This past Spring I visited one of my favorite places Brenham Texas (Home of the yummy Bluebell Ice Cream). It's a small quaint little Texas town approximately an hour 1/2 away from me. Not far from the beautiful Antique Rose Emporium featured earlier on my blog. Now this is the best time to visit so you can see the Bluebonnets in full bloom. It has some great antique shops and vintage places to eat.
On the way back home there are some amazing sites like old abandoned buildings and windmills. I always try and imagine what it all looked like when those parts were alive and kicking.
There are also plenty of antiques to shop around for which is always fun.And my personal favorite, an old Drive Inn Movie Theatre, what fun it would have been to be there!!!And finally, if you have time stop in and see a picture perfect piece of history Chappell Hill. Still looks amazing with lots of original houses and some great shops.
Also, every Spring they have the Bluebonnet Festival which is really fun. You get to sample some great food and shop in some fabulous booths. On this day though it was quiet and peaceful. A perfect Spring Saturday!
