Girls Day Out & A Home Tour!!!

Laurie and I had so much fun at the Lone Star Antique Mall last month that we decided to go again. We have planned to try and pick at least one place a month to go shopping and just have a fun day! Well this trip was even more fun than the last trip..... we got to visit with several of the vendors and the owner of the mall again, their all so very sweet.... and Dorothy from The Shabby Y is back, so we had the pleasure of visiting with her also... and had a delishious lunch in their tea room with Denis, be sure to go over and check out Denis's wonderful blog @ http://rubygraces.blogspot.com/

Acutully this post is of Denis's beautiful home that he so sweetly let us take ton's of pictures of. I'll be showing some pictures of the mall a little later!

Denis has a beautiful view of the swimming pool and all of his gorgeous landscaping from his bedroom window!

Denis love's to display art in his home..... This is just one of the many pieces that we saw! When asked what his decorating style was, he replied he just decorates with the things that he loves! I also noticed him saying that some of the pieces he displays where from his grandmother!

Denis uses splashes of red throughout his kitchen!

Dinning room!

This was a fun room.... this is the room that he has alot of the treasures that he will be taking to the mall. Talk about being organized he is, has everything written down and know's all about it!

Not only did we get to shop in this room, but in his garage as well.... Oh what fun!!

This is his beautiful back yard.... love the hot dog sign!!!

Hope you enjoyed the tour, I have lots more pictures to show a little later!!!

Looks like fun! I agree with the comment above..I was thinking he did a great job pulling all his treasures together throughout the home. Love those white furniture pieces and brick hearth in kitchen.

He has a beautiful home. I like his front porch and wish I had one to sit outside on. I enjoyed your wedding pictures from a previous post. Blogger has been nice so far to let me leave comments. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend

It was so much fun to spend the day with you guys...I loved having you in my home. Come back any time...even without your checkbook! Thanks again for the kind words and pictures.

Hello Daphne,
Denis's home is lovely. I drive by so many old beautiful homes and wonder how the own has chosen to decorate their nest. Often times, I am surprised when I venture into a home to find it nothing as I thought it would be. That is the fun part ... seeing the soul of the home ... the true extension of the people living inside those four walls. :)

Thank you for another fabulous tour ... the pool looks refreshing! Love the old shabby swan!

Oh what a great tour. I've never met Denis but I've spent a penny or two with him. (I have the same sectional, must mean I have good taste, LOL) Next time you come to Lonestar let me know, I'd love to come say hi.
