B&B....and Beautiful!

Thank you to Savvy Southern Style
for selecting this post 
as one of the best links in last week's

Well, hello there!

Just coming up for air long enough to share
my latest photo shoot with you.

As many of you might know,
Fredericksburg, Texas is pretty much
the bed and breakfast capitol of the known world.

There are hundreds of cozy cottages to choose from 
when planning your visit to Fritztown,
but I'd like to offer an extra special plug
to my friend Melissa Mabery's
darling B&B, Cotton Haus.

Located in one of Fredericksburg's many
historic neighborhoods, this adorable abode
could not  be any stinkin' cuter.....

Wow, pretty much sums it up!

Are you dying yet?
I don't know about you,
but I'm now scouring local fleas
for car doors of my very own!
Fab wall art!

Be still, my vintage lovin' heart.

Don't forget to sign the guest book!

And if YOU would like to book a stay
at this quaint little locale,
here's what you need to know:

Back To My Roots

There's no place like home.
Is there?
After taking a two month break from blogging
to focus on other pursuits
( and to take a much needed break ),
I'm happy and excited to be returning to this little ole blog.
I've missed you!
Coming up soon, a magazine feature that I wrote and photographed
on a local boutque owner, Jill Elliott.
And for the holidays, a big shop feature
that I photographed for Binky Morgan's shop in Llano, Texas.
Two features, two different publications.
I'll be sure and share all the deets as the time draws near.
I hope you've all had a rockin' Summer.
Happy to be back!

New French Goodies at Timeless Menagerie

I made a quick stop into one of my favorite
shops in Fredericksburg, Texas,
Timeless Menagerie,
and was delighted to find that the crew
had pretty much totally re-set the store
and it's now filled to the brim
with treasures from Lori's recent
shopping excursion to France.

Quick disclaimer: this was not one
of our regular photo shoots, I just happened by
with only my iPhone. So please forgive the phone pics!

Loved these French postcard bundles.
So many to choose from!

These fantastic, HUGE, to-die-for urns.

To me, the crown jewel from the whole
trip, this enormous wedding portrait.

Whimsical children's books.

Stacks of vintage drawers,
perfect for crafting supplies, letters, anything!

Of course, I grabbed several bundles
of these charming French postcards.

Always plenty of nature-based items
to feather your nest.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Local Beauty

Happy Fourth of July Week!

And welcome to my new "comment-free" blog.
No pressure to leave a pithy quip,
just enjoy the photos, and if you are so inclined,
pay me a visit over at my Facebook page,
I'd love to have you "like" and share my page!

This go 'round, I'm happy to be sharing a few sneaks
and out-takes from an upcoming magazine feature
on my good friend, Jill Elliott.

Jill is an accomplished designer, and owns MY
favorite clothing store in the whole wide world,
Haberdashery Boutique in Fredericksburg, Texas.


Classic Jill, mixing textures and elements
to create the perfect vignette.

The Elliott's historic Hill Country home....
with the welcoming committee in the front yard.

Everything about this space
is perfection to me.

Part of Jill's collection of
tarnished silver. She actually designed
her entire kitchen around this!

I fell in love with this
equine beauty!

And speaking of beauty...

That's beautiful Jill herself!

The magazine feature, which I have written
as well as photographed, will be out later in the Fall.
Details to follow.

But should you find yourself 
in my neck of the woods,
please pay my friend Jill a visit 
at her divine boutique...
