Shabby Chic at Cedar Creek???????

Yes it is true ! Rachel Ashwell is coming to Round Top. Literally! This is the entrance to the well known Western Chic Style Outpost on Cedar Creek which she purchased from it's talented owner Lenore Prudhomme. Rachel would stay there on some of her forays to buy furnishings etc for her shops. Lenore is currently having an estate sale and things from the Outpost are going fast. I guess it's going to be tougher so score things at the antiques fair before Rachel gets there now. I used to take great pleasure when I bought some French items for the shop and was informed Rachel had gotten there later..... No More! I hope Rachel enjoys her new venture as we in the area are all tickled to death to have a designer of her caliber among us. Joni at Cote de Texas has the head's up from me and is getting the whole scoop read it at
