Equestrian and Burlap in the Family Room

Friday, February 5, 2016


We used to call this the great room.

Previously there were two rooms where we could watch tv and entertain guests.  Just steps from each other, one room was the den and the other was this larger room with lots of windows, a fireplace and an exit door to the back deck, so we called it the great room which was fitting at the time.  We didn't use this room often because most of our leisure time was spent in the den.

A couple of years ago we began remodeling and combined our former den and tiny kitchen to make our new kitchen and keeping room. The great room was updated too.  We had already removed the popcorn ceiling and during the renovation we removed the old carpet and replaced it with hardwood flooring and the dark paneling was painted.  We now spend most of our leisure time in this room since our old den is now part of the new kitchen.

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

A week ago we were covered in snow and today we were in the upper 60's with a forecast of 70 degrees for tomorrow.  What a change and I love it!

Sweet Parrish Place ~ Winter Home Tour



When The Flowers Fade

Thursday, January 28, 2016



I can't think of anything more beautiful in the middle of winter,
when everything outdoors is dormant and drab,
than having fragrant and colorful flowers indoors.

One of the things I miss most during the winter is bringing in fresh picked flowers from the garden.  They add so much joy to a room!
So here's a great way to have the next best thing all winter long!

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

We got the much anticipated dusting of snow and it was beautiful.  The sun is now shinning and most of it has melted, but it is still c-o-l-d!
Hope you've had a wonderful weekend and are staying warm.

Chateau Chic ~ First Impressions When House Hunting



It Finally Arrived!

Sunday, January 24, 2016


Yes, we got some S-N-O-W!

Thankfully, just enough to be pretty and it should be gone within a couple of days.
Even our kitty Coco found a cozy place to enjoy watching those fully white flakes fall by perching just in front of the kitchen window.
