This is Katy's bedroom. You'll notice that someone else is on the bed. That's Tula, who gives me the stink eye whenever I am there visiting. Somehow she always seems to position herself for the photos.
We got that old iron bed, with its wonderful chippy green paint, for her at an auction in North Carolina when she was in college, and we had to borrow our neighbors old VW van to get it home. She has been moving it with her for the last 12 years. I am on the lookout for another one.
This is Cary's entrance hall,
and this is the eating area in her kitchen. Must have been party time as I see streamers and a happy birthday banner.
Cary and her family live in a 150 year old farmhouse in Atlanta. It is one of only a very few that survived the Civil War. While home schooling and wrangling three kids, two dogs, two cats, and a bunch of chickens, Cary is somehow finding time to add her wonderful touches to their historical home.
These photos can be found here along with some other wonderful old house photos.
I'm so happy that they inherited my love for old things. It sure makes gift giving easy.
As much as I would love to share a photo of my wonderful space, I have been busy thrifting and now I'm busy stepping over things. In other words it is a big fat mess.
Stay warm and if you live in the south and are in the path of that big storm, please be careful.
