Special “thank you” to homeowners for gracious entertaining during Christmas tours
The county tour covered a portion of southwest Marshall County where the highly diverse terrain is unique and interesting with its black lace trees and country lanes with the greenest rye grass.
Two of the houses, Tallaloosa and Galena, had Christmas themes that prompted memories of earlier times. They emphasized the warmth of cozy homes of long ago. Mr. and Mrs. Fitch didn’t let us leave without giving each of us a piece of pecan pie. Also heavy on the Southern charm were Mr. and Mrs. Tubby Gresham, who gave personal attention to all who came. Cedar Oaks commanded a hilltop and was surrounded by an immaculate lawn. Tom Honecker carried the grandeur through the front door and punctuated it with a charming Christmas tree. At Solitude, home of Hank and Pam Thomas, you found yourself in the splendor of the 21st century. Every room had a Christmas tree to dramatize a family member’s interest to combine with the textures and colors of the house. On the city tour, Finley, home of Audubon director Madge Lindsay, was blending the old with the new and the outcome was wonderful.
At Livingston, home of Mr. and Mrs. Heath Barnett, the decor was a marvelous rendition of traditional mixed with the space age that denoted gaiety and happiness.
Featherston was exquisite and the beautiful decorations were breathtaking. Polk Place was delightful and something good to remember forever. Walter Place had a 16-foot tree snuggled in the arms of the spiral star, which was decorated with ornaments from all over the world and gorgeous decorations were throughout the house. These houses belong to Mr. and Mrs. Michael Lynn. Crump Place, owned by David Person, had a piano player and served refreshments to everyone who came in.
The heroes and heroines of this place are the noble men and women who opened their homes, after going to all the expense of decorating and preparing for the visitors. A special “thank you” goes to: David Person, Madge Lindsay, Anita and Heath Barnett, Joan and Bill Fitch, Tom Honecker, Frances and Tubby Gresham, Pam and Hank Thomas, and Jorja and Michael Lynn.
