Daddy Gone a Year and Autumnal Equinox

It's such a pretty time...I've got all of the windows in the house open and the "Nature Songs" CD that I played for Dad in his last days is playing...

I like the sense of summer ending and fall beginning, somehow I feel his Spirit in the sweet and gentle cool air? Oh, Daddy, I love you so much.

For the Front Door...a Halloween Wreath Challenge

I've pulled so many twisted branch wreaths from trash heaps, I can't begin to count them...saved them for fun challenges like this! Helps that a friends birthday is coming up and I'll surprise her with a little something for her new home.

Starry skies and summer breeze

Gentle breezes are blowing in anticipation of Ike's landing later this evening in Texas.

Finally got my blog banner from Tiffany Jane! Just have to figure out how to make it fit across the top of the page...hmmm...eight years at Dell and still so computer challenged? I have no excuses.

Busy days, business cards and planning the new build with Steve. Thinking about unique items for the 78704 house, perhaps a trough in the kitchen counter?

Starting my career in Real Estate

So, Steve and I have purchased another great property in Austin's fantastic 78704 neighborhood. I've finally got my real estate license and am happily working with the super folks at Century 21 HS & Associates in Georgetown, Texas.

We've demolished the structure below, but salvaged some interesting pieces and the metal went to recycle. Slab will be coming soon...with another gorgeous home designed by Tim McIntyre . We saved long leaf pine floors from the house, Steve will do custom stairs with the material and the house will also include the same quality cabinetry as do all of the SGFHC, Inc. houses.

Call or write if you are looking for a nifty new place to live , or if you have a nifty old place to sell! Thanks, Bridget
