This is a snapshot of my girlfriend Kristy's house. Hers in one of 4 houses that will be featured in the Holiday Home Tour benifiting California Baptist University nursing program. Put on by the "Women Of Vision" . A group of gals who are dedicated to raising funds to benifit these young christian students who have a heart to serve. I have been working all week on 2 home banners for her house. The first is Christmas banner that reads "Joy", and the other was a monogram of her little girls initials for her bedroom. I've been working like a crazy woman all week, and Thursday was the day I would run over after picking the kids up from school and present them to her and get a sneak peak of the house. I worked right up to the min. as usual, grabbed my camera and ran to get the kids. Of course I was in too big a hurry to grab the actual camera bag, just the camera, which of course had the WRONG lens on it! so bear with these pictures. They are not at all what I envisioned for the photo shoot but you'll get the idea of how incredibly gorgeous her house is. OH, and keep in mind I'm trying to stay out of the way of construction men ( see the picture above), interior decorators, photographers, the house keeper, and about 5 board members of the tour.
Were inside, now lets look around.....
while a pair of green velvet chairs sit on each side of a beautiful antique server.
straight ahead is the charming little hallway that leads to the family room...
This is in the family room just to the left of the tree. I adore the leaded glass windows that are throughout her home. Hmm I know how to solder, I wonder how hard it would be to do all my windows? LMBO There were a lot of other angles I would have loved to show you, but I was trying just to stay out of everyones way.
This huge window is at the first flight landing on your way up the stairs. YES! these windows open out.
This sweet display is what you see on the wall when you arrive on the second floor. It proudly displays photos of all her children and antique silver rattles! Lets go peek in Lanie's room.
Fit for a princess!
An antique doll house makes the perfect side table. This will have to be a 2 part post. I have more to show and tell you about later tonight. In the meantime, I'm off to the barn sale!! Yeppie.
