Old South Beauty

This is the home of my sister-in-law and her husband, it was built in 1840 and was originally on what used to be the original site of Emory University....The house was supposed to be demolished and then was saved...........It's had several owners over the years, but they bought it and put a lot of love, time and money into it...Now every room looks like it should have in the 1840's...except with electricity and running water......down to the furniture and paintings....it's beautiful.......Scarlett herself couldn't have enjoyed a more beautiful home........We celebrated my mother-in-law's eighty first birthday there this weekend...What a beautiful place for a family gathering.....

What a lovely place to have a birthday party!

I can imagine Gone With The Wind type dresses along the porch and in the yard.

I am sure that they are pleased with the results, too.
