When my husband took the job up where we live now as the fire chief we moved out of our 4 bedroom two story home and moved into this 3 bedroom little lake house ranch. Our little house is a two person nest now that we are empty nesters. I love this house small enough to manage with all my decor change ups and big enough for comfort.
This is the last room on the tour. Thanks to all of you who have come along for the tour and all your sweet comments along the way. I appreciate all of you and your nice comments.
Here we go the Family Gathering Place:
|After I started to post these pictures of my living room I found this chippy ladder out in the shed and begged the hubby to dig it out of the shed and bring it in and he did. In the middle of winter in Chicago he dug out this chippy ladder for me!!! Love that man!!! I took down the old shutter and bird house I had there and put the ladder there and I will hang my throws on it. I moved the old shutter decor to the front wall entry. I think I like the ladder here better.|
|Love the chippy fun ladder. One of my new favs in this room. You know how I love to incorporate things with history into my home.|
|I do love the the way the light comes into this room all day. It is a west exposure so late afternoon I have a lot of sunlight. Today was pretty cloudy and raining but the room still gets a lot of natural light.|
|This is an old window hung and then I added this old frame with burlap and buttons and then added a clock on top of that for the room.|
|I love cottage and gardening so my two favorite things are in the themes throughout my home. I love things with flowers and also birds, vintage bird houses and nests. That chippy birdhouse on my entertainment unit was an actual birdhouse in someone's back yard. I love that I scored that at a yard sale some time ago. The little banner hard to read in this picture but it is burlap with the words "4 Rent" on it.|
|I am currently on the hunt for a nice area rug for this room. Just have not found what I want yet. I am thinking maybe a little pattern and maybe splash of color for the rug. Just have to find the right fit.|
|This is my entry way hall in front of the living room. I re hung the old shutter and vintage bird house arrangement I made here instead of over my reading chair. I like the ladder now by my reading chair to put my throws on.|
