Day Trip to Salado

Before we moved, we took a day trip to Salado, Texas. It's a small town full of charming shops, friendly locals and quaint cafes. I love wandering through the shops, looking for ideas for our home. I'd been wanting to head to Salado all spring, so my sweet hubby came along for a day the weekend before my birthday.

We had lunch at a cafe in Salado Square, and enjoyed coffee from the The Strawberry Patch gourmet specialty shop while we looked through the shops. We LOVE the Salado blend and bought a bag of fresh ground decaf to take home. (You can order their coffee online and it's fabulous!)

The huge rose bushes were bursting with beautiful blooms along the paths to the bridge.

My favorite shop of the day was Charlotte's. Her collection of home decor fit my style to a T. Don't miss Charlotte's if you stop in Salado...the store is tucked down a side street.

Another great shop is Horsefeathers. The house itself is a vintage treasure with beautiful moldings and a charming kitchen, but it is chock full of treasures for your home.
We had a fun day despite the rain. If you ever find yourself traveling through central Texas, Salado is a delightful stop for some coffee, antiques and local charm!
