All week our blog will highlight show sites, events, shopping ideas and answer frequently asked questions "FAQs" surrounding the twice-annual Round Top-Warrenton AntiqueWeekend. This event lasts for three weekends and the weekdays in between in the spring and fall. More details can be found at AntiqueWeekend.com
Cool idea.......as seen at the Junk Gypsy World Headquarters. When you are shopping at AntiqueWeekend, or scouring the garage sales and antique shows in your area don't pass up a pretty patterned plate because of a chip. And don't toss out a favorite at home because it got broken. Do what the Junk Gypsies have done and use those pretty plates and platters as garden edging! Add cottage style to a corner of your yard with this clever idea!
