Warrenton Scrapbook

Even though it's been a few weeks since Warrenton,
I thought that I would show y'all
my scrapbook of photos.

So sit back, grab a drink and enjoy!!!!

A really adorable vignette
from Anne with Fiona and Twig.
She is one of my junking sistas and dear friends.
Not to mention bloggy superstar in her own right.

Another cute vignette done by Anne
in Effie's booth.
These two ladies are such a force!
Effie supplied the goods and Anne made it pretty.
The end result was stunning.

My own fairy blog parents...
I am so privileged to call these two people
my friends.
Somehow I lost the pics from their booth and I'm just sick over it.
I did buy something really cute from them that I'm just gonna have to show y'all later.

This fabulous set belongs
to none other than

If you have never seen her work
then you are missing out!!!
Here's just a small sampling
of her amazing antiques.




Didn't I tell ya?
Fabulous.


These next pics are from my favorite vendor of all time.
Brian and Meloney Russell of

I have to go and see this creative couple
whenever they are remotely close to my location.
When I say remote...I mean anything less than eight hours.

Only these two could make a chicken coop look so good.


So good, in fact, that I bought one and brought it home.
I haven't figured out where it's gonna go yet..

I wanted this set of lockers soooooooo bad.
Mr. M told me it was not only out of my budget,
but he wasn't dragging that all the way back home.

BOOOOOOO!!!!!


This chair made my heart melt.
I was reminded, once again, that it was out of my budget
aaaaaannnnnddd
that I have small children.
Bummer.



                                                                         

Meloney has the most ingenious uses for ordinary items.
This is the only woman I know who can make
old paint brushes look amazing as Christmas ornaments
and makes newspaper into the most beautiful package.

The display of old books had me drooling.
It was embarrassing.
Even The Divine Mr. M dabbed the corner of my mouth for me...honest to goodness.



Brian and Meloney's play with textures and color
is beyond measure.
I just fell in love with these old rolls of string.
My great-aunt used to have several of these.
I remember playing with them as a child.


Now onto some Warrenton randomness...

I just loved this Volkswagen.




These flower frogs just dazzled in the sunlight.


I really wanted this lock but the vendor wanted waaaaay too much for it.
The odd thing is, I looked at this exact same lock from this exact
same vendor last fall.
He actually went UP on his price.
He said it was because he spent a long time adding it to his collection.
I just wondered why he was even trying to sell it.


What trip would be complete without a Jethro sandwich?

I hope y'all enjoyed my pics of Warrenton
'cuz I have a few more to show y'all later.

I'm off tomorrow to do
Relay for Life.
I will be my team's survivor.
I encourage you to donate and give to the
American Cancer Society
as this is such a great organization and almost every single person
has been affected by cancer in some way.

  3. hi,
    Loved your pictures. I met you at Theresa's blog party. I also wanted the metal lockers
    but could not afford them and my husband thought I was crazy to want them in the first place. But I certainly did.
    Keep on writing.

  6. Okay - first - relay... you GO team survivor!!! I think you ROCK!

    Now... I want a chicken coop - I've got your back on the lockers (can't believe Mr. M... geesh - we have to learn that boy some more about junk and your requirements) and the chair? Oh my gosh...

    Cat Daddy and the Trash - ohhhhh lala that's a great photo of the three of you!!!

    I was truly FLOORED by some of the prices out in the cow pastures!!! I probably would have said, "are you KIDDING me?" if I had seen the price for the lock. I think I DID say that over a bowling bag. Yeah, a bowling bag. LOLOL STRIKE!!!

    ;-) xoxo
