Our Texas Home

These are various pictures of our home, neighborhood, projects we have been working on, purchases we have made, and new decorating ideas. Probably not interesting to anyone but ourselves! We bought this house in December of 1993 and spent 20 years transforming it. Great neighborhood, close to Lake Arlington where we took Biskit and Cookie almost every day. We moved to Sedona, AZ in July 2013 after retiring from our jobs. Lots of memories we made in Texas.

Summer days

Blooming and fragrant "Star Jasmine"
on our driveway fence. Their sweet smell surrounded us
on our trip to Alaska. We came home and planted our
own so we can enjoy their aroma in Texas. 4-2008
