We went out to Old Town Spring today. The picture above shows how it all began out there... Lots of Texas history there.
Now it's all about all the little shops out there. There are clothing shops, antiques, galleries, furniture shops, A "Doll Hospital", pet grooming, candy stores, restaurants and so much more. You can check it out at www.oldtownspring.com .
We wanted to just take a day off and do some window shopping in one of our favorite places. It takes the whole day to get thru all the shops and with the HOT,HOT weather we're already having here, ya kinda linger a little bit longer in the air conditioning...... This is my favorite shop.... Shabby Rose. Really sweet lady owns the place and I love her stuff. Lots of pink and roses and fluff and fru-fru. I found a few treasures today. She makes her own soaps in fabulous scents using "fresh goats milk and glycerin".
The house she's in is 100 years old and is just fabulous! I wish I have a picture to share with you of the inside..... I took my camera with every intention of taking pictures but I got distracted by everything she has in the shop.
It's about 45 minutes from home but I don't get out there as often as I'd like.
Stopped at a farm on the way home to pick up some fresh vegetables. There are three on the way and stopping at one or two makes the trip to Old Town Spring just that much better
