The home of Susie Freeman is one of four stops on the 2010 Tri Kappa Home Tour, set to take place Sunday.
Christmas is coming up just around the corner and it wouldn't be Christmas without the annual Tri Kappa Home Tour.

One home being featured this year is Susie Freeman's. The inviting home is located in St. Andrew's Glen.

Just inside the door is the family Christmas tree. Snowmen and Santa ornaments hold pictures of family members.

The living room features cozy seating and a trey ceiling overhead. The walls hold framed cross-stitched artwork made by the homeowner. Stencils add character to this room and throughout the home. A Tell City hutch sits against one wall.

Down the hall, you will find the guest bedrooms. The first bedroom is referred to as the "Grandma Room."

The rose, tulip and violet bed cover is hand cross-stitched and quilted. Pictures of Susie's grandchildren are found here.

The second guest room is decorated with lighthouses. Pictures of lighthouses visited by the homeowner and hand-stitched decorations are found on the walls. The bed is topped with a lighthouse comforter. An adjacent bathroom continues the lighthouse theme.

Tucked away in the hallway is an antique desk. The desk belonged to Dr. Bond of Clay City.

The kitchen is a cook's dream. Creamy cabinets offer tons of storage and countertops will wow. The island is topped with granite. The back splash features a basket border. Longaberger baskets are placed above the cabinets. The dining area is adjoining and features Tell City furniture. A built-in home office is found near the dining area.

Beyond the dining room is a newly added family room. The room was added to accommodate large family gatherings. Welcoming furniture sits in front of a wall mounted flat screen television. A Christmas tree in the corner is adorned with Longaberger baskets. Longaberger baskets are sprinkled throughout the home.

The last stop in this home is the master bedroom and bath. The bedroom also holds an interesting trey ceiling. A quilted bedspread tops the bed. Next door is the bathroom. A double sink and an ample whirlpool tub give the room a spa feeling. A walk-in closet is found here as well.

The homes of Rex and Carla Henry and Greg and Carrie Lovett will also be featured on the tour.

The Home Tour will take place from 1-5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 5. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at the main branch of Riddell National Bank or by calling 448-9620 or 442-1300.
