Feature Friday: The Breakers in Newport

Happy Friday to you all!  This week's Feature Friday is a little different from the norm, because we just got back from Cape Cod and visited Newport, RI, where we saw some incredible mansions from the Gilded Age.  This adventure was one of my favorites from our trip and I can't wait to share The Breakers with you, the largest of the Newport summer cottages.

Charming Houses of Cape Cod

I'm so glad you all enjoyed the Fall leaf pictures from our trip to Cape Cod.  There was certainly plenty of it on our recent vacation and another thing that I couldn't get enough of is the houses of Cape Cod.  I've always been drawn to this type architecture.  We have a few of these houses in Georgia, but they are few and far between.  They always draw me in, with their cute and charming style. … [Read more...]

There are some advantages of getting older, right?  Really and truly, I'm so grateful that I get to do this job of a … [Read more...]

Mountain Houses and Memories

Today I want to share a story with you.  A story about 5 siblings from Florida and how they ended up building 5 mountain houses in the Smoky Mountains of NC.  This story begins back in the 1960's and goes into the late 70's. Back before cell phones, the internet, and most of the technology we have at our fingertips today, my family spent a lot of time in the NC mountains, away from it all in … [Read more...]
