was forced decided to take a writing break.
While in Texas we day tripped over to Austin. It is one cool city.
We hit only a few places but they were sublime chippy temples!
UNCOMMON OBJECTS (see link @ end of pg)
The store sign sports a rather large rabbit sitting atop it. We were greeted with display cases full of sparkling jewelry, bits and whatnot. Oh and the full size teaching skeleton hanging out to our right!
We spent 3 hours (I think that's our M.O. for stores we love) pouring over every item in there. Vintage clothing, religious ephemera, out-of-the-ordinary-things-your-mama-wouldn't-approve-of-you buying and more.

We sauntered down the block for lunch (3:00pm) because it was taking so long to ring up my purchases. GUERO'S Taco Stand is so yummy! I almost ordered a 'Texas' Margarita but realized where I was. It's just a plain ol' 'rita to them! Who knew?
Our last stop in SOCO (South Congress) was Allen Boots. Alas, the boot genies were working against us and we left bootless. I will buy those orange boots upon my return in the Fall. Lookout.
Austin is Chippy #5 collective. Oh BTW Lauri didn't propose to ANYONE in Austin.xo lulu
