Every year the Historic Tyler on Tour committee and Historic Tyler, Inc. board host a Homeowners' Party to honor the owners who graciously open their homes to the public during the weekend of the Tour (March 26-27). As a token of our appreciation, the homeowners are presented with a drawing of their home and a set of note cards designed with the scanned home drawing. (These are some of the drawings.)
My artist friend, Patrice (on left in the gorgeous pink jacket) has done the drawings for the past two years. She is amazing and so generous to donate her time and talent to the Tour. Thank you, Patrice!
Patrice and I (chairman of the Tour this year) had the honor of presenting the homeowners with their drawings and note cards.
What a pleasure... This young man has been such a delight to get to know. John grew up in this neighborhood and returned to his hometown and home neighborhood last year... AND is opening his home for the Tour!
Deborah and Nancy, two on the left, were the chairs of this lovely party.

The party was lovely and much fun. We hope the homeowners caught a glimpse of how much we appreciate them.
This was my contribution... I have to say, it was great fun making these tiny little treats! I don't usually do "tiny"; I'm more of a "big" cook. LOL!
I have been so blessed this year with generous homeowners and a wonderful committee. I am grateful.
