, marilyn
