I Just Have to Brag One More Time...........enid and design* sponge

Lara and Tim Bobo's kitchen

I know there are creative people everywhere, but I swear, they just grow like weeds in Fredericksburg, Texas! Talented Lara Bobo, whose home I featured here , ( her kitchen shown above) and who has the wonderfully hip and fresh shop, enid, recently penned a guide to our town and it was featured on the popular blog design* sponge today! Between Callie Jenschke from yesterday's post,  and Lara Collins Bobo, I feel so proud of both of them. These  enterprising young Texans are going to continue to impress the design world, of that I am sure.

It is a great guide, full of the best shops, restaurants, and sights to see.  Check it out here. Lara did a fabulous job of capturing all the great spots in our town.

The first place I plan to visit, (after I finish the antique show this weekend) is enid's new location on East Main Street.

 Lara started her shop in a small space on the west end of town. Her original shop was loaded with charm and great modern as well as vintage items.  I'll bet her move has to do with expansion and the heavy tourist traffic that we get on the more central part of Main Street.  Spring is a huge season for visitors here with bluebonnets and peaches galore, and the shopping on Main Street is always fun. 

If you want to get away for the weekend, or want a great destination for a wedding, Fredericksburg is the perfect spot. 

Come see us, and meanwhile, check out Lara's guide on to Fredericksburg on design*sponge!!
