Mellow Yellow Monday in Waxahachie

This is my first Mellow Yellow Monday post it's one of the many Victorian homes in Waxahachie Texas. Today was also my first Monochrome Monday post on my Dallas blog. So I hope this proves that Waxahachie looks just as normal in color as it does in B&W, just a few decades behind the times. lol.

  8. If the rest of the houses look like this one I can see why it's call Gingerbread City. I like Victorianhouses. :-)

  9. What a beautiful house. The town my parents grew up in had a great number of gingerbread Victorians - I always wished I could live in one.

  15. Gingerbread, indeed! Great colors. Reminds me of the joke we tell on ourselves here in Butte America (Montana).

    Q: What's the time difference between Butte and San Francisco?

    A: About 27 years.

  22. One time in my life, I helped in the restoration of a 125 years old Victorian House in Millthorpe, a tiny county somewhere in Central West Tableland and it was hugely sitting on top of the mountain surrounded with English garden. But this one is a real stand-out. Look at those fascinating work of a skillful master builder. Simply gorgeous!

  24. This is my house now! Thanks for posting such a beautiful picture. I'd be happy to answer any questions. The first floor windows on the front of the house are 12 ft and go from the floor to ceiling. They also can open from the bottom. There are 14 full rooms and the woodwork inside is to die for! Not that I'm prejudice or anything ;)
