When I made my flea market purse to use in Warrenton I got so many compliments on it! Everyone encouraged me to make more of them....so I did...and I will be selling them at "The Barn Sale" in November.
So far I have about 9 finished, and I plan to make many more...but I thought I would give ya a little peek in to what I have been filling some of my time with these days. Every one is "one of a kind" and I really haven't decided on prices yet....for me that is the hardest part! I would love to know what you think!

Event though it's a long way off until November, I have been working on things I will be selling at my booth at "The Barn Sale" in Gonzales, TX. This year I will have a 10ft X 10ft booth to fill and decorate with all sorts of handmade treasures. So save the dates, Fri & Sat Nov 2nd & 3rd and be ready to shop!
I just made this welcome banner with the idea to have it hanging in my booth just for decoration, but I think I will make a few more to sell...changing them up just a little so no 2 are exactly alike.
I have so many ideas of things to make for my booth, lets just hope I can get them all done!
Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear from you! Lisa Phillippi
That's why I haven't posted in such a long time!! So this is my first post from my brand new computer...and so much has happened since my last post (like 3 months ago) I don't even know where to start.....so I'm just gonna post some of my pictures from Warrenton and Round Top because these pictures were still in my camera....and I just got brave enough to try to uploaded them ....it does take me a while to figure all these things out....remember I am a blond!
About the time Warrenton and Round Top Antiques week started we were short handed at work, and I was working more than usual, but I was determined I was gonna get to go....more than one day!
Because in only one day, you can just barley scratch the surface, and there is still so much to see!
I did buy this beautiful purse, and I love it! It's from one of my favorite vendors Barbara McNally, from Houston, Tx her business is "Whimsical Bling"
Sometimes when your there, it's just so overwhelming that you forget to stop and take pictures! I'm glad I did take some...it's crazy how quick you forget what you saw!
We were there for the opening day of Marberger Farm, was a part of the friendzy at Magnolia Pearl's Booth! I absolutely love her clothes...I bought a few pieces to add to my collection.
I think we (my friend Yuki and Myself) made 3 trips up to Warrenton..or was it 4 trips? Now I can't even remember...We saw this amazing vintage trim from Europe...it really was to die for...I wish I could have bought some of every spool.
I went toTeresa Cano's Blog party and got to hang with some famous ladies:
On literally the last day of the show, on the drive home, Yuki made a turn around, so we could go take pictures of the cutest little barn in Texas!
We continued on the way home, and were talking about how sad it was to be over, and that all our fun and our money was gone, then we stopped at Buckey's for a bathroom break, and when we came out to to the parking lot to get back in the car...there is was in all it's glory!!! The Magnolia Pearl silver stream.....it's so much prettier in person...The paintings on it are amazing! It seemed like a sign to remind us that in life, you never know what is going to be around the next corner.
I hope you enjoyed my ramblings and I would love to hear from you!!! Lisa Phillippi
My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
