When I told Susan we wanted to feature her home in the regional publication I write for, she said that I needed to come take a look to see if it was really something we would be interested in. If there is one thing I've learned over the last 10 years about writing home stories, it's that when someone says their house may not be something I'm interested in, it will be everything I hoped for and so much more!
Susan has had previous homes featured in national magazines, so she's no stranger to putting her house on display. But she described the home she shares with her wonderful husband Don, as eclectic, quirky, and something that has developed over time with several major additions. Hello?!...eclectic, quirky, added on to, these are all words that are music to my house loving ears!
Because the magazine story hasn't gone to print, I can't give you a full tour of their gorgeous and conversation worthy house, but I can give you a peek at some of the very cool accessories and antiques that fill it.
Susan has been collecting antiques for years. She started going to flea markets and antique auctions as a teenager. One of her passions is collecting children's furniture and old spice cabinets like the ones pictured above.
I'm linking up for Furniture Feature Friday over at Miss Mustard Seed's.
