In December 1999 we moved from the big city to Fayette County in Central Texas to a vintage California - style white stucco bungalow that was in need of some TLC. Little did we know that we were locating just 16 miles south from the area of the Warrenton and Round Top Antiques Weekend... perfect! After all this time we still love it here and are almost done with the house. Oh, that's such a lie!
The Dhuri Indian rugs are what gives us the color scheme
for this time of year.
The blue fishes in the Summertime bathroom here, have been replaced by this trio of pretty brass fishes that I found in a Houston thrift store at half-price, so that would be ten dollars...
We love our Gary Larsen in the Library!
A pivotal point in our decorating is the change-out of the picture over the "throne". This is a print by an artist named Carl L. Blonner. He was popular at the same time as Charles Dana Gibson, who painted the Gibson Girls. I can't find out much about him, but I'll keep looking. I like his style and I found this at Canton for five bucks a few years ago.
Need. More. Towels.
This little plaque is an antique postcard reproduced on a thin piece of wood. It was made by my friends Troy and Rob of Rue Chic out of Dallas.
They used to show at Warrenton during the Antique Weekends, but not for the past few years.
I wonder where they are now?
Now... I need your advice.
You see, I don't like the shower curtain I chose...too brown...too dark...
Just. don't. like. it.
Would you please just pop on over and take a look at these three shower curtains and leave me a comment on which you think would best work for my Autumn bathroom?
