{Back to the Tour........}

I'm finishing up the tour today from my Aunts home.

I have always loved these copper fixtures. Isn't that little hand soap dipenser next to it cute!

I really think my Aunt has an eye for arranging things, I really like all the colors in this fun stuff!

I had too show off these cute bracelet's. My aunt found out on Mothers Day that her daughter was expecting. A big surprise to everyone, including my cousin and her hubby. Anyhow, they've been making these cute little bracelet's!
And these cute little pacifier holders. Click on the picture for a better view. I think I might try making a couple of these myself.
She has a set of four of these cool vintage chairs on her deck. She painted them black and then recovered them in this cute toile fabric.
Ok, this is the only picture I got from her bedroom. I might have to sneak back someday, because there is lots more to show. I just had to show what she did here. She had a hole drilled in her bed posts so she could use this dowel to show of this beautiful piece of tapestry. And for all you tassel lovers out there, don't you love these that are hanging on the posts!

I had to show this beautiful molding. This is the dining room leading into the entrance way/living room.
Isn't this chandelier beautiful. Whats that? You want to win a beautiful chandelier??? Well click on the button to the left for a chance to win one of your own.
I love, love, love, this carpet she's used on her steps. And the wood floor is beautiful!!!
Ok, my Aunt is a beautician, and this is in her shop downstairs. Don't you love this cozy little fireplace. Those pictures are of her two beautiful grandchildren.
Cute little shelf. Her prices are displayed in that little frame, very classy looking I think!
I wish soooo bad this picture would have turned out better. She's displayed some antique curling irons and wave irons in this shadow box. I also love this iron work above it.
Don't you love that picture. In this shadow box (once again a bad picture) She has some antique shaving tools.
Want a cheap way to dress up a bathroom. Here she has just covered these toilet paper rolls in some pretty tissue paper. I'm afraid at my house, my kids would run out and unroll one of these little beauties!
I had too show off this pretty medallion (that's probably not what it's called). Once again I wish there was a before pictures. I'm going to have to tell her to start taking before and after pictures for me. When she bought this is was an ugly orange. She painted it black and rubbed on a little gold. I LOVE IT!!!
Well, I hope you've enjoyed the tour! A big thanks to my Aunt for letting me show off her beautiful home. And for letting my daughter have her birthday party over at her pool last night. Like a dork, I didn't take any pictures. Can you believe it, me, the addicted picture taker, didn't take pictures of my daughters birthday part, I'm such a dork!!!
Have a great weekend, And I'll see ya Monday for the start of my home tour (ugh, what was I thinking?).
