I started off on Friday having absolutely no plans for my weekend. I wound up only seeing the inside of my apartment when I got home to sleep! Saturday B, J and B's sister E decided to kidnap me on a trip into town. We started off browsing the antique shops in the Montrose area, which of course I loved! I wound up buying a small, worn stained glass window (been wanting one for a while), a cute little brass grasshopper that has taken up residence on my mantle, and a new AWESOME piece of artwork that I've been thinking about since I was down in that area last time. Not only was it still available (obviously a sign), but since it had been there for so long I was able to get a really great discount (always ask for one when you're buying art that hasn't seen quick turnover - you'll usually get a better price).
cafe that I went to on my last trip to the antique shops, where we shared a hummus and flatbread snack and had some beverages. After we walked the vintage stores for a while we moved on, only to immediately run into Anvil Bar and Refuge, a bar on my "Houston To-Do List". So we stopped off here for some fantastic drinks in a really great atmosphere. I'm definitely going to be going back there (the Pimms Cup was awesome!)
