The Georgetown House!


Hello Sweet Friend! How are you? Hope you had the best of weekends.
Mine was great because I spent part of it in Austin with my family.

On Friday afternoon before going to Chad's house I visited the property in Georgetown.
I wanted to show you where I would live if and when my boss decides on moving me.

Here in the first picture is the little guest house I would be living in. Yes the pink and green is the same colors of the house next to me out here on the North Forty. As you can see from this photo the house is very small but cute as a button.

If you take the sidewalk just a skip away you are at the main house. It is a three story old Victorian home.
Also painted in the pink and green shade that Barbara loves. 

I tried to capture the wrap around porch on one side but it was starting to rain so since I am 90 percent sugar I had to take pictures fast.

As you drive the long driveway up to the houses there is this old buggy sitting in the front yard. Would you believe the spokes are pink and green.

In this picture you can see how close the main house is to the guest house.

This is part of the back yard. Way in the back yard is the pink game room.

Look at the old tires painted different colors and filled with dirt for flower pots.

Here is where they grill outdoors and have a small fire pit.

Back view of the main house. To the left you enter the den area. The stairs to the right is a sun room that is off of a gorgeous kitchen.

Her great grand children have lots of outside fun places to be entertained.

Every time I see these two swings I smile. Their plastic chairs with the legs sawed off to make tree swings.

She has two of these old cigar carts in the yard. One also sits in the front yard.

Another view of the back of the house.

This is a game room Barbara had built after she bought this place. It is so pretty inside. Attached to it is a garage that holds about four  antique cars .

Sorry for the photo over load but wanted to share with you where I may be moving one day.

After I left here I went to my son Chad's home and enjoyed spending the evening with him. Bless his heart after working hard all day he prepared the best dinner. I love how he spoils me when I come to see him.

On Saturday morning my grandson Bailey took his First Communion. I am so proud of him.
One day this week I will download the pictures we took after the church services. You will see how Bailey and Kaci are growing up way too fast for their Grandma Yellow Hair.

Since arriving home late last night Tinkerbell has totally ignored me. She did not even sleep in the same room with me. I actually got some sleep but did feel kind of bad that she is upset with me. I wonder if I will sleep alone again tonight. lol

Enjoy your week! Do something special for you. I downloaded Joel Osteen book I Declare  31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life
to my nook. So far I think it is the best five dollars I have spent in a long time.

Love to all,
Maggie

What a great place! I love the pink and green and your little place looks like a home from a fairy tale..so cute, just like you! Anyone made of 90% sugar needs to live there! Hahaha! I did laugh at that line! Have a good week and I'm glad you were able to spend some time with family. Congrats on your grandson's first Communion..I remember mine like it was yesterday..even though I'm not Catholic anymore. It's still a wonderful memory.

What an absolutely lovely home. I do love the colors .

How nice it is that your son cooked you a dinner and spoils you. You are a lucky lady.

Hey Maggie! I have read a few of your posts on the fly but it seems like I never get time to leave my hello! Well they are sleeping right now so now is my chance!

What a big change! I know the timing is unsure & the details are unsure but It'l be interesting! :) Can't wait to see what happens Maggie! I imagine you have just a ton of emotions right now about it all...I hope you are doing okay!

That house!!!! So darling! I wish I was moving in there! Of course the kids would have to tent out & I am sure we would get kcked off the property after just one week with all my boys craziness but it'd be fun!

Think of you often Mags!!! Sending some MN love!

Hi Maggie, It is late and for some reason I am not sleepy. I love the little house and that is a lot of property in Georgetown. I am glad you got to see your grandchildren. It is always a special time. Were you close to any of the storms that I saw on the news in Texas? Flood waters really looked bad. Water can rise so quickly. I like the swings.
Have a wonderful week and Tinkerbell will get over being mad. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

That house is just precious! I love it! The grounds all seem so nice! If you move there, it would be fun, I imagine. A plus being close to family! That is my dream, to one day live close to some of my grands.
I hope Thinkerbell doesn't stay mad to long. Aren't they funny?
God Bless~
Debbie

Love that little house and grounds. I'm wondering what the story is as to how you met your boss. She has an eye for detail, doesn't she? I spent a good part of Saturday at The Vineyard near Gardenridge Pottery. A nice place where my daughter got married. Now she will be living in Spring Branch.

Arkansas Patti said...

Lucky you being 90% sugar. I tend to be more of that other stuff that melts in the rain:))
You do like pink don't you?? What an amazing place she has. It is theme park cute.
I can see pluses for you in each place. I do hope you get the situation that makes you the happiest.

What a sweet cottage, Maggie! It looks like a playhouse for adults! : ) The whole layout is lovely.

It certainly is a fairyland spread. It is funny how cats will let us know when they are displeased. Probably around dinner time, she will get over it.

Julia said...

Charming little house and I love the upstairs window. Is it all furnished?
The grounds are also beautiful and manicured. It must be a steady job of keeping the grounds neat.

The maintenance guy must be tired of the old girl or tired keeping the grounds so tidy and wants to move to your place.

Take all the spoiling you can get from your son. You deserve it.
I hope that now you have seen the house and all the work that you are expected to do, you can make your own mind. Like you said, the little house is so very close to the big house...

Ah... the old pouting trick from Tinkerbelle, she is laying the guilt trip on you but she will soon forgive you. It just goes to show that animals have feelings just like we do. She'll mellow and soon will be back in your bed.

Hugs,
JB

I think that I would want to stay put too.
Usually gut intuitions are right on. It's a hard decision to make.
Hugs & love

What an adorable little house.
Can't go wrong with pink and green.

The swings made me smile too.

I think the houses are enchanting--how fun. I'll be anxious to hear if you ever make the move. To answer your question, I have never been to hear Joel Osteen. The church is quite a ways from my house, and honestly, I enjoy my own church services so much that I would hate to give them up to make the trek over there. I have been to hear Beth Moore on several occasions, when she teaches here in her hometown. Are you familiar with her?? Hugs to you!

Hello!!

Thanks so much for stoopping by!!

What a darling little house that is... Do you know for sure if you will be moving?
As far as how I get all those pics to download. ..... I download all pics from my cmaera to my computer first . Then when I am doing a post, I will downlaod about 10 at a time and then rearrange them and then download more. I work on my posts for a few days before I actually post them. It really does not take that long to download the pics so i suspect that your problem as to why it takes so long must be your computer itself. My son is an IT specialist and keeps my computer updated constantly so I never really have to worry about it....I hope that helped in some way..

Hugs,
Deb
