Last week my lovely mother and I took a trip to Roundtop Texas – with population 90 at first you might ask what was there for us to visit? Well being HUGE fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines from the show Fixer Upper, we love antiques and the shabby chic decor, so this led us to the biggest and best antique fair where Joanna does a lot of her shopping!
Check out Joanna Gaines, her blog and market here.
Walking through fields of tents and picking through rows of dusty antiques was a lot of fun but we wanted to make a pit stop at the resort designed by the queen of shabby chic herself – Rachel Ashwell. The Prairie is a huge property with multiple little cottages for visitors to stay, decked to the nines with southern charm and chic furnishings. The property is also a place were many people find their happily ever after and host their weddings! After driving off the beaten path to find this place I was blown away by how beautiful it was – the breath taking views mixed with the shabby chic styled property I was absolutely in love. Rachel Ashwell sure is an amazing talent at creating an environment that is both cozy and romantic but still has a sense of glamour.

Have you ever tried your hand at antiquing? What are your thoughts on the Shabby Chic style?
