And we were surprised at how... Small the store is. Like, 250 square feet small. So, for those who can't easily road trip to Waco, TX fear not! The online store is where it's at. We did spend the whole day in the small city, so we managed to hit up many shops all over the Bosque Blvd/Downtown area.
Alas, here are my Top Five finds and moments from our trip:
1) This adorable necklace was the first thing I bought, even though I was on the hunt for home goods. Oops.

2) We went to the
He stopped screaming the second we got out of that haunted basement. He got happy the second we left the property. Something aint right there. Ghosts, I'm telling you!
3) I got these super cute dish towels! All of ours magically disappeared after we moved. Time for new ones.

4) We hit up the one art gallery downtown (and possibly in all of Waco). It was... Ummmm. Well. Let's just say Baylor University doesn't have a robust art department, or they're all the rejects from FIT, SCAD, or (enter city/state) College of Art and Design - just about every other art school, anywhere.
As a SCAD Master's graduate, I judge art harshly. There, I said it. #sorrynotsorry
5) Look at this badass painting I got! Our new dining room is Texas-themed. It sounds weird and this painting is a bit bold, but I can't wait to share pics when it's all done. It's will look so rad with the burnt orange walls and cast-iron Texas Star I have planned for the walls. Intrigued yet in how I'll pull this off? Me too. I just hate beige walls and boring spaces.

We had a great day trip in Waco! We wish we could have met Chip and Jojo Gaines... But they're probably pretty busy being famous HGTV stars. Or designing houses. Or both. So it's cool - I still love them.
Linking up with Amanda, Karli, Friday Five ladies, Tara and H54F!
