Texas Inspiration

 Don't you just love it when amazing opportunities present themselves to you and you find yourself waking up in a town you have always dreamed of visiting.  Last year my husband's job took us to Austin and I just now found my camera card from that trip and I realized from the pictures that I pulled up just how much that visit had influenced me.    
 I fell in love with the color turquoise.  From just this visit alone my paint brush has made the happy transition from white and creams.  Although whites and creams are still a very popular color choice for many of the furniture finds that I have put in the shop, turquoise seems to fly out of the door these days. 
 This bed was amazing.  I don't think any colors speak of the West like turquoise and silver and rich earthy tans and browns.
 This shop, located in Fredricksburg TX,  was one of the finest examples of Texas style I have seen.
And this was one of my favorite Texas inspired pieces.  It was hard to say goodbye.  
How has Texas inspired you?

As a 6th generation Texas let's just say my roots run deep and my accent is here to stay.
You need to head on back down for the big shows starting next week. Girl...we got inspiration out the wazoo and it's all in cow pastures. I promise you up and down turquoise like you ain't never seen and bluebonnets like you'll never forget.

BTW...the Junk Gypsys new show on HGTV will be kicking off pretty soon. Amie and Jolie love them some blue.
