Round Top hangover

Well another Round Top Antiques show has come and gone!  It was fun and productive and yes exhausting!  I am trying to get myself together to tackle computer work and catching up! and laundry! But I had to drop and show you a few things…first, a photo from a fun Country Living dinner that design besties Becki Griffin and Jenny Johnston and I went to last week.  So fun! I didn’t get great photos of the styling but it was so cute and I bet Becki will do a fun post on it in the weeks to come!  She always gets better photos because well she is a photographer and all;;

Also speaking of Country Living, the November issues is ON STANDS and in mailboxes and it features the Old Glory house I told you about..the project I was working on over the summer and blogged about here! This is my first time to have my work in this publication so I am excited! AND Becki yes OUR BECKI of Curious Details styled it for Country Living…so proud of her..she rocked it! of course!

Sorry for the cheesy grainy picture and goofy frin…hubs took this with his ancient cell phone (laying on the sofa) when I ran into the house to show him!! SO proud of this project and adore the homeowners and everything about what we did so much! Holly Kuhn gave us a lot of creative freedom and trusted me on this project and also gave me a great canvas to work with and all of her antiques at my disposal..dream job!

So aside from all of this, I was also searching for antiques and rugs the past few weeks for clients in Louisiana and Oklahoma and Dallas!  I found a great rug for my Dallas client and also THE most amazing table for my new Louisiana house I am working on…Just look at this…8 feet of French cherry BEAUTY!  19th century yall!  SEATS TEN!

It has a leg in the middle and I love the apron on the ends, it will look so amazing in my client’s new home with monogrammed parsons chairs all around!

Oh and last but certainly not least…Melaine from the fab blog MY SWEET SAVANNAH was in town for the show with her gorgeous friend Tonya!  It was so fun to finally meet Melaine.  Paige and Smoot Hull of the Vintage Round Top hosted us at their place for a little mini blogger get fun! I can’t wait to see Melaine’s blog post about her visit to Texas.  She is just as gorgeous in person and so sweet…Loved meeting you Melaine!

That’s it for now..sorry I didn’t get more beauty shots of cool stuff in tents but my iphone kept getting clogged up with photos (I haven’t found my cord to download and erase since moving)…

Have a great week y’all!  I will be back soon to show you more from the Old Glory house that Country Living did not show…so many nooks and crannies in that house that need blog time!

  1. That table!!! What a find! That is so great about Country Living mag. Well deserved, of course! We will be in Houston on Oct 19, but sadly, just a lay over for a few hours between flights to Florida. One of these days, we will meet xoxo

  2. So awesome about the magazine!!! Looks like a great time.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS on the magazine feature! How awesome is that?! And that table….LOOOOVE it. Need to show that to my husband so that he can recreate it for me. I have been wanting something like that to replace the double pedestal one in the dining room, and the legs on that table look very similar to the antique English pub table we have in our family room.
    Go rest (and then do the dreaded laundry.)
