Winter time is such a quiet, unique time in the country at Rachel Ashwell’s bed & breakfast in Round Top, Texas called The Prairie. I’ve adored Rachel’s style and all things Shabby Chic since I first discovered it years ago and when I learned she had opened up & styled her own B&B just a few hours away from me, I KNEW I had to stay there eventually! My first opportunity came in the winter time when the town & property is quiet and there isn’t much going on which is quite a dramatic contrast from the hectic days of antique week in April and October when the tiny town swells from population 90 to 60,000! I pulled onto the dirt roads of The Prairie on a chilly evening to find myself being the only person staying there that night which oddly enough, I didn’t find spooky or scary at all! The property and rooms were so cozy and I was quickly greeted by the sweetest kitty who followed me everywhere I went so she helped to keep me company. I settled in and quickly made myself at home by taking a warm bath in the vintage clawfoot bathtub and snuggling in under the mounds of luxurious dreamy soft bed linens in the Lilliput Lodge while the temperatures dropped and winds blew outdoors and before I knew it, I was sleeping like a kitten. I roamed the property the next morning and snapped a few pictures to share so enjoy taking a peek of The Prairie through the lens of my camera…….oh, and P.S……..if you’re planning a wedding or event at The Prairie and are looking for a photographer, I’m your girl.
