The Cedar Chest and Hole In The Wall

While in Texas look at this cute little antique treasure we visited. The Cedar Chest is an old home that has been converted into an antique shop. Each.....


room is filled with wonderful goodies.The rooms sort of have a theme...there are just the coolest kitchen items and linens here and


this room is filled with lovely old china, depression glass, and wall art. There is even a room filled with boy things...tools etc. We all found a treasure or two and......


then piled in the cars and headed to the neatest place for lunch....



The Hole In The Wall. The food is delish!!! Everyone had something different. Carl had meat loaf and mashed potatoes and I know Mary had yummy taco soup, I had the best cheeseburger, but I've forgotten what everyone else had. Not only is the food wonderful the dining room is decorated with wonderful vintage advertising signs...this is a favorite lunch spot for our family and I know out next visit we'll be going there again.


More too come........hugs, Linda

It would take forever to get through that shop. My goodness, there is so much in each room.
It looked like you had a fun time and glad you like the Hole in The Wall, what a cute name.

Did you spend hours in that shop? I think you could look there 50 times and still see something you missed before. It is packed. Will you share your treasure(s) with us?

Hugs ~
