Year of the Horse ~ 2014




~ 2014 ~

Year of the Horse




It was snowy here in central Texas last Friday.

Despite the weather, I joined two friends 

to brave the cold and venture over to Round Top for the

Winter Antique Show @ The Big Red Barn.




Few shoppers and lots of friendly antique dealers

made for a fun day for our trio.

Dedicated shoppers, it's no surprise

we each returned home with treasures.

My favorite buy of the day was this 

charming needlepoint piece that my friend spied.  

She has a keen eye and knew immediately

 that it would be perfect for her home.

~ Beautiful Stitches ~

~ Wonderful Vintage Condition ~




Attached to the hand carved

wooden frame to form a pouch.




Perfect container

for kindling!





Early Iron Match Strike

Another great find at the show!




Together they look perfectly

situated in my friends beautiful home.
