The afternoon will be sure to fill you with happiness and cheer for the holiday season.
Rex and Carla Henry are offering up two sites for this year's home tour. Their wooded property offers a home and a rustic cabin to tour.
The Henrys use their ample property for entertainment and relaxation. The log cabin was built around 25 years ago and was the original home built on the property.
A newly installed flagstone walk leads to the front porch. Care was taken to match the walk to the stone of the cabin's foundation. The cabin was built from reclaimed beams of an old barn.
The Henrys use the cabin for family gatherings. The dining area offers a large table and a Hoosier cabinet. The cabinet was handed down from Carla's grandparents.
Large kitchen counters make entertaining easy here. On Christmas Eve, the couples' grown children stay on the property. The family serves a big bunch on Christmas morning for all to enjoy.
The living room offers an inviting sofa. The sofa sits in front of a stone hearth. Above the mantel is a large evergreen wreath.
The living room holds many pieces of furniture made by members of Rex's family. The chest, cane chair, and buffet table add to the warm feeling of the cabin. A roll top desk, in the corner, belonged to Carla's grandfather.
Pictures of the owners and their daughter's weddings are framed on the dresser, in sepia tones.
While returning to a main level, make sure to peak over the railing at the ledge above the fireplace. This is a great view to see tools and firearms that have been handed down in Carla's family.
Be sure to take a look at the antique family pictures arranged in the living room.
The homes of Susie Freeman 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.
