{Farmhouse Style} Magnolia Pearl: a Texas Ranch

It’s not every day a Texas property like

Magnolia Pearl…

former homestead of renowned

clothing designer

Robin Brown and John Gray…

becomes available for purchase.

 But I just learned via Anne

of Fiona and Twig

that indeed this gem is seeking

a new owner to love it.

(Anne has taken lovely photos

of the ranch and is hosting

the most generous

giveaway on behalf

of Magnolia Pearl).

or by e-mail, pearl@magnoliapearl.com

This 38 acre, 3 home estate can be ours!

 Even if you must pass on this pearl of a

San Antonio retreat, I’m sure you

will not want to miss out on

the giveaway at Fiona & Twig!

(This ruffle tank and voile dress

had me at hello, and I am hoping

to be the winner of its gorgeousness!)

And by the way,

Happy March to you, beautiful readers!

We ushered in the new month

with a too-much-fun photo shoot

at my place…here is a peek at

me all snug on the snowy porch

in a very old handmade tablecloth…

very couture prairie, oui?

(Remember the grain sack shrug? Ha!)

 Happy weekend, friends.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Did you know that I
    met Anne in May 2011
    when my mom and I
    were in San Antonio
    for our annual b-day
    trip? We drove to
    Fredricksburg and I
    even got to do a photo
    shoot of her new farm
    house and grounds!
    We spent the whole
    day together and I
    love her dearly 🙂
    She's followed her
    heart and I am so happy
    that she is getting these
    great photography
    gigs!!! Gorgeous photos
    and YES, you would
    fit right in at that sweet
    MP farm : )

    PS: Great pic of you : )

    You could put on a drop cloth and look great, Michele!! I love the tablecloth, and it makes quite a pretty shawl.
    Such a lovely and cozy home. Thank you for sharing it.
    Happy Sunday.

    oooooh a drop cloth! i like how your mind works, teresa.

    i bought this handmade, very old gorgeous table cover at a tag sale for a buck. it works for all sorts of uses including fashion. we have to save these family heirlooms from the landfills!
