How about we take a field trip today?
In my dreams I live here...
In a little village just like this.
This little Western village is called Trail Dust Town and is located in Tucson, Arizona.
For more into, click here.
It's a place I have been going to since I was a little girl.
It's home to some really popular fun restaurants that people flock to like mad.
This morning I found myself there by accident really, as it's far from home.
In fact, I drove right past on my way to a shop.
Then I thought, oh I haven't been there in ages, so I turned around and went back.
It was morning and I was the only person there.
I had the most wonderfully fabulous and inspiring time.
All alone, just looking around.
It was ahhmazing.
I took some phone pics to share, so hop on in and let's go...
Nothing like a storybook setting for a proper dose of everything inspiration.
Fills all sorts of inspiration vaults for certain.
I'd love to live upstairs and run the magic shop.
I had forgotten how cute and well kept this place is.
At night with all the people around it has an amusement park feel.
But alone early in the morning it felt perfectly magical really.
Of course I adoooored the apothecary shop.
I have a tiny little village in my garden and this visit has me swirling with ideas.
I just love the signs and the door.
All sorts of goodies in the windows too.
You can pan for gold...
Or peek in covered wagons.
Of course I peeked in :-)
The general store is chock full of fun things to buy.
Sweets and treats a plenty.
I looove these mechanical horses.
When I was a kid I had to always ride them.
Remember they had them outside of supermarkets and such?
Now I never see them, do you?
I'd looove to own one of these cigar guys.
The colors and vibe are wonderful all around, wouldn't you say?
There's still much more to see than what I took snaps of.
The uber popular steak house is called Pinnacle Peak.
If you wear a tie they cut it off after making a loud scandal about the whole thing.
I've been there so many times over the last 30 years or more, I've lost count.
My parents used to always take us there as kidlets.
As a grown girl, my heart was particularly drawn to this urn.
How I would love to have that in my own garden.
What a lovely little visit I had.
Hope you enjoyed a peek in.
It's been ages since we did something like this on the blog, hasn't it?
Maybe we need lots more field trips.
Me thinks, yes, yes indeed.
So there you have it, Trail Dust town.
