A tribute to my "Home Sweet Home" in the form of a Texas-themed treasury by new Etsy shop owner, Megan of Salvaged Space. Also a Texas girl, Megan has curated this fabulous collection of items from Etsy sellers across the Lone Star State entitled Texas Love.
vintage Salvatore Ferragamo riding boots in Lone Mountain Phoenix's shop! Yes...they were my size. SIGH! I'm also loving FifiDuvie's print "Oh Darling, Let's Be Adventurers."
Donna Walker's original oil painting Goats Do Roam seems to depict a landscape "home, home on the range," near the Dallas/Fort Worth area, from which she hails; and Material Recovery's lampshade is just about as unique as it can be. I absolutely love the three-tiered design.
The vibrant colors of RanchVintage's tangerine orange Fire King Rainbow pitcher, HappyBDayToMe's fluorescent pink deer antlers and DeathMachine's mustard yellow foot stool seem to have been drawn from the Texas sunset.
We love our birds in Texas, so how appropriate that BeeThings' adorable, limited-edition goldfinches print and RachelleD's Penelope necklace be included....not to mention RozArt's colorful peacock print, reproduced from an original work of her own. It reminds me of the feisty peacock that once chased me at the San Antonio Zoo!
It does get cold in parts of the state and WeChooseJoy's shop has the coziest looking hats to keep little Texans' heads warm.
I was born in San Antonio, lived most of my life in and around Houston and studied finance at the University of Texas (Hook 'Em!). Austin is where I've wanted to be ever since, and I'm proud to now call it home. I'm so pleased that my red coral hoops are sharing space with a couple of talented designers from this oh-so-cool city. VieModerne's feather fascinator is so feminine and glamorous and I love the simplicity of carolinableu's sweet Love is a Battlefield necklace.
Finally, what tale of Texas would be complete without cowboys and Indians? You've just gotta' have it. DustyLorraine's antique Hubley cap gun and AlphabetMomma's 1936 book, Story of Indians by Bernadine Freeman Bailey are a perfect depiction of the wild west.
Don't forget to stop by and give a big Texas welcome to Megan's new shop Salvaged Space (even if you're not from Texas, y'all). She has a great collection to satisfy anyone's quest for nostalgia, right down to a pair of vintage desert rose plates from the Franciscan Earthenware company. Ahhh...childhood memories. This just so happens to be the same pattern my grandparents once owned.
Thanks again, Megan, for spreading the Texas Love!
