As my grandmother Ruth told me, Texas is a great place to live because it has such a big sky.
A hare-raising (sorry, had to!) storm came through Round Top one day during the Spring Show, and I was lucky enough to be able to watch it from the safety and comfort of the N°3 front porch. What a view.
These last three photos all captured the post-storm rainbow. Look carefully!
There’s so much coming at me during the show that I can start to shut down and go a little numb. I don’t fight the overload fatigue; I just stay in cruise control and wait for something fresh and surprising to jump out at me, like these phenomenal custom mirrors from the Mirror-tique guys in the Arbor Field tents.
Some are distressed and some are imprinted with patterns of lace, landscapes, water droplets or abstract art. Some go modern, some are granny cool. All of them are smoky and subtle and any one of them would be perfect on your dining room wall.
In this random list of my very favorite things about my very favorite place I’ve tried to capture the area’s special pieces and parts. Some are big deal, some are small gestures, some are legendary and some are just tiny pip and squeak.
