Antique Alley 2018

One hidden benefit to our home in Texas is that we are only 1 mile from the main Antique Alley shows.  Some may feel this is a negative because of the added traffic 2x each year.  We don’t!

This year was surely a wet one, so it was fortunate that we went on Friday before the deluge of the weekend commenced. 

Each year, you really don’t know what you will find.  While there are vendors that we see from year to year, there are also new booths and treasures to find.

My first find was this cute pair of scissors!  I just love how well they fit my hand and can’t wait to use them at my long-arm.

Cute new to me scissors.

The old/antique quilts I found at Antique Alley actually fell into two categories.  First were hand-quilted cotton beauties:

The second category were non-cotton and mostly polyester.  I have never came across so many at one time before:

Of course, the biggest purchase we made this day is the beautiful fountain that fits perfectly outside my kitchen window.  We have been looking for something special for quite a while and was so happy to find it.  A big thanks goes to Portillo Concrete Patio Furniture and Alejandro Portillo and son.  

As you can see, we had lots of help, including our grandson, Hunter.  I can’t wait to get it painted and filled with water, it will be so beautiful!

Finally, with Halloween just around the corner, I couldn’t resist taking this special selfie.  I see a profile picture coming on 🙂
