I rarely have a Sunday off. I've been dying to get out of town so when someone at work wanted to swap days with me, I gladly accepted and immediately arranged with some friends to take a little day trip out to Lockhart, TX. James has been telling me about this Black's BBQ place he's been wanting to try out. Being the lover of antiques that I am, I looked up some local stores and their business hours so we could do a little browsing after lunch.
Beautiful Kari, waiting outside of Black's for the Canos to show up.
Meat as far as the eye could see. James got the brisket and sausage (which tasted like burnt plastic). I tried to keep things a bit lean so I got the turkey and of course some brisket. I always judge a BBQ place by their brisket. I'm a self proclaimed Bean Queen so I had to try both kinds. Just a thought: why aren't they called black eyed beans?

By now, you should know about my fascination with creepy things.
I loved this pitcher and water basin.
I've been watching a lot of American Horror Story and I'm quite certain we found Lockhart's very own Murder House next door... This is seriously the creepiest house I've ever seen. Look at this thing! WTF? Just by posting this picture, I'm sure that I've haunted my blog.
Brandon, Kari, James, Gabe and Megan. "Say hello, everyone!" And they were never seen again...
Hats, hats and more hats!
I'm becoming more and more obsessed with tea sets lately... More on that later.
Casting couch, 1953.
Vintage modelling photos. They're so charming.
One day, I shall have a telephone table.
Good day, Sir Rabbit. I say, good day!
Bye Lockhart! See ya later.
