I've shared a little about our recent Parade of Homes tour. This post is a bit more about those things I noticed on the tour.

Kari Anne's post at Thistlewood Farms.) I'm not a fan of the TV above the mantel because I think it gives the feeling of sitting on the front row in a movie theatre. It seems like one needs to lean back in the seat and look up toward the ceiling. I prefer having the TV lower on a cabinet or mounted on the wall sort of at eye level when seated on a sofa or chair.
These garage doors were painted and had a style to look more like old-time wooden doors, too. I took the photo, however, to remind me of the beautiful way to style containers in the fall. This would work great for that time when the summer flowers are looking a bit bedraggled but it is too early or different than the pansies that will perk up the containers throughout the winter.
As you can tell, from my multiple posts, I got lots for my money on our quick afternoon tour of the Parade of Homes here!
