FMM - More Magnolia

I'll have part 2 of our Magnolia trip up on Monday; in the meantime, here's a few more pictures that I couldn't squeeze in to either post:
Yes we took the picture but no I didn't post it on Instagram.  If I had, it would have been 1,750 miles.  Or 89 miles for me.  Not quite as impressive, ha!
 
This vintage food truck was adorable!  They weren't selling ice cream on the day we were there, but that's OK; it was so hot that the truck probably would have been swarmed with customers and I wouldn't have gotten a clear picture.
How cute is this??  Gingerbread, cut into design, baked, and then iced into wood embroidery hoops?  It almost looks like something I could do.  Or rather, something I'd attempt, end up with wonky-shaped houses and trees, and have everything crack as I tried to pull it together.  But still, see what I mean about decorating ideas from Magnolia?  Love it.

Speaking of Magnolia, they have a line at Target now, and it debuted while Barbara was still here, so naturally we had to go check it out.  While there were a lot of tempting items, the one thing that had us both trying to figure out how we could justify buying it?  Was a dollhouse.  Oh, it was CUTE!  Sadly, neither of us have that kind of disposable income, to just buy a dollhouse because WE want it:
Hey Santa...?

In lieu of buying the dollhouse, I did the next best thing:
OK, these are pretty cute.  And I do have a thing for salt and pepper shakers.

Have I mentioned how tiny our airport is?  Two gates.  Let's just say you don't have to get there early to go through security, which is how Barbara ended up in line a mere hour before her flight.  Was she going to make it through in time??  I think so:
Sure, we may only have six flights a day, but what we lose in quantity, we make up in convenience.

Have a great weekend!

  1. That airport reminds me of the Panama City Beach airport! It has only 5 or 6 gates!

    1. Once you get used to it, it's a nice change from the hustle of a bigger airport.

  2. That airport photo is so funny. When our airport here used to have commercial flights, there was only 1 gate. And the person who checked you in also loaded the luggage and used those flashlight things to park the planes. Kind of freaky until you got used to it haha.

    1. It's the same here - if you get there too early to check in, the counter agents are missing because they are loading the luggage! So funny, so different from most travel experiences.

  4. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I have officially added "visit Magnolia" on my to do list. It's not that far and I'd absolutely love it.
