Our unique stay in Texas and RUG SALE!!

We have hit the ground running here in New Jersey since our return from the buying trip each day spent unwrapping unique pieces at the warehouse to add to your homes or to give as gifts. We are opening boxes after months and months of searching for the finest artisan accessories and handmade accent pieces and furniture.  Current design trend is still soft neutrals but we are solving your dilemma of having a "too sterile" look by offering colorful accents adhering to our commitment of quality and rich materials in the one of a kind pieces you need to make your home the warm, unique center of your lives.
 Artisans are hand delivering their goods to the store, local artists are hanging their own work and we have put together quite a collection in our 7500 square foot space.
To add to our new upholstered collection available right now, more sofas and chairs are due in any day.  We have carefully chosen the rich fabrics and they are ready for immediate delivery.
We hope you visit to experience our collection!

As a second part from our visit to Round Top Texas for the antiques fair I wanted to share our pics of our special "home base" while we were there.

Named after the patron Saint of wine, the Hotel St. Vinzent was the perfect start and finish to our long days spent on the fields. This historic property has been lovingly restored blending sophistication with local charm and provided us with a true feeling of home.

Penny, our beautiful hostess, juggled the care of the four beautiful suites, delicious breakfast and happy hour each day at Prost, their wine bar providing world class vintages.

We stayed in Andi's House, a happy inspiring place named after Penny's friend who courageously battled cancer. Her beautiful photo greets you on the rustic foyer table where Penny had croissants, scones, fruits and cookies waiting for us on the days she wasn't cooking delicious breakfast casseroles.

Loved this leather chair and quirky horn table.

Handsome cowboy photographs were impressive in the hallways.

Loved the white stone on the rustic table...

Outside mine and Roger's bedroom was the perfect spot for a Mora clock. Our suite was aptly named the Carpe Diem! Suite.

Cozy linens....the pillows are embroidered, the side tables,  sculptural.

This stone top antique French desk contrasted beautifully with the metal chair and clean white walls. Inspirational quotes from Andi's journal are hung throughout.

Nan's room called the Giddy Up Suite had a pair of twin iron beds with fur trimmed pillows. Perfectly named ....notice her cowboy boots collected on the fields. It's so hard to resist buying boots as they are so well priced and the selection is endless.

I just LOVED this rustic iron chair had hints of original paint.

The large bathrooms were beautiful with their modern fixtures and old beadboard walls.

In The Summer House is the serene Blue Boots Suite with a blue painted Texas four posted bed.

One of the reasons we love the Round Top area is how friendly the people are. We had fun meeting the other guests at the inn. These gals were in the Green Room.

We had coffee on the porch each day lucky to have the view of this spectacular live oak tree.  This tree is one of only 18 trees maintained by the agricultural school of Texas A&M University. The little path on the left led to a friendly coffee bar, Expressions, where Nan brought back the espresso each morning served by Joe, below. (Rog needs hi-test).

Bikes are provided and the close proximity to Round Top Square makes this perk appreciated.

I just loved the small 19th century stone building named Prost.
 Prost, in German means "cheers!"  Penny has collected world class wine offerings and we enjoyed tastings to make our wine selection each day.

Breakfast was also served in the early 19th century building. I always love the addition of the cutting boards we have easy and add so much.

Casual elegance....

Thick stone walls, limestone floors, beamed ceilings and great wine AND air conditioning!!!  Pure comfort!!

See how thick the walls are??

Lodging is hard to come by and The Hotel St. Vinzent couldn't accommodate us for our whole stay.  Penny has a friend "down the road" who has an event space on their ranch and we ended our trip at what we called "The Ponderosa"!
 Total crack-up! Our bags were moved for us and late one night we entered this place.

Just the 3 of us!! Roger found the lights!!   If the whole town came over we would still have had room for bronco riding inside!!

There were lots of guns, saddles and cowboy hats decorating the space.

Feeling a little like "The Shining" we turned in.

I wasn't tired enough the first night and drove exhausted Rog a little crazy as he kept having to get up to bang the walls.  The mouse sounded as if it was chewing the bed post!!! I slept with the blanket tightly over my head and vowed to make sure I had more wine the next evening. KILL ME!!! I hate rodents!!!

I was happy to see the light of day.

While strolling around the square late one night the 3 restaurants were closed. Roger was thrilled to bump into this guy proud to share his BBQ. The ribs and brisket were mouth watering and after an introduction to the chef we understood why.  It was Eddie Posas, Jr., award winning BBQ national champion!! So much fun!!

We just love this place and can't wait to return in the spring!!  Hope to see you at the warehouse to share the new finds and hear what you've been up to!
