HOWDY. y’all. go get yourself a cup of hot coffee and sit down for a virtual tour of my friend marta’s shop!!!!! y’all are not going to believe how texas cool it is!!!!!!! man o man. so absolutely ‘yummy’ as she would say. and there is reason why…………lots and lots of photos of her latest vignettes and creations. she is one amazing talent and a very, very inspiring and important person in this industry we call shop owners and vintage re-sale. she has an amazing spirit and she motivates me when i visit her place. MARTA’S ANTIQUES….in Belton, Texas. what a place!!
be prepared. i have a million photos!! i will just let you enjoy the eye candy. marta is known for her cloches…she is the queen of them…her vignettes and her fab, fab displays of random, ordinary objects turned extraordinary. also my friend cindy has several consigned pieces at marta’s as well. i walked away from the shop today with new eyes…..this is the reason why……
i am not the best photographer and my some of my pictures are blurry, but you can get an idea of how fabulous this store is……….drop by next time you are in town.
this is why i like texas so much. so many amazing, talented folks. marta…you are are on that list big time!!!
okay, as if that wasn’t enough…..i have some project photos and home redo photos. i won’t bore you with too much blah, blah, blah…i’ll just show you what i’ve been up to. i have been using lots of found trash and turning it into little projects. dumpster girl….to diva cute. i’ve gone pink cottage CRAZY!!!! look out!!
