I Think it's Time for Another Visit....

Have you ever been to the LBJ ranch in Stonewall, TX which is right outside of Fredericksburg? What a wonderful place to learn about our 36th President of the United States. His ranch invites us to witness his childhood home, his little old school house, and even the Texas White House where LBJ and Lady Bird lived until their passing. You may also see his grave too. It's all so very interesting and personal! But what I love the most is the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm. I don't even need to explain...just check out the pictures!

Whatever they eat on the farm comes from the farm!
From veggies to bacon it all comes from their hard work.
I'm in love with the different material used to show growth of the family.
The textures reveal a story.

This pie cooling/dish drying window opens into the dog trot. I would like to use this in a design one day, where you could display your dishes or cool a pie!

  1. LBJ Ranch is definitely one of my top 5 places to visit. Alot of history and pride has been put into this ranch.
