From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Trip to Waco, Texas

Howdy Ya'll --
For those of you that watch HGTV's show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines, you will love the series of posts I have for you. L.O.V.E.  For those of you that don't, these posts will have no meaning. Just sayin'. 
 I flew to Texas from Pennsylvania with some of my favorite fam. After several connections and a one hour and 38 minute car ride we arrived in Waco! The sun and heat greeted us with a stifling 96 degree hug. WHEW! 
Oh, but it was worth it, friends! Sooooo worth it!  
 I searched the internet and blogs prior to making this trip and many people have visited Magnolia Market + Garden. But I feel confident that the pictures you're about to see will not be seen anywhere else to date. Not only do I have pictures of Magnolia Market + Garden but I have pictures of the just opened Magnolia Flour and grounds. That's not all! We also visited Clint Harp's business and house and the Magnolia House. I have pictures of all this AND MORE! Get this: we also visited Chip and Joanna's house. YES! THEIR HOUSE!!! We also have pictures of the new house they just purchased! So grab yourself a cup of tea and sit back and relax. I have lots of pictures and posts ahead! 
Joanna did not miss any details in designing the Market + Garden! We parked about a two block walk away from the silos and were greeted by these beautiful trellises and green grassy turf as we neared the one-time cotton mill. I knew when I saw this that every detail would be pure eye candy.

Don't you just love this rusty goodness?! To the right of the first silo you catch a glimpse of the black umbrellas that fill Magnolia Flour's courtyard. It is so awe-inspiring and breathtaking. We'll get to that soon! 
I just loved this sight right before you enter the large black gates that usher you inside the grounds. 

 You can see the large barn doors that slide shut when the Market is closed. I just love their rustic presence on the building. 
 Everywhere you look inside the grounds Chip and Joanna have kept their customer's interests in mind. Just under the silos is a patio with at least six picnic tables. From the roof line comes a cool vapor of water to cool you off from the intense Texas sun. It was so refreshing. Throughout the whole place she has covered seating and lots of places to recline and get cold water. It's really well thought out! 
I hope you enjoyed this first look at the Magnolia Market my friends. There is way more to come plus the exclusive pictures of the Gaine's own farm house and barn. 
Enjoy your summer!
