Pie Heaven!

I've been to Round Top before on our treasure hunts, but never have tried the famous pies at Royer's Cafe! My Mom & I took a little trip to Royer's the day before we got to meet Rachel Ashwell...
let me tell you...Bud has created ...

I decided to go with their bestseller...the Apple Pie...Yummy!
It has stacks of fresh, delicious Granny Smith apples that are topped with a decadent brown sugar and pecan they say at Royer's...OMGX6! 

The apple pie at Royer's is hands down the BEST apple pie I have ever had in my life and I can't believe it took me this long to try it...
OMG I have been missing out on all this deliciousness!

After our wonderful lunch at The Prairie...Mom & I stopped by Bud's new Pie Shop and got a few pies to take home...I am trying to save mine for Thanksgiving...but I have a feeling it's going to be gone by next week for sure!

I was so impressed by Bud's service to many parts of the community. Bud donates 2 pies to every project completed by Dwell with Dignity. Dwell with Dignity is a non-profit group of Interior Designers and volunteers that create inspiring home design for families struggling with poverty and homelessness.

Bud also runs Operation : Desert Pie, for $76 you can send 2 delicious pies to a soldier...
what a wonderful gift to receive..."The Ultimate Slice of Home"

Thanks Bud for such a wonderful lunch!

Lunch On The Prairie

This weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Rachel Ashwell's new B & B... 

The whole day was just amazing...the lunch hosted by Bud Royer of Royer's Cafe, The tour of Rachel's lovely B & B, and her gorgeous new store....Shabby Chic Couture.

 Bud Royer and Rachel Ashwell...both were so humble and down to earth...LOVE them both!

My favorite part of the trip, besides meeting Rachel & Bud, was shopping at Rachel's new store at
The Prairie ...Shabby Chic Couture

All of Rachel's upholstered furniture is SO comfy & next sofa will definitely be one of hers! I would love this light blue chaise for my bedroom...I adore it!

Purple velvet...what better place to snuggle with that special someone! This was my Mom's favorite piece...and she doesn't even like purple!

 We are in the process of adopting a little girl hopefully sometime this year and this vintage Italian paint by number would be such a sweet addition to her room...stunning!

 How cute are these pillows! Love both the Union Jack & Texas flag reinvented in a softer palette...
also adore the cute little pin attached!

 Who wouldn't want to dive right into this bed?

My favorite thing in the store? This gorgeous french bench upholstered in a luscious yummy blue velvet...perfection!

Stay tuned for more posts about our trip to Round Top and our incredible visit to The Prairie!
A BIG thanks to Rachel & Bud!
a beautiful cause that I hope to be a part of!
and The Hidden List....Thanks Kelley!!!
