Antiquing We Go

I have wanted to go to the Round Top Antique show for a long time . 
It has been three years since my last visit and I think I have antique withdrawal !
 So when I told my daughter-in-law she said,"Let's go ."

 The weather was just perfect. Not too hot or too cool .

We saw many wonderful treasures .
I looked for a vintage sign to add to the ones hanging on my fence
surrounding the garden .
Lisa wanted to add to her Fiesta ware .

There where tents,tables of antiques.yummy things to eat,and people everywhere !!!

It was also a little overwhelming and very expensive
I can not think of anything better than spending an entire day with 
my son and his sweet family .

I think my antique withdrawal is over
the spring show !!


I am linking to Thursday's Simple Pleasure .


  1. Oh Dottie such fun!!
    Looks lilke agreat day overall!!
    What a beautiful family you have!!!

    I've missed you dear friend... :)

  2. I must check out Round Top....sounds wonderful!

  3. Antiques or not, it looks like a wonderful day with your kids!

  4. Pretty family, pretty day. Hope the little ones did not get too pretty tired.

    My cousin used to collect Fiesta ware and then she found out that the ones she had were from a time that there was iron in the glaze (or something harmful). She now displays them only. The later ones are okay to use. I am repeating my cousin, and I do remember some news about this several years ago, but I do not know if it proved to be correct.

    We are finally having cool days as well as nights. I love fall, but I do look forward to the cold days of winter. I love being in the sun on a cool day. It feels like a soft warm blanket thrown across you.

  5. Glad you had a fun time, too!!!!

  6. It sounds like your weekend was much like mine. The only difference is I was in North TX in Canton. We had great weather too. Did you find any bargains?

  7. I must tell you that your post made me a bit envious. I am not yet a mother-in-law, but I AM a daughter-in-law...and I have the best MIL on the entire planet. We used to LOVE going shopping together...but since we don't live near one another right now, that just isn't happening. And I really miss those days!!

    It looks and sounds like y'all had a great time.


  8. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Family, sunshine and cool weather, seeing things you enjoy... and, spending time with the grands trumps ALL of that! =)

  9. Looks like a perfect day! And it's so great to spend time with our family...the best of times! I sure hope you feel better soon! Are you reading a good book today...and drinking hot tea? I'm having cinnamon apple tea right now! Wish I could share some with you! ♥

  10. Dottie,
    I LOVE flea markets and could just look and look and look some more! My daughter and I share this Simple Pleasure. Glad you had a good time!


  11. What could be better than this? Great Simple Pleasures post!

  12. I'm a browser, but haven't been in years! This just gave me the itch. I love your simple pleasure, and that lunch table looks so full of love! Glad you enjoyed it!

  13. Dear sweet friend,
    I cannot tell you enough how your kind comments were the sweetest medicine for what my aching heart was going through. I treasure your prayers and friendship…bunches!
    I have shaken off the dust and I am dancing again….even if it’s a slow dance, I’m dancing!
    Thank you again, and again.
    Love you,

  14. How simply fun! Beautiful family!
    dee dee

  15. I lived in Texas for a while and unfortunately never made it to the Round Top Antiques Show. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. Your family is just beautiful. That's the best simple pleasure of all!!
