Welcome!

This is tour of the places in my home that make me smile, give me a sense of accomplishment or remind me of good times past and to come...I hope you enjoy your visit and that you will come back again someday.



This is our front walk. I enjoy gardening and absolutely love the way the front of our house has a "prairie" feel. The ornamental grass hedge, it's hard to see, is my favorite but the flowers take more loving care.

When JD talked about a place in her house that just makes her happy this is the view that immediately came to mind for me. The color in my family room makes me happy because it required so many Wednesday morning coffee's to pick just the right shade of brown. After I painted, I shopped at Ettema's department store for the mirror. I was so lucky because it was a manager's special...it was almost like I stole it! This is the view from my kitchen table...love it!

Here is my creamy custard and habanero pepper kitchen. Hot Mamma and I painted it in one great day! Doug left for work and it was white and came home to these awesome warm colors. We love to entertain and this space provides enough room for people to have a drink and mingle while we prepare dinner. You can't see the other part of the room but it is BIG, I love it...last year we had 22 people for a sit down dinner.

For some reason I can't get the rest of my happy places pictures to post...so you will have to wait for another day. Until then, I'm so glad you dropped by...maybe next time we can have coffee.

I love putting these pictures of my clean house up because when the house looks like it does today...I just visit these pictures and remember what it used to look like. Happy vs unhappy really just depends on how many toys are on the floor and if the sink is full or empty.

LOVE your house and the bold colors! And that mirror rocks - I thought the picture was distorted at first and then I realized that the mirror is just that cool:)

Thanks for playing!
