Absolute Vintage Boutique

There's a resale shop on the west side of town that inspires me and has my heart.  Not only do they have all kinds of repurposed, crafty good stuff, but they offer paint classes and outdoor markets.  I always leave inspired to make something.  This time some milk paint for a ratty antique bed stand and sparkly german glass glitter for some recent flea find antlers. 

DIY's make for a relaxing, fun weekend!

Dog Boots

YEEHAW!  Aunt Tami in Texas sent me home with some cowboy boots for the girls. 
Of course, Pretty Girl Pearl likes them.

Canton Flea Market

Like true flea market junkies - we just can't get enough and had to swing by Canton for First Monday trade days for a few hours.  It sure made for a long day combined with a 500 mile drive back home -- but it was worth it.  I scored a $15 deal on a wooden chair I will repurpose.  It's just perfect to use with my spinning wheel. 
Just another fun-filled 1,600 mile road trip with my momma!

Rod & Custom Show

Mom and I don't stay put for long.  It's on to Austin for the Lone Star Round Up car show full of rockabilly fun. 
I have a thing for old Chevy trucks in rust bucket colors.

2014 Texas Antiques Week

 It's another fabulous road trip to Texas with my momma for shopping and antiques.  The bluebonnets are in full bloom and the temperatures in the low 80's.  This year we are staying a couple nights at a motel in Giddings and drove into Round Top our first day making the newly opened Junk Gypsy Headquarters our first stop. 
It's true, Not All Who Wander are Lost.
Such an inspiring, colorful shop full of good stuff!
 We walked all over Round Top and Warrenton for two days and then Thursday night was the Junk O Rama Prom where the Warrenton oudoor nightlife comes alive with cowboy boots and prom dresses, twinkle lights, music, beer and dancing.  It's the magical kind of night that you wake up the next morning wishing you could do it over again.
