King William District

When I visit San Antonio I always make it to the Riverwalk and the King William District.  They have some of the nicest Historical Homes in San Antonio.  Everytime I go there it seems they have re-done many more homes since my last visit.  I enjoy driving up and down the streets of this neighborhood and imagine myself pulling up into the driveway of some of these old homes.  My dream has always been to re-do an old home, but it just isn't in my budget.  So I'll settle for being able to see and photograph them and hope that maybe one day my dream will become a reality.
You'll have to excuse my photography skills...they're not the greatest.

 Here's what I saw....

A pretty white house...I can see myself sipping ice tea on this porch.

You can barely see it but this home had the prettiest shade of blue around the windows.

A Victorian Style home with that same shade of blue on the porch posts.

This little cottage had a lot going for it...
a precious porch, a decorative piece above the window making it the focal point of the home.
The front door seems to have a cornice above it as well.

This home had some beautiful architectural details but very hard to capture on film from the street.

I loved the look of this home with arches flanking the porch.

I had to get a close-up of the wreath.

I absolutely loved this massive column on a home that needed some TLC.

A really cute cafe...

Looks like it used to be a church.

I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Peace and Love~

P.S. If you're in the San Antonio area you must visit this neighborhood. 
Pictures just don't do these homes justice.


The Weekend~

OK,,,So we were in San Antonio this past weekend (after my hubby and I picked up my baby from Cheer Camp in San Marcos) and we had some fun family time together.  The place we stayed at was really nice and right up my alley because of the little villas surrounding the property.    It's located right in the middle of downtown SA but it felt like you were somewhere else but the city.  I Love San Antonio!

Here's a few pics of what we saw while there...

One of the villas that was available for parties and special occasions.
Another view of the same villa.

The grounds were absolutely gorgeous.

This villa housed the gym.

A view of the rooms we stayed in...every one of them has a cute little balcony.

Yes, this is a real Peacock. 
We were told that at one time they had several running around the grounds.

Asian Pheasants walking around as well.
My Baby!
It was so funny..she was worried they were going to attack her or something.

I'll do a separate post later this week of the homes we saw in the King William District.

I Love and Respect Nature~


 I'm always seeing these beautiful displays with bird nests and anything that is growing pretty in the wild and I just love the natural look of it all.  I admit, I have thought about using the real thing in my displays but can't make myself to take a home away from a helpless little bird.  So I always make my own out of twigs, dried tall grass and anything that is pliable enough to shape into a nest. This weekend, while cleaning up the yard, we found a precious bird nest in one of our trees.  There was no sign of any Momma or Bebe's in the nest, so my husband carefully cut the branch with the nest in it. 
(no birds were harmed while removing the branch)

You will be happy to know that we returned the nest back in the tree so future birds will have a safe place to rest and stay out of the elements.

Have a great week!
