#HomeTour - To Grandmother's House We Go

My Grandma Fanny is one of the most fabulous women I know. She's a little Sicilian woman, who is as tasteful as Martha Stewart and as sassy as Joan Rivers. (Did I mention she sounds like she's a member of the British Monarchy? Accent and all.) Her home has always been like a museum to me -- I was always being told not to touch or to be careful as a kid and now I understand why. Everything is antique and has value. It's gorgeous and beautiful in every way, just like she is.
Enjoy her
Front entryway done beautifully with Sicilian pottery, seasonal wreath and antique knocker.
A close up of the Sicilian pottery. I love the sunflower!
Here is her 'Summer Wreath' -- Gorgeous!
This knocker has been my favorite since I was 4 years old. Isn't the woman pretty?!
The formal living room. The two porcelain dogs on the mantel are my fave!
Formal living room - Picture 2! The antique armoir reminds me of the one in 'Beauty and the Beast' -- Again, love the porcelain greyhound!
The formal dining room. What a chandelier!
A delightful antique vase of a woman's face acts as the centerpiece in the dining room. So pretty.
Her beautiful bedroom!
A little bedroom sitting area. The antique chair was reupholstered. I love the trim at the bottom Grandma chose!
A dusty pink antique chandelier in the master bath.
The guest bath. Love the gallery wall of vintage prints.
Another gallery wall and antique vanity in the guest room.
A beautiful kitchen arrangement. Love the antique silver and Sicilian ceramic tile behind!
Grandma's balcony.
Her balcony flowers match the color scheme of her cushions!
A little balcony vignette! Love the duck!
An amazing view off the balcony of another condo in her complex. Simple divine.
