Artist or Big Beaver?

While visiting my husband’s sister and her husband in Willis, Texas, we all drove around to see some of the sights in their neighborhood. They came to a stop in front of a vacant lot full of nothing but trees (and these cool tree sculptures). They told us the man...

Purple Trees in Texas?

A couple of weeks ago, we went to visit my sister and her husband out on their weekend farm in Groveton, Texas. And while we were on the 4-wheelers bouncing across the acreage, I noticed lots of trees on adjoining properties with purple paint smeared on their bark....

Are You a Picker, too?

Typically a store’s sign will let you know what type of store it is, and in turn, make you want to visit. So when I saw this sign, “Pickers Paradise,” I was intrigued as to what type of pickers shopped there. If you think about it, there are hundreds of types of...

Girlfriends Go Bowling

The girlfriends (Myra, Lisa, Claudia, Mary Lynn, me, and my Dreamy “D”), went bowling last week. We headed out to one of the bowling alleys here in Humble – MaxBowl on Wilson Road. It’s actually the first time I’ve ever bowled (even though hubby used to bowl in a...

It’s definitely a sign!

My husband and I were driving down Highway 59 (past New Caney, Texas) the other day and I began to notice several signs along the way that truly showcased what the business was about. So I thought I’d take a picture or two and share with you my findings. The one above...

Christmas in Holliday

What is Christmas without a Holliday? With Christmas and New Year's right around the corner, I couldn't forget about some of the small Texas towns that represent such festivities. So, for the holidays, why not visit Holliday, Texas? Located in northern Archer County,...

No Trees in Texas?

Yep, that's right... there is actually a town named Notrees, Texas - zip code 79759. It's located on Highway 302 and is about 20 miles northwest of Odessa. You know how I love digging around into how small Texas towns got their "unusual" names, and Notrees, Texas is...

What’s in a Name?

So, what's really in a name? Well apparently 2 “bb’s” and a “hill.” Or at least it seems to be in the name of this street! We saw this sign while driving down 190, just a little East of Livingston. “Knobbhill” or “Knob Hill” (whichever way it is spelled) is right...

Building Made of Ivy

Still standing after all these years? As you can tell by the picture, this old farm building is still standing strong with a little help from all the ivy. This abandoned barn is off of Highway 90 between Devers and Nome, Texas. The story goes that it was originally a...

Texas Size Lawn Art

While we were out driving around, we came across this large "Statue of Liberty" lawn art in the front yard. It's a residential home that is located along Highway 190 just East of Livingston (very close to the Indian Reservation). Sure, sure, it's not as large as the...
