Home Tour

Our home and my tastes have changed with time! Ever since we've downsized seven years ago into our 'dawdy haus,' loosely interpreted as empty nesters, I loved it! But in the last six months, I've been doing a purge and simplifying. My girls took a lot off my hands at Christmas and I enjoy seeing them use the things I once had.

Though I missed linking up to the home tour over at Poppies at Play, I decided to do an update on the changes that have been made inside our home. Stop by her site - she's a one talented lady !

- Our home -
- welcome entrance -
- winter view at the kitchen sink -
-  summer view out of the same window -
-  looking out the other kitchen window,
 you can see the door where most of our guests come through -
- dinning room -
- living room -
- bedroom -
- a free chiffonier make over -
- desk in dressing room -
- painted suitcases -
- my five dollar buffet bargain -

'Home is where the heart is!'

Such a pleasant little stroll through your home.
We call it the 'nickel tour' round our house; when we show people the highlights without the lowlights...he he he.
I guess I missed the memo that you were empty nesters! We have that in common.

Always love the visits here.
Have a blessed Sunday!

Your home is beautiful! You are so blessed that your hubby will allow you to do white on white. My sweet hubby does not like it, so I have had to be creative with color. Your style is my favorite, though!
Hugs, Cindy
