Late Afternoon Outing

Texas flag hanging out on the sidewalk in downtown Fredericksburg Texas.

We drove to Fredericksburg yesterday late afternoon on a whim. I love these kinds of trips. Last minute outings taken on a whim without any planning. Come to think of it we did not tell anyone we were going either. Hmmmm not sure that is a good idea now. Oh well it was Friday afternoon, the start of a 3 day weekend and we had nothing to do, so why not?

Fredericksburg Texas is a small town turned tourist town in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
It is one of the best shopping destinations around for antiques,art,decorations, or anything off the wall different. We decided to go because it is also home to some winery's. We have driven to some winery's in the hill country before but we've never been to the ones on main street in downtown Ferdericksburg.
As it turned out it was their First Friday Art Walk. Each first Friday of the month the galleries stay open late and feature different artist.
At the gallery "Artisan at Rocky Hill" Susan Germond a mosaic artist was showing some of her wonderful art. I'm a little partial to mosaic art. I've done numerous pieces and sold a few as well.
I had to buy her book and take a picture of some of her work.
Now I'm all goosey about mosaics. I have boxes of old china and found pieces stashed in my garage just waiting for me to rummage through and break.

I had to buy her book...

This the mosaic artist Susan Germond behind some of her beautiful art. I love the dress form. The chair is pretty fabulous also.
