Round Top Round Up - The Good, the Bad, and the Weird!

We had so much fun on our antiquing trip to Texas.  In spite of the miserable heat, we were out in the fields everyday seeing all the vendors had to offer.  
Old clawfoot tub made into a chaise lounge occupied by sweet CeCe (traveling buddy #1) from nyourdreams.   
Tahlula knew how to keep cool.  She parked herself in front of a large fan and let her ears blow in the wind!

Decor at Magnolia Pearl's.  I don't want to insult anyone, but to me, these women look like pirate wenches.  

"I think I will just try out this display here"
This was at the top of the list of the most beautiful things I saw.  I wanted it, but it was way over what was left of my budget by the time I saw it on the last night.  sigh.....

My dear friend and traveling buddy #2 Suzanne
Buttons anyone?

We had a wonderful, fun time in and around Round Top and I am really looking forward to going back again.  If you have always wanted to go, don't wait, GO!  It's totally worth it.   I will share some of my purchases in my next post.    Thanks for visiting and join me at the party at Seasonal Sundays


  1. You are so making me want to go to this.. Must put it on my bucket list.. Love all the things you showed.. I do agree on the lace garments looking a wee bit "ill reputish".. xo marlis

  2. Dianne....Droooooooooooooooling uncontroably now!!!To say I'm jealous is an understatement. What an amazing amount of fab stuff. We never have anything like that here in NZ. If they ever put on anything remotely like that (and it's very rare)the prices are so high. It makes me want to head back to the UK where the selection of antique markets is still fantastic.

    Anyway, enough moaning. Your trip looked like so much fun. I agree with your comment about the exquisite embroidered cloth. Before your comment about it I saw it and immediately went into an "Ooooh Ooooh" moment. It is sensational. Shame you didn't have enough money left to get it. However I am a great believer in if it's mesnt to be yours then it will be.

    I loved the hussie's in the lacey dresses. I thought they looked very naughty, especially with their cowboy boots on. lol.

    Anyway my friend, great post, I can't wait to see your purchases.

  7. I would give my eye teeth for that chandelier!!!!!! How beautiful that would be in my dressing room...or even in a guest bedroom or bath. Egads! Gorgeous!!! Glad you guys had a good time!

  8. So much fun... I am seeing some things in your pictures that I don't remember seeing in person! Some things I might have bought! It is almost nice to leave behind something you wanted to buy ... makes you want to return and do it all over again. Love your pictures. Am reliving the trip through your posts...the best parts of the trip! By the way...my expensive Nikon camera is broken...keeps reading Errr.... I am saying Grrrr...Also, I have your face. I have put it with the dishes that are yours.
