I really don't have a lot going on for this week, but if you have something email us and I can edit the post. Otherwise, I just wanted to give a heads-up on the Houston Heights Association Home & Garden Tour that's coming up Saturday and Sunday, April 10-11, noon - 6:00 p.m. each day. 

In conjunction with the home tour, there is a cool raffle but apparently I can't say anything else about it because State law prohibits talking about raffles on the internet. Sad. But if you already saw the details, tell your friends and neighbors where to go and what to see!!

Home tour details from the Heights Assoc website:

Themed Now Showing…The Houston Heights, the event will showcase six distinctive homes in the area, dating from 1903 to recent construction, each reflecting the unique character and architecture of one of Houston’s most cherished and eclectic neighborhoods.  

Shuttles will be available for boarding at the Heights Fire Station at 107 W. 12th and Yale St., where parking is also available. Tour goers are asked not to park at the tour homes. 

TICKETSHome Tour tickets are $17 in advance, available on the site  and beginning March 6 at Another Place in Time, the Artful Corner, Buchanan’s Native Plants, Eclectic Home, Jubilee and Waldo’s Coffee House. Day-of-tour tickets are $20 and may be purchased at Buchanan’s Native Plants, Another Place in Time, Heights Fire Station, and at each home. Tickets include all six homes and bus shuttles. Tickets for individual homes are $5 each.

A note on another cool thing happening in the Heights:

Sunset Heights resident Becky Seabrook is heading up an effort to create a new garden at Field Elementary. The principal and newly formed PTA are interested in moving forward with a garden on the SW corner of the campus.  The garden, which will be used for core curriculum as well as after school programming, will be completed in phases as funding is available.  If you're interested in volunteering to help build the garden or make a monetary or in-kind donation, please contact email me (link on the left) and I'll forward your information to Becky.  Here are some plans from the Sunset Heights website.
