This is Judy and her husband
Aubie welcomes all!
Aubie welcomes all!
She left up her Christmas decorations out front because she wanted me to see how beautiful her porch looked....it was stunning. The pictures don't do it justice.
Front of her house
Side view from the driveway
She did all of this herself...very talented lady!
Banister was draped in garland, lights, ornaments, ribbons and bows
These are clear canisters in her bathroom with silver ornaments and ribbons inside....pretty neat idea.
One of the two guest rooms upstairs and where I sleep when I'm there. Everything coordinates so beautifully
Oh, lest I forget...she is a great cook. Saturday night we had hamburger steak with gravy, homemade mashed potates, green beans, her "famous" cornbread, and for dessert, peach cobbler! I probably gained 5 pounds just eating her cooking.
Den looking out French doors going onto back screened in porch
Judy's chair in the den (you can see the foyer from this pocture)
Library table adjacent to the fireplace....still partially decorated with Christmas stuff
This sign says it all "Welcome to Paradise" which she hung on her back porch. You truly feel "at home" when you are at Judy's
Screened porch runs the length of the back of the house (this picture cut off a lot of the porch)
She spray painted all her wicker last summer. The wicker on the back is this minty green and the front porch wicker is all black. It took her more than a week to paint it all but it turned out beautifully.
"Bar" area in the foyer....now let me explain something to ya'll.....Judy does not drink. They do entertain a lot and all of this is from folks who BYOB. When she was building her house, I told her about an idea I had to turn her hall closet into a little mini-bar. So, she had the builder outfit it with a mirror and light, she put in a mini-refrigerator and that hold soft drinks.
This is a display on top of her entertainment unit in the master bedroom
This is the foyer....the handpainted cabinet in there is the exact one I ordered for my DIL for Christmas. She did not know I had ordered mine and I didn't know she had ordered hers....we ALWAYS end up with the same things because our tastes (and I guess our minds) are so much alike. This has always happened with us.
I have "first right of refusal" on those lamps if she ever wants to get rid of them
Saturday evening we rode around the neighborhood on her golf cart. Her husband bought her the golf cart for her birthday this past year. The cart comes in real handy at ballgames as that's how a lot of folks get into the stadium from wherever we are tailgaiting.
A personalized Auburn tag on the golf cart....have you ever.......?!?!?!?
This was a house we saw in the neighborhood
The house was perfectly situated with a pond in the back....it was sunset and I thought this was so pretty. BTW, Judy says a bachelor lives here...... hmmm, if I was single and looking, I might have stopped to "check him out" !
I did not post a lot of the pictures I took because some did not turn out. Suffice it to say that her home is beautiful. We have our "girly" weekends several times a year with no husbands and really enjoy ourselves. We have so much in common and just enjoy talking and visiting. Last summer she and I started an annual "girl's weekend" where our daughters (who grew up together) and us two went to the beach for the day. This summer we plan on going for a weekend. They take their camper and park it for the summer so we will stay there. I can't wait..... Judy
