Trip to Roundtop Texas

I have some great pictures to share with you from my trip last week. I flew into Houston Airport were I rented a car to drive 100 miles or so to Round Top Texas, home of the Round Top Antiques Fair.

This TV stand is made from the back of a car! If you love a car, why not turn it into something useful after it's broken down?
