tour of homes

Keri, over at my eleven got me interested in being in the "Tour of Homes", so I decided to join in the fun.

If your are a mailman, then come to this door. I know, a lot of work in those front flower beds needs to be done. Check out my squash on the bottom right busting through the monkey grass. I picked two pieces from it yesterday!

Otherwise, pull your car around and we'll greet you at the back.

This is the first thing you'll see as you enter. #1 completely takes over our table EVERY day. He has to clean it off every night so we can eat dinner.

The den stays pretty messy all day. Clean up time is right before dinner. (Oh, that is a ocean scence we did for school on the sliding glass doors, it's about to come down)

Okay my kitchen never stays clean for very long. Plus my washer and dyer are located in the kicthen as well. Right now I have little table in there so the kids can do crafts and not mess up the carpet in the den.This is #1's room. It is only clean b/c I did an over haul in there about a week ago.

This is #2's perspective of her room.

This is #3's.

This is the master.

And this is where all the blogging takes place. I am in that chair right now.

Our home didn't come together by just me and my man, it is a long list of family members who helped make our home the cozy little place it is today.

Thanks for looking, come back again!

Check out all the other great homes at boomama.

Your house is so beautiful. I'm totally jealous of your hardwood floors and of how neat everything is. and the paint job in the kids rooms is fabulous. (If you call your den "messy" in that pic, then my house looks like a tornade ran through it)....yikes.

I would post my 'parade of home' house, but you all would be shocked at the clutter and the mess.

Or maybe you wouldn't be shocked, but I refuse to throw myself under the bus so blatantly. ;-)

Maybe next time.

The kitchen (in my pictures) is AWESOME! Very study! Every piece of the kitchen came perfect! No rough edges ect.... I mean perfect! But.... (and there is always a but) you have to put it together and it comes in like 5 gazillion pieces! Each part of the kitchen has a matching screw.... such as when you screw in a yellow door the top of the screw is painted the same yellow... so it blends in so nicely! I am so happy we got it, my ButterBean plays with the kitchen EVERY day!!! she loves to cook everything up! *smile* I however did not buy all the wooden play food that is offered.... I bought mine at 90% LESS at Target *smile*..... Hope that answers your question *smile*

Hey! You're late! But better that than never. I like the kitchen -- who cares if it doesn't stay "clean" when the cabinets are that cool color?

And the kids' rooms...all the bedrooms, actually...really wonderful. Well done!

Hi Terrible speller,
Thanks for your lovely comments. Your home looks a lovely style and I want the master bedroom!. Likewise the kids bedrooms were lovely too very stylish. In my garden we just tend to plant things that are evergreen that last forever! less maintanance. In the UK we have a lot of rain ( apart from this past month when we seem to have too much sunshine and nobody in the UK is used to all this sunshine) which is put down to the changing environment global warming etc. So we want it to rain now!.
Take care X Dommi
