We had a wonderful 4th here and I ate way too much :)
Speaking of the fourth of July,
It makes me think of porches.
Southern Porches have so much charm.
The home above was one of many that I snapped while visiting Covington.
Covington is known for their deep southern roots.
You just feel at home here.
I cannot get my mind off this charming town.
From the older homes right down to the new construction,
this town knows how to roll~
I guess that's why Southern Living built their idea home smack dab in the middle.
I thought you would enjoy a tour of a handful of homes close by the idea home.
Picket fences....yes indeed!
Ferns are a must for every southern porch.
Ferns just flourish here...guess it's the humidity :)
Banana tree's frequent here too :)
This home (porch) below just spoke to me..
I'm not sure if it was the creole colors used
the gas lantern...
but I loved them both.
Inside this home had real brick floors in the kitchen!
(I would have taken Ya'll inside but it was a bit private) sorry.
Something else that I saw repeated here a few times...
Can you spot two sets of them here?
I love how they are used here for privacy...
See the sign to the right?
Guess that's what you get when you live next door to the Southern Living Idea Home.
I would Love to know ;)
