The Heart of Your Home Tour with Shelia of Note Songs

Wednesday, April 17, 2013


Hello, Dear Ones!

I'm Shelia and my blog is called Note Songs and I'm so thrilled that my friend, Cindy, has asked me to share my home with you today. I've been blog friends with this pretty lady for quite some time now. The first time she showed the front of her home I thought, "Her home looks a little like mine!"

This is Cindy’s home…

DWELLINGS


And this is mine, built in 1970…

NOTE SONGS


Our houses could be cousins!

NOTE SONGS


So here's a tour of my Notes Songs cottage…
I have double front doors as does Cindy, but mine doesn’t have the pretty pediment.

NOTE SONGS


Come on in...

NOTE SONGS 


Here's the living room on the left side of the entry.

NOTE SONGS


The dining room is by the stairs on the right. 
 
NOTE SONGS


The den is where Mr. Precious and I spend most of our time and I blog in my recliner. I'm so lazy!

NOTE SONGS


Right behind the den is the sun porch. I've made all of my pillows and window toppers.

Our houses could be cousins!


My kitchen is very small but I do love it. We had the cabinets refaced about a year ago and got new counter tops.

NOTE SONGS


This is my breakfast room and my little hutch gets changed out almost monthly!

NOTE SONGS

Okay, we'll head upstairs now.
NOTE SONGS


Here we are at the top of the stairs and this is where Edra resides. I found her on Craig's List a few years back, painted her red and she lives on happily ever after.

NOTE SONGS


This is our master bedroom where I should get more hours of sleep than I do. Somehow I just can't get off my computer at night!

NOTE SONGS


Our master bath was redone a few years back. New counter tops, new mirrors, a new tiled shower for Mr. Precious. All was new except for my bathtub. Just so you'll know, it's avocado green! I know, I know! :)

NOTE SONGS


Through the frosted glass door in the bathroom is our little sitting room. This is such a calm place to sit and watch TV. It used to have a 1970s hot tub for 6! Mirrors on the wall and lots of lattice looking wallpaper. It has a rug now and a few more pieces of furniture but I didn't have a recent snap.

NOTE SONGS


This is the guest bathroom and more mirrors. I won't tell you that through the door to the left your eyes would pop out to see a harvest gold tub and potty! I know, I know...1970s again.

NOTE SONGS


This is Mr. Precious' office. You can see why I've never shown you this room before ~ he keeps it quite messy. He's a collector of military memorabilia, so there are lots of goodies around. He's an avid runner and above the olden leather sofa are some snaps of him from marathons he's run. I don't tell him he has hot legs for nothin'! :)

NOTE SONGS  


I affectionately call this bedroom 'The Grandma Bedroom'. It's filled with furnishings from both sets of grandparents ~ the olden bedroom set and the Singer sewing machine. I'm not going to show you much of the room because it needs lots of work and I want to spruce it up some. This is also the room where I sew.

 NOTE SONGS


This is the guest bedroom. Not too fancy and has the first canon ball bedroom set Mr. Precious and I bought not long after we married. My mother used to quilt and she made the quilt on the bed for me. I do treasure it.

The Heart of My Home…
We moved into our home almost 17 years ago and the minute my husband and I walked in the door we knew this was the one for us. We prayed a blessing on our home that God would make everyone who entered to feel His presence and at home. I love to entertain and open up my home to friends and family and I have had visitors tell me they just felt so at home here. I love that. I guess my decor style is mostly traditional. I love color with a little bit of fun tossed in. I know many have a much grander home but I just love it and feel so blessed to live here. I hope you felt at home today!

Well, that's the tour of my home.  I've shown you more of my home today than I ever have, I hope you have enjoyed the tour!

Thank you so much, Cindy, for asking me to share my home with your blog readers today. I'm truly honored!
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia

I definitely felt at home touring Shelia’s beautiful home, didn’t you!  I love her foyer, the staircase is spectacular!  We have become great friends, kindred spirits for sure.  If you already know Shelia you would agree that they just don’t come any sweeter, she is a precious lady.
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us Shelia!
Please “be a sweetie” and go visit Shelia at her beautiful blog Note Songs, you’re in for a treat.

Blessings,
Cindy

  16. Hi Cindy. Thanks for showcasing Shelia's beautiful home. She calls everyone her sweeties but she is the sweetie. Like she says she hasn't shown much of her home before. I didn't realize it was so grand. I left a message over to her but I might mention that I am in love with Edra. What a little beauty..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  17. Your home is darn well grand!! It's enormous, how do you find the energy to clean?!! I love your traditional style...your master bedroom furniture is very similar to ours and how nice to have a sitting room, a dream of mine! Your home is beautiful, inside and out (like you), very welcoming, comfortable and filled with an abundance of love.

    Thanks so much for featuring Shelia's home, Cindy...I really enjoyed the tour! :)

  18. You're so right, she is one of the sweetest bloggers out there! It was her sweet comments on others blogs that drew me to her blog and I've been an avid commenter ever since.
    Her house is lovely and very welcoming, and the exterior is almost identical to yours. This was very sweet of you to do, Cindy. I saw more of Shelia's home than I have ever seen. Hugs, Cindy

  40. I loved seeing Shelia's home in such detail. She has good sized bedrooms and they're all decorated nicely! I had the harvest gold throughout my house when we bought it so I know what that's like! Her husband's office looks great. You can tell its real and functional. I think the kitchen is wonderful and plenty big! My favorite room is the living room and your gorgeous piano. The staircase is fabulous and I love the generous foyer. It's amazing how close in looks your two homes are!

  43. Such a beautiful home. I was especially fond of the green walls, your inviting kitchen and that bed in the master bedroom. Gorgeous!

    I can see why she chose to feature your lovely home.

  44. Hello Cindy, I have visited Shelia and her husband in person just this past summer. They are wonderful people and we did feel very welcome and 'at home' in her lovely home. Every room has Shelia's special touch with her beautiful decorating. She is talented in so may ways and her pillows and drapes/curtains are beautifully hand made. This tour brought back a special memory of sitting in her breakfast room and eating delicious cake. Hand made of course. Smile. Shelia is warm and caring and so is her husband. She is the 'sweetie.'

  45. Shelia's home is lovely. I have always thought so. I had to smile when she commented that others may have grander homes...heavens, now I think I live in a closet! :) It's not the size and the grandness of a home or the furnishings..it's the love. It's the folks that live there. Shelia and her husband give it that feeling of warmth..not the size or the furnishings.. Wonderful home. Wonderful people.

  46. I am so happy that you featured Sheila and her BEAUTIFUL home! I have been following her for quite some time and she is the sweetest lady....and FUNNY too!
