I decided I just couldn't wait until Color Mad Monday to share this wee little sampling of all that awaits you, if you ever make it to Round Top, TX during Antique Week. Enjoy!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Bakelite...

and rustic pottery?

Apparently bottle cap art is quite the thing these days.

The same booth that had the bathing beauty, above, also held a collection of "paintings" by another artist -- one who worked, not with paint, but with tiny bits of colored paper he has collected, along with bits of sheet music and book paper. Many art journalists I know do something similar, but these were magnificent hang-over-the-mantel portraits and such!

I probably left some drool behind in this booth full of luscious braids and ribbons.

The thing is, I could have taken hundreds more color-mad shots, just as yummy if not more so, if I hadn't been so busy just soaking it all in.

Guess you're just gonna have to go see it for yourself, huh?
