Holly Mathis pop-up shop

It feels like fall y'all.
Besides the glorious weather that rolled in this morning
{and by glorious I mean non-sauna like conditions}
it also means its time for Round Top.
You can see previous posts on the antique mecca here and here.
Twice in the past week I've stopped just before getting to Round Top,
instead heading into the beautiful, bucolic Brenham, Texas.
Better known for being the home of Blue Bell Ice Cream
it also has the most charming little downtown area
where my sweet friend Holly Mathis 
has turned part of her work/office space into a retail shop!
She has a cool collection of home decor items 
from small {candles, books, decorative tchotchkes}
to large {chairs, benches, painted hutches} 
and every size in between {pillows, wall art}.
Don't take my word for it though.
You know me.
I have an iphone and I'm not afraid to use it...

I know.
Her window had me at hello.
And that chair!
Swoon!
If only I had a place to put it, I would've snapped it up.
Believe me when I tell you I came home and started moving furniture.
I know you're not shocked by that.
The hubs came home to a new arrangement and was rolling his eyes
with one of those "not again!?!?!?!" looks.

There's something for everyone here at every price point.
Of course the blue and white porcelain caught my eye...

and this set of art prints below 
would be divine framed in a dining room...

Give me an oyster shell topiary tree any day
but especially with the Christmas holidays approaching...

Of course I'm obsessed with the pillows...

that I'm dying to try...
on our dining room furniture.
Allegedly if the hubs is reading this.

Once I pick the color it will be for reals.

 Actually I don't think this one is for sale
but I took a close up of the detail work...

You're welcome. ;)

Check Holly's instagram for updates on store hours.
I think her plan is to be open every day during the Round Top show,

Bottom line 
if you're anywhere in the vicinity,
whether you're on the road to or from Round Top
go see Holly at 220 East Alamo in Brenham.
I'll be in there again soon with my shopping list.
In the meantime it's time y'all...

Stay tuned to see what I score...

  1. Nancy.. I've been to Brenham many times with my girls. It would have been a lot more fun if Holly's shop was there. Have a good weekend.

  2. What a great little shop Holly has created. Wished I had gotten to Round Top while my girl was in Texas.

  3. You make me want to jump in the car and head to Round Top! The weather is perfect for a day of shopping. Can't wait to see what you find.

  4. I am a big fan of Holly's style. Thank you so much for featuring her shop. I LOVE that Maya Angelou sign and I don't like signs.
