Free Sweet Tea Printable

This free sweet tea printable is all about that house wine of the south, y'all! 
And, of course, it must be served in a mason jar. Of course.

I have been on the biggest tea kick, lately, y'all. I found a sweet tea that I can actually have on my eating plan and I just can't quit it. It's delicious and is just like the tea I grew up on (minus the four-piece Tupperware pitcher my mom kept our iced tea stored in). Grab this pretty watercolor and mason jar free sweet tea printable below...it's totally calorie-free, y'all!

Top Five Junk and Antique Shops in Central Texas

It's road trip, season, y'all! My favorite kind of road trip is the kind where I come home with a truck load full of JUNK (honestly, is there any other kind of road trip?). I often get asked my favorite junkin' and antiquing spots. I have five (give or take) in the central Texas area that I hit regularly...because they are absolutely fantastic and well-stocked. So, if you're heading southbound on 35 (just like Pat Green, wink), veer off a little before Austin and check out my favorite shops.

Top Five Junk and Antique Shops in Central Texas | These five hidden gems are where it's at for central Texas junkers! From Burnet to Belton to Waco...you don't want to miss these shops!
While there are several BIG shops that are very well known, some of the places I'm lettin' you in on today are hidden gems. I am more of a grittier junker. I do love the big ol' silos in Waco that everyone flocks to this area to see...but y'all, it's not true junk. It's new junk. And I want original beat-up, been-through-the-wringer, honest-to-goodness, 100-year-old junk-junk. And I know so many of you are like me, so buckle up, y'all...it's time for a junkin' road trip.

Free Scripture Printable

This Free Scripture Printable is the perfect piece of inspirational art for your decor.
Psalm 55:22 is a verse that I need in my life often...pretty much daily, y'all.

Free Scripture Printable of Psalm 55:22
I've done a freebie every Friday here on the blog for the last six and a half years. This week, I somehow let it slide to the very last minute. I usually have these scheduled weeks in advance, but I've taken more time off this summer. I, literally, sat down last night and wondered what I'd put together. And sometimes...the best designs can come out of complete procrastination. I'm really happy with this one...both in its design and for the actual scripture. Grab your free 8x10 below.
