Round Top Roundup 2011

This past weekend I joined Tipsy ladies Court and Der on their annual trip to the big antiques/craft show in Round Top, Tx. Unfortunately, the other half of the Tipsy Society were unable to attend due to all the babies being born around here.  We drank too much beer, spent too much money, and ultimately had a blast. Here are some memories from that day…

We learned from the lady at the gas station, who may or may not have been drinking on the job, that Round Top is officially the smallest town in Texas

Court obtained a new tool to go along with her mini champagne, and a cute new wristlet.

We came prepared with a travel beer cooler to help us make it through the day.

Court hesitated about this giant red bowl, and Der swooped in and bought it.

She also found a very cute personalized blanket for Aiden.

I found a cute little green end table for dirt cheap.

And Court splurged on a beaded cross cuff bracelet, which she talked about every 5 minutes for the rest of the day.

Hang Your Hat Up

I recently shared with you my unusual method of necklace storage, so I thought I would now share my ingenious method of hat storage. You see, I have a lot of hats. I have learned from experience that sunburnt scalps suck so if I spend any amount of time in the sun (which is all the time in spring and summer) I will have a hat on my head. While trying to figure out a way to cleverly store my hats without crushing them, I happened upon  some tie back hooks I had leftover from hanging curtains. There in lies my genius. You can just screw them into the wall and hang up your hat. They come in packages of 6 for about $1, and you can usually make more than one hat fit on each hook.  Like I said, ingenious.

Fabulous Footwear Friday

I came across these shoes recently on Payless’s website and was instantly attracted. I love the different textures and colors. Not to mention these babies are peep toes so my little feetsies will be able to breathe in all this heat we have here.

I’m Just Teasing

I have mentioned before that I have fine, thin hair. That being said, my sister recently introduced me to my new best friend, the Spornette Little Wonder Teasing Brush. This is little wonder gives me tons and tons of volume. I’m talking Snooki levels, no bump-it required. I use it with hair spray when I need more height, and without when I just want a little boost.
