Round Top...the Dirt...

Yesterday I shared the proper side of Round Top but today girls this post is where the dirt meets the skirt!

Not every booth is lace and linens,dainty and sweet.If you want to find some good deals you gotta get some dirt on your skirt and that's just what we did! This was by far one of my favorite booths. Can you guess why?

You don't have to look very far to find inspiration here girls..

We found it very early in the morning. Can you still see the fog?

Treasure upon treasure

Although I was having a very frizzy hair day and my eyes were still a bit puffy from the long drive I stopped to take a fast photo here.. you know, the fans were wanting a picture with me and all, what's a blogger to do.. Ha!

Can you say jackpot!

Ladders ladies!!!

I may have taken a few of these home with me...sweet!

True Texas style! Love it~

My sister Missy had a few fans herself...Not!

So will we be going back in the spring? You bet your Boots!!! We are bringing a U-haul next time so this wont happen again. I think I over estimated just how much I could fit into the car. In case you are wondering what those are up there....screens!

Car was full,wallets were empty and I had the biggest fever blister known to man kind
so we headed for home. We love you Texas~

  5. WOW, lots of goodies all over. Your creativity was probably in over drive.
    LOL about over estimating how much space you had in the car. We do the same thing on vacations...but the hubby makes sure whatever it is that he makes room for it...even if it has to go on top of the car. It's coming back with us.

  7. What fun.....the pictures of yesterday's booths were great but I would have been spending all my time outside where it looks like the real treasures were found!! I'm sure you have fabulous ideas for everything....look forward to the transformations.

  9. Ok, I want to go next time! It's only about a 1000 miles to your house and then another, what, 400 to Texas? Easy peasy road trip (maybe 20 years ago!) How fun! Love the pics--and those galvanized watering cans. Where do people get all of that stuff?

    Hugs,
    Susan

  27. I better start saving for next year eh? how awesome! that you went and had a good time (duh)

    I would have not been able to photograph much - or else been like a tourist in another country with my camera "oh my! look at that" .......you know...like someone would say at Niagra Falls (I'd much rather go to Texas)

    awesome! thanks for sharing!!

  28. Wow, pay dirt! Such fantastic things!

  29. I have been saying for years that I'd get to Roundtop "one day". Now that I have an "empty nest", I think next spring's show just might be that day! Your posts have me hyperventilating over the possibility!

  30. I absolutely love your blog! I love your taste and find it quite funny that you are an LSU fan while your husband is a hog fan. I myself am a fan of the hogs as Fayetteville is my "home" and am now in OSU cowboy land and my best friend is an LSU fan! You can bet my daughter has her fair share of cheerleading gear! Where in Texas did you find this place? I am in OKC, An hour to Dallas I believe?
