Tour the Beautiful 2014 Southern Living Idea House in Bluffton, South Carolina

Did you try to access BNOTP today and found yourself staring at a blank page? I awoke this morning, sat down to create a post and discovered that was not going to happen. Apparently Comcast was experiencing some kind of major routing/networking issues and it effected many sites nationwide. My host, Liquid Web, was effected by the outage and from what I read online, the outage impacted several network … [Read more...]

Historic Home Tour: An 1880 Victorian Mansion, Beautiful & Bright

I subscribe to several "old house" websites featuring information about historic homes available for purchase.  Though I doubt I'll ever own an historic home, I do love to tour them pretty much every chance I get.  I drool over their large windows, deep moldings, high ceilings and rich history.  If there's a ghost story attached, it's all the better. But this post isn't about ghosts, instead it's a tour … [Read more...]

Isle of Hope Home Tour, Part II

As promised, here are the rest of the beautiful homes facing the marina and Skidaway River in Isle of Hope in Savannah, Georgia. (Click on any picture to further enlarge it.)   The green door was really pretty on this house.   This one was my favorite...it just felt like a storybook home.   Even the tree on the left felt like it belonged in a storybook.

Touring Historic Avondale Estates

How has your weekend been going? Do anything fun today...or was it just too hot to be outside?

Next, we headed back to my friend's home for a tour of his recently … [Read more...]

Tour a Beautiful Historic Victorian Home in Newnan, Georgia

I'm a member of The Georgia Trust and twice a year (Spring and Fall) they host a "Ramble." A ramble is just that...rambling around through the town where the tour is being held and rambling in and out of some amazing historic homes. The ramble, which took place a couple of weeks ago, was in the town of Newnan, Georgia. Fortunately, Newnan was largely untouched by the American Civil War due to its status … [Read more...]
