Welcome to the 50th Metamorphosis Monday!
For this Metamorphosis Monday, I thought I’d take you inside one of the homes I had the privilege of touring this year on the Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour. This charming Victorian cottage-style home with wrap-around front porch, was built in 1901 and the owner, Tricia, generously allowed me to take a few pics to share with you all. Come see how Tricia transforms her Victorian cottage at Christmas time.
Beautiful garland encircles the front door.
As I was standing outside the door with my friends, waiting to go inside for the tour, one of them said, “Hey, take a pic of the shadow on the wall.” It is awesome, isn’t it?! It cracks me up that now when I’m out somewhere with my friends, they are pointing out great shots to take for “the Blog.”
The entry speaks beautifully for the rest of the home.
Everyone loved this cozy bedroom. Rooms do not need to be large and “grand” to feel beautiful and inviting. There’s just something about the old homes…love ‘em! Note the picture rail that you see up at the top of the pic. Why don’t we still put those in our homes…such a neat idea!
This whimsical piece was at the foot of one of the beds…
A comfy chair in the same room..
Love the mirror, the wreath AND the light fixture~~~sigh~~~
Another gorgeous tree….
Tricia has an amazing creamware/ironstone collection…you’ll see part of it on this tour.
A few more pics from the tour:
I didn’t take any pics inside the home where I worked as a docent, it was soooo packed with folks on the tour. So the rest of the photos I’ll be sharing are just a few random shots I was able to take when I took the tour the day before. Unfortunately, picture taking was not allowed in many of the homes and so often when I could take pics, there were too many people around to get a good shot, but hope you enjoy the ones I did snag. Some of the following pics were taken during the day and some were taken on the candlelight tour that evening. It was a dark night so please excuse some blurriness.
Thanks for coming along for the tour!
Looking forward to seeing all your “Before and Afters.”
