Ragamuffin Gal

".. from my ragged heart to yours"

~**my most favorite things Monday~*


my "7" most favorite things
about
our Dallas trip


eating 3 times at my favorite French cafe




trying on clothes at a fun resale shop





walking along the Los Collinas canal once again


visiting part of our old neighborhood (lower Greenville)





lodging at a loft hotel








I discovered and read this book



and loved Amanda's ideas
on using creativity around
your home!

when I got home
this sweet little package
was waiting for
me




from Cystal's  shop
I just love this little carnival girl
with her balloon and cotton candy.

hoping your week is blessed with lots of
wonderful moments!

Hi, Katie,
Looks like a wonderful time for all in Dallas. I love La Madeleine. The closest one to me is Austin. My niece has been making several trips to Austin here lately and has been kind enough to bring me a pastry for my morning coffee each time. Enjoy your evening, sweet friend. Sending love and hugs to you~ Vicki p.s. I, too, love that sweet girl with her cotton candy and balloon, very charming!!

Hello Katie,

Your little girl is a cutie!

What a happy post! It was great fun seeing all your wonderful photos. Were they all taken in the Dallas area? (I think that's our closest "big" city---about 7 hours from where we live). I've never been, but hubby had visited many times as a child. Would love to visit, especially after seeing this---those cinnamon rolls alone would be worth the trip (that French restaurant wasn't looking too shabby either)!
