Our poor dear Joni of Cote de Texas is not having much fun, being hunkered down at her home in Houston without power and without Starbucks, which is her life's blood. Update: Head on over to Cote de Texas to read about Joni's lessons from Ike.But if you want to see some pictures of Joni's great house and how incredibly adorable she is, pick up the October issue of Better Homes & Gardens.
I was at the grocery store today and while I was in the check out line, I noticed that they had the August, September and October issues on display. After riffing through all three issues, I spotted Joni and her French/Texas style house. Since there aren't pictures on the BHG website, as far as I can see, I scanned some of them for you. Joni has such great taste and a feel for classics such as blue and white ginger jars and sunburst mirrors.
I hope you will keep Joni and the multiple thousands of other people in south Texas in your thoughts and prayers or click here to make a contribution to the Red Cross. These people will be feeling the effects of Ike for many years to come.
