Hi . My name is Stephanie and I am new to being an author on a blog. I have been an avid follower of many decorating blogs and have become, well addicted. I have found inspiration from many of these sites and thought I would give this a try.

I am a Mom of two wonderful young men. I am married to an amazing man who is in law enforcement. Which is why I named my blog No Place Like Home. After a long, intense day we all like to come HOME where we can feel safe and release the pressures of the day.

Welcome and buckle up for the ride :)

My Home and Its Neighbors - Part I

Today was another fine Spring day here in Millersburg.  The sun is shining and there is a hint of Spring in the air.  A walk was in order for the end of the day. While walking, I thought how lucky I am to live in a nice, homey town like this.  Growing up here I did not appreciate the style of the town and its homes.  As with age comes wisdom and appreciation.  I would like to share with you some of the beautiful homes, and churches of our area (Churches, Part II).  Please forgive the photography as I have a very inexpensive camera and do the best I can with the camera.

The "Bug Man" home


The Carey House

The Engle Home

The Money Home

The Edininger Home
(unsure who lives there currently)

Formerly The "Dr. Welsh" home, now the McDowell home

Our humble abode.
(Which I would like to point out, in my opinion, it is much prettier when the gardens are in full bloom and not just dirt.  I look forward to sharing the flowers and greenery when they are in bloom.)
Can you imagine what the expense would be to replace these homes with the same quality and workmanship?  These are truly fine homes.  There are many more in the area, these are just a few I pass when I walk in the evening.
I hope you have enjoyed some of the beautiful homes of our area.  Come back tomorrow to appreciate some of the beautiful churches and massive doors of the town.


  1. This is true! We take old homes for granted! Every day when I look at my woodwork (and it's dust) I try to remember that I wanted an old home for its character! I love how you named them by the owners- and btw, the Edinger home is now the "Root" home. That is their last name!

  2. Looks like a wonderful place to live!
    I'll be back.
