When I had company of blogging friends and their hubbies . . .
~ ~ well, let me re-word that “FRIENDS” . . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ let’s leave the “blogging” out . . . as they are great “FRIENDS”
One of them asked me why I do not blog much about this room.
Don’t know why, maybe because it is hard to photograph . . . .
Or maybe because there is so much “leather” . . .
~ ~ is anyone interested in a room with a large leather sofa?
With a pheasant pillow (from Pottery Barn’s Fall collection) . . on it?
Pheasants and Quails . . . . some of my favorite birds. Or are they fowl?
And let’s not even go there as to how the light in that room . . .
~ ~ plays tricks on the color of the walls.
I promise the walls aren’t that sponged/washed 90’s technique!!
Truthfully, we do not spend much time in this room.
When we have company, we will venture down there . . .
~ ~ as it is very comfy down there, to visit or watch a movie with surround sound. . .
~ ~ ~ ~ and you can “put your feet up”.
A room where I have many little treasures . . .
~ ~ such as this “chicken stamp box” that I bought while in France.
And these dog trophies from the fifties . . .
~ ~ one of them for “The Best B – T – H” in Show.
A lamp chosen by my hubby (from Pottery Barn) as he loved “the look” . . .
Another room where I love to add pops of red.
And this turn of the century rocker . . . that reminds me that my sweet granddaughter . . .
~ ~ used to fit in this rocker!! She is becoming such a little young lady now.
Every once in a while, we will pull out these vintage games and play.
Let’s not forget this Dry Sink that was the Bi-Centenial edition from Magnavox . . .
~ ~ that houses a turntable and an 8-track tape player :).
~ ~ ~ ~ with some vintage items that I have not been able to “let go” . . . yet!
Lanterns waiting to be “dressed for Christmas”
Speaking of Christmas . . . it was like Christmas when I got together with some great ladies . . .
~ ~ and friends . . . who just happen to be bloggers too!!!
I traveled to D.C. with my hubby this week…
~ ~ and when I am there, I meet up with Mary Alice and we do “road trips”….
This week’s “long road trip” took us to the Lancaster, PA area . . .
Where we knocked on this door . . .
Of this house . . . recognize it?…
~ ~ where the hostess with the mostest had coffee and a fabulous apple tart waiting for us.
~ ~ ~ ~ at the breakfast table in her gorgeous home.
I am sure you guessed correctly . . . Mary Alice and I drove up to visit StoneGable . . .
~ ~ where Pinky was there to meet us too . . . such a surprise.
Don’t you just love our “selfie” !!!
We had a great day, the four of us . . . of great food and shopping . . .
~ ~ with Yvonne as our tour guide.
My hubby and I arrived home last night or should I say this morning, as it was waay after midnight.
However, we got up early to go to our granddaughter’s Halloween Parade at school…
She is a cutie!!!…All dressed up as a “turtle” a storybook character . . .
Of this book . . .
I will always treasure these moments . . . as they grow up so very quickly….
And on our way home . . . I took a photo of this house down the street from me . . .
~ ~ should I warn the residents that a creepy spider is crawling toward their door!!!???
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!! . . . AND HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
And stay tuned to a wonderful “party” of my fellow bloggers next week . . .
~ ~ being “THANKFUL AT HOME”
