White on White on White…

Thinking about what to blog from my recent trip to Johnson City and Round Top, I realized that so many of the cottages and little historic towns are actually full of vintage white buildings! When I went through all the photos I shot, I notice the theme and thus my title! Round Top and the surrounding areas are really like nothing else around. Driving into Round Top always makes me feel like I’ve just driven into New England.

Bayberry Antiques open during Markets

One of the highlights of my trip to Johnson City and the Karen Divine workshop at
the A. Smith gallery was getting to visit one new place in Round Top,
VRT or The Vintage Round Top
After driving up and seeing one of the owners on the porch, I decided to stop
and check it out!

Well, sweet Smoot, invited me in even though during Antique Week, they actually stay in the cottage themselves. So I was really intruding into their home but he was nice enough to have a brief chat with me and let me snap a few photos of their fabulous interior.

Another special treat was when my Air B & B host mentioned that she could get me in
to see the historic Catholic Church I had mentioned being so beautiful up on the hill.
So we met the morning I left for home and I got to take photos of the beautiful, ornate
alter and statues. I certainly covered a lot of ground in about 5 days but it was a ton of fun!

Audie Murphy Day!

Every year, Farmersville honors Audie Murphy and all veterans and active duty military with a parade and all kinds of celebration! There was a fly over to start the festivities with 3 planes from the Ghost Squadron Commemorative Air Force in DFW, a Vultee BT-15, PT-17 Stearman and T-6. After that, a Vietnam era helicopter, The Ghost Ship Huey 197 flew over several times. Most memorable was a one man bio-play show at 1st Baptist with L.A. actor Duffy Hudson portraying Americas most decorated war hero, Audie Murphy. The scenes of what he went through in the trenches brought tears to many eyes. Of course, a Texas parade isn’t complete without a few horses, cowboys and antique autos!

Oh Alys, how I love you…certainly you already knew?

Curious E y e s…

Driving along a winding road, I came upon a pasture of young
cattle…. Getting out of my car and they must have thought
I was delivering food! Or perhaps, they were just curious in
their young, naive age!
