It was a Beautiful Sunday

in Warrenton and Carmine Texas.  I love driving the countryside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and exploring it.  Seeing the historic homes is probably one of my favorite things to do, besides antiquing of course.  Here are beautiful homes we saw in Carmine:

Beautiful porch to sit on and have a relaxing day.

I loved the tallness of this house.  It seemed to command attention.

Of course picket fences always catch my eye.

Flags flying in the breeze.

Now, this home has caught my eye many times.  Probably because it's white and just seems so inviting.

Here's another side view of it.  There appears to be guest quarters in the back.  Maybe it's a B&B, I'm not sure, just really like it.


Of course I love churches equally as much as historic homes.  This one is at the end of the street.  Tomorrow I'll post a shop that we stopped at.  Then, on Wednesday, wait until you see these homes! You'll be shocked.  How was your weekend?


  1. Thanks for the tour! Lovely homes....those front porches and the picket fences really are welcoming and charming!
    Take care, Laura

  8. Hi Theresa,I also love looking at historal homes and places. Thanks so much for sharing these.I love that little white one as well...very sweet and simple..hope you have a blessed week.....

  9. Hi Teresa,
    Can't wait to meet you in person...when you stay at the Le Shiloh Shabby Chateau. I think it was just meant to be. We are excited to have such a sweet guest coming our way... just email me whenever you are ready. I was kinda wondering if you were coming for Judy Hills Christmas thingy?

    As for my weekend, I went shopping at Good Will Saturday and scored big. Then Sunday we decided to go to Canton since we backed out Friday due to the weather didn't buy much there.

    Your pictures of the little white house and the church are quaint aren't they... a reminder when things were more simple and laid back. You can almost hear Andy Griffin whistling!

    You have a blessed week.
