House Tour – Random Stranger

So, this funny thing happened and I have a bonus house tour to show you! A house tour of a complete stranger!  Odd, right? But soooo fun!!!

Great Village Home TourLast month when Janice and I hit the 75k West Cholchester Yard Sale for the At Home! magazine, we stopped at this sweet yellow house, because, well, they were having a yard sale.  Last year Michael and I stopped and chatted with the homeowner for a bit and I bought a chair { that I still haven’t finished… } so I thought we’d stop to see what treasures we might find this year.  Well, we were quite surprised when Robert told us to go in the house and Rodger would show us around!

So, let’s go in and have a look!

Here’s a corner of the Dining Room, wishing I had snapped a picture of the one detail that really struck me, though.  They had an old window frame suspended from the ceiling, with some glass in, some glass out, with the chandelier hanging through the middle of it and then branches woven in and out. IT was so neat and added such detail to the ceiling!  I was too busy oohhing and ahhing over it, I forgot to take a picture and it would be perfect for a little reveal I’ll have for you later this week!

As much as I loved this house, this simple little chaise done in what looks like an old quilt, tucked in a quiet corner at the back of the house was probably my favorite. See? I could spend an afternoon with a good book there quite easily!

Now on to the upstairs!  This first picture is of the little area that sits above the the front entry, love the chippy cabinet! Oh, and those curtain panels!  Yeah, and that blue bird house!

And this spare room?  I could stay a night or two or ten tucked in under the eaves!

And the mural in the master bedroom? How amazing is that?  Perfectly matched with sunflower bedding!

Red claw foot tub? Yes please!

Isn’t this just the sweetest house?  Every last corner was perfectly laid out and very welcoming.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the welcome we received when all we wanted was to shop their yard sale.  I felt like I was being welcomed into the house of old friends.  And I guess, new friends eventually become old friends, right?

Here’s to blossoming friendships of the complete strangers along the yard sale route!!
