I am having an absolute blast over there - and am soooooo excited for their launch in May!!! I absolutely can't wait!!

Friday's Favorites # 8 . . . ( April 20th - 2012 )
As I said before . . . the Texas Shows were amazing!! From sun to sun down we walked the fields, tents and barns looking for treasures!! As my very first evening came to a close in Round Top - Texas . . . I pulled into this lovely shop just as the sun was beginning to set.
It looked and felt like Texas to me . . . an old rustic building with a big front porch - like something you would see in an old Western movie.
Yet here it was . . . softened up with a bit of European charm and refined touches . . . filled to the brim with old-world textiles . . . linen clothing . . . and beautiful furniture!!
As I touched the textiles and soaked in the last bit of warmth on my face - I was thinking to myself . . . this truly is the most perfect way to end a most perfect day in Texas . . .
. . . lights twinkling on the porch, the sun setting on the horizon . . . and surrounded with beautiful antiques and vintage goods . . . yes - I do think I am falling for Texas!!
It was such a delight to meet Anna Bugardi - the owner of all this goodness!! She was very kind . . . and made me feel at home at the end of a very long day. Thank you again Anna - I will most definitely be back to see you again!!
Hope you will join me again next week on Second Shout Out . . . for the rest of my Texas round-up!!:)
