Lovely Blog friend ladies who should have been at Round Top

I was reminded of friends I have made through blogging as I shopped Round Top, TX Antique week.
I have added a link below each so you too can go and visit them and take a look around their place too.

I'll let you try and guess first... If the first picture doesn't have you knowing this lady, the last one should.  You see cigar boxes and balls of twine, not "MJ".

Not Mamie Jane... go here to see her amazing imagination put into action.
Mamie Jane's

Because of this blogger I went to Round Top with a dough bowl on my list to find.  They were either too expensive or not the right size.  But "K" has a savvy style that makes the ordinary extraordinary.

I have to admit I am jealous. I added the below picture with the above because these two ladies have actually met in person, the flesh, shook hands, hugged.  Not fair.
One of them takes any painted piece of iron, wood.. you name it and changes the color almost with every  season change.  This chair reminded me that "D" would make it look fabulous.  The chair did come home with me.  I see Christmas presents stacked on her (the chair) not "D".

They both have incredible talent and have used the below amazing Annie Sloane paint on wonderful projects.  Yes, a whole booth full of paint!  I finally got to purchase some and have the newest attachment for the can.  Just on the market.  I'll show you with my final haul post.  I got a new color too, CoCo.

Two of the first blogs I ever followed...you go and follow them too, you won't be disappointed that you did.   Kim at Savvy Southern Style and Debbie at Debbidoos blogging and blabbing.

I can't walk by a pig of any kind now without thinking about "L".  She would have grabbed these little cement ones.
If you are a pig collector or want great recipes... Here you'll find Lynn at Happier than a Pig in Mud.

This next lovely lady mentioned how hard it is to find purple transferware.  She was at Brimfield recently and she was right.  I only saw about three pieces at Round Top.  We also only shopped about 1 / 10 of the fields.

Have you been to her home.  Such gorgeous design and comfort.

Amy at Maison Decor - go take a long look at her website and Brimfield trip !  Call me next time Amy, I will try and meet you there.

And in the end, I mean make no butts about it, gosh this blogger would have come up with a much clever title for the below picture.  Come on "M" - leave your creative comment below for all to see.  You know you want to.

She brings a smile to my face with every post and what an amazing wood crafting, cutting, designing woman.  She creates like crazy while keeping up with her brood of butt munchers.  Yep, that is what she calls them.  I haven't figured that one out yet. Also, she always gives you a warning not to look at admire her hubbies behind either.

For the best of her best go here Mandi at Tidbits of the Tremaynes - her header will drop you pants.

and for a real belly laugh follow them on a road trip here...

I know crazy but there will be part four to Round Top  - HGTV filming at Junk Gypsey.  We had to sign disclosures. Ya'll come back now, ya here.  But leave comments below on what you think of the my friends above and if you know any of them.  Leave a comment on their site too, we all love that you know.  


  1. That is awesome Lori! What a great looking place filled with treasures. And yes, I do love that red chair. Glad it came home with you. Thanks for thinking of me amongst these uberly talented and creative ladies.

  2. Oh, aren't you sweet. I am going to have to visit the last one you mentioned. Love those demijohns!

  3. Hi Lori,
    You seem to have me figured out :) Yes...the cigar boxes, cabinet cards and spools of thread had my name written all over them!!
    I loved this post. I had guessed correctly on a few of them....it was fun figuring it out!

  4. Looks like you had so much fun Lori (but you always do)! Cute little piggies and I love your new chair, can't wait to see what you do with it:@)

  5. Hi Lori! What a great time. Isn't it funny how our blogging buddies jump to mind when we see something they'd love? I never noticed how many pigs were out there until I met Lynn. I was recently at World Market and saw some really beautiful napkins; they reminded me of someone.... :o)

  6. You are too sweet and funny! Oh that dough bowl!!!! I want that!!!!

  7. OMH girl you are hilarious! The bums reminded you of me?? HAHAHA! I love it.

    And thanks for all the sweet stuff you said. . . totally undeserving, but very SWEET. Love your guts.


Please leave a comment and thanks!
