    What I love about Grapevine, Texas are the Art Galleries on Main Street. In this photo the stairs lead up to a state-of-the-art second floor of the Grand Gallery, located at 636 South Main Street in Grapevine (817) 410-3185. Within the last few years, several new galleries have opened up and local artists can display and sell their art. The Grand Gallery is one of the newest buildings. On Main Street in Grapevine, I have discovered and met many talented and sophisticated artists.           At the Grand Gallery, I think the staircase alone is worth admiring. It's architecturally exquisite. There's attention to detail, craftsmanship, and beauty. As a visitor, I stood at the bottom of the stairs almost hypnotized by man's imagination and creation. There is plenty of natural light and r...

  What could be better on the last Sunday of September than to capture the sight of a beautiful butterfly?  Butterfly capture at Blooming Colors Nursery & Landscaping located at 2221 Ira E. Woods, Grapevine, TX on Sunday 9/29/2013.   One of my favorite local cities to visit is Grapevine. It is a city that is alive with music, boating, flowers, butterflies, really good restaurants, down-to-earth people who enjoy the shops of Main Street or just pausing every now and then to visit a Nursery like Blooming Colors Nursery & Landscaping.   Although Autumn weather is nice, I really hate to say goodbye to Summer. The beautiful colors of the butterfly can be appreciated only by contrast to the blooming flowers it chooses to rest in solitude. The very fact that I have been lucky enough to see an ...

If your goal to purchase a home or refinance your mortgage using your Grapevine TX Loan Rates entitlement, the interest rate you can get is a huge factor in determining the lender you choose to work with as well as what your payment will be.   The market can be volatile, and rates on loans can change daily, and can even fluctuate during the course of a day.   So what factors determine what rate you can get?   All home loan products are secured by mortgage bonds, or securities  that are traded daily on wall street like stocks.
