More Rooms I Not Often Show You

I have been working on a a little project and trying to work it in-between

my scheduled activities and a day trip here and there.

So that post will have to be next week. But in the meantime,

can there be more rooms I not often show you? The answer is yes!

Now where shall I start?

Beyond the Doors

They say it is always good to have a second pair of eyes.

Eyes that see differently ….. from a different perspective.

This is exactly what happened the day of the photo shoot

by ShowSpaces Photography.

I noticed the photographer kept opening doors. Hmmm, I thought, for more light?

The photographer stated that you need to see what is beyond the doors.

Rooms I Rarely Photograph, the Kitchen and Laundry Room

When the photographer working with the real estate company sent me the photos

of what she took of the house, I realized that I rarely photograph several

rooms of the house. So today I will present some of the rooms that I rarely photograph,

the kitchen and the laundry room.

There will be more soon!

I think the reason why I do not photograph these rooms as often,  

is that I am usually not happy with the lighting.

Lots of shadows bouncing all over, but I finally, finally,

ordered something that will come soon to alleviate that problem.

Some Fall Inspiration and Origami with Mom

As most of you know, from my blog, and my Instagram,

I had the pleasure of spending the past two weeks with my mom.

We picked her up two weeks ago from my brother and sister in law’s home in Georgia

where she resides in a very large and comfortable “mother-in-law’s” quarters.

I decided that I would devote every moment to her in those two weeks,

thus my absence from my blog and social media. She needed to know and feel

that she was the most important priority in my life during that time.

She mentioned that my life was very busy as I took her to all my activities

and social events that were pre-planned months before her visit.

So for my “first day back” in a long while, on this blog, I thought I would present

some  Fall inspiration around the house and Origami with mom!

Amazing Fall Inspiration, My Mom, and a Giveaway

Wow! What a title . . .

Amazing Fall Inspiration, My Mom, and a Giveaway.

That certainly is a wide range of subjects today.

But let’s start with the Number One subject, My Mom.

She is visiting me for the next two weeks.

So I may be a bit absent next week while I spend time with her

trying to accomplish a list we are making.

“Things that I have not done and places I want to see”

My Fall Home Tour

Fall is definitely creeping in a bit in my part of the country.

We have cooler temps . . . well, cooler to me means it is not in the 90’s . . .

and I can see some slight changes in the color of the leaves on some trees.

That being said, it is time for my Fall Home Tour AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

So grab a seat and your favorite beverage and come along!

First Impressions {Velvet Pumpkins}

They say that first impressions are important.

The curb appeal of your home is definitely a first impression of your property.

A beautiful door can also be the first impression of your personality.

A yellow door of happiness, a purple door of creativeness . . .

When you enter through the doors of a home, I would say the first impression

of the soul of the house is in the foyer/entry.

The Backyard and Porches

An area of the house that I rarely show

is the rear view of the house and the backyard and porches.

Recently we put our home on the market.

The realtor’s photographer came over last week and took about 100 photos.

Fall Porch Gone “Plum Crazy”

I have really been attracted to the beautiful Berry colors this Fall.

The shades of purple and plum have been seen throughout the house for Fall this year.

It was fitting that I go “plum crazy” on the porch too.

Fall Ideas Tour and Flowers for Staging

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

We spent the weekend working on the house . . . inside and out.

Today the house is being photographed for real estate purposes.

I will share them with you as soon as they are available.

Today I present a Fall Ideas Tour and flowers for staging.

The other day I took a trip to Trader Joe’s

and picked up many bunches of flowers in the purple and plum colors.

I also lucked out and got 2 dozen white roses at Target for $7.50!  A super sale!

Here is what I originally did with the white roses.
