I love old signs, and even though these were not in my budget....I just had to stop. Below are some of the cute things I discovered!
Isn't this store front with the baby pumpkins just the cutest thing!?!? The store wasn't opened yet but looked very promising!
The store is called Texas Trash and Treasures! Carmine's only about an hour and 1/2 from my house, so I need to pop up again sometime soon and check this store out! Double click on the picture to see the street sign.....it's a very German Community! You can get awesome sausages and kolaches in this area. mmmmm...mmmmm...mmmmmm!
Next, we stumbled upon a precious store named Emily & Co. The store is behind the homeowners beautiful home pictured below. They even have a little Lawn Jockey (see him in the bottom right?)
This is the back yard of the big white house and side yard to Emily & Co. And since I LOVE Coca-Cola signs...I was particularly drawn to this part of the yard.
It seemed that everywhere I turned, something had been turned into a cute planter. Here's a old washer turned planter!
The lettering on this window was just stenciled on with gold paint, but it gave it such a special look, don't you think?
But WAIT...there was something I REALLY wanted but heeded to my budget and didn't get! I HEART that Coca-Cola Cooler.....it was in great shape and a really good price, but I was behaving....wahhhh....being good is BORING! I STILL am wishing I had that cooler!
And here's a beautiful door......if you've read my blog for long you'll know I LOVE doors, windows and Coca-Cola.....I hit the jackpot on this adventure in Carmine! But again....all looking and no buying!
Another clever idea for an old wash tub.....fill it with bright sunflowers and hang a cute Halloween sign on the front! BOO!
And to finish off the Carmine tour, I wish I could tell you we drove away in the Red Truck....but sadly we didn't. I could just imagine tooling around the country road in this prize possession and traveling in style! And you KNOW....I would fill up the truck bed with all SORTS of fun treasures. :) Thanks for coming by.........and visiting Carmine with me! It was fun to hang out with you.
