Welcome to the Texas Bluebonnet Blog Hop and a big Texas thank you to my Rockwall
neighbor and friend Stacey, from Poofing The Pillows , for organizing this little gathering.
We are all so very happy to have you join us, it warms our hearts and our lives to see you
here with us in the Lone Star State.
We savor Spring time here in Texas because we know that within just a few short months
we will have gone from abundant blooms and Blue Bonnets to withered flowers and browns.
So, today I welcome you to our new home where I am sharing a few glimpses of what
Spring feels like in our neck of the woods!
I am certain you have heard of our Bluebonnets, so each year I usually write a little tribute
A few years ago I shared a little post on a Bluebonnet Spring, where I included a little Texas
fact about the pretty Bluebonnet.
For those of you who have so gently followed me along in 2015, you know the agony and
ecstasy of our effort to build our dream home from sticks.
Today, I am sharing the joy of Texas living in our state, so please come on in!
We had a little tour of our kitchen a week or two ago.
Today let us begin in the entry.
Our home is a combination of French Country Farmhouse and Texas Hill Country.
Most of all it is home.
Our new home was designed and built to look old, it really does feel old!
From the Old French Brick with heavy mortar, referred to as schmear and Granbury Grey
natural stone from the town of Granbury, just a few Texas miles up the road from us.
Plain and simple, and plenty of flowers….smile, are a must in our home!
Here we welcome all of our loves.
This is where we live, love and play with our precious family.
We are still tweaking and in reality probably will be the rest of our lives.
But seriously, this is one of the lasting joys of our home.
We are short on rugs!
Most of our furniture is old, but the nifty thing is now they have become antiques!
You know the saying about holding onto things…
I love, love our soaking tub, it is a glorious place to be after a long day spent outside
tending to our yard and Vegetable Garden.
Do you know that I have not used a shovel or hoe in several years, talk about a good arm
Followed by a relaxing evening on our back patio.
Enjoying the sweet scents of Spring.
Our breakfast nook with a view and perhaps even having the opportunity to see some
sweet bunnies or even a coyote stroll by.
Decorating a little here.
And loving, and living in Texas.
Thank you once again for joining us all, we just love that you took the time from your busy
schedules to do so!
Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner of the Thoughts Of Home Thursday #4
Spring Giveaway, can’t wait to see you!
