On Saturday, I was lucky enough to be able to run over to Athens and check out the grand opening of a great new shop called Winnie and Tulula's.
One enters through the shop Sweet Peas . Which is not slouch itself when it comes to decorating and goodies to decorate with. I've long been a fan of the bedding made by Gloria. Her bedding is truly the stuff sweet dreams are made of. Lovely in color and texture. And "ahhh" factor.
See that gorgeous bedding? (Click on pic to enlarge). LOVED it.
And this table was perfect. Sweet Hub was less than impressed, but he does not really like "girlie".
There were lovely, delish color combo's scattered through out the Sweet Pea store. My current love is brown and apple green and there was plenty of that to be found.
And you know I love me some red. This little area was adorable.
Once you head through Sweet Peas, you step into Winnie and Tulula's. As they say in the blog, "this is not your mother's antique mall". And indeed it is not. And just look at the line up of "who's who":
Curious Goods by Donna & Rhonda,, Garden Antiques byTeresa Cano, and Mindy of Primitiques, Junk Palace by Lilly Bussey, and The Veranda by Maggie Lopez, Ethel's Just Junke, Talking Trash Debbie & Danny York, Country girl Collection's by Diane Taylor, Monochromatic Home by Liz Caudle, Simply Cottage by Pat Williams & Amy Seabolt, Virgins, Saints and Sinners, by Tina Bordelon and Donna Fussel, and Ruff by Margo Arrick.
Loved this odd colection of this and that. Forgive me for not remembering whose booth I was in at the time.
Lit candles afloat in this old concrete birdbath were simply enchanting.
I just loved the patina of this old wall. And the various wrought iron was set off nicely by it.
It was great fun to see Maggie( (The Veranda) ), and to meet Deb (Talking Trash) and her Cat Daddy. I hated to miss seeing Teresa (Garden Antiques) (again). I swear I don't think that gurl and I will ever get to meet. LOL.
The gals said that they had been hit pretty hard through the day and many booths were already picked over by the time we got there. But still lots of awesomeness to see.
This is Teresa's booth. It was quite amazing too. Lots of little lovelies to look at.
And you know I'm a sucker for these. LOL.
So if you get a chance to get over to the corner of Hwy 31 and Hwy 19 in Athens, Texas, do drop in. You won't be disappointed.
