Our Guest Bedroom

I just added the plate rack and the canopy to this room. This is where I hang out and go on my computer. I am busy getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow! Happy Thanksgiving to all! Have a wonderful holiday!

Master Bedroom

Here are some recent pictures of my Master Bedroom. The table at the end of the bed I made by marrying two pieces together. The wicker is Victorian looking and loaded with character. Tomorrow I will begin my Thanksgiving meal and set the table. The kids are making placecards for everyone! I keep thinking of all the wonderful blessings we have, particularly here in the U.S. I have traveled abroad and lived abroad as well and have come home realizing that we are SO blessed. We have SO much to be thankful for! I thank God every day for all the wonderful things He has blessed me with. I also am thankful for the brave ancestors I had who came here and struggled so that I might have a life like this. Wow!!!

My Laundry Room

Welcome to my Laundry Room. It's on the second floor, which is really nice! I used to have the machines in the basement and now having it near the bedrooms is such luxury! I do SO much laundry - ahh the life of a mom of four! This room usually has lots of piles of work for me!

Well I'm headed back to the laundry room! Enjoy your day!

Brittany and Bridget's Room

This is Brittany and Bridget's room. They are my two oldest daughters - a 6th grader and a 3rd grader.

Cute slippers!

This picture was painted by a young girl with nail polish! Even though it's a Yorkie, I still think it looked like our Daisy dog!

It's a girly, pink room!

Maddie and Elizabeth's Room

I'm going to try to take you on a tour of my second floor. We'll start in one of the girls' bedrooms - this is Maddie and Elizabeth's room.

Some vintage toys, too.

Top of the dresser. I think I forgot to take a picture of the hutch in there. I also have an old dining room hutch filled with momentos.

This is the chair I found in the alley! It is a little shabby but it I thought the perfect size for my girls! See the Portie doggie in the background? It's supposed to be "Bo" the Obama dog but we think it's our Dover!

Here are their beds. Lots of quilts and pillows, some vintage.

Miss Maddie's bed. She is our 6 year old in 1st grade.

I thought I'd use this cradle as a book holder. They don't really play with it.

Miss Elizabeth's bed. She is three.

The nightstand. I will continue my second floor tour of my house soon! I am looking forward to Thanksgiving next week. A break from school around here for the kids! That'll be fun! Then Christmas decorating can begin! (Although I think it's fine to start now~) Hugs to all - Ann

Time to Rearrange Again

My dear husband has been complaining that he does not like my new furniture arrangement in the family room as he cannot see the t.v. in the comfortable way he is used to. Although I like the way it's arranged, I have to redo it so he can be happy. I'm off to do some creative rearranging today...and might as well clean while I'm at it!
