Round Top Round-Up

Hello again friends!

How is it possible that it is Monday again already?
I am fully exhausted from my trip down South to see my family and to do a little junkin’ at Antique Weekend in Round Top, Tx.


Once my mother and I arrived, my cousin took us straight over to the grand opening of the Junk Gypsy World Headquarters store.
It was all that I imagined and more….

My cousin's beautiful kids


It was packed to the gills with hour long waits at checkout.  We didn’t wait in line to buy anything because my cousin lives so close and can go back and get us whatever it is we wanted later this week.  Also, the clothing and accessories are online.
It is worth a visit!  People came from all over the world for this and I can promise you that they were not disappointed. 
We also shopped the antique market in some of the worst heat we have ever endured.  The humidity was something else.  We are pretty tough junkers and have shopped in 110 degree heat and rainstorms.  However, the humidity was something like I have never experienced. We lasted about half as long as we usually would but it was still a great time with some fun finds. 
I found my husband this bright orange R to go out by his BBQ pit.  We have a collage of fun random stuff out there.

My mother found this unbelievable hornets’ nest.  It is bigger than my head!  So cool.  And a little gross.

I added another blue Mary to my home.  She isn't antique or even old, but I just love her! Her new home is in this cool old telephone/ponebook holder overlooking my pool.

I also got this thing......

I know what you and my husband are both thinking.....Wtf?

But up close you can see the cool old, bent nails...

This thing is oging to look amazing up on the wall covered in necklaces. I promise.

My nana found these little guys to add to her beautiful home.

My cousin found a new boyfriend....

I found a few more things as well but my most favorite of all are these lime green athletic lockers. 

My mom is going to use them in her craft room for now.  Once I have kids, I will be stealing these.

The rest of the time was spent at my cousin's and my aunt's beautiful homes chatting away while consuming massive amount of fried catfish, BBQ, dessert and wine.
Pretty perfect if you ask me.


  1. I want to go! I love those lockers!

  2. Great finds! I love the blue Mary. Those lockers will be very cool when you have little ones :). I was to see pictures of your cousin's house!
