Scenes from my world -- in the house

Here are a few new pictures I took this week inside my home. I wanted to take pictures of my pantry area in the garage but it has been too dark and stormy (pictures are best taken on a sunny afternoon in that garage). Hmmm... "It was a dark and stormy night"... but I digress.

As it is, the pictures are on the dark side. No, not like Darth Vader...

The vintage hankie was given to me by my friend, Linda
I thought it looked cute tucked in the heart on the door

The "Welcome" plaque was one of the items
purchased in Lancaster County

This was the other item purchased in Lancaster County.
It came from the same antique-gift shop
where I um... convinced my daughter
that I NEEDED THAT RED BIRDHOUSE...
before she paid for it and took it back to New England...
It is definitely a Midwestern birdhouse
(pictured in previous post)

My dining room is the first thing you see
when stepping through the front door...
notice the backpack on the floor...
what can I say, a teenage boy lives here :)

I LOVE these colors...

My living room is immediately
to the left as you walk in the door...
That is a cat on the sofa, doing
that for which she is a star... napping

Another view of the living room.

I took a few other pictures but they were too dark since I...
live at the edge of a forest, and
it was a dark and stormy day.

Kitchen pictures are available
on the side bar
