A peek inside Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market Silos Shop

This past weekend, I was able to stop by the store "Magnolia" and catch a glimpse of this baby of Chip and Joanna Gaines (from the show Fixer Upper).  If you don't know who they are, read about them HERE.
My Instagram and Facebook friends kept commenting how they wish they could stop in, so I snapped some photos with my iPhone (excuse the poorer quality and size).  These are simply snapshots and a quick glimpse of the store.  You MUST visit yourself someday.  But in the meantime, you can live vicariously through me. :)


Throngs of people wait in lines to get inside!


The line wrapped around the block!  (Yes, it was worth the wait!!)





My college roomie and me... (first time back to Baylor University since graduation 17 years ago)



Everyone in line was so lovely.  You wouldn't guess that it is quite chilly with a breeze.


I assume these are the bicycles of some of the college students working inside.  Darling little set-up. 



Here are the silos in their rusty, magnificent glory!


Well, this just warmed my heart and my body.  Hot chocolate being passed out to those waiting in line.




Barn doors adorned with the sweetest wreaths. 


Right inside the door was this darling vignette on the wall.


"but I think I love fall most of all"


The store was bustling with shoppers!
Here, a table with some of Joanna's signature scents.


Everything... perfection!


Do you spy my name in the guest book?


So many beautiful silks... I was so busy looking, I should have been shopping!!


Even the artificial trees looked so real!  Remind me why I didn't just load the car down?  I really am kicking myself now.


Potting station


I love how real all of her silks look.




Tables filled with goodies!  The employees were literally restocking constantly.  I turned around and this table was empty.  Turned back around and employees had filled it back up!


You know how much I love a good Turkish hand towel.  I use them for napkins!  Similar found here.


My very favorite vignette!


If you brought you husband or boyfriend, you could find him over at "Chip's Corner."  The Best Stuff!!  It reminded me of the old Restoration Hardware... when they had interesting trinkets from days gone by, that you HAD TO HAVE!  I really wish I picked up some things for my boy's stockings!  


The infamous signature "Magnolia Wreath."
This one they couldn't keep in stock!  

Twine with scissors because we all need some twine with scissors, right?


Gorgeous faux evergreen wreaths


I actually fluffed these pillows on the pew to take a picture and some ladies came and sat right down!!  :)  I don't blame them.  It was so wonderful seeing so many excited people in the shop.


This black and white marble trivet was screaming to come home with me.  And the Pigs! 


Goodness at every turn.




Icing on the cake?  Joanna's darling mother wrapping up packages and working behind the desk.


As you check out, look down.  

Making my way toward the exit, into the grain barn, was an antique fair.  They had me at Hello!


A few booths filled with goodness.








And now I take you outside to the food trucks and turf grass where children where frolicking.


Various toys set strategically around to encourage play.  Old church pews for resting after a hard day shopping.


Food trucks and picnic tables and plenty of play space



And now I bring you to the garden...


Seriously... 
I couldn't take it all in.  It is just too darling for words.





Topiaries in a tray.  Perfect.





A tee pee with wooden mushroom stools, a basket of books, and children reading.  This isn't staged, folks.  Too darling!!
I truly believe that the Gaines family IS so very thankful for what God has blessed them with.  I pray that their family will continue to be blessed and that God richly rewards them for the positive role models that they are.

I hope you enjoyed my little tour around Magnolia Farms Store and Silo!

Thanksgiving Tables, Traditions, and Thoughts | BloggerStylinHomeTour

America celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November.  It is a day set apart in order to give thanks for the blessing of the harvest.  As a descendant of the Mayflower, Thanksgiving is truly a time for my family to reflect on the heritage that has been passed down for generations.  Thanksgiving weekend is set aside for trimming the Christmas Tree, playing games, and watching football.

My friend, Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co, invited me to participate in her beautiful blog hop of Thanksgiving tables and traditions.  This Thanksgiving, I wanted to incorporate things around my house on our table, aka shop my house.  I am so excited to show you my tables!  Thank you, Lindsay for including me among this fabulous line up.  If you are here from the darling Dimples and Tangles blog, welcome!  Jennifer is the reigning Queen of Tablescapes.  Please stop by her blog if you haven't already!!

In my Blogger Stylin' Fall Home Tour, I showed you how I added touches of fall throughout my home.  Today, I am showing you how I will set my Autumn Thanksgiving table.


If it is an Indian Summer, we will be eating outside. Who am I kidding?  It will be cold and blustery, but the yard is so beautiful today, I just HAD to set up my table outside!! 


The sprinkling of leaves is acting like a festive confetti of red, yellow, and orange.  Such beauty in God's creation.


A simple centerpiece of gathered foliage in their stunning display!


Brown transferware, pewter, my grandmother's silver, and dishtowels used as napkins give the table a bit of English Countryside Charm.








It's all so romantic, but WHAT do you do when you want to set a pretty table without all the fuss?  You can still attain a lovely table!  Literally five minutes and I had a new table set for next to NOTHING.  And the best part?  It all goes in the trash with no dishes to wash!


Using some outdoor furniture or even a card table,
I took the scarf off my neck and transformed it into a tablecloth.



Grocery store flowers cut and plopped in a container, paper plates dug out of my "leftover" stash, plastic cups and utensils...


It isn't about the money spent on having the "right" accessories as seen on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook.  This table could be just as lovely with white paper napkins, plates, and utensils.  Utilizing a scarf, piece of fabric remnant, or fruit adds color and texture to your table.  
You can make anything lovely with a little lipstick.


One of our traditions we do as a family is write down things we are thankful for.  We start the beginning of November and allow the children (and Mommy and Daddy) to add to it whenever they recognize something they are thankful for.  On Thanksgiving Day, we reread our "thanks" and talk about the many ways God has worked in our family over the past year by looking at "thanks" from previous years.  

I utilized our school's die cut system for these cute turkeys and leaves... the benefit of volunteering 

To me, Thanksgiving isn't just about a beautiful tablescape, Thankgiving is about FAMILY.
This is our family on Thanksgiving Day last year.  Our extended family was out of town, so we made the best of it!  Turkey, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes.. 
The table was simple.  The boys each made their own placemat with craft paper and markers while my husband and I finished up dinner preparations.  



Here we used our china and crystal, but the meal wouldn't have been any less special with all paper goods!  The focus is on being together and good conversation.

How are you spending Thanksgiving this year?

Happy Thanksgiving from my table to yours!

Next up on the tour is Restless Arrow.  Amber is sure to wow you with her lovely Thanksgiving Tablescape.  Go tell her I said hello!
