Houston will never be the same......

Hi Everyone,
 We bought a new home in Houston! I  do have a picture and I am dying to share it with you. I am super excited! We will be moving after the closing on the 17 or 18th of December. You have to understand, we will be driving with 3 dogs, a bird and a race car! I have always joked about owning a "zoo" and we will be a traveling one at that!We hope to arrive in Houston on the 22nd. I hope to take pictures as we make our way there and blog later. I am terrible about taking pictures but I will beg my husband to remind me.
The week went extremely fast. I looked at 45 houses with a fabulous Zip Realty agent named Susan Collins. She did an excellent job(more about that in another blog). We are glad to be back in Buffalo after a very fast paced week.

Anyway here is our home!

I am amazed at the flowers and trees in bloom. The weather was fantastic but then again remember we come from Buffalo, New York. In fairness to Buffalo, the weather has been warm here too!

Our backyard!

I am excited about this.....I can see tablescapes in my head already!
My brain has been working overtime.....ll!
We have never owned a pool.
I am going to leave the rest a secret, until we get all moved in. So keep coming back to check and see what I have posted. I am disappointed that we won't be decorating for Christmas but there will be next year! I can't wait.....

I feel truly blessed at what God has done for us...even though things are difficult, I know everything will work out.
Welcome to Tablescape Thursday.....
I would like to thank Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for hosting this weekly event!

My tablescape is not my own but a restaurant we went to in Houston that was wonderful!

Perry's Restaurant Steakhouse & Grille.

The glasses were cobalt blue and stunning with the white dishes and brown napkins!

I thought the lighting fixtures were pretty too!

The back wall is all different old wine bottles.

This is the room we ate in. The glass decanters and vases glistened in the light and were so beautiful.

Just a little peek at our visit to Houston.

Hopefully I can show you more as I discover Houston's attractions.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I am grateful for your comments and encouraging words.

Remember we owe it all to the one who created us!
In His name I pray for each of you,
Blessings my friends,

  4. Beautiful house, Elaine! Can't wait to see your new dining will show it, won't you? Hope the move goes smoothly.

  5. Hello SweetladyElaine,
    whow, this is a wonderful house. Very impressive. I can imagine how much space for pretty tablescapes it has. And the garden looks fastanstic, too. Somehow it is hard to move so short before Christmas. The move will make be a lot of work and organisation to you but in the end you have a wonderful new home. So anyway where you celebrate, in this fantastic restaurant or somewhere else, I wish you a very nice HAPPY THANKSGIVING and a luchy move.
    Greetings, Johanna

  11. The restaurant tables are lovely.
    What I really want to say, though, is WOW! What a pretty house!!!
    I think I ought to say "yeehaw" or something really Texasy, but I'm not quite sure what that is.

    It's beautiful, and I hope you will be very happy in Texas. I've never encountered a Texan whom I didn't like right off the bat.

  12. Congratulations on your new home, and welcome to the Heartland! Minus the humidity, you'll love Houston and its people. You'll love trips to Kerrville and surrounding areas....and the discount mall in San Marcos...and the trip to the Gulf Coast is no're going to have a ball! Thank you for keeping us up with your journey and for stopping by my post. Come visit any time. Cherry Kay
