Found.... Vintage Junk Treasures you'll LOVE!

Our first day in Round Top, we made a bee-line for Zapp Hall, where we hoped to find Theresa of Garden Vintage Antiques and Deb of Talking Trash.

First we found Theresa, and I found this treasure in her booth... in true Dixie style, I decided to leave the treasure in her booth and let others decide if they wanted to buy it or not...
I figured, if it was there Sunday night when we came back for the Blog Party, it must belong to me... it was... and it does... (yes, that's Candy hiding in the mirrors reflection!)

We found Deb and Cat Daddy too... it was Cat Daddy's 60th birthday... and we found the little grand-princess, Miss Bella herself... but you'll have to come back to see those pics...
We also found lots more "found things" strung across frames (like mine) and pillows of burlap and linen.  I am sure this technique has a name... but I have no idea what it is.  If any of you junk devotees know what they call this stinging of found things... please share it with me.  You don't have to know WHAT it is to LOVE it!

Hope you're enjoying these little teases... there is entirely too much to put it in one post... so I'm going to try to "group" like items and share them a category at a time!

Until then dear readers... just enjoy the view...

What a lovely blog you have! I love your frame, somethings are just meant to be.
I don't know the correct term for the string filled with all those goodies but would love to have one!

Hey girl I'm grouping my pictures as well. Stop by and see my take on it. Now I've got to check out this 'new to me' meme.
Blessings ;-)

I've always wanted to go to a Round Top show, but alas, have never done so. It certainly seems like a REAL event...as far as shows go. By the way, your frame is gorgeous.

I would love for you to join me for my linky party - Time Travel Thursday. The link is up and waiting for you. ;)

Blessings,

Well, you've gotten my attention. I'm going to follow you so I don't miss your treasures. Thanks for the preview. Round Rock is on one of my lists... (Sorry about my first post - it's been a long day.)
