I'm Back From Dallas!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm back from Dallas and had a great time with my mom and Sherry. We went to Dallas Market and had fun looking at all the new trends. I ordered some beautiful fall and everyday silk flowers, birds, and containers. I also found more scarecrows to make the scarecrow tassels! Yay! I brought back some beautiful embellishments for frames too. I will get started on some when I return from Branson on Saturday. Whew! Got to get ready for another trip!


As I've said before, I get so sidetracked when I'm at market...there is so much to look at! They have everything for every style you can imagine. Below are pics of windows and accessories that caught my eye.


Loved this showroom window...it's me! lol...Loved the red and roosters. Those lamps are really different too! Mom noticed the butterfly hardware on the side table...too cute!




These roosters were stunning! Roosters are everywhere at market!
These beautiful realistic silk flowers caught my eye too...



I have noticed alot of blue being added in with the red/oranges, golds and greens. I am really loving it! The fabric on those chairs is beautiful!


Mom and I stopped at Tuesday Morning on the way back and found these pictures with the Orangy red and blue background. Hmmmm....I didn't buy these, but I am seriously thinking about adding some of that blue to my house. I guess I better get Chase's room done first though...I can only concentrate and afford to work one room at a time! lol...


.
Butterflies are really big right now! Mom and I were spotting all of the butterflies at market. I fell in love with these pictures...they were beautiful!

Butterfly pillows...

There was blue everywhere at market! It is definitely coming in strong. Loved this birdcage...


Pretty, pretty...

We saw alot of lime green too...love it!

The nautical look is really big right now. Shells, boats, fish, etc...I snapped this picture because I thought those fish were cute!

I've been seeing alot of these cage dolls around blogland. They are really different!



I always see the most beautiful and unique lamps at market...



There are also very unusual items at market...Sherry pointed out how much she loved this chair with the acrylic legs. I've never seen that before! Very cool!

Look at this lizard lamp...Wow! Now that is different!! lol...

Christmas is everywhere! I wasn't in the mood to look at it since it was 100 degrees outside. I could barely concentrate on fall! lol...Very pretty though...

Love the gingerbread stuff...

Wouldn't one of these Santa oil paintings be beautiful over a mantle? Loved the one on top...


I ordered some of these beautiful stems for fall and everyday arrangements...can't wait until they get here! I am ready to get started! I will be making arrangements with fall birds and pumpkins.

We all ordered these cute metal scarecrow yard stakes...they are adorable!

Well, it's time to get packed for another trip! As I mentioned we are leaving tomorrow for Branson. We are so excited! My parents have rented a condo on Table rock lake. Kevin will be fishing alot I'm sure. We are also going to take Chase to Whitewater...he will love that. We are also planning on shopping a little and going on the Branson Show boat on Wednesday evening. I hear it's really neat! We might even explore a cave! We will just have to see...I'll post pics when I return. Have a great week! I hope you are doing something fun!!

Oh no, Christmas decorations already! Although, I do love the gingerbread picture you posted, Kristen! Did it make you feel psychologically cooler? Love those butterfly pillows. I've been noticing that color blue showing up a lot more, too.

Looks like so much fun! Too bad we're not going up to Dallas on our trip home. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Have a fun and safe trip.

Happy 4th.

Loved looking at the pictures from Market. I have been to market in Atlanta a few times and loved it! So much to see and so fun to shop! Enjoy your trip. My Uncle has a house on Table Rock Lake and we love to spend time out on the water and in the outlet malls in Branson too! :-)

Thanks for sharing all the new trends. I am not much for blue inside the house, so hope that doesn't catch on!

I noticed one of the best thing in your blog that is a lots of blue being added in with the red/oranges, golds and greens. The fabric on those chairs is beautiful, wonderful arrangement.
