Today Donna Starkey (my BFF) and I went on the annual Bath Ohio home tour. Donna has been going every year for the last 21 yrs and I've been lucky enough to go with her on many thanks to her "birthday gift" tickets for me! Thanks Donna! It was a beautiful spring day...bright blue skies and 80 degrees. After a quick little breakfast we boarded the tour bus, or in this case a mini van and headed out to see the beautiful, jaw dropping, funny, eclectic, and always inspiring homes. This little screened in number sits in the back of the first home we visited and it is right by the river that flows behind the property. Very cute! We weren't allowed to take pics inside the homes so we had to settle for all outside shots. One of the pics below has Donna with a fountain/fire thingie going on. Many art works and sculptures were featured inside and out in this place. It was very modern, not my style, but I couldn't figure out what made this my least fav until I heard that no one actually lives here much...it's a second and very seldom used home. It felt that way..pretty but not homey. I liked most of the other ones because they had the feel of "real, lived in" but also pretty homes. Some place you could kick back and have fun! Well, today I did have a fun and girlie day. We had a lovely lunch included in the tour and I had to laugh because I usually get a pic of the food, but I forgot! I guess I was just too hungry. It was good though..Yum!
The last three pics are actually from the creepy woods...It's amazing how it is now so green and lush and just a few weeks ago, very barren...this white bush is one of my favs. I'm not sure the name of it, but it's so pretty. (So are you Eddy!) Although it doesn't rival the beautiful manicured lawn and gardens I visited today, it's still my fav place to be...HOME SWEET HOME!
