A day of adventure with Mom

This poor little guy had lost an eye and ear to a bobcat!

A couple of weeks ago mom and I spent a day together having and adventure. We brainstormed several choices, and chose a visit to a local lavender farm. Mom suggested that the season was shorter there, and we should go before the flowers were gone. The farm is called Lavender Ridge Farm and it is in Gainesville, Texas. The farm was really lovely, they have a field of Lavender, obviously, as well as strawberries for picking. They also have a herd of super cute pygmy goats, two donkeys and three horses. It was nice to be surrounded by nature, and I had forgotten how much I loved the smell of horses. We picked a bunch of lavender to share, and I got a lavender bath bomb for a friend's birthday.

After the farm we headed into Gainesville's downtown square to visit Paige Davidson and her awesome shop. Paige is an talented painter, handbag maker, and all around awesome lady. Her eye for design is abundantly clear in her artful shop displays. Paige and her mom collaborate on a line of handbags made of vintage fabrics called Cahoots Handbags. They are all gorgeous, and I am a big fan of her paintings as well, especially the Airstream series.
