Welcome Home Tour



  Did you miss me?       H and I took our daughter and grand daughter on a trip to NY to visit family....we left last Wed. and returned today.
It is always fun to do a little traveling, but it is sooo wonderful to be home.   I thought this might be an appropriate time to do a home tour in honor of our home coming...hope you enjoy it!





My home tour begins in the family room.  When we moved here  7 years ago, the walls in this room were dark paneling, the fireplace did not have a mantle, and the floors were covered with a light beige carpet.

I love the new look of our family room...here is a photo from Christmas 2012.


 We removed the divider that separated this small dining room from the family room and made one large living area.   The table is all set for a romantic Valentine dinner.   The table runner is made from my collection of vintage valentines...the centerpiece is a lamp with a shade made of vintage valentines.....and there is a sweet heart couple at each place setting.

The kitchen is my favorite room in the house.  It is bright and cheerful with plenty of room for everyone to join in the cooking.  When we moved here, the cabinets were dark wood and the floor was covered with blue indoor outdoor carpet.

Our sun room is bright and comfortable.    We enclosed the open patio with six sets of French doors to make a sun room that we enjoy year round.

In this photo, the formal dining room is ready for Thanksgiving with glittered pink pumpkins.   I made the ruffled tablecloth from muslin and pieces of lace...the chairs are covered with vintage wedding dresses.   I am already getting excited about getting out the pumpkins...fall is just around the corner! 

This picture is from my post "Pink Pumpkins for the Cure"  


We updated the laundry room earlier this year.  The dark cabinets all got a fresh coat of white paint.  I also added a cabinet to store all the doilies in.
The display cabinet in the hallway also got a coat of white paint .   H  installed the new lighting and also painted the cabinet.
This is the main bathroom which I have decorated in a Paris theme.
The master bedroom is all dressed up for Valentines Day with a vintage bedspread.

I leave this tree up year round in the master bedroom.  I collect vintage wedding gowns and I used 10 of them to make this tree.  Don't worry...none of them were harmed in the making of the tree!
This is the bath off the Master bedroom.  Last year we put in new sinks, faucets, toilet, counter tops, and painted the dark wood cabinets white.

This is our back yard.  The structure on the left is the Potting Shed.  H made it from doors and windows that we collected on a trip up thru Kentucky, Tennessee, and on into New York.     H is originally from NY and we visit family there every couple of years.
 The building on the right is the Studio.  It originally was a second double garage... there is also double garage in the front of the house.   So...we removed the garage door and installed 3 sets of French doors and added heat and air conditioning.    I do crafts there and the back half is storage for seasonal items.

I hope you enjoyed my home tour!

  3. You have such a passion for decorating...and the victorian, the tablecloth you made for the dining table is awesome, thanks for sharing..

    ReplyDelete
  4. Penny, you have certainly lightened up this house to make it a lovely home. Your kitchen is a wonderful space! Clever of you to add the French doors to close up the open porch. We did the same with our screened in porch, then added Phantom Screens so it can be enclosed or opened as a screened in porch. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Julie Marie....glad to be home...missed everyone! Yes, I did make that dreamcatcher! It is the first and only one I have ever made and I had so much fun designing and making it. I have it hanging in the window over my bed now, love to watch it move in the breeze when the window is open. Hugs, Penny

  17. Penny - I think you have such a romantic take on decorating - it is beautiful... I have to tell you I saw your wedding dress tree last Christmas and emailed a picture of it to my sister as it is so unique - she owns a dress store specializing in wedding, prom, evening, etc... She fell in love with it and made one from some old wedding dresses and place it in her store window for Christmas... It was a real hit... You just never know where your inspiration will end up....love your blog....
