I love older homes and enjoy touring them. It brings warmth and comfort to my soul.
Last Friday when my friend and I drove the 2 hour drive from my home to purchase tickets
for the upcoming Christmas Tour of Homes in the historic town of Madison,Georgia, we
were surprised by Ruth, the host at Heritage Hall, the headquarters for the Historical Society.
After we had paid for our tickets she asked if we'd like a tour of the home, of course we were
excited and said "yes". Here are some pictures.
Since a child I have loved these homes with the big columns. We rang the door bell and when no
one came at once, we sat in the rocking chairs and enjoyed the view and pretended we lived here.
Oh but when we got inside it was so lovely, as if Scarlet O'Hara was somewhere in the house waiting
for us to be announced and would come down the stairs any minute.
Oh is that her ghost in the mirror, oh no that's my friend,Jane.
Wouldn't you love to have Tea at this dining table! I would,
I can see myself rocking in the rocker and enjoying this beautiful bedroom.
Love this rose chandelier so pretty and pink! Roses hanging from it.
In another room was another vintage gown.
Love the children's room with the small furniture and see the tiny shoes.
What child wouldn't love this room and have a Teddy Bear Tea at this table!
I hope you have enjoyed our tour of this great historic home and if you live near then on Nov.30th and Dec. 1, it and other homes will decorated for Christmas and you can tour it again, just get your tickets early and meet me there. I'll be doing the day tour and night tour so I can see all the lights.
I love this small town and go there often since one of the state parks we camp at is only 30 minutes away. Two years ago this month when we were there I came home with my Chihuahua, Madi, (short for Madison). She was born in this town and given to me by a nice lady that works in one of the stores.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
