A little couture for your cottage.

Round Top, Texas could be one of my favorite places in the state.

Wait, let me be more specific.

Twice a year, when they're hosting their bi-annual Antique Show, Round Top, Texas is one of my favorite places in the state. Not only are their fantastic things to be found and dealin' to be done, but there is kettle corn, ice cold lemonade, and come about 4 o'clock, frosty Shiner Bock. There are acres and acres of antique booths spread across cow pastures begging to be peeked in, browsed through, and checked out.

Everything I've ever found during my weekends with friends in Round Top has a story because I'm with some of my very favorite people when I'm there.

This year, another one of my very favorite people is going to make Round Top even better than ever. My sister-in-law, Kelley, will have a booth in Marburger which is right down the road from Round Top and if you're planning on going, you've gotta check it out. Actually, if you're not planning on going, drop everything and get your tail down there!

Kelley and her friend Robyn have amazing taste and have found some fabulous pieces. You can get more information from their blog, Cottage Couture Designs.

When you get home, drop back by and tell me what you found, and while you're there, would you mind picking me up an extra bag of kettle corn?

OK, I went. I met Kelley and Robin and they were precious. I dropped your name and they were so excited, until they asked how I knew you. "Oh I don't know her. I read it on her blog." pause "So, you're like, a stalker?" they asked aking a few steps back. LOL!

No seriously, they were very sweet and it was fun to meet them. I did get you some kettle corn, but it's a three and a half hour drive home. So it's gone. You understand.

What a fantasy of mine. I have ALWAYS wanted to envious. Especially now that I know about the kettle corn!
