On our way back to Dallas, we stopped at the little town of West for some lunch/great pastry. A peppery sausage and cheese kolache, and a variety of fruit kolache made for some happy travelers! And so cheap! $1.00 a piece!
Before we continued on our journey to Dallas, we went into the town. Historical marker! You can bet we pulled over.
As we were walking back to the SUV, (we got a free upgrade from a compact car to a 4 door Explorer!), I spotted this cool door handle on the building.
Isn't it beautiful? So intricate. I immedately wanted a rubbing, but had no pencil nor paper. Crap!
My resourceful traveling companions came to the rescue. Rick rummaged through his bag and came up with paper, and my friend P found a Keno crayon in her camera bag! Perfect!
Rick held while I rubbed. (The paper! The paper!)
I have some old barn molding that I picked up at a farm auction for a buck. (A whole pile of wood for a buck! I love farm auctions!) I want to haul out the compound miter saw and make a frame for them. Angles and I may not get along, so I'll see how that goes.
Results of the dyeing session tomorrow!
