Texas and a Blue Man

No, I did not see any UFOs in Roundtop, well I did see a few things that I was unsure what in the world they were. But here are a few pics. of the great time I had. Susie did a great post on the trip so I don't want to bore you with the details.

I just loved this picture of this booth...so shabby chic..


This is a old sink, turned into a water feature. There is a pipe and little pump under the sink that keep the water moving...The table below I bought it to go in our cottage in Mississippi. It was from a school library in San Antonio. I will show you how it looks as soon as I bring it.


That arrangement on the table was so beautiful...but really was to big for our small place.

Blue, blue, everywhere...love the stuff, but Camo Man would not let me in the house if I brought home anymore dishes. Next best thing, take pictures of them.

Speaking of Blue. This is my son , blue from head to toe. It was homecoming week at his school. The school colors are Blue and Gold, so he wanted to be a Blue Man for the day..


He was smart enough to wait and paint his hands after he arrived at school.
If you ever need to be Blue...painters tape is an easy way to cover your shoes...

I always say you never know what you will see or learn on a Blog... Blogging don't ya love it?

Welcome back!

Cute oars next to the sink.. love the color, I guess that's what caught my eyeball.

Wow, did the paint come off you son ok? Or more so the question should be.. did it come off your towels and shower after he bathed?

Oh my word.. I don't want to know.

Glad to see you did find that special wee something and when you get to the cottage this fall, take a mobil an upload it for us!

Blaise is cracking me up!!! I love the white eyes showing. I bet you had blue in your shower for days. Does that stuff itch? Maddy was a witch one year and it itched her so bad we had to go to Maw Maw's and wash her face off. I didnt get to see your pictures of RoundTop. These are great. I really liked the first one...and the one of Blaise of course! Have a great day and you know what I will be doing for the next three days~....Painting

Oh what an exciting trip you must have had looking at so much cool stuff!!! The pic of your son is just too hilarious. I've often wondered about that body paint when I see people wearing it at football games. DID it come off easily?
Can't wait to see the table when it comes home to ya.

Looks like you had lots of fun in Roundtop! I loved the shabby chic booth and the blue plates...so tempting! You son is a clever guy with his blue shoe trick! Happy week!...Debbie

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Yep! We were cool and green when green wasnt cool...kinda like country. Do I feel a song coming on, Ha!

Elle said...

I am so sad, and so glad that I didn't get to round top, I'm sure I would've spent a fortune, on the items in your pictures alone... never mind the other 400 displays!

Jen R. said...

Oh, wow, how long did it take to remove all of the paint? I bet the teachers were surprised when he walked in!

missbmckay said...

Fun Post! The sink is an awesome IDEA! I'd love to do that in the garage/shop. Make it a little more me than a regular utility sink.
