Snow ( Sleet ) Days

55' tree in downtown Fort Worth, Texas... 

We all wish for a Snow day , a time to take off and kick back... enjoy old movies, hot chocolate and getting caught up on the things we choose to ignore all through the year. . . . 

Really,  there is only so much you can do when a sleet, freezing rain topped off with little icy snow crystals, covers your land.  Covers the driveway, keeps the gate from opening, completely freezing shut the side gate, keep even UPS from delivering...

Our Buddy-  He wouldnt go in the garage, so we did the next best- three blankets
and he stayed nice & warm all night !  He loves the weather..

We have enjoyed sleeping late, watching plenty of T.V. and movies, creeping out to feed the birds since the birdfeeder is 2” deep in sleet, cleaning an extraordinary amount... whipping up new recipes, making homemade chili, covering Buddy up with blankets ( yes, on the front porch... ) wrapping more Christmas gifts, and checking on friends & family .

A fountain coke,  breakfast at our beloved Chik Fila,  a bacon biscuit from Whataburger, Mexican food at our local favorite haunt , a chai tea latte at Starbucks 
or even picking up the mail.... even making it out to the box would be nice : )

This was such fun, and amazing to eat ! 

So, this morning we decided to create some fun and have a gourmet brunch
of our own. I had recently gotten some french sourdough bread and a new little indoor
grill.  Add some freshly cooked bacon ( can you smell it ? )  cheddar, havarti , fresh
tomatoes, butter ( yes, real butter ).  Grill for about three minutes  , add fresh coffee
serve it on your best china and enjoy. 

 We dreamed for a minute we had made it to Corner Bakery...
 our favorite one in downtown Fort Worth.. That would be fun then
we could see the HUGE tree that is all decked out for Christmas.. See Above- 
Oh, well . . . Soon.

Snow Birds.. enjoying a treat of seeds

We savored a great grilled sandwhich ( dubbed Grillnini per Aubrie ) and are trying
to enjoy being cooped up for the third day..

Enjoy your Sunday.  We are, even though we would both love a coke : )

Change is Good

We all need change. The vast majority of us dread change ( if we are over , say about 42 give or take a couple of years )  While there is something truly exciting about some changes, others make us D-R-A-G our feet.  Are you having
visions of leaving your child for the first time at Mother’s Day out.. or maybe the yearly trip to the dentist ?

I have been through many changes this year- most of them I really didn’t even
think I would have even had in my life, and certainly didn’t welcome, but now I think
 this is one change I am actually  beginning to like the idea of.

My Father always said “ Find a niche and Fill It “.  I have slowly run it through my
mind over and over again ( like  that great CD  ) and began to see a pattern emerging. 
The lack of home decor easily accessible near me and a growing need with most of all
 the Interior Designers in the immediate area made me see the need and begin to  put a 
plan into action. . . 

Wishing to fill that need is what lead me to the idea- I have decided to clear out
my Vintage site- sell out all the product I have and RE-CREATE my entire line
of product. We will keep current home accessories, mix it up with new twist on
Traditional, throw in a little fresh modern and without doubt have a special
place for those unique vintage pieces that give a nod to our past.

There may even be a time to have those old fashioned “Barn” or “Tag” sales
a couple of times a year - that would actually be FUN I think.

Here is a little preview of a couple of items we are considering for the new
line -  Tell us what you think- give us some ideas of how you like to decorate
your home.   What do you have trouble finding for your home ? We would
love your imput .

Beautiful, elegant & a Bestseller. . . 
 I personally want this-  love the color !
Classic, & holiday worthy. . . . . 
Can you just see this on a holiday table set with your best dishes ?
Transitional but 
. . polished around the edges and sexy for certain.

Just like some Custom ART from a local friend of mine.. I think she is uber talented
and you all would love her work... I may just ask her to join in the fun soon...

Gorgeous- what can we say ?
               This just needs some floating orchids, roses or candy to make it perfect.

Turquoise floral love . . .

We will also be changing up the Blog-  It will be sporting a completely new look
& of course a name change !   Will give details soon.

Till next time-

Inspirations at RoundTop

A favorite display at Leftovers near RoundTop Antiques Faire in Brenham, Texas

I know, I know.. I’m a little s-l-o-w in getting back to you , We have had company- Large and Small- the smaller of which made for some crazy sleeping.. I felt much like the Jack-In-the-Box Nana for several nights  : )
We have been enjoying the company of family,  deer in the yard every day,  & cooling days as of late. Every sign is pointing straight to my favorite season. 

Pumpkin Spice Latte at our friendly coffee house lately and of course- RoundTop Antiques Faire ( that just officially ended recently ) were the real  signals around this house that Fall had indeed decided to make it’s appearance. 

We braved several hours of travel, found a little hotel that allowed us to take little furry friends along and even fought the rain a little. Overall it was a nice break from routine. Like a energy bar of creativity for the brain....

Beautiful old bottles, large & small caught our eye..
A stop during the rain at Leftovers provided some beautiful displays to savor..
Yes, after hours of walking a much needed soak with Lavender Epsom did the trick !
Exceptional Corbels. . .  Beautiful, right ?
Here is a little sample of the fun. Although we were hoping for some exciting new things and were a little disappointed in that, there were some beautiful displays and creative people everywhere !

Very Fun Vintage "No glair" glasses in display case.
A colorful display at the New Junk Gypsy..
Well.... we just need to Top it off !
A very clever use of floral plates at the New Junk Gypsy

We gained some reflective time- made a decision to change our website
to New Home Decor/ Accessories, and reserve a section dedicated entirely
to the Vintage Decor that we love so much.  Still contemplating a new name
for the Store and all the little details but it's in the works for now.

Till next time- Enjoy this lovely season. Back soon with new plans &
ideas for a new name.

Vintage Frye Boots


I’m feeling exhilirated !   The desperate hot ( it’s never going to cool off has feeling) has finally come to a semi-halt here in the DFW metroplex with the cooling breezes and rain that came in late yesterday afternoon.. Temps have dropped and hearts are skipping a beat... . Fall....Fall...Fall..

I promised myself I would sit on the porch this am- SAVOR the moments that
remind me of my favorite season- you guessed it,  yes Ma’am - FALL..
At this moment I am still in my jammies, sipping a warm vanilla caramel coffee
and listening to he rain as it warms my heart.

Is anyone else excited ?  I thought so. . . .  And, a trip to Roundtop soon will just fill my heart to the brim !  Yeepie.. a longing for new inspiration has been tugging at me. So I dove right in, made a reservation and asked Aubrie to join me & Anyone who has gone knows I didn’t have to even twist her hair. .  little alone her arm.

With the return of pumpkins at local specialty stores this week in Fort Worth and spiced latte at coffee shops across America, I think we can all relax and get our boots out now !!    Happy Fall.. 

I promise to snap some wonderful moments at Roundtop Antiques Faire and
SHARE soon.

Till next time-
