And look at these extraordinary walls! The homeowner wanted to keeps all the layers of paint, so they were sanded and sealed with a lime wash.

Wow, Lisa that is one gorgeous home and has so much character. I love the front porch. It resembles the one I have found on the internet that I like in Maryland for our upcoming move. I just posted a picture of it too. What a coincidence.

I hope you are enjoying the summer.
Stay cool! ~Melissa

Thanks for checking it out Lisa. It's funny how much it reminded me of this home you have shown.

The drink mixes were right next to the Crystal Light. I hope you find them. They are very tasty and delish. :)

Oh girl, my heart just dropped when I saw this! I was in Prospect Hill several years ago during the annual Edisto Fall Historical Tour. The rooms were all empty and still being restored, and the owners were living in the basement, but it was (and is) the most charming basement I've ever seen. You can just feel the warmth in that place. It totally changed my way of thinking about what makes a house a home. Thank you for the heads up - I'll be drooling over these photos for a long time to come!
