All Good Things Must Come To An End . . .

The weekend is almost over and tomorrow I will have to go back to work. I had such a good time with Valine, her aunt and friends in Roundtop, TX for a weekend of antique shopping. It was a much-needed rest from the past couple of months. Despite a couple of would-be roadblocks such as vehicles that don't start, bad weather and airline difficulties, we all ended up at the farmhouse in Fayetteville, TX Thursday night (well, Lisa arrived on Friday afternoon).
Friday morning, we gathered our things and headed out for the day. We were glad to have rain ponchos since it drizzled off and on several times during the day. The weather kept the crowds at bay, but we were not deterred. My first purchase of the day was a wooden box that caught my eye. I have no idea what I will do with it, but I just loved the dovetailed corners and the vendor gave me a great price.

As is our tradition, we took pictures in the bluebonnets on our way back to the house. The rain had cleared up by this time, but the wind was unbelievable! Our hair is definitely windblown in all the pictures (you can click on the individual pictures to see them larger).

Once home, we relaxed a bit and then participated in "show and tell"
where we shared our purchases of the day (we often don't see what the others in our group purchase until then). We all agreed that Pam B should get a prize for the "tackiest purchase" for her bejeweled Christmas Tree. I'm glad that she can see the possibility of beauty in it and even happier that she was such a good sport as we teased her. (We love you, Pam!)

Saturday, we awoke to temperatures down in the thirties!! We layered t-shirts and zipped up our windbreakers and braved the wind and cold air.
Late in the morning, we were thrilled to find garden gloves for sale in one of the booths!! (those are my orange gloves) Here are some photos of some of my favorite booth displays.I guess that I'd better get outside and unload my car now so that I'll be ready to go back to work in the morning!
