What's new at The Brenham House

The fence we have been working on for our outside seating area!
Diane asked, "What part did Jimmy paint"?  haha

He measured, sawed, dug post holes, nailed boards, & secured the boards with screws.

... I stained the boards, drew the design, painted, and carried a lot of wood to the back of the house!

Come and relax at The Brenham House Bed and Breakfast!

                                3 eggs                                                     1 c. pecans, chopped  
                                3 c. flour                                                 3 c. green apples, peeled and finely chopped
