I ventured back home again this weekend...
I left T in Savannah to play bachelor!
The weather was fantastic and I kept seeing little signs of spring everywhere
I'm going to brag a little bit about my awesome hometown...
Most of you aren't from Georgia, so let me give you a little history on my hometown.
Madison is one of the few towns General Sherman did not burn during the Civil War. There are reports that Madison was too beautiful to burn, but I've also heard he had a friend who lived in Madison.
Madison has rows and rows of historic antebellum homes that are beautiful!
Here are a few:
How awesome is this picket fence?
This home is currently for sale
It is a huge home on a huge lot!
The best part is both there is no real "back" to the home...
It faces two streets
Here is the "back"
And here is the "front"
See what I mean?
This home is currently being restored
If I were a gahzillionaire, I'd buy one
and buy the most fantastic antiques to put inside...
Here is another one...
Don't you love a picket fence?
This house was recently remodeled -
they gutted it down to the studs
They did a GREAT job!
Here is a home in serious need of a renovation...
It has great potential
This is the cultural center in town
It used to be a school
My grandmother actually went to grammar school here
Here is some of the historical placards in front of the building
The cultural center was hosting an antiques show this weekend
My gosh there were some GORGEOUS things
Sadly, they were WAY out of my price range, so I just did a lot of looking
I mean, just look at the rug selection
This home was having an estate sale and I picked up a few items
Good thing I got there late
I didn't spend too much...
Since I got there late, everything was an additional 20 % off, so I bought...
Aren't they cute?
They're hanging out on our mantle till I decide exactly where I want them to go...
Also, making the journey back home with me was
THE BLUE & WHITE GARDEN STOOL!!!
My Mom bought it for me for Valentine's Day!
What a GREAT Mother
and wonderful gift!
T asked me what in the world it was after I brought it in and I informed him it was a garden stool...
"We don't have a garden!?"
