My mom, aunt, cousin, and I went on a historic home tour in Staunton, VA weekend before last. It was very interesting to have the opportunity to see the inside of five very pretty homes.
The first house was oh so pretty, but no photographs were allowed inside. I loved the porch on the front and side.
This house was my favorite. It was loaded with charm! The hosts in this home told me to take as many pictures as I wanted to take.
This porch is upstairs, off of two of the bedrooms. It is screened in and even has a tv. I’d be out here three seasons if this were my home.
The attic in this house had been converted into a giant playroom with a bedroom area. Look at this cute bathroom tucked under the eaves.
In both the kitchen and bathroom, the owners had painted over the old tile. I thought that was a clever way to camouflage ugly old tile.
It was too crowded in this home to take pictures.
A florist did the arrangements and decorations for this home and they were very pretty. A good portion of this home had leopard printed carpet. (Can you read my mind???)
This home was the only one that was truly decorated inside and out for Christmas. The owner did it all herself!
The sled used as a coffee table was bought in Vermont.
I loved that she threw in a touch of whimsy. I’d say that there’s a story behind this arrangement. Do you see the P. Buckley Moss print above the carolers? She’s been popular for a long time around here.
I’d love to have a pool like this in my backyard.
And I’ll take the pool house, too!
I don’t know if you can see it, but there’s a waterfall behind that wreath.
We even had time to take at peak at the beautifully restored Stonewall Jackson Hotel.
Here I am with my sweet Mama in front of the tree.
I love a house tour, particularly at Christmas!
