Heading To Roundtop...

You may remember last fall 
 when my sister and I hit the road for Round Top.
It was pure pleasure
This place is unbelieveable!
You could spend the entire two weeks
still not take it all in.
So today I worked on getting a few orders in the mail.
I finished two paintings too!

Tommorow I hope to have my bags packed
and my house cleaned.
Before the crack of dawn on Wednesday
we will be heading to feast our
eyes on views like this...
I know this year we have to think small...
As much as I love seeing how much my car can hold...
 I'm leaving my car and maps at home.
No husband.
No kids.
No puppies.
Just Sonic
and some good Sister time!
You can still enter the giveaway
I will draw and announce the winner
on Monday.
Have a Blessed Easter!
XOXO Susie~


  1. Can I hide in the trunk?? Wish I was going too! Have a great time!

  2. I wish I was your sister...

  3. Six of us are heading out Thursday morning for Round Top! So many shops, so little time!

  4. You girls have FUN!!!
    See ya when ya get back!

  5. Have a wonderful time!!

  6. I am soooo jealous! Have a fabulous time! ;o) ~mary~

  7. Oh, have a fabulous time! I wish I could get down there this time, but looks like Fall for me! Have a great trip!!

  9. ***siiighhh***
    can I come?

  10. Boy, what I wouldn't give to go with you!! What fun! I love to look at old stuff!! (That's why I look in the mirror everyday!! har )

    Have a great time Susie!!

  11. I'm headed out there on Thursday! I CANNOT wait! My only drawback is I'm dragging along a slightly reluctant almost 5 year old. I'm strapping her into her old umbrella stroller and giving her my iPhone loaded up with games that will hopefully placate her. If that doesn't help I'll bribe the heck out of her. ;)

  12. I hope you have a wonderful time with your sister and with all the shopping you can stand.

  13. I don't think I would ever want to leave there. Have a wonderful time and buy something totally awesome to share with all of us that can't go.

  14. Wish I was fitting it in this week,but it hasn't worked out so far...have fun for us all!!!!!

  20. Awesome.. I'm soo 'jello' right now I can't stand it.

    Say, do you recall the cost of the grain linen was per item? I'm in big need of a stack. Maybe I could send you via paypal some funds to pick me up a few.

  56. I just found your blog and I am loving it! Such great ideas! Am I the only one who doesnt know about Round Top? The pics are killing me...I have to go to the place. I gather that it is Texas? Please share....

  57. Oh, Susie.
    I wish i would have seen your blog prior to my second visit to Roundtop.
    I really didn't know exactly which cluster of tents to head for in search of my style.
    My two closest friends and i went to Marburger, (one is a devoted Magnolia Pearl customer).

    We walked over 8 hours in search of inspiration.
    And i did find about 10 booths, that were right up my alley.
    Unfortunately, that was about it.
    If i would have had a little more knowledge, i would have headed straight for Zapp Hall.

    Well, hopefully i will have the chance to do it again.
    I wish someone, (if they haven't already), would create some kind of a directory to the vintage/all- white/eclectic booths, for us newbies.
    Anyway, I hope you had a great time. come back with loads of photos for those of us who didn't make it to Zapp Hall.
    Oh, and all complaining aside, i enjoyed my time with my two best friends. We cried, we laughed, and we even through a tantrum or two. One of the best get-aways i will never forget.
    sincerely, marilyn (a fellow cajun!)
