There were five homes on the Lampasas tour of homes, which benefited the Lampasas County Museum. Lampasas is a small town in Central Texas with a population of around 7,000.
A small house built in 1938 is an in-town residence for a couple who live on a ranch.
This cute snowman is constructed from different sizes of corrugated metal.
A collection of snowmen are scattered throughout the house.
Across the street was this house built in 1952. When his childhood home came up for sale, the present owner bought it. It also is a city home for a ranch dweller.
The reason for this picture is that I’ve never seen a porcelain sink like this. It is original to the house.
At the edge of town is a rock house constructed in the ’30’s.
This looks like a handmade pot.
Clever use of deer antlers in a deer theme center piece.
Wooden cabinet came from a monastery where it was used to store candles.
From a favorite aunt, this handmade gift has a sweet sentimental message.
A hand blown knob on a chest which was passed down in the family.
I’m not a fan of pedestal sinks because there is no place to put make-up or toothpaste or anything. This one is larger and has some surface to use.
The homeowner’s daughter told us that her mother made these manger scene blocks when she was a child. They are durable with felt characters glued on wood, so children can play with them. And now, the grandchildren enjoy them.
Unusual concrete block covered with lizards or geckos.
Very peaceful backyard with the land sloping down to a small creek. Around here, the word “creek” implies that occasionally there is water running in the bed.
The homeowner appeared to be crafty, so she might have made these.
Standing behind the home, we can see the guest house built for the homeowner’s mother in 2006. A covered walkway leads from the main house to the guest one.
The guesthouse matches the main house with a stone facade.
Inside the living room and kitchen are open and flow together.
Paddington Bear hosts a tea party.
An elevated deck provides a nice view of the backyard and a spot for pots of pansies and Boston Fern.
Cute iron birdfeeder.
Some people don’t “get” going on home tours. But we consider it a fun outing.
