Firefly Cottage

This past weekend I went to Mississippi to see Firefly Cottage, a showhouse which utilized the work of Mississippi artists, designers, and craftsmen. I have seen a lot of showhouses over the years, but this was definitely one of my faves. The million dollar home is situated on a lake in Chestnut Hill, outside of Madison.

If any of you are in the area, it is still open through this coming weekend. You have got to see this home in all of its hand-crafted glory! So proud of my mom and the MS Craftsmen's Guild and Lisa Palmer (lead designer) for creating this stunning home with one of a kind art and craft. Here are some of my fave rooms and details, but there is much more to see so check it out in person if you get the chance.

I don't Maureen - though they had cypress doors and island and concrete top on island, I think. There were too many people in there! It will be featured in our coffee table book one day, though!
