Life As Art

Happy New Year friends!  I hope you are enjoying the fresh start that 2023 holds for us all.

It’s been good to take a little break from blogging. Over Christmas vacation, we made a trip to Texas to see family. It was a wonderful time and this Michigander can hardly believe I have nephews who are Texans! While in the Lone Star State, we toured the George Ranch turned museum in Richmond, Texas. I absolutely loved the old homes on the property.

So many times I thought to myself if these walls could talk. It really doesn’t matter what time period or what area of the world you are in, home is always an important aspect of living.

Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Such a sweet story. All the snow that fell the past few weeks was put to good use by this grandpa to bring happiness to his grandkids.

    Maria, I live in Dallas. I’m happy you got to visit our fabulous state. I was disappointed that you didn’t share the name of the ranch, where it is or more about it. Can you share a link to it? Thanks.

      You’re right Carol, I missed that! I had shared the location and name on social media and YouTube, but not here. It’s the old George Ranch in Richmond, TX. Sorry that we just missed the exhibit they had on Black cowboys, but so interesting to learn about the family who ran the place for many generations.
