She features Historic Marietta homes, Charleston homes, Downtown Woodstock homes include farmhouse style homes, cottage style and old southern mansions - we love them all!

Southern Home Tour ... 

Southern Home Historic Marietta home 

We start our southern home tour in beautiful Marietta, GA.  Like many Marietta homes the Historic James T. Anderson House goes all out for the 4th! We love the classical details on this home - ionic columns, dental molding and that gorgeous wrap around porch!One thing that is consistent about southern homes is their beautiful front porches. We love the details on this one.
