This chest is not old but they had a pair and they would work well for bedside tables.

This is a 1950's Italian chair with the original leather. I love this for an entry hall chair or in a library.

These family crests are so colorful and fun. They were very reasonable and would be fantastic framed as a group.

I can see brightly colored, bold fabric on these. Or maybe do each chair in a different coordinating stripe.

This is a large henge that has been converted to a wall sconce. Whether lit by candles or electricity, it is such a handsome piece.

Last time I reported on Round Top, I posted photos for days. This time, it is short and sweet. I went later in the week than I usually go so I don't know if the bulk of the good things were gone or if this show wasn't as inspiring. Pictures 3 & 5 are from The Silk Purse Inc. in Atlanta. Margaret Bostick, the proprietor, was very nice and had pretty antiques. It seems like many vendors from Atlanta had attractive things. Georgia girls must have similar taste to Texas girls. I guess that's why it is referred to as the Dallas of the South. Some people would rather take a fork to the eye than walk through fields in 90 degree heat to find the right dusty item for their house. For me, it's the joy of the hunt and the thrill of a good deal. My friend and I usually top off the day with a good meal from Royer's Cafe, rehash everything we bought and discuss where it will go in our houses. Exhausted and dirty, it's a good kind of tired!

PS-For less confusion, I put Marburger Farm and Warrenton Antique Shows (which are near) under the Round Top umbrella. At the end of the day, I can't think straight about where I saw what!
