Feature Friday: The Old Post Road

Fellow blogger and artist, Trish from The Old Post Road is another Georgia girl, living in middle GA, near Madison in an 1850’s home.  I love showing old and new houses and Trish’s home is very charming and quaint.  Just the sort of home you would find in a Southern town.  As much as I love modern fabrics and newer homes too, I can definitely appreciate the lure of an old home and keeping them in their tradition with furniture and accessories.   Trish has done a really nice job with hers.

She’s a great artist too and I love her whimsical artwork she sells in her Etsy shop.

Trust in the Lord

A woman of the Word, my kind of girl.

Trish art

So pretty, this bowl of blooming flowers.

our house

Doesn’t Trish’s house look like a postcard from the Old South?  I can see this house sitting back from the road along the rural highways of the South or small town USA.

Our house with bunting2

An 1850’s home has seen a lot of history walking by.

front porch of my house

The front porch is truly a welcoming and serene spot and I bet her kitty loves hanging out there. One thing that tugs at my heart is a swing on a front porch. My Grandma had one on her white clapboard porch just like this and we kids just about wore it out.

Inside the foyer, I’m sure those must be heart pine floors.  Houses like this have so much history and richness to them.

bird wall

I have never lived in an older home like this, but I sure can appreciate them.  A gallery wall of birds in the foyer.

living room 2

Living room with fireplace and white slipcovered chairs.  Trish has a nice mix of modern and vintage.

living room3

Like that Empire sofa in gold, looks right at home in this room.

dining room

These older homes with their high ceilings are grand and spacious.

bookcases

A built-in bookcase comes in handy.

den2

I love the cozy casual feel of this den, with red sofa and all of that mismatched art.  Lovely feel to the room.

kitchen 2

Globes on top of the kitchen cabinets, now what a fun idea that is!

This home just feels charming and welcoming, doesn’t it.  Love that black and white floor.

sams room

Trish has 3 kids and this is her son’s room.

girls room

And the daughter lives pretty in pink.

our house snow

If that is not enough nostalgia, how about this picture postcard look from a snowy winter scene.  Currier and Ives comes to mind.

Hope you enjoyed touring Trish’s lovely mid-Georgia home.  It’s cozy, quaint, and just beautiful.

  1. Thanks for sharing Trish’s home with us.I love old, elegant homes and I especially love the dining room painted yellow. It is formal yet very inviting. I have a friend that just bought a little place near Madison. Love that little town-it’s so charming!

  2. I love EVERYTHING about this house. Totally my style. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thank you, Rhoda! You are sweet!

  4. What great talent! Love the house and the art work.

  5. One of my favorites! I love to visit her blog.

    What a wonderfully charming home! My question… does it regularly snow in Madison, GA or was that an anomaly?

    • HI, Lesli, it definitely does not snow all that much in GA, but we can get a good amount for a day or 2 during the winter months. It’s been awhile since we had a really nasty snow storm.

  7. I love everything about this house, the furnishings and art, the front porch. Now I want a sofa like that! Thank you for sharing. It looks so familiar…is it in downtown Madison?

  8. Absolutely love this, Rhoda. Reminds me of Missouri farmhouses. Beautiful home!

  9. Don’t you just love those old floors? I think it’s so funny that people used to cover them up with wall to wall carpeting!

  10. What a charming and inviting home. I also own an old one, so I fully appreciate the effort that went into it. It’s wonderful how she incorparated so many “modern” DIY touches, yet retained the old feeling. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful! Thanks for the tour, I love old southern homes and Trish’s is perfect!

    Love, love, love Trish and her beautiful family! I taught her girls, but didn’t learn about Trish’s many talents until a few years later. I really enjoyed reading this feature in your blog. Madison is a great place to live; it’s been my home for more than 40 years.

  14. What a wonderful house and home. I love how she decorated. Thanks for sharing with us.

  15. Howdy my Dear! Just catching back up…..I love that showcase new AND old homes….I think the most recent modern home (the cuckoo one) was so FUN…and this historic home….so traditionally wonderful–makes me miss my historic home we had in Olde Towne Manassas, VA!!!
    Have a super blessed holiday weekend! We’re running up to KY to see my parents.
    Love/hugs/blessings,
    Lana
