Just Junkin in Texas......

I am home from a fast and furious buying trip in Texas..... {I am actually sitting at a desk in my hotel room in Hong Kong to finish this and get it online} Texas is a great chance for inspiration, meeting up with friends, and finding some super props for the showrooms. This is just a smidge of what is there, but I truly have run out of time to post it all . I will truly be posting again another texas segment to show you more fantastic spaces, antiques and people in the near future!
These two adorable gal are the infamous two Teresa's. Teresa who hosts the blog parties at Zapp hall. and T.O.T. {the other Teresa} who has Time worn interiors at Marbuger Farms.
I LOVE this picture of you two.!!


Oh, be still my heart. I want this amazing sewing machine. It was just for display at Magnolia Pearls incredible booth.


Anyone who knows me, also knows that I adore the european miniature theatres. Oh this is a sweet one. I am working on a quaint suite of Theatres in Miniature for my Christmas line. This is some serious inspiration dont cha think!


The Fields, stalls and booths had everything you could think of, houses for dolls.......


Houses for parrots. {look at the creative way to display a chandelier}












Houses for people......


Houses for seedlings....


Houses for birds.............











Houses for flocks of doves......







Architectural parts and pieces.......






Luggage.....






Trunks.......



amazing colors of faded elegance.......


I love a soft palet of bleached pastels......





















And of course the always present and impactfull body forms in all shapes and sizes.....






























This guy was a mess......


I went by later and he got himself together...........


Many beautiful religious icons, statues and saints..........














































The sweet gals at french by design also repurpose these great slips which I couldnt resist...... They have seasonal sales too that you should check out too........ Oh, it was 100 degrees hence the sweaty photo.....The attractive bandage was due to a 13 stitch cut that happened the day before I left for Texas. I think I am going to design some gauze in designer colors and patterns.










Bottles are another item that is so utilitarian but decorative at the same time, especially when it has some age.....


Glass made in the early years had a content of magnesium. When it is exposed to the UV rays of the sun it will turn purple. The more UV...the darker the purple. Yes, these were all clear when first manufactured..... Magic isn't it???




































I have a passion for signs....I don't know why exactly, but something about them how they can make such a statement in decor.







































These two signs are sideways........I just am too lazy to go back and swith them all around....so please turn your screen sideways for the full and true view......











































There is definately so many things in Texas. Something for absolultely everyone.




































This sign sums it up Perfectly I think!

Oh Thank You for taking me along on the Texas Junquing Tour... so many fabulous items, I would have been in 7th Heaven! But I wouldn't have enjoyed 100 degree HUMID heat! *Ugggg* Even us Arizona Desert Gals don't like humidity & heat combined... well, except at the Spa Sauna for 10 minutes at a time. *Winks*

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
