Weekend in Wimberley

   Last weekend, I surprised James with a weekend getaway to an adorable cottage in Wimberley, TX. Just a little over an hour southwest of Austin. I found the Wild Plum Cottage on Airbnb. It was exactly what I was looking for. Peace and quiet in a new place. We didn't take many photos of the property. I honestly didn't know if that would be ok with the owner so I'll mix some of the ones James took with the owner's pics from the website. We got there around 5pm and then went back into town for dinner and drinks. 
She left us a melon from her garden in the fridge for us to enjoy. 
Charming lil chickens. :)
   Luckily for us, Wimberley has a Market Days every first Saturday of the month (I heard about it from a corworker). It was a lot bigger than I expected. Huge! We walked around for hours in a maze of makeshift shops. I just love doing things like this. I didn't buy anything besides iced tea (Sweet Leaf and concentrated Moonshine Iced Tea). It was extremely hot that day. I'm surprised we lasted as long as we did. I can't wait to go back when it's a little cooler outside. :) My mom would love this place! Taylor too. :)
I LOVE telephone tables!  I told James I wanted one and he was like "A cell phone table?" 
I saw a lot of floating chairs. 
I don't what I was thinking wearing boots. I walked back to the car to change into flats. It was so hot!
Did I ever mention my love for creepy baby things? 

I was captivated by these mannequin legs. Aren't they amazing!? I'm still very very tempted to buy them. They're bad ass! This was my favorite shop by far. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me. The artist ran out of business cards but wrote her info on a piece of paper for me. I'll have to look for that when I get home later.  Those legs will be mine! Her name is Lisa Grant. Here's her Facebook page. :)
 I don't like Jesus freaks but I do enjoy their paraphernalia.
We were in a (different) shop and encountered some Biblical verbal abuse. One minute I'm looking at tea sets, the next I overhear this couple talking very loudly to the shop owner. (To her husband) "Oh what's your favorite book?" "The Book of John" (to the shop owner)"Oh yes! The Book of John! You need to read that-have you been saved?!" The poor owner looked so uncomfortable. James said "Jesus, let's get the hell out of here" and then pulled me out of the shop. LOL!
Boston terrier. Reminded me of Ollie. 
"schrooms"



 I told James this reminded me of Albert Fish and he said it was Don Quixote. Is there some special gene that makes me say Albert Fish?
 This was the creepiest stand of all. It boasted "REAL FUR!" That's a lot of skinned animals....
 Yikes...
