My Friend's House ~ Part I

My dear and talented friend, Liz Snow has graciously allowed me to share a little photo tour of her beautiful home.

Come on in.
Let's have a seat in the sunroom and chat for a while!

I met Liz a few years ago when I stopped by her yard sale.
I thought I was in Heaven when I saw all the fabulous vintage treasures displayed in her yard, and we quickly became friends. It's wonderful to have a friend who shares your tastes and interests.

She recently redecorated her foyer. I love this little desk that she found at our favorite "hunting ground". The picture above it is a sketch of the house presented to her by its previous owner.

Don't you love this old telephone!

Let's move along and check out the living room. It is such a beautiful room! I wish my photography did it justice!

The day of our photo shoot was a gorgeous sunny day,
but unfortunately, the sun wrecked havoc with the camera.

Liz and I share a passion for old rose covered china.

She has a large and beautiful collection!

I also think her cherub pediment is to-die-for! It's huge...much larger than you can tell from the photo.

I love this shabby, chippy bureau!

While the entire house is gorgeous, the dining room is one of my favorite rooms.

It is home to many of her scrumptious collections.

This cut glass collection is kept in a built-in original to the house.

Liz also has a very large and impressive collection of art pottery.

But I think my favorite thing here is the little cherub on top of the pottery display. I love that tiny crown Liz found for her!

Another of my favorite things is the Marie Antoinette inspired pillow!

Of course, this china cabinet is pretty impressive too!

It is also massive!

It houses one of Liz's sweetest collections...Some beautiful vintage bride and groom cake toppers. I love how she's displayed them with the old doll heads and pretty china.

Last, but certainly not least,I just had to get a shot of her sparkling chandelier!

And that concludes today's tour.

Well, almost.
This is a sneak peek into the kitchen.
I hope you'll check back next week when we visit the remainder of the house for another White Wednesday.

Until next time,

I'm linking up with "White Wednesday" at Faded Charm.
Come on over and check things out!


  1. Dear Sheilla: Please tell you friend that I absolutely LOVE HER HOUSE!!!!!!!!! I don't even know where to begin because it is all so delicious but I particularly ADORE her wedding cake topper collection. I've just started collecting them (does 1 constitute a collection?) and hope to find more. They are very pricey here because they're so sought after. Thank you for the lovely tour and I can't wait to continue it next week.

  2. Lisa, Those wedding cake toppers are scrumptious aren't they! I'm so glad you enjoyed the "tour" and will certainly pass your comments along to Liz :)

  3. I love the art pottery. hugs♥olive

  4. No wonder she's your friend!! What a place to hang out!! Just gorgeous - I could wander around looking at all her great stuff for days. Thanks for sharing & Happy WW!

  5. Wowsers! That is beautiful! Isn't it great to have friends like that? I really love color, but my house it gradually becoming whiter and whiter! I hope you'll follow me back to my blog--I've got a fun White Wednesday post of one of my favorite haunts!

  6. Thanks for the wonderful house tour-so enjoyed it!

  7. Sheilla, please tell Liz that I am in awe of her beautiful home. A home is where the heart is and it is certainly obvious that Liz has a beautiful home and a beautiful heart. You are very fortunate to have Liz as a good friend. It must be tons of fun to go treasure hunting together. I can't wait to see the rest of Liz's home. Please give Liz my best and thank her for the grand tour.
