My Home Sweet Home

January 30, 2009

When we are driving at night, I love it when people have their curtains open in their homes with the lights on inside. That means I might be able to sneak a peak inside their house and see what it looks like! Is that wrong? I just love seeing how other people live!

Since I love peeking inside other people’s homes, I thought I’d share some little favorite spots that I have around my own house.

So, take off your shoes and come inside!

This is the front entrance hallway where I have a little photo gallery hung on the wall. They are mostly photos we’ve taken from trips we’ve gone on…

This is the original built-in corner cabinet in the dining area of the kitchen. I love the old glass door knobs and the storage it gives me…
Here’s a memo board that I made for our office. I love the combination of toile fabric and the painted white frame (it used to be an ugly brass picture frame)…

Here’s a barn that a relative made for me out of old barn wood and slate…

I love this mug holder that I got at IKEA – the mugs were bought on sale at the Pottery Barn outlet and they’ve been used quite a bit this winter…

I have this old drawer that I made into a shelf hanging in my foyer. I have a thing for graphic plates and cups…

My fireplace mantel (I just haven’t been able to part with the Christmas lights yet)…

The cozy yard sale chair that I adore…

Some things I have displayed on the built-in bookcase in the family room…

I just love scrumptious blankets and pillows! And I have loads of them!

My bed, restful and relaxing…

A pretty little plate that I found at Goodwill. It’s setting on my dresser in my bedroom and I use it to hold my watch, perfume and misc. jewelry. By the way, my favorite perfume right now is Lauren by Ralph Lauren. Hubs bought it for me a few years ago, and I was shocked that I actually liked it! I’m usually really, really picky when it comes to fragrances, but this one is perfect!

Little Avery’s bed – I like it better than my own, I think!

But I must say, as much as I love all those little “things” in my house, this handsome guy would have to be my favorite…
and let’s not forget about these two messy-haired kiddos…Wherever they are is home to me!

And there you have it! Hope you enjoyed the little tour and please come again!
