Misty Mountain

We stayed at the Misty Mountain Bed and Breakfast in Blairsville, Georgia last weekend.
It was originally an old farmhouse. While there we visited with my cousin Kadie, her husband,
and my uncle who were all sweeties.

The entire weekend was terribly cloudy so drats for the photos.

I enjoyed the owners, Peg's, use of navy blue on the porch.

The inside was like a typical home, cosy and warm. The fire was lite and a yummy breakfast waiting. That may not be typical!

The stained glass window was in our spacious room as was this large piece.

The porch was a happening place with wild birds feeding and the Basset Hound, Morgan patrolling. My cousin Kadie and I have many shared memories of childhood summers spent together in the North Carolina mountains. It was such a blessing to see her and my uncle again. Kadie gave me many wonderful family treasures I will be sharing here eventually.

Thanks Bunches Kadie! I Love You!

    Thanks for your nice comment on my post.. to tell you the truth I do not think I could live either in a place that bare like on my pictures, but I guess it is all a decor for the photo shoot.. still the houses are amazing ly beautiful.
