It's that wonderful time gain that we work so hard for, the spring Marburger Farm Antique show, and while it's nothing but chaos around here with lace and fabric scraps, bailing wire, newspaper, burlap, paint, and cotton string everywhere, it's beautiful chaos! The M.P. crew are all running in different directions, listening to different ipods, answering phones, some indoors, some outdoors, but we all come together for lunch (some crazy vegetable concoction I've made) to talk about what catastrophe we've had with our art projects and laugh about it! It never fails that so many of my "great" ideas flop at the last minute leaving us hours (literally) to start over, hoping to create at least a small amount of magic for the show - Ahhh, the creative life! Round Top, TX is our home away from home and all the vendors and customers are like our second family - just like camp!! We always get that "roasted marshmallows, ghost stories around the campfire, shooting stars with big flashlights, and the serenade of singing crickets feeling!
Love to all of you,
P.S. - This is a sample of our hand-embroidered European, homespun linen "Bloom and Fly" garden bags for the show. March 29th - April 2nd at Marburger Farm in Round Top, TX.
