Scored goodies at Round Top ...

Last weekend's haul seemed rather small. But, oh, what I have in store for these little gems!


With the metallic-trimmed, vintage velvet collar in dark red, I'll be adding to my collection of hand-sewn pillows. This jewel is going to become part of a handsome pillow I'll construct like the inspiration ones sold by Elephant Walk Antiques (left). I think it will work well with my latest project pillow (right).



Then, there are those time-worn watch faces. Each will become elements in art collages as part of a series I've been working on this past year.

Two of my 'time' pieces are almost completed: Plenty of Time (left) and Time Passes (right).



And, my customized paperboy bag from Austin Woodhenge, with stamped initials and requested numbers, came within days of placing my order at the Marburger Farms Antique show. Thanks, Kathy! It's perfect for my flea market junkets and shopping at the farmer's markets.
