Giddy Up Shabby Chic Gals!

The Rachel Ashwell Ranch
I was catching up on my blog reading over at Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic, and could not believe what I was actually reading!  Rachel has bought the Texas inn, The Outpost at Cedar Creek.  Under Rachel's reign the inn will be known as, The Ranch by Rachel Ashwell.  The ranch is a few miles out from Round Top, Texas, home of one of the largest antique shows in the nation.  Rachel has been a visitor to the show for years, and I can surely see why she would be interested in a property  there.  I remember reading an article awhile back where she mentioned that she would like to have her own hotel someday.  I didn't expect that it would be a ranch, but the current inn has cottages, guesthouses, and even an Airstream Trailer on the property.  A Shabby Chic Airstream Trailer...oh how I would be in heaven in there!

I am already lovin' the inn as is, but I am sure what Rachel does with it will be nothing short of magnificent.  Hopefully I will get the opportunity to stay there someday and visit the Round Top show!

In other Rachel Ashwell news...
Her 7th book, Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic, Inspiration and Beautiful Spaces, will be out in October.
