So, you know I DID go to Round Top. Went through Marburger and Warrenton too. Honestly, if you are looking for it you would most likely find it somewhere on that stretch of road. There are permanent buildings open on most every week end. When I went, there were a lot of tents already set up and stocked. My interest was to stop at the Junk Gypsy
The store is pretty small and it is filled with manufactured goods. T-Shirts, Boots, jewelry, candles...all Junk Gypsy manufactured and all with "We are TV stars" prices. T-shirts (and we are not talking great quality either) were $35.00. You really had to want to advertise for the Junk Gypsys to shell out that much.
Now, in all honesty, I don't like to pay to advertise for anyone. Also, they ARE T.V. "stars" so I guess it goes with the territory. Just be forewarned, if you go expecting to see original/new/creative things you will be disappointed. I took pictures of the only sorta original items. Glad I made the stop though, because now I know.
All in all, a great trip and all the bluebonnets, Indian blankets, Indian paintbrush etc. made it a beautiful drive.

|It's rare for me to find sweet little planters that are in great shape, but this little lady is perfect.|
|LOVE the colors on this inkwell set and the cherubs, well, that meant I HAD to have it.|
|Bought this off E-Bay because the color was delicious! I will keep one to hang in the kitchen window.|
|Went to Hobby Lobby, they were having 66% off summer. Picked up two of these screen/trellis. Found the half planter at Sally and knew just what to do with it.|
|On it's way to the booth.|

|Supplies from the Dollar Tree...cute paper plates, long straws, optional round coasters, foam butterflies/bees|
For bracelets or necklaces, make your holes much further apart, then clasp them in the back. For long necklaces, use a small envelope to hold most of the chain or tape it to the back.
|This is the finished flower.|
The coasters are easy to put a pin through and add another shape and different texture. My Dollar Tree had blue and green ones, pink would be wonderful to find.
Yes, I forgot to add the butterfly and bee to my arrangement, sigh. But it's already at my booth. Please use your imagination to see them there! (())
This makes a bright, happy, fun display. I'm happy for you to pin or share, but would appreciate a link back.
Thank you for your visit, I appreciate your comments and follows and always try to return them.
Until next time, ya'll bee sweet!

Here are my "finds":
Wonderful old paint by number and a HUGE chandelier! Could not pass up the chandelier. It was priced at $15.50, the glass is beveled, and I could see a lot of projects to be made from it.
|Beautiful paint by number...Love the colors !|
|HUGE light fixture.|

For my "make", was asked if I could make a trellis for the Garden Room. Well, of course I could. Started with a pre-made bottom, then added to it. Used a finial from the end of a curtain rod, a shelf bracket, and lattice that you can buy for .99 at Home Depot . They cut it in half for me for easier handling.
The first "make" of anything is usually the most difficult and not the best. Putting this one together gave me some ideas on how to make the next one, or two. Stay tuned !
Thanks for your visit and your sweet comments. I appreciate them and always try to return comments and follows. Until next time, ya'll bee sweet and stay safe.

The next "find" came from a sweet friend who will bring me things she finds that she knows I will like. If I'm not home she will leave them on the porch. I love coming home and finding a gift ! Here is the sweet lamp base she left:
