Petticoat Junction As Promised...PART 1

Several of you have commented and emailed me about sharing pics of our faculty/staff Christmas Luncheon at Petticoat Junction. So grab a snack and a cuppa your fav and enjoy a little tour of Petticoat Junction!
First off, Bonnie is the sweetest thing. Petticoat Junction is a dream that is coming true for her. As I mentioned before, Petticoat Junction is located in the sleepy little railroad town of Normandy, Tennessee...an 1892 Victorian beauty...an all inclusive Retreat House...and just about 20 min. from my home. *insert screams here* The owner, Bonnie, a retired teacher herself, had dreamed of opening a "Girls' Retreat" in an old Victorian home. When we learned that our Christmas Luncheon would be held here, we were ecstatic!
So without further ado...here's Petticoat Junction Part 1

The Christmas tree is the first thing you see when you enter Petticoat Junction.
I love the little glitter "P J " letters on the tree!


A shot of the foyer taken from the staircase.
Below is a closeup of a shelf that holds old photos in Mason jars. Cute idea!
The sitting room is to the left of the foyer. French doors in this room lead to the dining area where we were served.
After receiving out wonderful plate, we climbed the stairs to "Inspiration Station" that is the usual place for crafting. However, they had tables set up for us to all eat together.

OMGosh! This "Girly Girl" room is TDF!!! Just take a looksy...


This room will sleep four.

Sweet Dreams For Sure!
