Round Top Antiques Week and Marburger Farm

Round Top Antiques Week is wrapping up today. I was there last weekend and stayed over for the opening of the Marburger Farm show on Tuesday. In addition to the wonderful vintage and antique pieces, it is always a treat to see the creativity of the vendors at Marburger. This year I was struck by these gorgeous paper flowers at Melanie Mills Designs.

And this wonderful "gnome throne" by Polly Hitt of Special Effects Antiques and Design in Tyler, Texas.

And those were just the extra touches!

Metal and industrial pieces seemed to be the ticket. There was a plethora of car and truck grills (the first two are from South Porch Antiques in Parma, New York, and the last is from Recycling the Past.)

These great pieces caught my eye—the bins are again from South Porch.

And I loved this refurbished metal furniture at the Time-Worn Interiors booth.

If I could have gone home with anything, it would have been this rack of vintage seam binding from Rubbish. I didn't come home with it, but I did find out that Mo, the owner, has a booth at Homestead and Friends here in Fredericksburg.

This turquoise box from Monsoon Imports did not come home with me either—although it went with a friend—

but this turquoise stool from Country Meadows Antiques did!

As well as some of this beautiful glass from the "Blue Glass Man" better known as Matt White from Recycling the Past.

Another treat was running into Suzi Q of Q Weddings and Alina of la Dolce Vita both of whom are shooting the wedding we are doing this coming weekend. They had cameras in tow, so you may want to check out their blogs for some real eye candy from the show.
