Finds, Friends, and Fun in Malakoff

Malakoff Texas is about a hour from me, so when my friend Lilly announced her store opening this weekend, I knew I'd be going, See post below. Malakoff is a small town, that is turning into quite the Antiques Destination. If you are ever on Hwy 31 going through Malakoff, be sure to stop by the stores in town as well as the ones on 31. There are lots of goodies to be found.
First stop, Curious Goods run by Donna & Rhonda. Teresa Cano was already there.

It was hugs all around

Lots of Lovely and creative displays

Donna (right) is giving Teresa directions to the various shops. They are almost all within walking distance. Doesn't Teresa have a pretty smile.

Then it was time to go over to Lilly's place, Junk Palace

She had a great spread of munchies for us.

And Great displays throughout the store

I decide to take a picture of Teresa taking a picture. Since we always see her wonderful pictures and never see her. Pop over to her blog to see many more pics of the day.

I hit several other places in town, had lunch hit another store and then headed home.
It was a fun morning, Finding great junk, and meeting many many many bloggers and lurkers. It was great to see each and every one of you.
here are my finds.

I have a fun project in mind for the styrofoam dress form. It's on a really cool stand

I got this lovely light fixture at Lilly's. I love the ceramic flowers and crystals

The windmill blades below are my favorite find.

I hung them in my Family Room.

Remember that card display rack I got in Louisiana last weekend. I'm using it to display family photo's in my family room as well.

I love old rusty stuff.
Hope you enjoyed your trip to Malakoff. I've got lots more pictures, and ideas to share in the days and weeks to come. Curious goods, had some great projects for me to share. Thanks to everyone who was so welcoming. I wish all of you the best in Malakoff
