Christmas in the Sunroom

The first room in which I usually initiate my Christmas decorating each year,

other than the foyer, is my Sunroom.

This year was no different. I began decorating the room

by putting up my Memory Tree. The tree that is filled with ornaments

that I have collected and have been gifted to me over many, many years.

I was actually decorating this tree Halloween night!

Yes . . . placing ornaments on the tree in-between answering the calls of the

Trick or Treaters for their treats.

Now, it is definitely Christmas in the Sunroom.

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.

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!

I Went Plum Crazy for Early Fall in the Sunroom

When I was traveling with my hubby in California,

I had the opportunity to visit a couple of Pottery Barn stores

while he was attending a conference. It was then when I came across their great sale

and as a result of this, I went plum crazy for early Fall in the Sunroom.

Literally crazy for the pillow covers in the shades of plum.

Let the Summer Decorating Begin

Where has Spring gone?

The older I get, the more I tend to savor each season,

as they go by so quickly. So in a blink of an eye, Spring has passed us by

and Summer is here.

Therefore . . . . Let the summer decorating begin.

For some reason I always start in the sunroom.

French Door Love. What Were We Thinking?

As my hubby and I pour over house plans with one in particular,

we discovered that we definitely are not only downsizing in square footage,

but downsizing in the amount of windows and french doors.

We have French door love. What were we thinking?

Yes, what were we thinking when we installed 7 sets of french doors in this house.

We were thinking that they bring in so much light and are just beautiful.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring

I have been refreshing  my rooms from Winter decor to Spring decor.

That is always a fun thing to do as we all love Spring.

I have already Refreshed the Great Room for Spring.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring was next on the list.

I had a couple of inspiration pieces to work with.

When I received my new issue of Country Living, it was a no brainer to

go back to HomeGoods and get those pillows that I have had my eye on

and hoping they were still there.
