Holiday on 19th

Behold, the entrance of Behind the Garden Gate with the fresh arrangement of roses and lilies.

Windows of Behind the Garden Gate, decorated for the season, invite you in.

Here are a few of the Seasonal decorations at Behind the Garden Gate. Isn't that child's antique bathtub filled with mistletoe charming? And the tealights nestled in the cranberries!

The crowds grew at Behind the Garden Gate. We put the camera away and chatted with the other visitors. One always meets such interesting people at Felix's place.

Last night The 19th Street Merchants kicked off the Season in downtown Historic Heights (right here in Houston) with Holiday on 19th. There were strolling carolers, live music and each shop served food and drink. Tall Husband and I headed for Behind the Garden Gate where Felix Hernandez displays his wonderful floral designs and antiques. Felix Hernandez of Behind the Garden Gate has designed the floral decorations for one of the Homes on the Historic Heights Holiday Home Tour this weekend. Lucky home owner!

  1. Thanks for your references yesterday for "blogging help".

    I love the Houston Heights. We also had our stroll last night in Brenham. If you would like to see some current photos of Beadboard UpCountry, please take a look ...

  2. Hi Terri,

    After seeing your blog, I realized you need no advice on blogging. I loved your posting on Brenham. Also I added you to my blog list so I can enjoy The Countrypolitan look and news.
