Welcome! Come on In.

My friend Rachel, at A Romantic Porch, is featuring my front porch on her blog this month. Isn't that sweet? I don't even feel like it's complete...we've never gotten spindles or rails up yet. But she likes it, and we enjoy it even though it's a work in progress. (It always gives you something fun to look forward to!)

Several visitors on Rachel's post (debuting my porch) said they'd like to see how I've decorated. Believe me, that is a continuing process too, and trial and error is the name of my game! But, I told Rachel I'd post some pictures, and who knows, maybe some of you can make suggestions, give me ideas, share your thoughts, help me make it better.

It might interest some of you that my dad is a timber jack. He cut the trees that we made oak flooring from. My brother, a multi-talented electrical-engineer, made a hardwood flooring machine, and my husband cut and laid (tongue and groove) every piece of hardwood floor in our home! It's certainly been a family project!

When you come in my front door, this is the first thing you see...slightly to your right.
The kitchen is in front of you. The dining room is directly to the right through an open doorway.

After passing by a little powder room and a coat closet (on your left) the big open great room is off to the left adjacent to the kitchen.

Well, that gives you a sampling. I will add more pictures from time to time. For some reason, I am having trouble getting them to upload today.

Enjoy your day, my blogging friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
