More Fun To Be Had

After a slow morning Rich and I headed up to Kernersville, NC to take a tour of Körner's Folly.

This house is actually a big Victorian remuddled house. It is billed as one of the weirdest houses(22 rooms on 7 different levels),it is supposed to be haunted and it contains the first private theater in a home in the US. So on with the tour....

The house was initially a bachelor pad and a carriage way ran through the middle dividing the stables and the house. Then the bachelor settled down and the changed everything over to make one odd house.

These are children's play rooms. Ivan barely stand up!

Beautiful fireplaces. Do you see the bat?

A huge reception room on the second floor.

Here is the theater up on the top floor.

The walls all have painted murals.

It is a very cool space.

Pokey staircases.

The library. Of course everything seemed more cozy since the house was decorate for the holidays.

The 4 seater out back. Lol.
Rich and I really enjoyed the tour. Man, this would be an awesome place to play hide and seek in!
So then we found a great local place for hot dogs, thank you Urban Spoon app for helping me out.

After lunch we headed back towards Greensboro to shop. We timed it right so that we could cross one of the movies we wanted to see off our list. We saw Lincoln. What amazing performances.
So back home again. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. It will be quiet here. Rich and I will go to my Mom's on Christmas Day.
I hope that you have wonderful celebrations with family and friends over the next couple of days!
