Round Top, Texas!!!

Round Top is always a good time!  We had so much fun shopping the fields of Texas and finding some really cool pieces to bring back to Down Home!  Part of the fun of Texas is driving around the small towns  ~ I love all the scenery, especially the old buildings - so charming!

 And of course, I love the long horn steer!!! 

And, the Blue Bonnets are amazing!!!  So pretty this time of year!!!

But, let's get to the most exciting part - the shopping!!! After all, that is what we go to Texas to do!!!  Besides getting some amazing finds, I also love all the dealers who bring fabulous pieces and create inspiring displays!  Many have become friends of ours and we enjoy the social aspects of Round Top as well - catching up with people we haven't seen for a few months!  But, again back to the shopping...I found a couple of great harvest tables, as well as several smaller farmhouse tables.   And, of course, a great selection of cupboards!  And a couple of early pieces that I can't wait to get into my "Little House on The Prairie"  room at Down Home!  We found all sorts of interesting smalls; some hooked rugs; salt glaze pottery; great wire totes and carriers and baskets; stools and benches; several signs, lots of fun galvanized metal pieces, some great industrial pieces, folk art, and so much more!

 In Warrenton!
At Marburger!

 After days and days of shopping, the container was filled and ready to head to California!  

We're back in California and the container came yesterday! It's unloaded, but we have some work to do!  Can't wait to get these treasures into Down Home!!!

 Follow us on Facebook, and we'll let you know when a load is coming in!
See y'all soon!
