As promised in the earlier post today, here are some more photos of my home for the Open House Party that Marina Capano (Argentina TV Star!) is hosting. Be sure and go to her blog to get the links for the other participants from around the globe! These photos really aren't that good because I cannot find the stabilizer on this new camera! LOL! Maybe I should read the operating instructions.
Except for my room and my studio, the house is done in red, white, and blue! The living room has a 'jungle' theme. I was going for an 'Out of Africa' style. Parts of it work and parts don't.This little 'music set' was found at a yard sale a long time ago!I reupholstered this wing chair myself. I was really proud of the job I did; I had only watched TV to learn how to do it!
This sofa table works better to define the walk through than it does behind the sofa.I like decorative balls too!This shot of the living room is taken from the breakfast room.Part of the kitchen. See, I told you I decorated in red!This is the den taken from the breakfast room also. I like to read, you think?These are more shots of the dining room; this one is the breakfront.
I love tassels so they are found in most every room.These plates are very special to me. The redware belonged to my Mother's Mom, whom I never met as she died right after Mom was born. The bowl was another gift from Lynn's Cousin Eleanor.I use to crochet and cross stitch before my hands got so bad. I made these for the entry way.I designed and made the mirror frame and the swags in the powder room.I hope you enjoyed the tour of my little home. I couldn't show you all of it because I'm a lousy housekeeper and I didn't want to embarrass myself! Be sure and look at the post before this one, as it has the photos of my favorite place: my bedroom.
