Home Tours

Posted by Picasa
Here are a few of Tall Husband's photos from the 2007 home tour in Chappell Hill, Texas.

Home tours expose the voyeur in most of us. Tall Husband and I love seeing how others live. We have been docents a number of times for such tours. And we appreciate the generosity of all the homeowners and the pride of place they share with us. If you are in the Houston area in December, you can find a number of interesting tours. Here are a few:

A great place to stay to see any of the above home tours is the Ant Street Inn in Brenham, Texas. Our favorite rooms are: the Charleston; all pink with a queen Rosewood bed with a bird and her nest carved into the headboard; and the Memphis room with it's 100- year-old freight elevator in the middle of the room (elevator is no longer operable.)

While you are in Brenham, Texas visit Beadboard UpCountry; you will think you are in Provence.


  1. AAAACK! The Ant Street Inn is our ALL time favorite place to stay in Central Texas. We love it, love it, love it. We've stayed in the Memphis, Savannah and, my all time favorite, the San Antonio. You HAVE to stay in the San Antonio room, it is TO DIE FOR!

  2. Hi Tara,
    O.K. it's the "San Antonio" the next time we are there!
