Happy holiday weekend, crafty compadres! I hope you all had a peaceful, stress-free and delicious Thanksgiving. Ours was just that, as we were fortunate enough to be able to escape to the Hill Country of Fredericksburg, Texas, with our close family friends. Although we only had to travel about an hour and a half away from Austin to get there, the small town charm and outlying rural ranches, made it feel like a world away from the city. Fredericksburg with it’s vineyards, bed & breakfasts and vista views, is a lovely getaway destination but one of my favorite things about our visits there, are all of the handmade finds that are tucked away in the many boutiques. Even the agency we stopped at to pick up the keys for our rental house, offered crocheted & embroidered pillows and fabric scrap coin purses! My favorite retail stops though, are Things in a Room (a hodgepodge of this and thats which includes a fantastic collection of fabrics, vintage trims, yarn, and embroidery supplies), and the gorgeously styled, Red (a house of “modern lines, vintage finds and custom designs”) — so this week, I thought I’d take you on a virtual tour of just some of the craftiness I came upon in these sweet, little shops. Enjoy!

I restrained from buying most of the gajillion different fabrics I wanted, but I couldn’t leave this one behind!
