Escape to Georgia.........

Last week, I was lucky enough to get to spend time with one of my oldest, (not age wise, but longest, needed to clarify in case she's reading this) friends at her home in Statesboro GA.  We figured  out that we have been friends for 40 fun filled years, which of course means we are only 41! (lol)!  Even though it was hotter then hades, we had a blast.  We pooled it, shopped and spent time with her adorable grandson.  I took some photos of her home to show you, but there is a story first.  Her daughter, husband and grandson are living there temporarily taking care of the place until they find a home of their own.  My friend is living in KY for the next few years where she is teaching at Eastern KY University.  She lived in KY for years before she moved to GA for a teaching position at GA Southern U.  So,  some of Jen's things are mixed with hers so It's not all her style which is very traditional, you'll get the idea.





Next 2 pics, entryway




Next 4 pics, dinning room







Next 2 pics, living room, the mantle came out of a mansion in Savannah





Family room, just a glimpse, rest has been "kidified", most of stuff shown is Jen's


wet bar in family room 



Yes, these "fish bowls" are real drink glasses from the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville


Kitchen, just showed eating area with Jen's table, my BF took hers to KY





This is their sun room off the kitchen




View from kitchen and sun room to the backyard


Hope you liked the tour, sorry pics weren't better!
Later, will post photos of  some of the houses in her neighborhood and of our shopping trips, in Satesboro and Hilton Head.

Till next time.....

P.S.  This is the house her daughter, Jen, put a offer on while we were there.  It is a 4br 3bth with pool, foreclosure for only $180,000, and in wonderful shape!  It's located in the neighborhood rigtht behind her Mom's, just a golf cart ride away!
We are keeping our fingers crossed that they get it!

Hi, Rebecca!
What a beautiful tradicional house you're showing here.
Your friend is lucky and so is her grandaughter.
Acording to my mother, classic style is eternal, I have to agree.
Now, talking about my post, I posted all the images again, I don't know what happened today, but it's ok now.
Wish you a happy Friday

Thanks for the tour!! I love to see houses in other parts of the country. Sounds like you had a great visit!

I love the sunroom and wet bar in that house!! :o)

And that house her daughter is trying to buy is amazing!! I LOVE the front porch on it. When we were looking here, we tried to find something that had a long front porch, but all the houses we saw that did, had other things wrong with them. So we are hoping on building our own front porch eventually. :o)
