Hi y'all! Here we are at the Garden Market Company and Cafe in
Schulenberg, Texas. This is on our way from Victoria to Round Top
and we left the house just in time to stop for lunch and shop just a
little bit before we head up to Marburger Farm.
The shop has beautiful plants and accessories for the home too.
I bought this pair of bookends for David's office. He loves Bulldogs!
Here we are inside the cafe. If you are anywhere in the vicinity and
want to go to a charming spot for lunch or dinner, this is the spot!
The food is delicious too.
They are also building one up in Round Top. If you want to read more about
them and see a menu go here.
As we were leaving, 25 Porsches came rolling through. David was happy to
see this as he has been looking very closely at this car and we may just be
driving one up for the next show. Of course, we won't be able to bring
home much, but maybe that is part of David's plan ;-)
Okay ~ we are on the road again. The entire drive up to Round Top is
so scenic and there are plenty of Longhorn photo ops.
What can I say, I love them!
Here we are at last. We are on a serious mission. Last spring I
saw a globe bar that I thought would be perfect for David's office.
He didn't want to come up and look at it and I did not want to
buy it without him seeing it (he is very picky) so we went
This year we found one. Hooray. I am not going to show you
pics until he gets it all set up in his office. His office is what I would
describe as "Preppy Man Cave", or "Ralph Lauren Meets the
Now that our mission has been completed, I am free to roam around and
shop on my own.
I adore this little firebox and mantel. So precious. I can
envision it in my potting shed, but turned it down because
it's way to pricey to put in a shed :-(
Y'all won't believe this, but I didn't buy a thing! I did however buy
two things last week, so I am fine with it.
For those of you who have never been to Round Top, I will tell you
that it is our mecca. Wonderful fine antiques, rusty old junk, great
displays, and charm galore. The crowds are huge, and the traffic
the slowest you've ever seen. But I tell you what, I wouldn't miss
it for anything! Hope you enjoyed this little trip with me.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
