Inspired...along the road to roundtop, texas

I'm joining Debra for Inspirational Friday...She is an inspiration, herself...




All these photos of junk and the people in them inspire me...my junk sistas.
Charlotte, sister, Sherri, first cousin, Me, Pat, first cousin, Suzette, sister, (In tree)Donna, first cousin, and Susie, friend                     soul sistas...

go see and hear about her fun time!

and now in my 50th year, I do declare, that girl trips turn better with age, seasoned well with laughter, as we licked the frosting on the cake,  flavored junkalisciously...
                                                                                        with Rusty, Chippy sprinkles on top...
                                                                                                                                my favorite~







Spring in Round Top!  Rusty tub and colorful chairs...







Debbie of Talking Trash, one of the best bloggers EVER...and her Cat Daddy...said he wore the rope 'round his neck...'case he felt like buying something, he'd choke himself, lol. They are just very genuine  folks with wonderful wares...beautifully displayed.  They've been at this a long time and are so generous to share their wisdom...




A new friend...Sporting her Magnolia Pearl vest...She was set up at Chelsea's Meadow...


more loviliness...












Meloney and Me!


The Seed Box was right at the top of my List ~ And Meloney and Brian did not disappoint!  
They were set up right by Royers Cafe at Zapp Hall. I turned around, from eating my yummy chicken salad and I saw this...




and almost choked, I knew it was The Seed Box, right off, with their signature style....Oh my Goodness!

She is so pretty and seemed so sweet and of course Mega talented...
Go to their Blog to see more! Debra does their blog and she does a great job!
If you live near Missouri
don't miss this:
Spring Open House and Barn Sale
April 29-30
9:30-5:00

I do have some Missouri Friends



The first tents I spotted at Zapp Hall in Warrenton were my friends, Mindy and Robelyn...and it felt so good to see some familiar faces....Look how awesome they had done up their places...and the stuff inside was so enticin'~ we had to do a little shoppin'!    My camera went kapooey, on the way to Round Top,so I am having to borrow all my pics,  here is a good link, David is a fab photographer, and I'm sure he will be adding more as the week goes on.


I bought the globe, that I passed up at Mindy's last time...but forgot to bring it home, with all the blog party excitement...But that is ok, just another good excuse to go see Mindy again and do a little more shoppin'!


Last, but certainly not least, I got to visit with uber talented, yet humble Margo again, AND Meet live for the very first time, MY TAMARAH!!!!! of Shabby Vintage Junk... All the way from Australia. She is just as vivacious in Real Life, as she comes across in blog land...and the cool thing is, we meet up over a pile of junk, just by pure chance...I might not have recognized her, if I hadn't just posted those u-tube videos of her...it was a neat meant to be moment!


Debbie, Tamarah, Lezlee, Rho, and Margo at Theresa's bog party!  Thanks for taking the pic, Lisa.

There were some other bloggers there...I had visited their blogs but---
now that I've met them and exchanged cards I'm heading to visit some more!




Hey,                   Are you inspired to start making plans for Fall or Spring!??



Round Top or Bust! get your Ruffles READY and put the pedal to the metal!


I've got more pics of people and things that inspired, but gotta' take a break!  You probably need one, too!
