Holiday Reflections Show

If you've been reading my side bar for events any recently I know you've noticed Carol Carroll's Holiday Show that starts tomorrow in Temple Texas.  We had the pleasure of being there today to do this post to help her get the word out and to show you not only her awesome home, which everything she says will be for sale, but to highlight the vendors that are setting up with her.  She's set up a big white tent to showcase the vendors and Stephanie of Gathering's Antiques of Georgetown has set up her space in the garage area.  Carol transforms her home into a magical event once a year to raise money for a great cause, The Ronald McDonald Home.

I'll start out by showing you Stephanie's space.

Stephanie had all things vintage, white wreaths, vintage christmas, photo's, wasp nest (which I loved), pictures, furniture, she seemed to have a little bit of everything.  It looked great!  Click on the picture above to see it all.

Now on to Carol's home.  Because I took so many pictures I'm going to show you one picture from each room and you'll have to check out the slide show to see them all:

 This is her Laundry Room.  Wait until you see the rest, I thought it's one of the most prettiest Laundry rooms I've seen.

 This is her kitchen area.

 This cute dog picture vignette is one of the bedrooms.

 Here is her sitting room.

 This gorgeous tree was in her dining room.

 I loved this display of wheels and pictures which was in her hallway.

 This cute display was in her entry way.

 Here's her bathroom.  Someone would have to seriously make me leave this bathroom because I wouldn't want to leave for a while.  So spa like, don't you think.

 This was the master bedroom.

Here's her living room.  There's still one more bedroom to see and lots more pictures.

Click on the slide show to get a good look of the rest of her home:

The other vendors were setting up today, so I don't have pictures to show you but here's a list of who all will be there:

Gatherings - Georgetown, Texas
Precious Memories - Temple
His Country - Temple
Old Time Primitives- Belton
Scentsy & Southern Living - Temple
Vintage Sue- Kansas

Carol's Holiday Reflections Show opens at 10:00 am tomorrow morning and you can shop until your hearts content until 8:00pm and it runs through Friday.  Remember there's a $20 admission fee to help the Ronald McDonald House.

The address is: 8050 Hartrick Bluff Road in Temple, Tx  76502.

Tomorrow we are headed to Brandi and Micki's place to show you what you'll find at their Barn Sale, which starts on Friday.  You don't want to miss this sale if you are in the Austin/San Antonio area; we drove 3 hours just to get there so I know you die hards won't be scared off from the distance.  You'll regret it if you don't go.  Just wait until you see the pictures!


  1. Wow...what a beatiful home and what a wonderful cause. I will be lucky to get Christmas done in my house by Christmas and she has already done hers. Have a great weekend and thanks for the lovely pics.

  2. Carol's house looks fantastic! I was wondering if you could tell me the best towns for antiquing that are not too far outside the Austin area? Maybe within an 1 hour or so? I know you know where all the good stuff is and I have rarely been farther than Georgetown.

  3. Drats, I have to work this weekend, so no barn sale for me. BOO!
    Oh well, great pics, T! I loves me a swanky bathroom!

  4. Great house! Thanks for the tour!
    Take care,

  5. There's nothin' better than Texas, now is there! You gals have the best stuff and the best sales! Way to go! Everything looks amazing.


  6. Lovely and it's terrific that I know have proof online that other people start decorating for Christmas way before Thanksgiving!

  7. Beautiful pictures!!!
    Happy day.

  8. Great slide show, T, my faves have to be that framed bulletin board with the sheet music and the wall of wheels. Love it! So much inspiration! Thanks for all the great photos.

  9. Totally LOVE what she has done with that bycicle wheels!!!
