I love doing commercial work that comes my way, especially when it's someone I know and like! Doug Boster Catering is a Dallas catering company whose food I've always enjoyed. It's fresh, nicely presented, and just plain good! Doug and crew have a new website that debuts soon, and they wanted some photos, both formal and fun, for it. We all had a great time!

Summer is hanging on here in Texas. This morning, when my friend, Susan, and I left for Waxahachie, it was already hot and humid. We were in dire need of a quick girls' getaway, and Waxahachie isn't too far south of here. As we pulled into town, we passed a new (to us) antique shop. I performed a u-turn to rival to best of them, and in seconds we were parked in the little parking lot in front of a sweet old house. Crooked Creek Farms is located at 510 West Main Street, and is only open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Look at this! Treats for the customers. Love me some Southern hospitality!
You'll notice the Wolf hound on their logo. Turns out the owner raises wolf hounds on a ranch outside of town. Fingers crossed for what would be an amazing photo opportunity in the near future!
Here's owner Shane with his Airedale pup, Gatsby. It was great to meet them both! Gatsby was particularly taken with Susan...
Wonder what an odd fellows building is?
The downtown buildings are quite distinctive, especially the courthouse on the square.
We stopped in at The Doves Nest for lunch and shopping. Fantastic on both counts!
Afterwards, we walked over to Old Town Village Antiques & Uniques, where I met manager Cheryle Williams out on the street checking out their new window display.
We finished our day at the Gingerbread Antique Mall, where we found a metal terrier whose resemblance to Gatsby was uncanny!
They also had a nice selection of Fiestaware.
Thanks for coming along on our Saturday adventure!
