Home Sweet Home

Several of you have asked for pictures of our new home.
Please remember that I am the blogger
and my husband is the realtor, so his "house"
pictures would probably be better, but...

Welcome to our front porch.
Right now there are beautiful tulips blooming.
This picture of the dining room is taken with a
wonderful Iphone app that my friend Marla
told me about called Pano. With it, you can take a
panoramic view of a big space. I am still playing with it.
This is the living room taken with the same app, but I messed up
a little so you have a somewhat warped view of our living
room. I guess you'll just have to come
and see it for yourself.
Breakfast area overlooking the deck.
Being a southern girl, I love oak cabinets,
so was thrilled that this home has them.
I have never had a home office of my own.
I have always shared with David.
This one is all mine! Not surprisingly,
it is filled with antique
school items and lots of children's
books.
My retirement present of a library
card catalogue is being put
to practical use with all kinds of
office items stored away in
the little drawers.
This is the basement. For those of you who
are observant, you will notice that
sunlight is coming in one window
but not the other. That is because behind the window is
a hot tub. Yes, you heard correctly, a hot tub.
It might not last too long so you better
come and see us soon if you want to enjoy it.
This is the guest bedroom with my grandmother's
bedroom suite. I used to climb up on this
bed and thought it was so high. Has it shrunk,
or have I gotten taller?
The shower curtain in the guest bathroom is
made from a quilt topper from my grandmother.

This sign is in the guest quarters.
My son-in-law loves to ring it when
he visits. You'll have to ask him
about the house service. It's pretty
nonexistent.
This is the lower deck looking down on the
infamous hot tub.
This is the upper deck waiting for some outside
furniture. I don't want just anything. I think
I'll be combing the antique stores until
I find just what I "need". Any excuse will do
to go antique shopping.

Hope you enjoyed the guided tour.
Come and see us.
The welcome mat is out and we'll
leave the porch light on.

Oh, oh, oh.. So many lovely things to see in your new home! Of course, I love the card catalog! And, what an adorable and clever shower curtain! You must have had a wonderful time pulling it all together.

The service is just great! (though ringing the bell doesn't seem to make any difference...)
