Sunday Side Dish

This is such a delicious dish! Why wouldn't it be with 10 strips of bacon, a stick of butter and 4 different cheeses! I used bow tie pasta instead of macaroni pasta. It is what I had in my pantry. I try and avoid the grocery store on the weekend! Absolute chaos!!

Round Top Finds

This is my collection of Hungarian pottery, circa 1890. I purchased this pottery from Singleton Antique Imports in Round Top/Warrenton.

This Italian Gold Leaf mirror is from Marburger.

The mirrors will be hung together, a long with others. The small mirror is not from Round Top. It is from the Funky Onion Gift Shop in Houston, Texas.

This is an old Italian wine jug.

These pillows are made from homespun linen, circa late 1800's-early 1900's, with zippers and feather down inserts added for easy cleaning. My plan is to have the pillow with the blank canvas monogrammed. The seat cushion is a cushion from Pier One that I inserted into this blue striped grain sack. All of this material is machine washable. Thanks for stopping by!

Star Sighting at Marburger!!!!

While we were shopping at Marburger, we saw Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. A camera crew was following them around taping for their reality show, "Tori and Dean". 

Here are some of the items they purchased...

The gentleman in the background is part of their entourage, maybe a producer, part of the camera crew etc. You never know who you will see or what you might find during antique weekend in Round Top. Thanks for stopping by!
