Thursday Favorite Things: Caddo Lake

If you watched True blood you may recognize this place from the opening.  This is Caddo Lake, the Texas side. I know, I know, it looks like Louisiana but a big, huge chunk of this lake is actually Texas water and apparently this house was once a speak easy during prohibition. 

How amazing is that hand made hutch? I wanted it but have no where for its. 
What I love about this part of Texas is how amazingly friendly the people are. We went there last year and met a great guide (ask for Chaz) and we met Karen at Johnson's Ranch at Caddo Lake. They are the greatest!  Helpful, kind, and they always have a smile.  
(It rained a lot so Johnson's Ranch was wet) 

If you come on the 1st or 3rd weekend the trade store is open in Uncertain, Tx and you may find a treasure.   You can always check out Jefferson.   We did but aside from some amazing fudge, I didn't find anything there I couldn't live without or talk myself out of the crazy antique mall prices.  It's not cheap buying antiques and I don't want to have to work on a piece I spent hundreds of dollars on to fix them. :-) 

Aren't these tree amazing.  We got home Wednesday afternoon and I sneaked a nap in...and dreamt about these bad boys! 
These sweet things just sat there taking a nap and ignoring use

This is the place I want t to retire.  So beautiful!

Wow. That looks like a great place to relax! And it's almost a little spooky with that weather!

It is kind of spooky! I was just thinking about that, how eerie it could be. The people make it so worth it!
