Seadrift, TX is known for it's murals. I think they have almost 25 scattered throughout the town and for such a small town....that's a lot of cool art.Traveling down the main street, the huge bougainvillea is stunning and colorful.
First shopping stop is at this cute and beachy store named Morning Glory. Morning GLORY got it's name because the building was formerly a church. Since Tyra grew up in Seadrift, it's literally a place where EVERYONE knows your name. This store is owned by a former classmate (Janey) and she couldn't have made us feel more welcome.
Isn't this tricycle just the cutest thing?
The store owners love children but they had this cute little sign. Kinda makes a mother think twice before letting her kids run wild...lol!
Continuing my love of signs, I honed in on this funny version of Shabby Chic. And since the shop is part beachy.....there were lots of fun painted fish too.
Wouldn't it be nice to kick back on the porch with a custom painted folding chair? Click on picture for more detail.
This was one of my favorite rooms. I always love, love, love (do I sound like Teresa from Housewives of New Jersey ?) garden art and french inspired garden folly.
Another view of the garden room with lots and lots of pretties to look at.
A old armoire painted in funky beach colors would sure be fun in a kitchy beach house, don't you think?
As we made our purchases and headed out the door, we just knew we would be back. The bargains were too good, the staff uber friendly and this place just SPOKE to us. They even let me go in their work area in the back and I was in heaven....surrounded by paint and glue and things that just cried to be embellished and repurposed. I took a picture for myself but promised them I wouldn't share the place where "all the magic and transformation happens"!
Below is Janey and Tyra holding my favorite purchase of the day....you guessed it...another SIGN! Help me out all you French speakers....it says...."Life is Beautiful", doesn't it? No matter....I love it!
