Denton, Texas

We had a little weekend outing. We drove to Denton, Texas, which is about 30 minutes from our home, and checked out thrift stores and did a few errands and went out to lunch.
The courthouse in the square is pretty spectacular. There are many courthouse squares in Texas-I love to take pictures of them.
This is the old bank-I think it's empty now.
Antique store-this used to be a hardware store-up until about 4 or 5 years ago. It was still owned by the original family!
After all that we had to make a stop at Mr. Frosty for a shake. It's hot out there! Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. So did you find anything? Have you been to Gainsville shopping yet? First Monday is coming up..are you going to go?

  2. my grandparents lived in denton long ago. thanks for sharing the photos!

  3. Denton sure looks like a great town to visit, with great old buildings and vintage charm!

  4. This is funny but my name is Leslie and I live on almost the exact same street name as your blog. That is coincidence enough but I also went to college in Denton. Isn't that strange?! (Love your header, especially the clock.)

  5. My hubby has a Lionelville "Mr. Frosty" plastic store or maybe it is a Plasticville for his train set scenery. The "F" is broken off so we laugh over that..."Mr. rosty". But to tell you the truth I didn't know that there were "Mr. Frosty" stores? I just thought it was a cute name for an ice cream store. That store in Denton looks just like he plastic toy one!
