Round Top weekend! Two weekends a year, I take a roadie with a few friends to Round Top, Texas. Home of funnel cakes, hand-spun potatoes chips, and miles upon miles of junk heaven.
Some cheap junk. Some expensive junk (you might call them antiques). But it is heaven on earth and so much fun!
This year is a little different.
One: I will be there for 3 days!
Two: I have saved my pennies for months!
Three: We are bringing our daughters with us!
Four: I’ll be sleeping in a camper and I haven’t camped since my parents took 4 kids and a 2- person tent to the state park in West Texas and made me pee outside. Gasp! I know….
Here are some of things I came home with last year:
This ladder was at the back of little tent. I spied her and marched in flip flops through 10 feet of mud. The owner did not want to sell it. She wanted to make picture frames out of it. But cash talks…and $30 later, the ladder was mine.
And then I had severe buyers remorse when I got home and my husband shook his head at the sight of this raggedy old ladder.
He quickly changed his tune when this 7 foot, perfectly worn, chipped blue and green ladder found her home in our bathroom.
And this little baby…my heart skipped a beat when I saw her laying on the ground. My bathroom needed a lot of attention and was crying for a make-over but I didn’t quite have a plan.
When I found this:
…it set the stage for my poor, neglected bathroom! A before and after of my bathroom will be up soon.
$20 and I love the mismatched knobs especially this rusty blue:
And this little stool was a last minute find. It was $10 and the perfect size for my vanity. I recovered it with the leopard print but the jury is still out…it needs to be a bit more…funky, right?
And then my final purchase…the greatest, never will I ever find this deal again…3 chairs for $60. She wanted $75, I offered $60 and she said SOLD! The chairs are amazing…distressed the way I like it and recovered with a super soft creamy chenille. And I only needed 3 chairs to mix in with two parson chairs in my kitchen…they were meant to be mine!
So come Friday at 11am, these little cuties are getting out of school early:
and we are making our way to Round Top! The little red head is mine…and she is ready for a new bedroom so we are looking for some really fun, unique things to go along with the beast I found a few weeks ago.
And after the girlies are asleep, us moms might enjoy a “Hop, Skip & Go Naked” by the fire after a long day of shopping.
Here is the recipe if you care to try one for yourself. I promise, you’ll be glad you did!
2/3 c. cold beer
2/3 c. frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1/4 c. vodka
straws or stirrers
Fill blender halfway with ice. Pour in beer, lemonade, and vodka. Blend and serve!
I’ll fill you in next week with all the details!!
P.S. The paint color in my bathroom is Restoration Hardware Silver Sage. The most amazing paint color on earth!
Have a wonderful weekend!
