It's that time of year again! We are busy preparing for Fall Antiques Week in Round Top and I know this is going to be the best show yet. Old Glory's theme this fall is ARTFUL SPIRIT, one of the foundations of my signature style and a foundational element that I use everyday in my design and in my life. 

Old Glory TEXAS will be open for Fall Antiques Week
September 27 - October 6, 2018 | 10 to 6 pm daily
206 S. Washington, Round Top (in the heart of town)

To celebrate this artful spirit, I am so excited to host two of my favorite artful spirits and friends who continue to inspire me with their work and their love for what they do.

I met Mary Gregory in Round Top a few years ago and instantly fell in love with her work. We teamed up for the concept and new look for our new store in Round Top in 2016 and we have been collaborating ever since. She truly "gets" both Old Glory's foundational style as well as our love of artful displays, and I am so happy to call her a friend and a personal inspiration. 

We have been selling Mary's artwork in both our Denver & Round Top stores, and it is always a welcome and fitting complement to our found & favorites in-store. There is an elegance, individuality, and natural beauty in all of her work that I love (enough to have four of her pieces in my own home!) and that I know our customers love, too. 

We will have an expanded collection of Mary's work on display and for sale throughout the Fall Show this year, and I can't wait to share more of her beautiful work with our customers. Be sure to visit her website to read more about her and her work.

Another long-time friend of Old Glory and inspiring artful spirit is Jeanne Oliver, a Colorado-based artist and now published author. Jeanne is one of the most hard working, kindest, and of course creative people I've ever met and I'm so happy she is making the trip down to Round Top this fall!

Through her art, her courses and workshops, her blog, her glimpses into her daily life she shares, and now her new book, she celebrates that everyone has a story to tell (a message that resonates with my own ideas about design and life). Her new book, The Painted Art Journal, offers 24 mixed-media projects with step-by-step prompts to help you create personal, authentic, and expressive art. It's a book unlike any other and a great embodiment of Jeanne's talent for helping others discover their own artistic journey. 

I am so excited to host a book signing for her beautiful new book at Old Glory during Fall Antiques Week! Join us to meet Jeanne, get her new book, and celebrate your own artful spirit.
