Round Top Texas!

You are cordially invited to join us on our trip to Round Top Texas.

I feel as though this post should be of proper sorts {minus good grammar}. Although we were walking where cows once trotted {being proper remember}, I felt as though I were shopping in another country. The talent shown here was unbelievable!

I found myself devouring the beauty under the canvas tents, all the while ,forgoing the thought of being in Texas and allowing my senses to take me as far as my imagination could carry me.

While being caught up in the beauty you had to remind yourself just what century you were in. You quickly forget about the plastic that held your breakfast and longed to dine on china instead.

Even with as much as a quick glance I would register each piece in my mind and found the perfect place for it in my home. Do you ever do that?

I recorded every image deep within my soul in hopes to recreate this masterpiece in my own personal space.

Please note that while referring to this trip as Round Top, in all accuracy, it is none other than Warrenton, Texas that you see here. The towns are so close and during this show one tent spills into the next. Zapp Hall is a must see if you plan to journey here in the future.

The prices were a bit on the higher end than what I had originally anticipated but it didn't deter me from enjoying the beauty!

Simple items seemed to transform into works of art here.

Simplicity at it's finest...

Elegance and grace was not all that Round Top and Warrenton had to offer. It did get down and dirty. Some of it was just a "hot mess" but that's another post. Remind me to tell y'all about the goat,fever blister,riding arrangements,porta potties... And Adrienne...if you're still out there, Im sorry I missed you. We will have to catch up soon.

  21. Susie, thanks for taking us on our trip with you.

    Loving those buttons and those vintage linens. I am not a big fan of decorating with crystal and all the fancy stuff, but I do understand what you meant when you said you pictured it all in your house somewhere. It's fun to dream, isn't it?
    Well now, porta potties??? I am sure there is a funny story attached to that.
    Have a blessed day dear friend.
