Jefferson Express

Enjoyed a weekend in olden Jefferson, TX.  Had to capture these images for Hubby who is an avid train enthusiast.
It was on the wall of the local BBQ place in town where you get your pulled pork sandwich with a side of fried okra or sweet potato fries. :) ..Yes, I did!!
I had my buddy take a pic down this lane in town of all the discarded doors, windows, railing that have been salvaged off of nearby homes or businesses in town.   Why do I think this kinda stuff is cool...I don't know but I do.  Remember what I did with MIL's olden window for her front entry?  That railing could be a window or Master Bedroom pedament and the old doors could make a great teenager's headboard.  Awwww, just love Vintage Thingies.

Colorado Lady is hosting Vintage Thingy Thursday, let's go see what has been found by others.



  1. Well you certainly picked the right place this time. You were down near my old stomping grounds. I lived in Atlanta, Texas near there. My sister and I was just through there and Jefferson a couple of weeks ago.
