Earlier this month, we traveled to East Texas to the beautiful country home of Judy and Bill Hill. (J. Hill Designs) They open their home twice a year for a "Home Show/Sale". Everything, (and I mean Everything!) has a price tag! We were there early to save our place in line, which made us excited in anticipation!
Look how many people were already in line a half hour before the doors were open!
On the front porch, I was already in love with this unique column base. It was about 3' wide and held Judy's potted plant nicely. I still can't believe I didn't take it home!!
A garden trellis in her dining room?! Only fabulous Judy can pull this off! Check out the iron chandelier stacked with terra cotta pots on the table!
This is one of the table settings. How creative. Using old newspapers as place-mats is a great idea!
The coffee table in the living room is a Judy original. The base was made from three matching old concrete pieces . . . a very inspiring idea.
What a breakfast table!!! Love it! Check out the dust pans used as "place-mats"!
In the laundry room this etched mirror and shelf of old bottles caught my eye.
Loved this collection of cream items . . . old spools of ribbon, candles, a vintage lamp, a vintage art print, all wonderful eye candy!
In the guest bedroom, we found this wonderful garden table with old glass vases that sparkled in the filtered sunlight from the beautiful window sheers.
In the master bathroom, this basket spilled out clean towels and soaps. Check out the large old barley dry goods box behind the towels. It went home with us!!!
In the master bedroom this old factory shelf was beautifully stocked with antiques like spools of thread, ironstone, and shoe molds. Judy outdid herself this show with her attention to detail.
Even the back porch was decorated perfectly.
There is nothing like an old bucket full of hand picked east Texas wildflowers to put a smile on my face!
Overall, Judy's house sale made for a wonderful day and we left feeling refreshed and inspired. The images are still replaying in our minds . . .
