Here we are at our hotel in Brenham, the Ant Street Inn. James to left and me to right.
About to set off for Roundtop/Warrenton
Next I will show you some of the pictures from Cole's Show in Warrenton Texas, which was our first stop of the day.
Our next stop was the Zapp Hall show at Warrenton: First booth we stopped in was Junk Gypsies. They have the same booth space every year as do many others who sell there. This pink swans were at the entrance to their booth/tent. I always look forward to see what they have done with their space each year.
Then a few miscellaneous booths at Zapp Hall in Warrenton.
That night we attended her Blog Party and met lots of people, some where I follow their blogs and others that follow mine.It was such fun to put a face with a name. Talking Trash lady had the cutest name tag. It was a paper bag, folded and a face on it with fringe. Everyone was supposed to wear an original-made name tag.
The Cookie Du Monde lady was there and brought samples of her petit fours. She autographed one for my husband with his name since it was his birthday. So I considered this his birthday cake this year. Her cookies were wonderful as well. We ate those on the way home.
There were book signings for two books, "Where Women Create" bu Jo Packman and another book which I have forgotten. There were so many people attending this year that I know it was a huge success. Her husband (St.) Cruz was not there due to his work schedule. His presence was missed especially by James, my husband who likes to talk with him. But there were actually many other men there as well.
The next morning on our way back toward home, we went to the La Bahia show which was great as always with the Flow Blue booths and the German linen booth. I love the atmosphere there most of all the shows.It is in an old German dance hall sited under tall trees with a wonderful old farm and it's buildings across the road. I spent close to an hour talking to Duck at the Flow Blue booth. They have so many pieces to choose from and he is so knowledgeable about the blue stuff.. My husband was again a
sweet, wonderful man and sat over nearby while I talked to Duck. He is so patient with me and it was, after all his birthday weekend. I did not get the pictures yet of the Flow Blue booth I took. Will add later. They also are regulars at the Canton First Monday Flea Market.
This booth below was so cute. They had a neat counter and all feminine touches in their booth. It was at La Bahia also. We surely enjoyed the day on Monday since the windy weather had gone away. We saw Bluebonnets all along the way. Thanks to all who made our time there so great!!!
