    I've never been to Texas either but have wanted to go to Austin for a long while now. I love how Dallas seems to have a few eras of time represented by the architecture in those photos.xo

    that mural is incredible… is it spray-painted or like a tile mosaic, i wonder? at any rate, it is beautiful. thanks for posting! -maria

    This may sound naive, but I always wondered what Dalla Texas looks like! Thanks for the sneak peak.

    Dallas is next on my TX to-go list. I live in Houston, and we just visited Austin on the weekend. Next will be Dallas and San Antonio!

    aren't these lovely? i did a little research, and the ornate red building was originally built as the city courthouse and now houses the old red museum of dallas county history and culture–i think i need to visit dallas! {in an interesting little side note, its romanesque revival architectural style is the same as that of the original courthouse and post office here in wilmington!}

    Hi Erin! I was just wondering, I live in Scotland, and I was wondering how you would feel about a Scottish 'Your Downtown'?

  • Reply {lovely little things} June 26, 2009 at 4:27 pm

    I love this post you do – if you're ever in need of someone to do a "your downtown" Seattle let me know, I'd be happy to participate!

    as a native dallasite i can honestly say these pictures took my breath away. how gorgeous did she make our town look? such a good job.
