On The Crush List because…
They’re incredible show-offs.
This wonderfully talented couple sets up a fabulous display at Round Top every single show. They’re also well loved by the Texas decoristas who visit their full time store down in Beaumont. This Spring Show they’ve moved to their forever Round Top home at the Rendezvous Field, which happens to be directly across the highway from the about-to-be-opened new event and everything else spot, The Compound. Since that’s right next to Marburger, Urban Habitat is now completely in with the in crowd.
The new space is in a little house that very well might be an exact replica of Elvis’ birthplace in Tupelo. We made the pilgrimage to Tupelo long ago and of course what I remember most is the gift shop. There was a box full of envelopes printed with the phrase “A piece of Elvis’ costume for you!” and inside each one was a little scrap of polyester double knit fabric in some crazy print, cut with pinking shears. We bought every single envelope and for years they were our go to housewarming/birthday/stockings stuffer gifts.
It’s taken me this long to put Urban Habitat on List because I just haven’t had the photos to do them justice. But this new space is a charmer and tons of gorgeous shots practically jumped into my camera. Have fun with them.
