Inside Fredericksburgs' Lavender Cottage...



When life gets hectic I tend to go on mental "memory-cations" and think about my times away from the daily grind. One of my favorite places in the world is the little town of Fredericksburg,TX. It's a laid back German settlement that has turned into what I would call the B&B capital of Texas. The antiquing is a main draw too!

I've gone a few times  for weekend getaways. Once with the hubs, and once with my Mom. Both fun in their own special ways. Obviously the trip with mom included lots more antiquing and cute cottagy-ness. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing the old farmhouse style cottage where we stayed. It was called the Lavender Cottage. I can't find it anymore online. I'm hoping it is only changing hands or getting an update, and not closed completely.

"Rather Sweet" Bakery. A MUST.


More "Rather Sweet Bakery" footage. Yeah, we went more than once in the short weekend we were there. Best 3 pounds I ever gained...

My favorite pitstop in Fredericksburg? Without a doubt a place called Homestead & Friends.
Wish I had pics to show you. Wish I had pics for myself...the inspiration is amazing! There will be a next time.

Gotta run...

What a darling little cottage! I remember reading about that bakery in Country Living (or one of the many magazines I've subscribed to over the years). That dessert sure would be mighty tasty with my after dinner coffee!

I love Fredericksburg too! I have been several times and am always ready to go back. I WAS supposed to be going this weekend! I was planning to attend Luckenbach on Taps, an all-day clogging workshop! Since, I am just recovering from a kidney stone and hoping to return to work on Thursday, I can't very well ask for the day off on Friday to make the trip! O well, maybe next year!
Blessings,
Lorilee

Lovely B&B's there. I used to live in a remodeled Sunday house in Boerne and worked in Kerrville. Now we are near the Rio Grande Valley. A friend of mine has a B&B in Kerrville if you are interested. It's the Elm Cottage Sculpture and Meditation Garden on Bear Creek Rd. www.elmcottages.com
I enjoy your blog.

This looks like a lovely place. I'd love to go back and stay in a place like this. We did get to the bakery though!

Such a sweet blog. Yes, I love the simple days when I played in the dirt yard at Granny's, went through the cow pasture to get to swim in the pond, make frog houses in the sand, sat on Granny's cow hide chairs while she let me sop biscuits with cane syrup, and even went to the outdoor privy (not because we had to, but because we thought it was fun) Have I totally confused you:) Drop by sometime for a visit. I sure do enjoy visiting you.
