The Menard House

Last weekend my mother took me to a special Holiday event at the Menard house for low tea. The Menard house was built in 1838 and is the oldest surviving home in Galveston Texas. My mother knows my deep love for old historic homes so what a perfect way to spend my birthday! Be sure to click on Read More to view all my photos!

My Birthday

I had a wonderful day today on my Birthday! The day started out with a beautiful gift from my other half, my birthstone, the London Topaz followed by my Mother taking me out for low tea in a Christmas decorated historic home built in 1838 in Galveston - I will share a following post on the Menard House and the sweet historic candy shop I went to as well! I also went antique shopping, dining and went home to my lovely daughter and Ashley who surprised me with more sweets and gifts! All of it was fantastic indeed ;)

How beautiful is the London Topaz! It's a bit more teal in person. I'm so happy it's my birthstone!
LOVE my new ring - London Topaz
My beautiful flowers and gifts - and yes, I wanted a pizza pan and slicer! Look at that awesome candle holder!

Our Main Christmas Tree

I left all my Hallmark ornaments in the attic. I have some really awesome ones I've collected for over 30 years! My grandmother stated getting them for me when I was a child. I do like how this tree turned out though ;)
