Round Top Antique ShowWeekend Events

Well it is time to go!  Many of you have been there for days already…tell me what you are seeing? Anything NEW (meaning original, creative, different?) what are your favorites??  You can read some of my previous posts about Texas Antiques Week (or simply “Round Top” as it is called locally) here and here.

The Round Top  Chamber and Newspaper also have some good sources including maps and show dates….Remember Marburger and other specific shows like Red Barn, where my friend Melisse sets up each year, don’t start until next week!

This Friday is a fun party at Old Glory Antiques in Burton. If you come and see us I may even show you around the OG Texas house, the one that was recently in Country Living, it is right next to the shop!  It will be a fun night!

Burton has really rolled out the carpet to welcome guests this show….I know you are tired and dusty or antsy and excited coming through Burton but stop at some point, its such a good town and worth it! Old Glory is open until April 4 from 12-7!

Jimmy Don is on HGTV!!!!

Did y’all know I have a brother?  His name is Jimmy Don Holmes.  He lives in Crawford, Texas, home of Bush Ranch and long time home of many many Holmes.  (tongue twister huh) My brother and I are kind of night and day. He likes to shock, I like to please.  He was a wild child, I was (for the most part) well behaved.  And He is country and proud of it. And I am snooty he would say;; (except he would say it in a VERY colorful way;;) lol! (But I’m not snotty I am pretty darn country too as those of y’all who have heard me talk know;)  But no matter how much teasing he has given me over the years,  I am proud of him.  He is a hard worker and is finally getting some recognition on FIXER UPPER.  That’s right, Jimmy Don is on HGTV’s Fixer Upper. I am not even going to link to this show’s site, because Magnolia and this show are a sensation y’all.  Total sensation!

And no I haven’t met Chip and Joanna but he sure has and their success has been a blessing to many in the Waco Community including him and I am so happy for them all!  Waco is a special place that has always gotten overlooked over the years.  Its smack down between Dallas and Austin.  Then you add in some Davidians and you get a bad rep. Our Grandpa Grusendorf grew up in old East Waco and we loved to hear him tell stories of what it was like back then riding his bike all over town delivering newspapers or during the crazy tornado that hit in the early 1950s. I love me some Waco, Texas.

And I have so many clients that LOVE this show and mention it often….When I say “oh yeah my brother has been on that show” and they are starstruck and I love it! They are like “OMG shut up REALLY he is your brother?” It’s hilarious!

Kudos to Chip and Joanna for appreciating local talent and being so good to Waco.  Here are JDH and Joanna making some metal magic.

Jimmy Don has been making metal art for years.  For the Texas Rangers, Texas Monthly, people far and wide both custom and in stores.  His badges and flag holders are really popular.  So now in addition to his own design he is also making signs for the Gaines’  show and online shop like this below…which he can also do custom.

Just look at that JDH sign all hanging up on that shiplap wall!
