Timeless Elegance Served in Large Portions in Shelby, Texas

Spring was in the air and it was time to pack and head off to Harmonie Hall Antique Show held in the pretty village of Shelby, Texas (Approximately 12 miles from Round Top). It is quickly apparent that the loyal groups of repeat vendors and buyers relish the small-town intimacy found here. The whys and wherefores of this attraction are instantly recognizable. The gently rolling hills, pretty homes nestled into the landscape, farm, and ranch life of those early years, seen here in abundance, create a happy ambiance. Couple this with the stunning antiques and collectibles for sale, this is a must see show.

I decided to showcase my latest collection of custom made pillows, table runners, accessories and gifts created from a selection of beautiful antique and vintage European linens dating from 1800’s to 1950’s. This collection was inspired by the stylistic relationship between fashion and furnishings, history and love of textiles; draping, pleated linens, silk ribbons embellished with vintage brooches, floral appliqué’s and monogrammed, picturesque and embroidered pieces. I especially like to work with linen as I find it a seductive combination of high quality and understated elegance. Each piece was created in much the same way as that special designer dress, a one-off creation, hand crafted offering simple and timeless elegance served in large portions...
