Welcome to our home.  Have a seat and relax.   Are you comfortable?  I love the  dark colors and the rich textures  used in the 18th Century.  I've tried to duplicate the feel of that period.

The chest by the door is a Civil War Field Bar, my pride and joy.  Next to it is the museum eisle that I found and  restored. Of course, that's Phancy's portrait on it.

I love to take "junk" and turn it into something.  I "rescued" my sofa and covered it with brocade fabric.  The coffeetable is a wicker bed tray .  The persian rug picks up the colors in the room.  Baskets sit on the floor throughout the room.

I have found that decorating with wicker is alot of fun.  The stark white of the wicker chairs gives a nice contrast to the burgandy walls and deep colors of the rug.   Throws accent the chairs.

Of course, what's a home without dogs?  The trunk was my grandmother's.  It was brought to Kentucky on a covered wagon from Virgina when she was just a baby.
