Shopping Round Top, TX

I'm back from two back to back trips and trying to get all of them documented and shared, so today it's Round Top, TX shopping day!  As I mentioned, this group of 11 girls stayed at the Rancho Pillow which is about 10 minutes out of town from Warrenton and Round Top, the antiques market community that is so huge this time of year.  It's a wonderful event to experience, even if it is overwhelming … [Read more...]
