Over the weekend I decided to explore Houston. I cruised up and down the streets from the Galleria area up around Montrose. Oh my goodness! I found sooo many cute boutiques and little shops. And I found a decent Half Price Books. When my hubby and I lived in Austin we would make it our Saturday ritual to stop by Half Price Books off Lamar and then head over to Phil's for the best burgers & sweet potato fries in town.
Well, I haven't found a good Half Price Books yet. Until this past weekend in Houston. I bought a book while I was there but didn't have a chance to read it until last night. It's called, Creole Thrift. It's awesome! I love Angele Parlange's decorating style. And she loves to thrift shop like me. She grew up on the Parlange plantation in Louisiana and she has a cute writing style. Not only is it a decorating book but a biography. Pralange Plantation is one of the oldest in the state of Louisiana. WOW, could you imagine growing up on a plantation? She's one lucky gal! Not only did I find a decent Half Price Books but I also found a cute clothing shop with all sorts of cute funky but fun clothing. I love this jacket.
