I had this fantastic dream . . .
It is perfect TX afternoon with clear blue skies, and I am in the middle of the beautiful hill country. I am sitting at a table outside surrounded by not only nature, but lovely historic cottages and old barns. At the table, I am joined by a wonderful group of creative women, and we are enjoying lunch together. Across from me sits the always inspiring, always fabulous Rachel Ashwell and we are sharing our junkin' stories.
On my lunch plate (my very favorite) there is a grilled shrimp BLT, a large iced tea, and a slice of homemade chocolate chip pie from Bud Royer's kitchen.
After many laughs and shared stories at lunch, my new friends and I take a tour with Rachel on her gorgeous property. We end up in her new Shabby Chic Couture store and get to be one of the first to shop, with it's grand opening being the following day.
Could this dream be real?! Yes! It is!
I am one of 35 LUCKY bloggers who will be having lunch with Rachel Ashwell at her Round Top B&B, The Prairie in less than 2 weeks!
Lunch will be catered by the o-so-famous Bud Royer and the delicious Royer's Round Top Cafe.
Even better, a portion of the luncheon proceeds will be benefiting Dwell with Dignity, a non profit group of Interior Designers and volunteers that are dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty.
Of course I will post photos and details about my experience, but here are a few photos of The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell, so you know why I am so excited!!
Thank you Kelley at The Hidden List for making my dream come true!
