Sunday afternoon was one of those days that should be bottled and sold. The weather was glorious in the Texas Piney Woods. Sunny, low humidity, and temperatures in the high 60’s. I look forward to the San Jacinto home tour every year and this year my buddy the Social Planer made it an event.
We started at her beautiful home with soup and desserts to fortify us on our adventure then off to our first stop on Happy Trails Ln.
The home was beautiful especially considering the owner had just moved back in a month ago.
I especially liked the 12 days of Christmas stitched pictures on the curtains and the mismatched chairs. The bedroom is so large there is a dining table in the room. It was too crowded for photos.
The second home was literally right up the road and belonged to the daughter of the first owner. The home was beautiful but I especially loved the stained glass windows that the master was designed around.
There was a sweet little girl room.
Our next stop was Thee Evergreen Church.
This little country chapel was built with lumber from the site a hundred years ago.
Ship lap, beautiful stained glass, pews that were made on site when the chapel was constructed. Swoon.
Our next stop, wow. A beautiful 10,000 square foot log home that is a site to behold.
The exterior was so large I literally had to take the pictures in sections.
Oiled rocking chairs on the front porch.
The owner is a master quilter and her work greets you at the front door. Oh, and yes, that is a taxidermied cougar hanging out in the rafters.
The tree has to be 12 foot tall. It is covered with a large Father Christmas topper. It was stunning.
The kitchen was a dream. There was a copper sink that I loved.
My buddy, Carol, was the docent in the master bedroom.
The shoe section of the closet. It was a site to behold. Imagine deciding which shoes to wear.
Oh my goodness! That back yard.
Outdoor man room.
Horse shoes in the pool surround.
A slide in the waterfall.
We grudgingly left this beautiful home for a sweet little church in the woods.
Those beautiful green windows cast a beautiful glow.
Lights are original to when the building was electrified.
A church member commissioned the painting in the 1950’s.
Original wavy glass.
The tour was fun. Another chance to see how beautiful our community is.
