holiday wish list (3)


December 10, 2014

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite items to gift and receive this holiday season! Between my husband and two kids, I always try to put a little thought and creativity behind gift giving. Year after year it can be tough, so I’ve put together a medley of ideas for all ages! Who wouldn’t want a bottle of my favorite Casa Dragones Tequila as a stocking stuffer?! Enjoy!

Texas travels have been numerous in the news lately…most of the places being covered are ones you know; Dallas, Austin, and Marfa. But, the great thing about Texas is finding those hidden gems – Waxahachie being the perfect example!


A couple of months ago, we were driving to our family ranch in Italy, TX and stopped for Bar-B-Que in Waxahachie. On a whim, I went to check out the historic town square and limestone courthouse. In its heyday, Waxahachie was a hub of activity dotted with grand Victorian style homes and ‘Gingerbread’ inspired houses. Today you will find a “junk in the trunk” flea market, a Ferris wheel, a Hindenburg blimp, and my favorite spot, The Webb Gallery.


Truly, this is a place to behold. The owners, Julie & Bruce Webb, have long ferreted out some amazing “outsider” art from funky, yet talented Texans. I continue to make several trips back to add to my ever-growing collection of Carl Block face jugs, Camp Bosworth hand carved, oversized Tequila bottles, and more.


If you’re going to take a trip to Texas, make sure to stop here. I can’t get enough!
