Dallas Market Trends

I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! Unfortunately I have a head cold, but am trying to make the best of it...I can't hear a thing! lol...Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow. As most of you know I went to Dallas and returned on Tuesday evening. The main reason I went was order supplies to make arrangements, frames and tassels with for my Etsy store. I ended up ordering lots of pretty stuff and am excited to get everything in! I'm hoping it will start coming in next week.



There is always so much to look at at market it's overwhelming! I took pictures of some of the displays and items I found interesting focusing on Easter and spring...with a little Christmas at the end.


Love the foil bunnies and jars with eggs.
Cute moss bunny surrounded by daisies, tulips and lemons. Love the green, white and yellow together...and the birdcages.

Color color color! Look at those pretty butterflies in the pots!

Cute birdhouse...

Cute bunnies in a vase filled with eggs

So whimsical!


Now this is a very elegant bunny...



Pretty wreath with butterflies. Butterflies must be the thing this spring...they were everywhere!

I loved this and am going to recreate it.


I noticed cloches are everywhere too...this one is so cute with the bunny inside.


I thought this basket with the bunnies was so cute.





I've got these bunnies on order...they will be the centerpiece of some of my spring arrangements.


Bright yellow was everywhere.




This shadow box is so cute with a bird nest and eggs in the background. Love it!



And look at this...a bird feeder made from two plates and a bowl...how clever!



My main reason for going to market was to order some pretty silk flowers for my Etsy store... and boy do I have them coming!!



It's always hard to make a decision on what ribbon to order...I love all of it!!



Look at these little miniature gardens...aren't they neat? All of the plants are real.






Looks like bright green is in.



And blue...love the birdcages on the wall.



I noticed tons of birds, birdhouses and cages everywhere.




I took this picture for the colors in that rug. Love!



Cute chair! LOVING the blue!



I took this picture for the design and burlap pillows. Burlap is definitely the thing right now!



Contemporary is defininitely in!



And so are roos! lol...




I have these pretty rooster containers on order...love them!




I thought these would be easy to make. The french writing is really in right now too.




I don't know what these cage ladies are called (that's what I call them) Please let me know if you know. I have been seeing them all over blogland.


Thank you Nana Diana...they are called Santos Dolls.


I was not in the mood for christmas but still had to snap a few pics of some pretty trees.


LOVE the top of this one! Cute!!



This tree is so fun and colorful!


Now this is different...something to do with those extra limbs laying around.



Cute cloche! Love the snowmen inside.


You will find everything at market depending where you go. I went up on the jewelry floor and found these unbelievable cell phone cases...WoW! I swear he said the ones on the right sold for over $400! No, I did not buy one of those...lol.



One thing I look forward to when I go to Dallas is eating! Sherry and I went to several wonderful restaurants but the one that stood out was called Rise #1. The former President George Bush eats there all the time. They specialize in souffles and these were out of this world! Yum! Sherry and I already dug into them when I remembered to take a picture.


I hope you enjoyed my pictures! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. I think I'm going to take some NyQuil and go lay down. I can't be sick...I have to much to do!

What beautiful things. I love the rabbits and the miniature gardens.!

NanaDiana said...

OMGOSH- What eye candy! I love all the things that you saw there. REALLY love that very first photo. That doll (cage lady) is a Santos doll and I think they have two origins, Spainish and Italian. They were considered Saint dolls much like the creche figures we use. They are neat and people either love them or don't care for them at all.

I can't wait to see you working with some of the stuff you have on order. xo Diana

Such pretty stuff, Kristen! It must be a visual overload at times! I love all the bunny stuff ~ the elegant one you show is just beautiful. Can't wait to see what you are going to come up with in your redone craft room! ; )

A Hint of Home said...

What fun that must be to see all the latest items and beautiful eye candy there.
Can't wait to see your new creations.
I hope you feel better soon!

mishebe said...

Love the bright yellow! cute bunnies!

Jeanette said...

Wow! You must have had a blast! So much to look at and all beautiful I might add. Can't wait to see what you are going to make! Hope you feel better soon! xoxo Jeanette

Terri said...

Love it all, but my fav's are the french writing pots, Victoria on the tv show Revenge made the french writing popular with the chair she sits on :), just a little trivia there,

But I also loved the birdcages, the rooster containers and of course the flowers.

Like the others said can't wait to see your Kreations. Feel better.

Wish I had been there to get some blue and white jars! They are impossibl;e to find anymore and I have been collecting them for a long time.... Beautiful pics, glad you had FUN!!!! XO, Pinky

Suzy said...

Thanks for sharing with all of us, Kristen. So much yummy eye candy!

Maureen said...

Love all your photos of spring ideas! I hope you sell some of the spring flowers, cloches and wreaths. Can't wait.

Becca said...
