The show was in this very Texas-style wood building near the parking lot.
Yeya's, my favorite local shop for vintage garden items, had some great items on display. You can see my previous post on Mario's shop near downtown here.
Mario always has an incredible selection of gates and iron doors along with other great vintage stuff.
Mario's friend Hector the Collector was exhibiting around the side along with Re-Vamp, a new shop in town which I plan to check out soon. If you are going to the Round Top Show you will find Mario and Hector exhibiting at Warrenton too.
The old greenhouse (to the right) was filled with vintage items and antiques as well.
The Texas version of gabion walls of cattle-panel wire fencing filled with local limestone and topped with pavers surround the exhibit area. The gorgeous planters on the wall looked like stone and were available for sale from one of the vendors.
Plenty of detail photos on the walls in case I want to do this somewhere in my yard.
Time to check out the grounds of Los Patios which has several different venues available for weddings and private events.

The carved-stone front of Salado Creek Boutique is impressive too
A pond and waterfall flows out from inside the boutique.
Inside to outside pond.
A walk around the park-like grounds revealed stunning oak trees. It's amazing how much cooler it is along the creek and with all the trees to shade us.
A surprisingly vigorous bamboo grove grows near Salado Creek toward the back of the property.
A service road in the bamboo forest. I'm amazed at how well bamboo grows in some areas of town considering we are mostly built on limestone rock and have limited rainfall.
The bamboo grows into these oaks near the barbeque pavilion
The pavilion is along the creek and a small stream with limestone falls is diverted around the building
There's a dog-friendly outdoor cafe near the trail to the right of this building.
The effects of drought and the economy are showing a bit and I found myself thinking more than once that they really need a gardener. Then again, I like the natural look of the place too.
Either way it is still a beautiful place to walk on a hot day.
The House to Home show is held about every eight weeks and will be at Los Patios again this Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15. You'll not only see some great vintage items, you can take a cool walk around the grounds.
