Round Top {Spring 2012}

I just got back from a day out in the "fields" of Warrenton for antique week. If you've been following my blog a while then your familiar with the biggest antique show in Texas that happens around these parts twice a year. It's basically two weeks of a 40 mile stretch of antique vendors setup with their junk. It's pretty much awesome, exhausting, overwhelming, inspiring and fun wrapped up in one outing. The exhausting part comes from pushing a double stroller with two kiddos in the heat. The overwhelming part is that it's HUGE and I always forget where I am and where my car is parked. I'm happy to report that this go round was mildly tiring and I remembered where I parked. I enjoyed just browsing and snapping some pics to share with you all. I almost got out of there without a thing. I was less than 20 yards away from my car when I spotted a cute rusty egg basket for $10 that I just had to have. I'm proud to say that I didn't have anything tied to the roof of my car or sticking out the back window on this trip. My husband's proud of me too.

Here's a little taste of Texas Antique Week....

  2. Very neat! I've always wanted to go antiquing, but haven't done it yet. I think I'm afraid I'll want everything and then get home and realize I didn't need it all. Good job for getting only one small item!
