We haven't quite moved in, there are still many last minute touches, but all in all this new home of ours is taking shape.
This Christmas Tale began about 2 months ago when Stacey from
Poofing The Pillows extended her warm and caring Texas hand of friendship, and invited twenty plus Texas bloggers to come together to share their Christmas cheer.
I was thrilled when she issued the invite and in my mind's eye I have been preparing for this
Blog Hop for quite some time.
I recall envisioning myself in our new French Country Style Home sitting by a perfectly
dressed Christmas Tree, a roaring fire, boxwood wreaths on each window and maybe even a hot cocoa station nestled among greenery on the Butlers Pantry.
Well, that is not going to happen this week, so we have moved on to~
"Keep Calm and Go To Plan B."
So right this minute we are in a Hotel Room, with all of the things from our apartment in the
garage of our new home.
We do have some stockings hung with care though...and there are very Merry Elves
which are up to all types of mischief.
It seems fitting for this Texas Christmas post to include a patriotic Flag of our great state.
This flag will be replaced with other decor when our household goods are delivered on Friday, scratch that, Monday...oh not yet, but Tuesday.
We do not have our Christmas Tree yet, but what we do have, are many Cedar Trees in the
backyard and they are serving as Mother Nature's Christmas Tree.
While our kitchen appears to be complete we have cabinets without glass or knobs and yet we have fully operable microwave, and built in oven, but no stove or refrigerator.
The strangest things happen when building a new home.
Partial deliveries are made, a few windows are washed at a time, some doors are painted and some are not.
Sometimes this has all seemed like a dream.
We may be short on a home to live in, but we still have joy in our hearts.
Even a fully functional Master bathroom waits for us...whoo hoo!
Including a window with a view.
Even my paperwhites survived the move and are thriving.
Thank you so much for joining me today!
