My husband and I celebrated 30 years of marriage by going on a junkin trip and spending time with our boys. This was the best Anniversary gift we could have received was to spend time with them and since this is what we both wanted we had a great time (of course the diamond bracelet my husband gave me just added to the great trip).
We spent Friday in Dallas and McKinney and the weekend in Austin. We were headed to Fredricksburg but got side tracked with our kids and just decided it was too hot to head that way. It was 102 in Dallas and Austin, both days. And could you feel every bit of the heat and humidy.
The first place we stopped off at on our Friday trip to Dallas was Gina's beautiful shop, Country Garden Antiques:
I first saw this display on her blog and couldn't wait to see it in person. The large flat cages she said were originally in a green house. She had a great arbor and candleabra. Loved the manniquin too.
She also made the latest issue of Victoria Magazine where they showed pictures of her booth at Zapp Hall in Warrenton during this past show. She always has such great things.
Our next stop was to see Carolyn Westbrook's shop:
She had so many pretty things for sale. I hope if you are headed to Dallas you'll check out both shops. Their shop info. is on their blogs.
I'll show you were we stopped in McKinney tomorrow. And then stay tuned for what we saw in Austin.
