Magnolia Market Silos


We live about an hour and a half from Waco, Texas.  Not too far, but close enough that when friends come to town we can visit The Magnolia Market Silos.


 In the last month I’ve gotten to go twice!


The first time was on a Friday.


 It was beautiful.






And very, very busy.  I didn’t consider buying anything because there were 50+ people lined up at the registers.


 There was a line to use the bathrooms and a line at the bakery that ran out the door and down the street.


The second visit was on a Tuesday – truly the best day to visit.  The lines at the market were short.  The line at the bakery was short. cupcakes And after buying some gorgeous cupcakes, there was an open place to sit in the shade, eat and take in the atmosphere.


This place is so popular and it’s easy to see why.

It’s the kind of place you want to bring your family to.


It’s the kind of place you’d want to create if you had the money.


It’s the kind of place every town should have but, for some elusive reason, doesn’t.


I’ve been told by more than one person that I remind them of Joanna Gaines.  Truly high praise, but totally inaccurate, as proven by the fact that NO ONE at the Silos mistook me for her.  Ha!

    Have a young friend who has been to Magnolia. I watch a lot on HGTV, but no plan to travel there yet!

      Hi Karen, Not sure if I would drive from another state to visit, but it is nice that it’s so close. Truth is, I hardly watch the show anymore, but when people visit, that’s where they want to go and I’m happy to oblige. 🙂

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
