This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

Thinking outside the box?

My mother lives in New Braunfels Texas and she sent me an email with adorable place. I just had to use it for Outdoor Wednesday!





Look at this shot into the quaint living room nice and cozy. I love the wood wall behind the sofa! 
WHY is this Outdoor Wednesday? -- keep looking


 
 Now here is the kitchen I would prefer a full size refrigerator on that wall, a full stove and microwave where the table and chairs are on the wall by the stairs leading up to the second floor. We could work out eating in the living room.


Still not outside -- I know keep looking your just not going to believe it!


  
Wonderful warm bedroom  snuggle in and read a book!  
Ok, There's a window that goes outside! no, of course that is not what I am leading to for being outside for Outdoor Wedensday! keep going it's Amazing!





This place seems very modern, perhaps like something you'd see in a swanky high rise condo or town house.  

So why is this little place a great post for Outdoor Wednesday if all I have shown you was indoor photo's?
 



HERE'S THE INCREDIBLE PART!!...

                                   
 This 1 bedroom loft apartment from the OUTSIDE......








was built inside a 1940's grain bin.

It was renovated into this upscale unit after it was purchased and relocated to the grounds of the Gruene Homestead Inn  New Braunfels ,TX


If that's not creative craftsmanship, then I don't know what is!
I couldn't help but share this because it is so cool! So there it's sits      OUTDOORS   ~wink wink~

Now would you have thought to do that with the old silos on the farm.

I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday Hop over and see other beautiful post about the great outdoors   http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

That is just incredible! I love using old things for new purposes instead of junking it!
Thanks for visiting my blog, Fay Jones was a very talented architect and the University of Arkanas was so priviledged to have him here for so many years!

I'm smitten! This was worthy of all outdoor posts. I was thinking, while enjoying all the shots that every thing creative and put into that amazing place was from outdoors.

I love the imagination put to work in that lovely place. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings - Debbie

Wow! You are so right! I enjoyed seeing this amazing transformation! Of course you and I are use to seeing amazing things that Texas Ingenuity comes up with!

My sister lives in New Braunfels! I go there pretty often...not so much in the last few months with the price of gas! It's a neat town with all the old Victorian homes and the Guadalupe River!

Your Bloggy looks great. Like your Header and background. You mentioned mine the other day...I use my own photographs through out my blog posts and in the headers...which I change alot...as you noticed. I do alot of designing in Paint.

I'm enjoying your blog! Thanks for visiting mine so often. I appreciate it!
