McKinney Again

I snuck off by myself on Friday,
and spent the whole blissful day
in McKinney Texas.

Those black chalkboard walls in the
photo above are in one of my favorite
stores...Patina Green

Don't laugh at my picture... I had to
stand sideways to get that picture of
their sign for you.

They have a lovely eating area in
front of their store/café, and people
were sitting in front of the sign.

Due to my "expert" photography skills,
I was able to get a picture of the front of
the store and a reflection of the seating
area too...not bad, right?

They grow a few herbs and veggies in the
flower box too. Kind of kicky. You might
even say downright bohemian for Texas.

I actually had a mission that day.
I was looking for advice...
It involves this old pub table.

I hope to have it finished soon and will be
back to tell you about it.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to talk Wild Bill into
building me a planting box like Patina Green's.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What fun...looking forward to seeing what you do with the pub table!

  2. good luck with Wild Bill, and your table.

  4. Get away in another town for a day. How fun. I love outdoor cafe's. I wonder what you are going to do with the pub table. Hmm. Love your sideways photo.
