Road Trip to Brenham, Texas

This past Saturday, David and I were getting tired of sitting around
the house.  We had a serious case of cabin fever.  Our little town has been
stuck in one weather mode ~ cold, windy and rainy.  Too miserable to
do anything outside.  

We decided to take a little one day vacation and head north up the 
road to Round Top and then on to Brenham.  It really didn't seem like
a very good day for a road trip to Brenham because the weather was the
same as here, but sometimes just a change of scenery is uplifting.  So,
David, Bentley and I climbed into the SUV and headed up north.

Once you get to the outskirts of Victoria, you are in the country all
the way up route 77 to Round Top.  No bluebonnets yet, too cold,
but still the rolling ranch land I so enjoy seeing.  It was fairly foggy, but
that seemed to make the landscape all the prettier.

In a few weeks the towns of Warrenton and Round Top will be 
filled with tents and shoppers.  We decided it would be a good time
to take advantage of the lull, and stop at Royer's for some pie!

After collecting our pie for later in the evening, we headed on to 
Brenham.  I will warn you, this next portion of the blog post is photo
heavy, so I will stop chatting so much, and just let you enjoy.

We stopped at Hermann Furniture.  This is a wonderful store that has
been in business since 1876, and continuously run by the same family!
This store sells furniture, and fabulous accessories.  I just wanted everything!

Beautiful tablescapes.

Special bunnies for Easter.

Darling artwork.

Just look at this adorable watering can painting.

Lots of items in the blue willow motif.  Y'all know I love that!

Wonderful trays and accessories for entertaining.

A great selection of Caspari paper plates and napkins.

Cute tray.  I was tempted, but I am loaded with trays right now.

Check out this darling wrought iron cart.  Perfect for serving 
cocktails and wine on the veranda.

Adorable lamps, and well priced too.

Bed and table linens.

Love this wreath!

Look at these cute carrots!

Easter table accents and place cards.

What a fun store!  It was my first visit, but sure will not be my last.
If you want to learn more about this historic treasure, here is

Thanks for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow to share a
Mardi Gras recipe with you.

Sparkle and Shine and Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Brenham is such a fun little town! My sister-in-law and I had a fun day there a few months ago. Hermann's was by far my favorite part!

  2. We love Hermann's, especially the antique side!

  3. Hi Susan, Brenham has some of the prettiest bluebonnets when in bloom. We lived in the little town outside of Brenham called Bellville. If you ever go there stop into Newmans bakery and sandwich shop on Main street. Wonderful baked goods and good sandwiches. He also has built a "castle" that has become a tourist attraction there. Our middle son David worked for Mike Newman for his first teenage job back in the 1980s when his shop was just a little donut shop in town. I think you would enjoy. Loved your post. ~ carol


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
