It's that time again...and it's my favorite time of year! Fall is finally in the air and it immediately makes me think of Roundtop, Texas and the infamous Roundtop Antique Week and Marburger Farm Antique Show. I get giddy just thinking about what I will find.
If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE antiques and just about anything with a little age to it...from buckets to bookcases and stoneware to Staffordshire, I LOVE this stuff! And if it has a chip on it..all the better because someone loved it and used it.
So this time of year makes me giddy and it's not just the wonderful cool front that always seems to blow in just in time for antique week but it's the magic and wonder of what I will find that I just cant live without. Maybe it's another headvase to add to my collection or maybe it's an old piece of damask to use on my Grandmother's chair. Or maybe if I am really lucky I will find an original oil painting of a beautiful floral(I have an addiction to those). Everyday is an adventure and an exciting experience as I find fabulous treasures and meet the very interesting people who collect such wonderful things all across the country and beyond.
Got plans at the end of the month? Check out Roundtop, Texas.
OH!! Dont forget the PIE!! You have to visit Royer's Cafe while in Roundtop! It's one of those things that you simply have to do!!! The BEST pie in the country hands down! And the steak is out of this world! My all-time favorite dish is Micah's pasta...delish and I always have a slice of the buttermilk pie...the best I have ever had! And for those of you who were fans of my restaurant, The French Pear, and loved our buttermilk pie...this is the same one as I used Bud's recipe! So get on over to Royer's and get yourself a piece of pie!!
Enjoy your Tuesday!
