Round Top 2010

I arrived in San Antonio with my mother-in-law a week ago Thursday. Friday we were off to the junky fields of Round Top. It was a come as you are party. It's a 3 hour drive from San Antonio so we were off and out very early. We didn't want to miss anything.
It was so humid and hot that I had a hard time taking pictures. My camera lens kept fogging up. Not a good thing for pictures or my camera. (This is a picture taken with a fogged up lens. I didn't have anything in my camera bag to clean the lens with.)
(This is what a picture looks like when your camera has acclimated to the weather conditions.) Candice's friend, Michelle, came with us and is checking out one of our favorite booths.
I'm not sure what kind of spider this is, but it looks dangerous. Creeeeeppyyyy! This spider was probably 3 1/2 inches long. We had a problem with fire ants too.
See that bookcase back there? It is from an old general store. I'm now the proud owner of that beauty. I'm hoping to see it in the near future but I haven't heard from my shipper guy yet. It is always a scary thing. He did deliver my last shipment though (after several months had passed) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I think I'll paint the shelves a medium gray instead of that mustard color. I would have loved to take home that industrial light too but for $750, I had to pass on that big boy.
Those cupboard doors are at least an inch thick. Very hefty. We emailed my husband a picture from Candice's phone and got his approval before purchase. It was a steal. I couldn't believe the price.
What do you think? There might be one little glitch...this cupboard is the exact height of my ceiling. I might have to do a little sanding. It is in two pieces so I'm hoping it will fit just like a built in. My fingers are crossed.
We had lunch at a little restaurant in Round Top called Royers. It was interesting. Every wall and even the ceiling was covered with something.
But my salad was delicious.

Cute Michele with her eyes closed. It's the only picture I got of her. I didn't get any of my MIL.
Candice eating her sandwich. We had a great day and lots of fun even with all the heat. Candice was disappointed that she didn't find a desk and some side tables, but we had better luck when we went back again on Tuesday for the opening of Marburger. It is always an experience. The best part is watching all the people. It is very entertaining. (Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of everyone's purchases or the entertaining people. Sorry.)
