Liberty Hill....population 1,409.... 1.9 square miles.... out west of Georgetown. Just a small town where we've been for a few weeks. OH - MY - GOSH... it's been soooo HOT! Everyday over 100 degrees.... and no rain. It's so dry out there. But ..... We had such a nice time. After living in Houston day to day it's nice just to take a break somewhere like Liberty Hill...........
Just down the way from Liberty Hill is Oatmeal. Oatmeal Texas. We saw a sign and had to go check it out. As far as we could find..... this is it! There's an Oatmeal Festival there in July but we weren't still there to find out what it's all about. Ya know how ya go into a town and see the sign that says, "Population ....." They don't have a sign. But we had to get this picture!
Pay NO attention to the dates on the pictures. We forgot to set the date!

We found lots of little shops out in that direction. We went into Marble Falls and Leander (Population in July 2007: 11,123) and Burtram and Georgetown and found the thrift shops and antique stores and found lots of goodies. Even found an estate sale just before we left in Burtram ( a total area of 1.1 square miles with 387 households).
These are some of my goodies. WHAT BARGAINS!
I fell in love with this "chenille" bedspread!

And the little birds, so sweet!

Bottles and buttons and hats.........

Look at the pink and black hat!

The pieces of china are mostly mismatched but they we 5 and 10 cents. look at the little pitcher, cute!

HOW could I leave them behind at that price??? Linens, too! Doilies, tablecloths, pillowcases, dresser scarves.... I still have more to unpack!


  1. Wow! You hit the jackpot! Can't believe the prices on those plates! How exciting for you!

  2. I can't believe the $$ on those items ... lucky someone who goes there. Very nice presentations. TTFN ~Marydon
