A day in Salado Texas

My husband took me to Salado TX for the day yesterday.  It was his Valentine's Day gift to us.  We left early and spent the day walking down Main Street and visiting the shops.  I loved how small the town felt and how it seemed that everyone knew eachother.  The stores were just darling.  I came across some cute items.  Look at the peacocks that were displayed outside The Howling Wolf.

My husband loved the juke box they had in the store.

The Coyote Glass Gallery had a large heart displayed outside.

Do you see the glass art displayed in front of the store?

So we decided to have our picture taken in front of it.

The sun is in our face.  It's the only picture of the two of us.

My most favorite store in Salado was the Garden Sprits.  The gentleman in the store made the aprons himself and they also make most of the soaps themselves.  I was in love.  I took my time looking at all the little details.  They sell aprons, dish towels, quilts, hats and soaps to name a few.  I bought this fabric and this darling bird.

In front of the apron is a butterfly mobile.  Darling!
If you live in or around Austin, you should take the time to visit Salado.  I enjoyed our day together.  Thank you for the day Michael!
