On July 4th my husband and I drove to Greenville, Ohio for his aunts 90th birthday get together. But before I show you my pictures I needed to start out my post with a Ronald Reagan quote.

In the city of Greenville, they had a round a bout and it was lined with flags. A very impressive site.

The family had the birthday get together at the Saint Clair Manor. I could not find much history about it but this: St. Clair Manor Elegance. Convenience. Service. Built during the Victorian Era, the St. Clair Manor offers the elegance of days gone by with today’s modern conveniences. In this historic mansion, visitors enjoy formal sitting and dining rooms with originial woodwork and ironwork as well as stained-glass windows and gas fireplaces. The Italianate architecture offers the perfect setting for social gatherings, corporate events, weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversary celebrations, open houses and holiday events. Situated in the historic downtown Greenville district, St. Clair Manor is within walking distance of restaurants, shops and entertainment.

A close up of the lions head. I am not convinced it is real.

The living room, lots of wood and I think the stairway is quite pretty.

A better look at the stairway. Pretty garland adorning the railing.

Quite a large fireplace.

I always enjoy stained glass windows.

The grounds were nicely groomed and the tent was a nice place to have the guests sit. The weather was perfect, warm but not too much and humidity was low.

The working, 3 tiered fountain was very, very nice. My husband and I were getting ready to depart. We were having friends over for a cookout in the evening, along with swimming and watching the fireworks all around us. It was a great holiday weekend! I hope you did too and lets have a great week ahead! Thanks for stopping.

 

around the little town

I took a 40 minute walk to and from the dentist this morning with my camera to catch a few pictures of the little town I live in. This airplane is at the entrance to the community park. I know nothing about it but think it is pretty neat.

Across from the airplane is the fire-station. The flags were flying proudly today with a gusty wind.

The colors in this flower box are beautiful! The downtown area is tiny with a bank, pizza place, an insurance company, a hair salon and a flower shop.

Pretty landscaping one of the side streets.

A white puffy peony.

I thought this fairy tree mushroom house was funny. See the elf head?

This house is neat. I had never noticed the stone fireplace, just the stone porch. It has a foundation made from stone also.

Then back a my house I am showing the teal and aqua arraignment that I put together. I am changing some of my colors in my house to that scheme. That little round vase I just picked up at a recent gift shop. Put my little bleeding heart stem in it, too cute. I haven’t put anything in my teal frame yet, I like the paper that came with it. Hope you went on a nice walk and as always….Thanks for stopping!
