Textures & Lace




Spring 2011 at Warrenton/Round Top Texas has come and gone but the ideas and creativity I saw first hand is still going thru my brain. It was amazing to see how much this once little show in the back hills of East Texas farm country has grown to miles and miles of shopping.

I can remember when I started visiting for a "Day" trip back in the 80's as a college student needing to find something cheap, now I need to make plans for "days" of shopping and that doesn't mean I will hit every spot....I admit, it's just getting to crazy even for this antique lover.

Still, I had to attempt it and get some ideas for my new home....one obvious trend that is still going strong is Textures...whether in bed linens or decorative pillows, the use of linen, cotton aged with tea and added with vintage lace is still just as popular.

The use of burlap and mother pearl buttons add to the flair of that special piece. I do wish I had taken more pictures, but I got carried away oogling and forgot to take more pictures.....just another reason to make plans for the Fall.

Oh, maybe you can see the pictures, but some used old photos and broken jewelry as added trinkets to pillows....so clear out those junk drawers or old family photos and add them to your pillows.
