Wishing for Roundtop

I'm starting the weekend with a few of my favorite things. Probably because I'm wishing I was headed to Roundtop, Texas. I'd have my eyes out for more vintage garden urns.

I'm sure I don't have enough ironstone yet either.

And I sure would like to turn up an old French laundry basket.

Tatted lace is definitely on the list.

And old silver.

I only have a few pieces of these English creamware plates. 

Jugs and jars are essential for that country farmhouse look that I can't seem to get enough of these days.

Jars with wire are my current favorites.

Crocheted tablecloths in ecru make anything placed on top look sensational.

Maybe I would even find a new piece of brown transferware.

Well, remembering a few of my favorite things has cheered me up for the day! What are some of yours? I'm linking up to Laurie's Favorite Things to have a look!

Enjoy the weekend!
Ciao! for now!

I opted out of a Roundtop invitation this spring (crazy, I know!), but on the bright side, you could always go to Moustachio Bashio at the El Rey this weekend... Le Chat Lunatique is playing, and that always cheers me up.
All the best to you, Rachel

I love all of your treasures! My husband and I will be going down to Texas to visit his mom soon, but I am afraid I will not be there in time for the show in Roundtop. Have fun for me!!

I found amazing brown transferware at Round Top 5 years ago; I bet there is even more this year. Wish I was there, also. Sally

You have so many pretty pieces, Jacqueline! I've never been to Roundtop but it sounds like a ton of fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Olga said...

All these things are so pretty! I would love to get some vintage garden urns for my garden too.

Pamela said...

Oh i love these treasures too!
You are soo lucky to be going to a place that sells this stuff!! I used to go to a gorgeous antique barn for all these treasures and so so cheap!! I wish I bought more before I moved! You cannot find stuff like this here and if you do it costs the moon!!

Looks like you've got a great sart to most of your collections already, but can we ever have enough..LOL. I, too, am wishing I could be in Texas right now:( I'm not giving up hope for some year though.

Enjoy your weekend.

You have a beautiful collection! I love all of your ironstone and linens. I can't pass up a white pitcher or jug and have recently been drawn to the wire jars... don't know what I am going to do with all of them but I love them!

Shirley said...

Photo's that make one wish that all the joy of yesterday, remain with us tomorrow. I recall ironstone and pretty linen at my Grandmothers home. I still love this style today...
Have a wonderful weekend,

Sarah said...

Jacqueline, I spent the day there yesterday. Come to TX and go with me sometime. ;-) Yes, there was lots of all of the above. I came home with a few new additions of white ironstone and more Mason jars. Mine are the blue. Love the pieces you are showing. Definitely bring a smile here! ~ Sarah

Jacqueline, your photos always look so dreamy. I love the way you put things together. Roundtop is on my bucket list. After seeing these photos, shopping your house would be on my bucket list too. Your favorites today are beautiful. Thank you for linking up. laurie

Hi there,
I'm going to RoundTop tomorrow...the dear daughter "RedNeck Chic" is selling there and I just HAVE to go supervise :^)
By the way, the runner that you sent me looks beautiful in my dining room. As soon as the girl comes home with her camera, I will get a picture off to you.
I will be thinking about you tomorrow,
