Name that place.


Anyone who knows me. well, knows me well. Knows I have a very strong affinity for old architecture. In fact I collect old photos of them when I can find them. I scour historical society online libraries. and even check ebay for them. They blend very well with my skeleton key collecting which number well over 500. (they even won me a prize once. that an other story). I was doing a little research and found this little gem. If you can name this famous home, and it is famous. It was on TV quite a lot in the late 80's. Name it and I will let you have my new Freebie kit early before I release it to the world.

Isn't this the home from Designing Women? I am almost ashamed to say I used to watch it :)

Hey, by the way I think the house is located in Little Rock, AR. I live in North West AR now but when the TV show was first on I lived just 45min. south of Little Rock. (I'm not sure, I could be wrong, that was a few years ago).
I also love architecture, I love to travel all over and take pictures of old historical homes and buildings, even old barns and churches.
