2016 Anniversary Haus: A Final Wrap-up

Apologies to my mother and a handful of other people who might be reading this for taking so long to write a post, but I have spent this summer, when I haven't been taking care of Pressing Events, trying to increase my people skills ...so, this Blog has been on the back shelf and getting a tad dusty. But please, do come in! Yes, this is our Ski House, thank you Alexandra Ferguson! We love her pillows :) The time to return to Houston is fast upon us and I need to post the final reveal on Anniversary Haus. It...

2016 "Mi Casa Calvert"

Mi Casa Calvert is set to debut in mid June right after Holly and I return from our Photography Camp in Italy with Annette Joseph Style and Emily Followill.

A big thank you to all the bloggers and Pinterest folks who tag their favorite paints.

You can see more pictures of the before look here. Remember David Medina went to Home Depot for the cabinetry, granite and appliances. Ruggs-Benedict, here in Edwards, did the hardwoods.

2015 "Are y'all ready to see your Fixer Upper???"

Fixer Upper HGTV Magnolia Market Musings Rocky Mountain Reno Waco

2015 "Are y'all ready to see your Fixer Upper???"

    Well, the truck is loaded and we have handed off to Super-Man, aka David Medina. And I suspect by now he is back in Colorado - what a guy! After meeting him at the Austin Airport yesterday we began driving to the wedding of Meredith and Brian in the Metroplex... hello, Knight Family Reunion! But as we approached Waco I asked my Beloved if he would indulge me by running through Magnolia Market. He always says YES and I was not disappointed. Lots of foot traffic for sure.
