The Rendezvous at Round Top Bound

I am taking some time away from my preparations to give my two cents on visiting Round Top, Texas during Antique Week.  I lived in Houston for 3 years and never made my way out to the fields of treasures. When we moved to Europe and I started collecting my treasures my dream was to one day sell my treasures in those fields. I started researching the different venues while living in France and I found The Rendezvous.  I was immediately drawn to the field because of the French name and the feel of the pictures online.

Our move back to Texas and the progress of my container proved more challenging than I had first thought. Thankfully I was able to work with the owners of the field and I made my first trip to Round Top as a vendor, just not with a full container of treasures, but I still learned so much.

What I found at the Rendezvous was just what I had hoped for. The location is amazing, on the south end of Round Top, across from The Compound and just down from Marburger Farms. The farm house on the Rendezvous is a precious piece of history. The hammock in the trees out front, the picnic table and the beautiful lights surrounded by vintage and antique treasures is a little piece of heaven for me. The other vendors were so sweet to me at my very first show and my first time at Round Top. This year there are going to be so many exciting things happening.  I will be set up from March 24 through March 30.

Monday, March 28 there is an event planned with @wherewomencreate!  Come meet these brilliant creators and many more! @sandraevertson @kinassauer Brandi Harper with @spellboundcollections Gina Galvin with @peacockparkdesign Robin Brown from @magnoliapearl Jill Garber from @lenouveaurose Holly Kuhn with @oldgloryantiques Kaari Meng from @frenchgeneral Jen O’Conner with @jensearthangels, Amie & Jolie Sikes (a.k.a. @thejunkgypsies ) Tara Royer Steele (a.k.a. @thepiequeen ) Cheryl Evans Lehane @cherry_letane Celeste Shaw @celestershaw Anne Freund with @thegildedgypsies Jo Packham @jo_packham AND MORE!

To avoid traffic I was up and at the field early. The sunrise in the Texas country side is so gorgeous.

The conservatory is a beautiful landmark in Round Top. Did you it is also for sale?IMG_1292

In the evenings this was our view, the porch swing and the hammock are both very comfortable, I checked them both out.

I Love Old Books

I love to collect old books and I know that I am not alone. Today I found a stash of amazing old books that I got to bring home. I bought them as a lot so I didn’t really look through them until I got home. As I sorted through the boxes I fell more and more in love with the character in these old books. Some of these books date back to the late 1800’s, some have been read often, some don’t look like they have ever been cracked open. Some of the stories are classics and some of them have been left behind over time. I have so many books around our house and I have sent so many books off to new homes. It is interesting to watch people buy books, some buy the books for the content. Other people want a complimentary stack of books for display. I love this collection of books because there are so many options and a great mix of content and beauty.
