Weekend Fun

September 26th, 2011

Hey all, hope you had a great weekend!  I spend it with my good friend and fellow blogger Rhoda visiting from Atlanta playing tour guide and I gave her the whirlwind tour of our region.  Here’s a peek what we’ve been up to for the last few days. 

Any visit to my place begins with a glass of something special in the backyard, time to shake off all of the discomforts of travel and chill, relax, chillax!

I took her on my favorite quick tour of the WC which includes Viansa . . .

Good day, all, how’s your fall?  This morning, Rhoda and I off to the Antique Faire (with a chance of rain, yikes) so we’ll see how far we get.  We’re also working on two mantels this afternoon!  Meanwhile, let’s take a peek at more inspiring projects from this week.

There’s a lovely dining room over at From the Right Bank you won’t want to miss, I am especially smitten with that Barbara Barry chandy and those coffered ceilings.

Cassie makes the case for painting a brick fireplace over at Hi Sugarplum, and isn’t that black and gold mirror a fabulous accent?
