What’s on tap for you this weekend? I’m going inside this gorgeous home. It’s the oldest documented antebellum mansion in Alabama. Every year, the town of Twickenham, which is Huntsville’s historic district, opens several homes to the public. For a mere $17, I get to tramp through about six beauties, peering at people’s antiques, going gaga over their renovations and views, and wishing like heck I had the kind of money to afford one of these babies.

Ah well, at least I get to go inside! I think it’s a cool thing that people open these old homes to the public. The tour raises awareness for preservation of old homes, and shows people just what treasures we have still in the South today. Read more about the Huntsville Tour of Homes here.

Hope you have a great weekend! Once I finish that tour, I’ll be writing like crazy!
