ChiPPy!- SHaBBy! Bliss @Marburger!!!
Last Tuesday was opening day at **MARBURGER FARM**, in Texas ~ AbsoLuTeLy INcrEdiBLe!!! - All UpScale Displays with Unique VinTaGe Finds ~ Reminded me of the Chicago Botanic Antique Garden Show held in Spring!!! This was ChiPPy! Bliss for me!!!!! Unfortunately the prices were over the top insanely high!!! ~ However, I did come away with "two" - To Die For items!!! One was a Unique ViNtaGe Vest from ~ ***"Magnolia Pearl"***~ What an AmAziNg Experience that was!!! My pictures don't do her whole concept/display justice... Robin Brown truly has a LoVe for ViNtaGe Lace!!! The inside was "just magical"!!!!! - Giant tree in the center dripping with old lace on the branches ~ Victorian couches ~ Hugh vintage mirrors ~ Hay 6 inches deep!!! FaBuLouS one on one Customer Service!!! The booth was packed with women 20 - 70 years old... There was that special ***PeRfeCt OutFiT*** for every individual... Almost all of Robin Brown's items are made from scraps of old vintage lace - some are dyed, each scrap uniquely cut... Robin was so nice ~ I told her I came all the way from Wisconsin ~ read lots about her over the years ~ & asked to have my picture taken with her - SEE FOR YOURSELF!!! ThAnk you Robin!!! This women is definitely living her bliss!!!! There are some great video clips of her and her booth on YouTube... -OR- go to www.magnoliapearl.com for pictures of her clothing line... Robin recently married her long time business partner, John Gray... There is a wonderful article with lots of photos of their wedding in "COUNTY DECORATING IDEAS/ROMANTIC COUNTRY MAGAZINE - recently displayed till September 21st - 2009. The other AmAziNg item I purchased were a ***Pair of Old ChiPPy White Windows*** ~ I LOVE THEM!!! ~ Exceptional arched top with diagonal dividers between the glass... These keepers will either go in my bathroom near the tub -OR- in our bedroom... Mariann's partner, Tom is generously hauling all my finds back to Wisconsin for me ~ pick up at the end of this month...
