Southern Crush on the Road in Carrollton, TX

Carrollton, TX is a place that was super easy to find for me becuase I practically grew up there. Although, it has exploded into a bustling city since the days I spent there; it still stays grounded with it’s quaint little downtown square. It is rich in history and full of nostalgia with it’s original movie theater, train station and even an old grain elevator. Follow along and see what I mean…

Downtown Carrollton has a fun green space complete with its own grandstand or gazebo which is great for photo shoots. The four streets that line the square are peppered with fun shops, small businesses and even an original soda fountain.

My visit to Carrollton wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the Finishing Touch Antique Mall.  . It is full of booths and booths of antiques and collectibles.

Old spools make the best decor. You can literally decorate for any holiday or season with them on a table, in a basket or even in a dough bowl. I’m obsessed with the colors. So many to choose from…

These single sided graters are so unique to me. I’m putting on my thinking cap to dream up a fun way to decorate with them. Did you see my other grater DIY?
