Waxahachie Wonder

Blue skies and high 80s last Saturday at the Texas Country Reporter Festival in Waxahachie, Texas.
Only an hour drive to a bustling town. The center of it all is the Ellis County Courthouse (pictured above) - a fine example of gingerbread architecture. The whole town square is well maintained with plenty of cutesy shops and good restaurants. We ate lunch at the Dove's Nest - a tea room in an antique store.

It was an easy fun jaunt, a chance to stretch the legs, and mix and mingle among arts and crafts (and a fine selection of homemade jams and jellies)

Venture out into your neck of the woods - you might be surprised at what you find.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Not sure I'd find much, especially anything that looked like that.

  2. Hi Joanne - what an interesting place ... and then with a gentle wander around amongst the arts and crafts, with delicious home-made jams and jellies - can't be bad! Cheers Hilary

  3. Sounds like a fun place to visit. I always enjoy checking things out like this.


    1. It is a neat little town. The festival was an added bonus

  4. Looks like a really nice place! I like to venture out around here too. My friends who have lived here their whole lives have told me they never knew half the stuff existed if it wasn't for my pictures.

  5. I love homemade jams and jellies! Those skies are not so bad either :) sounds like a great place to be

  6. You had me at cutesy shops and good restaurants. Sounds like a fun place to spend the day. :)
