Hey ya'll, like everyone else I have been busy busy... only I haven't been busy with decorating, baking or shopping. I have been busy painting and helping build momma a greenhouse. The weather here has been so nice, which makes it kinda hard to get into the Christmas decorating mood. Maybe I will get some Christmas pretties going soon, and maybe not... and since I have no pretties of my own to share today how about I share the St. Thomas Episcopal Church Christmas Tour of homes.
Beth and I finally got to spend sometime together Sunday. We had a late lunch of crab stew at The Exchange then off to The Byrd Cookie Company for a little sweet treat of some of the best cookies around. Next we headed out to Isle of Hope for the tour and to see if there was still chanty's in the oak... This was by far the best tour that we have ever been on and we have done a bunch ... We can't wait till they do it again which I understand will not be till 2013 Oh no it's biannual ... Oh well make plans to join us cause we will be there.. So without further ado ~
First up is the absolutely beautiful Low Country style cottage of Ken and Kelly Bianco, this home was my favorite it had little porches all around the house and the fencing was covered in confederate jasmine, I bet it feels like they are in heaven when it is in bloom. There is also an attached guest cottage that had a screened in porch as the pass through from the main house's kitchen to the guest suite.
a simple gathering of natures gifts
awesome ! love that they kept the flag up ... and how about that lantern, there was one on each end of the front porch.
so inviting and the home owners were so sweet answering questions and allowing us to linger .. I really didn't want to leave this home..
it is a very coastal home in it's decor and the design layout.
sorry but my pictures really don't show how beautiful this home really is
Twigs = gorgeous... Ok the urn, candle sticks and table help make the twigs perfect..
part of the guest suite
and lastly the little screen pass through porch that connects the main house to the guest cottage .. OK shoot me that's it for this beautiful home. I hate to say that I got so caught up in the house and talking that I didn't take pictures in every room but I can promise every room was perfect..
The church was decorated really lovely. The food was fabulous and everyone was kind and friendly.. Thank you to all of those that worked so hard to make mine and Beth's night perfect..
ya'll come on back cause there is more of "An Isle of Hope Christmas" to share.. Thank you so much for stopping by.. hugs from Savannah, Cherry
