I thought that it would be fun to play a little game.  I am going to show you an exquisite home that belongs to a celebrity.  It is currently for sale for 12.5 million dollars.  See if you can guess who lives here.  The answer comes near the middle of the post.

This is the main house.   Note the palm trees….must be in the South.

Of course I am crazy about the sea shell encrusted table.  Could be near the water.

Who lives in the South near the water, and would have a beautiful kitchen and a home that screams “Southern charm?”

No center island.  Instead, she chose to have a long farmhouse table.

I want a walk in pantry.  Then, I could buy even more dishes.

Create and be happy!
