So many kindred spirits ~

It seems this blogging world gathers together
those who truly are kindred spirits ~
I've made so many friends
by having this ol' blog and the wonderful thing is
we all love the same things!!!!

Our blogs attract like-minded friends...
artistic friends,
decorating friends,
friends with teenagers,
friends with toddlers,
friends who love to sew,
or friends who maybe even enjoy cooking!!!!
The list goes on and on, doesn't it?

Those who end up reading your blog and the blogs you end up
loving as well will most likely have TONS in common with you and
then you know you are indeed,
kindred spirits!!!

I arrived at the airport last Thursday afternoon
and found Lisa and her sweet babies waiting
for me right outside and we didn't even skip a beat!!!!
Right from talking on the phone to
flapping our jaws in person....
it was wonderful ~

Well, Friday we took off and were on our way to Ann's
but had planned a stop at Winnie & Tulula's
to meet Debby of Talkin' Trash and enjoy this incredible shop!!

Here are a few pics I took at Winnie & Tulula's:
Look at that Deb working the window!!!

We had the MOST fun with sweet Deb of Talking Trash and had
lunch at the bistro inside the shop ~ it was so DELISH!!

 We loved the menus created from old books and torn papers....

The gorgeous space of Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade ~

It was such a great afternoon!! I just love these girls.....

I hope you've enjoyed the tour...OH and I forgot to tell you,
I bought the most INCREDIBLY beautiful
net panels to hang in our living room
on those huge old windows!!!
And you know as soon as I have them hung I'll give you a peek :)
Have a very happy Wednesday precious friends
and sweet kindred spirits ~

hugs and love,

Sounds like you had an awesome time. I am heading to Texas in June to visit with best friend and hubby's family. We lived there for 5 years and you know I never went to any of these cool places. That is going to change. I am going to McKinny, Winnie and Tahlulas and more.
thanks for sharing your trip.

Gail said...

Oh Dawn!
I don't even know where to begin.......first, thank you so much for sharing your amazing photos with us so we can live vicariously through you! What an amazing trip you had and such beauty you've seen....I'd be forever changed!
I think it's so funny how in almost every photo of anyone taken in Texas they show those HUGE wasps nests.....they're awesome! Especially when they're empty!
I'm so glad you had such a fun trip. It's fun spreading your wings, isn't it?

That velvety bedskirt is absolutely gorgeous!!!!

Margo said...

Thank you so much for coming by and for writing about us. I'll be adding this post to our blog roll.

Oh Dawn.....I'm sighing, I'm oohing, I'm aahing-what great pictures- the only thing I can think of that would be more fun than shopping with you two would be crafting with you and Lisa.

Your photos of W&T's are wonderful. Seeing the shops through your lens makes me so proud to be a small part of such a beautiful shop!

Oh, Dawn, I know what you mean. This little screen in front of us with all the buttons to push has opened up a whole new world of friends via blogging! You talked about leaving your comfort zone to fly out to Texas but I think you FOUND a whole lot of comfort when you all met up out there! I's truly wonderful!!
Hugs and blessings,

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

W&T is just as lovely as your pictures show but even more better in person. I can't wait to try out the Bistro. Isn't that Deb a hoot and a half!!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Dawn, your photos are just gorgeous! I was so disappointed that I didn't get to meet up with you girls at a Winnie & Tululas when Lisa ask me about meeting you there, but I ended up having to go to the Doctor to get my soft cast off, and that was the only day they could do it that week! I hope you make another trip this way so we can meet! Do you ever go to the Warrington/Roundtop show? Maybe we could all meet up there sometimes... what fun that would be! Glad you girls had a great time... blessings~~~ Daphne

Oh... where do I start? What an incredibly beautiful store, I could spend hours just looking through every single detail! Wow -

Thanks so much for the post


Vicki said...

Hi, Dawn. These pics are amazing. So many beautiful things in these photos. I didn't realize Daphne sold in the same store! I love her bags! I am so glad you enjoyed your trip. I"m going back to study those pics some more!

What a grand trip with sweet friends! And such eye candy in those stores - oh my! Blessings ~ Heidi

Lisa said...

Hey girl,
OMG, you got the most amazing shots of W&T, my fave is the one of the inside of Debs window. Really cool shot. I feel like a loser for not getting many shots, there was so much beauty there I just was dumbfounded. I want my beds dressed by Gloria!!!!! Waaaa Me crying. LOL In the future could you try to get a photo of me that doesn't look like someone just goose'd me! Lisa

I wanted to leave you an amazing comment to rival these amazing photos but I cannot get my chin up off the desk. Seriously, you must have been in heaven!!

Shari Valicenti said...

Thank-you for sharing the lovely photos and your wonderful experience with us. It was a wonderful window into all artistic and creative world you saw there. Saw some wonderful ideas for display in my own home.

Pam @ Frippery said...

I am sooo jealous. I met Debbie in August but just for a few hours and I never got to W and T. She is a hoot, a true original, authentic and beautiful woman. What wonderful photos of a lovely time. So much creativity flows around all of these marvelous people. You are definitely one of the tops.
