Home Decor Inspiration from Round Top TX

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Some of you are probably snowed in right now, or at least tucked up with a blanket trying to stay warm! Here in Texas we enjoyed a week of winter-type weather (after several days of 80° it was a shock to wake up to 30°...and now we're back up to high-70's!) I thought it might be a nice change of pace to share my images from our fall shopping excursion to Round Top. If you love watching Fixer Upper, you'll know that this is one of Chip and Joanna's favorite antiques market.

For a tiny town (population is less than 100), they sure know how to do it up big, Texas-style! Round Top hosts 2 fairs annually, spring and fall, and is a great place to find something fabulous and unexpected for your home.
