Where did you get that chair? That is a question that we get asked quite often. We actually inherited the chair when we purchased the bed and breakfast. I call it my “Edith Ann” chair, which all of my older guests understand but the younger ones give me a puzzled […]

Who’s been sitting in my chair!!!


“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” My Granny Holloway was always telling us that you never really would get away with doing the wrong thing because God was watching and would make sure you learned from your wrong. It has always kept me on the […]
