Every other Friday, my hubby (Floyd) gets the day off. We use this special day as our “date day” and we go off to explore the city, watch a movie, or do something fun and different. This past Friday we went to a wonderful little town just north of San Antonio. It’s called Bourne (pronounced burn-ee) and was founded in the late 1800’s.

Oh My Goodness! As soon as we turned on to Main St. we fell in love with the place! The street was lined with antique shops, boutiques, yummy places to eat and you should see the wonderful old architecture of the homes and buildings. Victorian cottage galore!!! We immediately began day-dreaming and planning on buying property there while we were having lunch. We hadn’t even seen the rest of the town yet.

We had so much fun walking through a lot of the shops. We’re going back again soon, so that we can see ALL of the shops, the parks and the rest of the town. These are pictures of what I purchased that day. I got GREAT deals on all my little treasures. But my favorite is the Scottie dog guest towel. How cute is that? The needlework is beautiful and perfect. And of course, I love the theme! I’m not sure if I’ll be selling this one or keeping it. I may do both; Enjoy it for a while, then sell it at a later date. We’ll see…

Becky is going to have to fight me all the way across The Pond for that cute hand towel! I just love scotty dogs embroidered on linens and have a few, but this one with a squirrel is something I've never seen - just delightful.
