Hello my dears! I hope all of you have had a productive yet relaxing week. Ours has been filled with all the joys, commotion and feasts that go along with entertaining house guests. As a change of pace from the old F-berg, we spent Tuesday in Austin haunting the vintage shops of South Congress.
One of my absolute favorite places is Austin can be found on this street. Equal parts museum, art gallery, antique market and purveyor of all things curious, Uncommon Objects has something to bewitch everyone.
The friendly folks behind the counter were kind enough to let me snap a few photos while we marveled at the wondrous objects from large to small, furry to glassy, endearing to disturbing. All credit for the ingeniously creative nature of these photos should go to the very talented proprietors and designers of Uncommon Objects. I merely had to point and shoot.
If you have the chance to visit Austin, this is one place I would not miss. Though I could take home half the store without so much as blinking, we settled on two beautiful stoppered blue glass bottles for me, and a vintage belt buckle (from Washington!) for Jacob.
It would seem that in Austin, there is never a lack of eye candy. Sometimes literally.
To finish out the day in style, we joined the crowd on the South Congress bridge to watch the bats put on their nightly show. Sadly I was unable to capture the swarm but with a little Googling, you can see what all the fuss is about.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
