Our home

Well last week I was unable to participate in Kelly's "Show Us Where You Live". I wasn't able to show our kitchen as I couldn't find the way to it at this week since we are now able to find our way I decided to show you where we live. Keep in mind...we are still at a work in progress state. More to come as we have a few things for the walls in the living room, but need to get them hung this weekend.

So come on in.

This is what you would see as you enter our front door. The stairs lead to the bedrooms and laundry room. Back in the back you can see our kitchen and dining area.
This is looking towards the front door. I am still trying to decided what to place in this high area. Any suggestions out there would be appreciated! Just leave me a comment. I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and thought I found something...but was afraid to buy it.
This is our living room to the left of the front door. I still need to make covers for the throw pillows to add some color and add some decor to the wall. The drapes I made myself and tonight we are making a padded box to go over the top. We hung a new ceiling fan last night and just finished the wainscoting on Sunday. It is coming together...finally!
This view is from the dining area looking into the front door and living room. You can see that we still have a paint bucket and vaccuum cleaner on the floor!
This is looking in from our kitchen into our family room. The entire back area of our house is open and is one of the reasons we bought the house. We wanted to have an open kitchen and family area. It's perfect!
I had to show Mom and Dad gave it to me when we moved into our house. I love it! It matches the colors of our room perfectly and I would love to get some throw pillows to match the leopard print on the picture.

The view from the family room into our kitchen.
I love decorating and above the cabinets of our kitchen was the first place I started! Hubby thinks it is a bit too much...but I love it!

As you can tell...all the colors I use are green, red, yellow, brown and black.

My kitchen window. I love having a window to look out of while doing dishes.
My china hutch.
I decided to register for China when I was married...believe it or not...we have used it quite a bit!

That is our home for now...stay tuned next Friday to see more! And of we continue to update the living room this weekend I will be sure to post more pictures.
Happy Friday!

Love it all! I really love the window above the front door. I'll bet it lets in a lot of light. Everything is so homey!!
