Christmas in Dixie - Part II

My husband and I spent a week in my hometown of Decatur, AL this year for Christmas. I introduced Lee to the beautiful historic homes and the Christmas "contest" that they have every year which is quite impressive! There are 2 historic neighborhoods - Albany, and Old Decatur - both a wonderful showcase of late 19th century homes. To learn more about this district, click here. I thought I would share with you via the blog our annual tradition of "drive-bys" - ENJOY!!

Merry, Merry Christmas. Off to Park City tomorrow!

Cabana in Austin

As promised, here are a few photos of the 90% complete Cabana/ Casita here in Austin.
It's always fun to work on a project with friends, especially those with great taste and great personalities. The new entrance to the Cabana / "Guest quarters".
We added a shiny, lacquered console behind the sofa to off-set the "rustic" look that is happening quite a bit here. We found the Belgian wine-barrel chandelier and the Tobacco drying basket above the TV in Fredericksburg.

Don't you want to be invited over? :)
