It has been such a long time since I've participated in one of Kelly's Korner hops, but they're always so much fun~ there's something so neat about getting to peak inside other people's homes that you'd never ordinarily have the chance to...or maybe I'm just perpetually nosy, ha! I've discovered some of my very favorite blogs through this, so I'm happy to be participating again, and I'm so glad you've stopped by!
This is to the left of the door as you enter the room- the walls look very white here; they're more 'creamy' in person
Oh drat! My poor, poor naked fireplace looks so...exposed! You'll have to come back and visit because that is our very next project!
This is standing in the kitchen at the doorway ~ that's my childhood Raggedy Ann doll my Mom made sitting fireside
He measured, cut, ironed and hand-stitched the hems, under the watchful eye of Mimi (my Mom) I'm sure! I just love it!
I have several different bunches of flowers for the many holidays throughout the year~ I love the rich, autumn colors!
And here's where it gets more...humbling!
You can see I'm doing away with pretenses here, as I've left out the fitness ball, the stack of books on the coffee table, the messes all over the book shelves~ at least I closed up the armoire!
Those bright little spots in front of the window are one of my middle son's songbird collection and the 'messes' are mountains of photos waiting to be organized somehow (4 kiddos = LOTS of photos!!)
We have yet to settle on a name for him, so he's presently called a different name by each child, ha!
I may not be the best decorator out there, but this room feels like home to us!
In the interest of full disclosure and all that...
Keeping it real! :)
Most of my sewing supplies end up here because I get tired of lugging the stuff back and forth from upstairs!
I'm looking forward to getting some great ideas from everyone! Click here to take a look!
Blessings to you & have a great weekend!
