saturday bliss......

is getting a call from a friend informing you of a local home show going on.

not a new house to grace this show, no siree. only my most favorite kind...

HISTORIC!!!!!
yay, now let me impart what i loved, come along if you like....

the owners of the house we are recreating let us in!!!!


the entry had me at hello!

the shutters, the wood detail......mmmmm
that perfectly round BAY, OH MERCY!
the creeping chimney
those perfect dormers...
okay, now onto the heritage home show, sorry, i got side tracked....

i love a good built in.....
isn't that crown fancy? i was drooling...
everyone needs a pretty yellow door with some bead board in their cooking space..
we loved the woodwork and detail in the dining room....
aaaahhh, and open airy stairwell.
large jetted tubs are for the birds! we all need a claw foot tub to unwind with at the end of the day!
a copper kitchen hood send me into weepiness....
open exposed beams make me want to sing an opera~!
pretty rounded windows are so comforting.......
i love built ins, i love them, i love them......
okay, you are getting me started on the quirky room lines...........
another sitting window, the good books that have surely been read there...
and the built ins below the window seat.....
the lighting is dark, but i love the 3 windows above the kitchen sink....
built ins, built ins, built ins....
pretty roof lines and that blue, happy spot.
pretty metal flower boxes that say "WELCOME"
pretty bay windows and plantation shutters, let us all partake of plantation shutters..
the end. thanks for coming along. are you weepy? i am.....
