We had a little mini-vacation down on Galveston Island, and found a few treasures.
First we came upon this bookstore —
Where I found some wonderful books –
After I bought them, I was ready to just sit in the hotel room and read them, and ignore any other vacation-type activities. But it is a good thing I didn’t, because the next day we went out to an architectural salvage store in a 1940s Sears building —
And right next door was a resale shop with some nice quilts.
So it is a good thing I didn’t hide in my room to read.
We also went down on the piers and out to the Seawall, and if you are interested, you can see the birds I saw there in my new blog, Little Wild Streak. I am going to keep writing here about textiles, but usually I go days without time to work on textile projects, and really, I don’t even buy something for my collection every week either(although lately I’ve been on a roll!), so too many days go by between posts. Whereas every day I see something interesting outdoors, and I think it is important to record and share those bits of nature. So I hope to see you there too!
