  1. Great Photo Postcards – thanks for sharing! Have a Great Day!

  2. I’ve never been to Texas so I’m enjoying these posts very much. The brickwork above the Bluebonnet Treasures shop is gorgeous.

    • Thanks, Paula. The photos don’t really do those great old buildings justice. So many of them have spectacularly fancy brickwork. Makes me want to sell everything and move upstairs in one of them. Perhaps we could open a bakery or cafe downstairs. Sounds ideal.

  3. What a sweet looking town. I just adore the old brick corner buildings with a cupola. Those rounded windows just scream for a window seat.

    I am so in love with the architecture in Yoakum! I can’t decide if I’m more in love with the overall shape of the structures or the detailing. Can you imagine the sort of planning that took place when they were building the town up?

    p.s. The corner of Loft street? DYING.

    • For me, it’s the detailing. The buildings are all lovely, but that detail in the brick just knocks my socks off. That building at the corner of Loft Street is my favorite, too. I think it’s that small chain-link effect of the white brick and the tile insets. This is such a cool little town.
