    1. Ahhh, Deanna darling, so nice to hear from you ! Texas has blizzard conditions in the Panhandle and it's like Spring in Houston.

  3. What a gorgeous estate. Our last house in Houston was in Hunters Creek on Kuhlman. Lovely area and close to absolutely everything.

    1. Sam, we live a couple of streets over from Kuhlman...so in the same neighborhood for certain. Small world isn't it?

  4. What an odd coincidence....I've never read your blog before, just clicked over here from Tish's because you posted a comment saying you were in Houston (as am I). Much to my surprise, I recognized this house, whose original owners were acquaintances of mine. Small world indeed.



Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, each of them mean so much to me. After all, the interaction is the reason we blog. xx's
