weekend update : lake house

this holiday weekend our good friends took us to their lake house for a little rest and relaxation....it was perfect.
their lake house is just outside of Marble Falls, Texas (which is just outside of Austin). we usually go up there to antique, play bingo, and do a whole lot of nothing

1.Love the retro charm of the country 2. Large metal bluebonnets 3.The tin Tarzan lunchbox that i regretfully left behind..i cried a little bit (ive been collecting tin lunchboxes for 14 years) 4. Funny autographed pic of Sigfried and Roy(sp?) 5. totally awesome indian chief hook-rug pillow (it smelled funny otherwise it would have come home with me). 6. awesome glassware sets all over the place...seriously it was hard to pass up 7. beautiful drawing/etching of a Lady. 8. BINGO!! dave won $95 bucks...i was this close to winning $700...damn. 9. our friends awesome dog...Bonnie...i love her mismatched eyes!

we went antiquing nearly all saturday afternoon.  i bought several vintage hankerchiefs for myself and my mom (yes...we actually use them) as well as a sweet daisy enamel pin and a vintage gold feather pin....but accidentally left them at the lake house so i dont have pics to show you....bummer.
we also ate several times (almost everyday) at our favorite place in Marble Falls
The Blue Bonnet Cafe
This place is famous for their pies.  I'm talking pies with giant meranges....total height of some are around 8" tall folks.  They also have slammin' omelets for breakfast....served with amazing hashbrowns and a piece of Texas toast the size of your head.
we tried the cherry pie this time....Dave's favorite is thier peanut butter pie
sorry....ill stop gushing....it was a great weekend.  cant wait til next time.
