I'm so sick and tired of this cold! Today I decided to get off the sofa and take a few pictures to post. Of course, after I loaded them, I accidently deleted the one below of my son and myself so it's out of order.
The little picture in the middle is of me and Shane when he was 2 1/2 months old (I can't believe I'm posting this one!) The one to the right of that is me and Shane at a birthday celebration a couple of years ago.
I love decorating with books, especially old ones. The pictures above and below are just a few I have on the bookcase in the den.
Some of you real observant girls can see that a couple of my "books" are faux ones from Kirklands but they look good!
On the other bookcase, I have groupings of family photos. I hate these turned out so dark because they span quite a few years of my children's lives. On the far left is Shannon as a little girl, the middle one is a senior pictures and of course the far right one is her wedding picture. (Well, I just deleted the ones of Shane when he was little so they will go at the top of this post)
The "old world plate" is a $1.87 charger from Hobby Lobby!
Oops! Please disregard the cords in the name of modern technology! This is the neatest chair...it really is much prettier in person. We got it at auction and had it recovered in one of my favorite fabrics.
Now for some of the things on my mantle (or is it mantel - I can never remember). As you can see, I am not a believer in "less is more"!
Looking out of the dining room you can see the kitchen and den
I love this mirror!
I tried to change out the paper "placemats" and table setting but hubby likes it so I'll leave it for now.
I hope ya'll enjoyed your little visit. Right now my sunroom is a holding place for stuff for a yard sale so once I get that back in shape, I'll post pics of that room. It's like a 2nd den for me. I'm hoping to get kitchen and kitchen cabinets done soon and can't wait to see how that turns out. It seems I never get my entire house "done" at one time....I know that a lot of you feel my "pain" in that regard!
Blessings to you all!
