The end of our Savannah tour of homes and gardens for 2010
This home had just been renovated. The home owner was fun he was really enjoying showing off his home and legs to everyone. The upstairs was very elegant while the downstairs was like the homeowner colorful and fun.
love those long windows. The upstairs kitchen went on forever with lots of counter and cabinet space.
The downstairs walls were between a lime and an olive green. I loved the faux marble painted concrete floors and the little galley kitchen.
next up ...
The dining area was beautiful the chandelier with the painted bamboo chairs was great. The sitting area was painted kinda of a dark pewter color. I loved it with the blue and chocolate furniture.
The house has a colorful past with lots of tales about murder and evil spirits long before Jim Williams came to town.. This brick wall separates it from our next house. The wall has broken bottles mortared to the top of it. Some say they are there to keep the evil spirits away and some say to keep the evil spirit that lived there in... Me ... I say they are cool and the sunlight shining through them looks pretty .. don't want to piss off any spirits good or bad ..
Our next home had Savannah writer Susan B. Johnson inside signing her book Savannah's Little Crooked Houses: If These Walls Could Talk and I hear it has a story to tell.
We had a wonderful lunch in City Market and did a wine tasting at Meinhardt Winery Which was awesome the guy's running the place were so much fun we tasted 7 or 8 wines and each one was better than the one before .. good thing we had a long walk back to our car cause we were feeling happy ..lol
We also hit the Goodwill on Broughton street where I found a really pretty cut glass mini candle chandelier for 3 bucks and we later saw in a shop for $35 so that was my woohoo find of the day.
It was an awesome day and I'm ready to go again ..
Hope ya'll enjoyed the tour ..
Miss computer is heading to the doctor for a few days she has slowed down to a crawl and has no space left for me to play which is why I haven't been blogging or visiting as much ..
