Shopping in the Village on Sunday afternoon...

The Village of Wimberly. Texas that is... I posted a few offerings on Blue Monday... here are some of the other pretties that I saw... and or bought... bet you're wondering what I purchased aren't you???


The entry to some of the shops... Garden Gate...

Oh my! A Christmas sale greeting as I walked in the door!

Little song birdies called me over to visit...

Bunnies-bunnies everywhere... reminded me of my pal Dana at the Stone Rabbit... wouldn't you just be in Heaven here Miss Dana??? tiny little Easter eggs at River House... Be gentle * Be patient * Be wise... I try to be all these things... don't you?
Beautiful handmade beeswax candles from Lynchburg, Virginia... in a pale pink... maybe I should have saved these for Pink Saturday? also at River House...
and just a couple of doors down was a little shop called Chick-a-dee, which turned out to be my favorite! Look at this kitchy little pink plaid purse and matching spike heels from the early 1960's... I can just see my mom wearing these!

They also had many old books... look what I found Muse...
and wouldn't this just look lovely on my front porch... I think so... sorta tongue in cheek humor ya know...

loved this antique biscuit jar... but not the price... $58... ouch! and a little basket of vintage hankies... $3 each... what a bargain!

and I loved these little dolls... do they still make them? I had many as a little girl, given to me by my Dad. He purchased them as he traveled, and then brought them home to me! and vintage flour sacks... they were so pretty don't you think?
These three little lambs greeted me at the entry of a store, as I was leaving... I didn't get to stop, but I took their picture anyway... so I'll remember to go back... So, what did I buy on my shopping in the Village trip last Sunday... well here's a hint...


But I must get back to my office decorating... did I tell you Ricky put the flooring in tonight... it's beautiful!... anyway, come back Friday morning... by then I'll have some pics of what's in the bags... I think you're going to like them... and no, it's not the biscuit jar!

Exhausted, but lovin' it, down here in French Lique!

Hi Dixie,
That was fun! That funeral sign thing had me chuckling. My mom wore checked shoes and dresses in the early sixties, maybe you got a pair of those? I'll check back Cindy

Oh, Dixie, you DO know my heart is in a flutter over those darlin' bunnies!! :) I also got a kick out of the Funeral sign--that would be fun on a front porch--as long as it twern't my funeral! :) Looking forward to the reveal of your purchase! Dana

Ah! I wanted to see what you bought!

I wish I could go buy at least one of those lambs for my daughter; she collects lambs.

I am SERIOUSLY hoping it's the "Funeral Route" sign 'cuz I am absolutely in love with it! What a hoot! I would buy that in a heartbeat, much to my family's chargrin.

Dixie, Loved the shopping spree, it's funny, cuz I just got done putting a shopping spree post from when I went last Saturday before I stopped in to say hi to you! They say brilliant minds think alike! ;) I say you bought the birdies...the key word was that you said "they were calling you over". That's my vote and I'm stickin to it! teahehe! Now you'll have to come over and see the finds I located on my spree! ~Ciao for now... ~CC
