round top antique fair!


Susan Rose and I had the extreme good fortune to head to Round Top, Texas this year for their annual antique fair, with the lovely Mary Emmerling showing us the way!  It was like a dream come true!  Rows and rows and rows of tents spread out over acres under that big, blue Texas sky.  Thank goodness we had Mary (a Round Top veteran) to show us the way or we might have been completely overwhelmed!  We came back to Phoenix with a whole truck full of amazing treasures for the shop and for some lucky design clients!  Stay tuned for what we will have in the store!


My heart just about jumped out of my chest when I saw this lovely sight...


Oh, linen.  I do love you so :)


We were keeping our eye out for some amazing, one of a kind pieces for some design clients...


Your heart would skip a beat seeing all the amazing chandeliers lining tent after tent...


And it is all so charming with chandeliers even hanging in the trees...


Trying to feed this beautiful, wild horse in a nearby field...  


I may have almost been bit :)  Luckily, he just got my bag, but it was a close one! 
They may be lovely, but be wary of wild horses!


Susan and Mary Emmerling...


Our favorite booth...

 She was from Michigan and simply walked down the beach collecting driftwood to come here and build this beautiful structure.  We were simply charmed by her whole set-up...

And, Round Top is certainly a fun place to people watch!  Just one of the many characters we met...


Just a sampling of some things "not coming to the Willows"...


The cars were lined up for miles...


What a fun week we had!  Thanks girls for the great time!

summer travels {london}


While in Spain, Kim and her husband also spent a weekend in London, enjoying all the sights and tradition that wonderful city has to offer!


On her bucket list, was seeing Phantom of the Opera in London, so Kim was able to check that one off this summer!


A little peek at Westminster Abbey...


Traditional fish and chips and a lager...


As Kim said, "You haven't experienced London without going to Harrods!"


Again, thank you Kim for sharing your travels with us!
Tell us, did you go anywhere fun this summer? Plans for the Fall?
Where should we plan our next trip?

summer travels {spain}


Our lovely Kim from the Willows went on an amazing trip to Spain this summer with her husband.  Her pictures from Barcelona and Madrid have us all more than a little jealous :)  She said the architecture was simply stunning everywhere you turned.  The Barcelona Cathedral in particular, she told us, was positively breathtaking...


Kim told us that the Retiro Park is her very favorite park in the entire world.  As you walk through the park you are not only surrounded by beauty and history, you also hear live music throughout the park!  It sounds like a dream.  When are the rest of us planning a trip?


And, of course, no trip is complete without enjoying the culinary delights of the region...
Bread, tapas, sangria and jamon!


And, as Kim said, "The perfect ending to the most amazing trip... an Espresso Martini simply done right!"


Thanks for sharing your trip with us, Kim!
