Warrenton Vendor hi-light

On Sunday, we took a load to Warrenton and took a little time to walk around since my friends had never been. I was actually surprised at how many vendors were already set up. One in particular caught my attention for the beautiful displays and awesome antiques.
I asked permission to photograph some displays to share with you. This vendor is The Sweet Pea from Athens. Tx. When I received her card, I realized I'd been reading about her shop, Winnie and Tulula. If the shop is anything like her space at Warrenton, I'm sure you will be in for a treat. Check her out at Warrenton ( but I must confess I forgot to see which field her pavilion is).

Nellie Bar the Door- Warrenton is Coming!

  It's getting closer, so to heck with organization!
Forget about straightening the shed!
           Warrenton is THREE weeks away!! YIKES!
 We've got to keep digging............
Treasures are still awaiting our keen eyes!

And keep working because..
Repairs and painting are tops on our agenda!

And we have Fredericksburg Trade Days this coming weekend (March 16-18)
  So, look out people, we may look like a whirlwind barreling through,

but we're loving every minute of it!

Operation Overhaul or A sure way to drive one CRAZY!

This is sister, Betsy and ten days ago I left my job with a major corporation after eleven years (for several reasons, most being economic-related) and decided to become a full time junk  er antique dealer! 
      So far, I'm loving it!  Of course, I've been spending money like crazy without bringing any in, so I think I have this self employment thing a little mixed up!
      One major obective when I decided to do this, was to set up a work area and in that same vein, clean up and organize my shed (i.e. workshop/storage unit and all purpose collection point for junk)!
     Let me just say........... Oh my gosh, what have I gotten myself into??? EEKKK!!  This job would be a challenge for the best of the dream team organizing gurus on TV.
      This is what I have pulled out just from the front (half) of the shed.....so far.
Seriously, there is some "good" junk here among the general.... "what was I thinking" purchases!

 This DOES look like a "ready to go to the dump" pile but there are some cool things here also!
See, this is a close up of a few good pieces from that landfill destined pile!

If you note my shed in the background, everything on the left side and in the 3 stalls in the back plus inside the building is STILL awaiting my thorough overhaul!

So, prayers please for sanity while completing this task! 
Operation Overhaul.... to be continued.
