eyeballs on earrings!!!!

Dust off yer cowgirl boots and join me for a few more pictures.

It's almost time to pack up and head home. We didn't get as many pictures today because of a sudden rain and hail storm. The temperature went from 105 to 70 in less than 5 minutes. I'm not sure that I have ever welcomed a hail storm like I did today.

I promised a few pics of Lindsey's new Skip 2 my Lo jewels. These are my favorites! The eyes are from a doll found in a Paris flea market and the little blue flowers are made from shells. Aren't they fun?!

Her silver bracelet is made from a silver victorian hair brush and the ring is an antique frozen Charlotte from London. If you have the pleasure of meeting Janet, ask her to tell you her story of frozen Charlotte. It is mesmerizing.

A beautiful necklace made with antique rosaries. So, what do you think? These one of kind treasures each come on an antique photo with a story written by Janet on the back and a history of where each piece came from.

Here are a few steps we took around the tents before the rain came.

And at the end of the day I count my blessings that I am able to share this fun with my parents and my daughter. Tomorrow is our last full day and then we will make the 16 hour journey back to Georgia. Good times are tucked safely away and I treasure each and every one!

And a footnote to Sue. Everyone's face lit up when I mentioned your name and big hugs and love were sent your direction. YOU put a smile on all of our faces.

More Marburger Lovelies

It is official...Texas is hotter than Hades! The heat has driven Jay to drink and the rest of us to try and swim in our ice chest. We are tried and true South Georgia heat and humidity folks but this is HHHHOOOOTTTT! Good is supposed to be 104 tomorrow. So, to all of you out there who were wishing they could come to Round Top and just couldn't make it...sit back in your air conditioning(and thank your lucky stars for that cool) and enjoy our pictures. Today we have more lovely looks from Willow Nest, Around the Bend, Rubbish and more.

OH how I wish I could afford Betty Lou's!

If you ever get a chance to see Janet's SKIP 2 MY LOU creations you need to GO! They are fantastic, fabulous, slendiferous, and all things yummy. Now, if you are hoping to come to Marburger to buy some of her jewelry tomorrow, you need not come because my daughter bought it all today! This was her first encounter with Janet and she spent most of the day drooling over her treasures. She is incredible. I will show you what Lindsey Loo bought tomorrow.

Lastly, a beautiful Happy Birthday to Robin. Ms Magnolia Pearl is one of a kind! She gave my Dad his very own Gypsy Johnny shirt today. He spent the rest of the day stylin' around town. He says that he can't wait to get home and wear it to his Bible study. My Mom may have to get her a stick to beat the ladies off! Turn your air conditioner down for me and have a great evening.

marburger pretties

Today I have lots of pretty pictures taken around Marburger but first, I wanted to show you a picture of my favorite things we made for this show. I found these 2 old truck horns and couldn't figure out what to do with them until last week. Jay made them in to wall sconces and I just think they are perfect! We sold them today. Now, sit back and enjoy these lovely pictures from House Wren, Time Worn Interiors, Sweet Pea, Laurie Evans, and Magnolia Pearl. I hope they inspire you!
