a few pictures from the Homestead Antique Show

I had a blast at the Homestead Antique Show!

It was two full days of setting up in the high 90's, muggy Texas weather, but it was all worth it on opening day.  All the vendor's booths looked so great!  All the customer's really loved all the variety and made several trips around the venue so they would not miss anything!
I even met of few of my fellow bloggers!  That was the icing on the cake!

I made a few pictures to share with you...

I had my jewelry and a few other art pieces in my dear friend
Georgia English Screen Door's booth.  It was very hard to keep up with Georgia.
Not only is she beautiful, she knows exactly how to design not only her space, but other
shops and booths. We had so much fun working together, she is just lovely and so funny!
  She has a great booth at Witherspoons Antique Mall in Granbury, TX
(My white lace jacket got very hot and very dirty!)
My jewelry display..old rakes, a broom stick and a
gear welded to rebar
Love the little shoes and chair

Jennifer Raesz, owner of the Lonestar Antique Mall in Fort Worth
beautiful booth.  I purchased the prettiest white shirt from her!

My fellow Witherspoon Antique Mall friend, Kevin- A  fun booth
with lots of recycled and repurposed creations

Elise with the Purple Goat has the most
incredible mind.  I love the way she can
create the most thought provoking
art pieces...

This is just a drop in the bucket of Elise's
creation.  She is so smart and full of wisdom.
It is always a pleasure to have a conversation with her.

Carmen Castandena had plenty of industrial greatness
mixed with a very feminine style.

I love the way Carmen thinks out of the box

My gorgeous friend Diedra Cockerhan with the Junkyard dog.
She has an incredible eye for putting things together.
She never stops moving!

After the first day..
My sweet friends L-R
Thoma Lou Maddy of Bluff Cottage in Witherspoons Antique Mall
Carmen Casendena Witherspoons Antique Mall and Lonestar Antique Mall
Me -Fat Cow Studio
and Jennifer of Lonestar Antique Mall

This is what I wanted to do after it was all said and done!

I love this typewritter and leather purse

Thoma Lou's gear garden flowers!
She had such pretty antiques in her booth, I am sorry I didn't
get pictures of her chalk full of goodness booth!

These shoes kind of made me sad...don't know why,
they just looked lonely....I must be tired!

Love this couch and chair

Denis of Ruby Grace's cool glasses.  They didn't last long..
And last, but not least.
Denis ripped his pants helping load a piece of furniture.
Jennifer thought it would be just fine to fix the rip with
flowers and a bright pink clip!
What a good sport!

I didn't get a chance to get pictures of all the booths.  
My very talented  friend Pam had beautiful hand stitched pillows, sachets along with very sweet antiques.  
Janice was the bright spot at the show!  Her bright colored, hand painted furniture, yard art and antiques were awe-inspiring.

There were so many wonderful vendors, customers and helpers there.  I came away with some really great friends that I hope to see again soon!

I am not a great fan of 90 degree heat and could say I avoid it at all costs...but looking at your pictures of all the booths I would have gladly spent time in the heat. What a great event and such wonderful images!!! (It's probably just as well that I wasn't there...I would have come home with another typewriter!)

How I would love to come to Texas to be there in person. L.O.V.E. all the creativity, including how-to-fix-a-tear-in-your-pants. :)
Have a great day, Cindy!

I love your lace jacket and have been looking around for something similar in a blouse or top. Haven't found 'just' the perfect one yet but will continue to look.

What a great time it appears everyone had! Hard work too!!
