Saturday, friend Shirley Ann and I traveled to a bigger town an hour south
for their Christmas Homes Tour
We both love
a - Homes Tours
b - Old Homes
c - Christmas decorations
Carthage is known for it's Victorian Homes and if they've had a tour before
we were unaware of it.
It will definitely be added to our list of "must dos" every December
for the tour was fabulous!
And even though we've been to Carthage many times
because of the tour we found a part of Carthage that we didn't know about
And we'll be back to those shops along Grand Avenue!
It was a fun day and there were a lot of homes to tour!
The Phelps House
which is owned by the Historical Society
which sponsors the event
|A tree in the first house -- the house had my favorite decor!|
|A wee feather tree in the kitchen|
full of "edible" ornaments
I adore feather trees
|A small tree in a gold pot on a stand on the wall|
It caught my eye!
|A traditional Christmas in a Victorian Home --|
a tree and an old rocking horse!
|The Mardi Gras Tree|
Shirley Ann fell in love --
this picture is for her!
|The tree in the Phelps House|
The wood, the ceiling, the light fixture!
|One of those 60's ceramic trees that everyone had|
Thought they were "passe"
But it looks good on the little table at the end of a hall!
The dining area in the living room of the first house
A round table set for four
(I love the fact that instead of four chairs there are two sets of two!)
A breakfast table in the first house
(the clock is not correct!)
The most Christmasy of all the China -- Portmerion
Heirloom China, a low centerpiece and deer
And whose eye wouldn't be caught by a blue table!
It was Christmasy -- and you know my love for blue and white china!
It was a fun day for the two of us.
We were tired for we tromped up and down a lot of narrow twisty stairs
(and they weren't all the servants stairs!)
I think we're on their mailing list for next year.
I hope so for I'd like to make this an annual trek.
Oh, and we did have a tea
And we did some shopping . . .
An always wanted came home with me!
It's Sunday and I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
