Welcome to our new home.
Just a few pictures to share with you.
Candles flicker and fill the air with scents of cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla.
Homemade honey-yellow checked curtains.
Feels homey, and cozy and a bit old fashioned.
Green Jadeite that once upon a time belonged to my grandmother fills the first two shelves on my second hand china hutch. The hutch was a gift from a friend, and I painted it white and aged it with a little glaze.
My own white fine china, that was a gift from my parents when I got married, fills the lower shelf and below. It is still just as classic and beautiful as the day I got it....almost 28 years ago.
Simple valances on the windows above the kitchen sink.
I didn't want to block any of our mountain views.
Sitting around the sink are some plants that I need to get re-potted, and to the right, in the glass front cabinets, you can see my collection of "Honey Butter" Bee dishes.
part of the living room.
I finished the curtains, and I love the way that they turned out.
I used wheat colored checked fabric, with red floral fabric trimming out the bottom.
French doors, into the library.
Hanging in the window, is my leaded glass window. What a great find that was!
I sewed café style curtains for the window, in order to let the light through the leaded glass window.
A glimpse into the laundry room. I used a floral print, with a red and white checked fabric for trim.
I've been doing quite a bit of sewing, right along with getting things unpacked and put away.
I'll share more pictures one of these days.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful for mountain breezes. It makes everything so nice and cool, each morning and evening.
~I'm so grateful for summer, and dinners on the patio with my family
~I'm so grateful for a wonderful, loving husband that takes time each day to pray with me. It makes all the difference in our days! Prayer really changes things!!
