pretty home

Steve and I stopped by a craft sale at a lovely home in Henrico Va.. A Georgian style home built in 1952 on mountain road.  Mountain road as it is called because it was the main road taken to the mountains of Virginia.
George Washington's military headquarters in Newburg, New York is what this home is modeled after. (info taken from their blog site)
Simple green wreaths adorned with a velvet red fluffy  bows. I think that is what I will put on my wreaths at the windows this year.

I didn't stand back far enough to capture the whole house for a picture.  Ground was wet after some drizzling rain earlier, so I got several pictures up close.

Steve purchased this pretty bluebird painting for his office

Outside vendor selling barbecue, so good.

  1. Beautiful building! That barbecue looks tasty.

  2. Betsy, that is one beautiful house.Was the inside gorgeous and was it all decorated for Christmas? I love those simple wreaths in the windows too. I bought enough to do every window last year at a store in Santa Cruz. The only thing they are ivy instead of pine, but with a red bow they look really pretty at the windows and with a candle inside on the window sill, even better..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudy

  3. What a lovely home. I like the wreaths on the windows, too. It's hard to believe how close the holidays are. The painting your husband bought is beautiful! And that barbeque looks delicious. Looks like a lovely day, Betsy! ♥

  4. I love the way it looks. Simple but oh so elegant. You should do your house this way.


  5. Que linda casa. Adorei ver as coroas natalícias nas janelas. Bom fim de semana. Abraço.

  6. I don't stop in often enough, life has been so hectic, but I always enjoy your posts. I love the wreath decor, simple and yet gorgeous.
