Round Top Treasures

On a whim, Mr. 58 and I decided to make a quick trip over to the fields at Warrenton yesterday. So many fellow bloggers across the country wish they could make this trip and for us it is too easy....just an hour drive along the backroads of central Texas where we live. We left home in the morning and were at our first stop by old dance hall that serves as an antique venue..La Bahai. We attended a wedding reception a few years ago in the same spot. It is a graceful white frame building, wood floors, with large screened windows on all sides. And it sits right in the middle of a pasture surrounded by large oak trees. I remember the night of the wedding, walking through the pasture in my high heels, trying to avoid the mud puddles from a recent rain.

Next stop were the fields at Warrenton...We parked in a cow pasture and hiked the highway to our favorite spots, ate a barbeque sandwich, and visited with many of the dealers from around the country. Theresa from Garden Antiques Vintage, a fellow ACM dealer, had set up outside of Zapp Hall. Loved her ironstone displays and especially the "living room" with red wagon coffee table and wonderful framed flag print. It was a gorgeous day, and after several trips back and forth to dump our stuff in the truck we decided to head home.

Among the many piles of burlap and rust I picked out some ceiling tiles, silver and ironstone to add to Booth 58. So fun to spend the day with fellow junk hunters, in my own backyard!
