K is for KNICKKNACKS
Really! It can be spelled with K's!!
Definition: (noun) a small trivial article intended for ornamentation
So if you are a reader of this Blog you KNOW I have some Knickknack love! I enjoy using different objects for decorations. I also believe in change! Change of seasons, holidays or just because I'm tired of how things look. I do not display all my knickknacks at one time: a) I have too many and b) too much 'eye candy' spoil the ability to enjoy the knickknacks.
I am also away from home and visiting my Mom in Texas. I have pre-planned many posts and have also filled in with thrifting I have done here and on the road. Today however, I am going a different route. Today I took a trip with Mom's AARP group to visit
Stagecoach Inn in Chappell Hill, Texas
To travelers in 1850 this Inn was a comfortable and luxurious overnight stop on the way to Austin. Two early stage coach lines used the Inn as a stop on the Houston to Austin and Houston to Waco roads. The Inn along with the Weems House and Coach House are located on the original three acre lot drawn up by the towns founder and builder of the Inn.
Now the Inn is the residence of Eileen and Steve Evans. Eileen is a long time dealer in fine antiques, and Steve is a retired Air Force pilot who now is part of the antique business as well. Decorated in authentic and reproduction antiques this is a charming look into this period of history. I enjoyed my visit and hope you will enjoy looking at Knickknacks from the 1800's!
