I love no destination drives! Today, Mr. B and I went on just such a drive. However, to be totally honest...I had a definite destination in mind for this drive...
This is a photo of the courthouse...I love Texas Courthouses...the character, the masonry work, the color of the stone...the majesty of it all!
We were walking around the town square, I was in sensory overload because I love town squares! I was busy taking photo after photo when I turned around to cross the street, I looked up and stopped dead in my tracks! I love everything about this exterior wall...the flow of the stone, the blue of the oblong window and the dome glass with the rusty stain on the stone work below. So I snapped away!
This is a collage of more sights from in and around the town square. The photo with the "Simple Pleasures" arrow is from a very special shop "Fleur de Lis"!
The top photo in this collage is a metal finial on a gate post at the Waggoner Mansion aka El Castile. The bottom photo is a carved wood headboard from "Fleur de Lis".
We had a limited amount of time to spend in Decatur and I just had to browse through every shop! So much fun and the people of Decatur are so kind. We plan to go back again soon! Real soon because I found lots of "treasures" just callin' my name!
