one last look

This is our last stop on the tour through Lisa's house. Kitchens are always the first place I go when looking at houses online. I think you'll enjoy looking at hers, too.

I am partial to the beautiful windows here in the eating area...and what a pretty view, too! To me there's just no such thing as too many windows or too many trees. I think that's why I love her house and North Carolina. It is beautiful!








Hasn't this been fun? It sure has been for me. Hope you have enjoyed it, too.

Ok, I have to tell you - I had such a great time last night.

If you are coming to Chicago and you want a fun night out on the town, it would be great if you could meet up with my cousin. She's one of those "who's who" people. She's got the connections. She's a girl who (as my aunt said last night) does things right.

Last night at the theatre we had front row seats (dead center, no less!) I could peer into the orchestra pit and see all the musicians up close. And our tickets gave us VIP access to this special room below the theatre where we could enjoy complimentary appetizers, desserts, and drinks before and during intermission. There were a couple of private bathrooms there, too.(That alone made the passes worthwhile, you know how the ladies' room line gets during intermission.)

But enough about that - most important is me telling you about the show. It was terrific! Truly one of the best stage productions I've ever seen. Fabulous! The story, the actors, the costumes, the songs, the dancing! Oh my GOSH. It was incredible. We all loved it, and the entire audience was up on its feet screaming and clapping as soon as the curtain call started. I almost cried then, as I was clapping along. That's how much I loved it. If you ever have an opportunity to go, I highly highly highly highly recommend it. I would love to go back - I'd go back in a heartbeat tonight. *it was absolutely fantastic* ! ! !

Wow! Her home is absolutely gorgeous. The windows are stunning, as is the rest of it. Is that granite in her kitchen, or formica? I love how it looks.
Thanks, Sue

Hi Meg,
I hope it is okay, but I'm adding your s-i-l's kitchen to my idea file. I love the island with the eating counter/ cooktop. I totally want one of those. If our kitchen remodel ever happens I will be sure to pull these pics out and say "make it look like this". Thanks for sharing her beautiful home and some much needed inspriation :0)

Meg said...

Laurie Anne - sounds great to me, save away. I hope your remodel goes well...when that day comes. Maybe you'd be able to share with us your pictures one day?

Take care,
Meg

I loved the house tour!!! I am one of those people who follow real estate online so I can browse through homes to get ideas! We are trying to decorate our new home but I tend to get overwhelmed by the choices. I had considered this green in my kitchen...now more that I see it.

Lisa's house is beautiful. Thank you so much for the tour. I especially loved the master bedroom and the kitchen but it was all lovely.
