It's Friday and I had a great morning at The Outpost Resale Shop. I frequent this place so much the employees know what I like and they usually save things for me. Everything you see in the following photos I acquired there today and stayed within my budget of $15.

White Wednesday~

My White Wednesday consists of what I see when I visit other antique shops, shows, and open houses. I will features talents like Judy Hill, Joyce Shillings, Leftovers, and Past Time. It's always an inspiration to me when I can go back to the photos of such great design and incorporate them into my own home. May you be inspired today and everyday to go white.

"New" Shop Tour~

Today, I had the pleasure of visiting a new antiques shop in Victoria.
Past Time is a lovely little shop that just opened it's doors about a month ago. The name of this store says it all because the minute you walk in the door you literally are taken back in time. Plus, with the soft music playing in the background you are instantly at peace. The owner of this shop full of eye candy is Linda Gregory who is not new to the antiques business. Linda also sets up at La Bahia every Spring and Fall. She has a wonderful eye for putting together the most gorgeous displays and vignettes. I spent the whole morning there with Linda who is the sweetest and most genuine person you will ever meet. I was introduced to Linda thru my good friend Joyce Shillings who also has a special talent in creativeness and decorating. So, if you are ever in the Victoria area, stop by and check out this little slice of heaven!
I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Past Time specializes in Shabby Chic Antiques, Linen Slip Covers (Linda makes herself), Personalized Monogramming, Jewelry and Gifts.

White Wednesday~

This week's White Wednesday consists of a mix of textures, colors, and styles. Decorating with "White" can go from Shabby Chic to Traditional Vintage. With so many shades of white, mixing it up with cream and taupe and hints of black are just one of my favorite combinations.
Here's a collection of some pics from the past. White "Chippy" column~

Festival Hill in Round Top Texas~

Back in June when I joined Joyce Shillings to The Big Red Barn show, we stopped by to check out The International Festival-Institute in Round Top. The Festival Hill Campus opened officially in 1976. It certainly was a sight to see, being surrounded by The Gardens at The Festival Hill made you feel like you had traveled to another world. I am always intrigued by the stone work and architecture of places like this. While there students were rehearsing for one of the many performances they have scheduled for the summer. We also visited The Edythe Bates Old Chapel which was built in La Grange in 1883 as the Episcopal Methodist Church of La Grange, Texas. It was used for worship until it was sold to The Festival-Institute in 1994. If you have never been to this wonderful place you must stop by and check it out, you won't be disappointed.
Photos I took of The Festival Hill and it's gardens.
