Hi blogging friends! Would you like to come visit?? Some of you asked for some pics of our new abode so come on a tour of our getting to be homey home! We just moved in a few months ago, so we're working on the homeyness part. This is where you'll get to come visit if you're ever in the southwest!
Come on in, enjoy, relax, imagine and smell the waft of your favorite scented candles as you walk in the door and around. Close your eyes and sniff: Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla, Sweet bakery items (can't recall the name, but it's yummy), Sweet Pea, just to name a few. It was Hubby that just reminded me of the scents, he said he hopes people don't think he's too "happy" of a guy for his contribution to this post. We love love love candles! The ambiance, scents, look, the relaxation factor. We're lucky we haven't burned down a house so far with how much we love candles. Ok, we're not the psychos on some of those tv shows with the whole house lined in candles, I mean we do have a little walker now, that just couldn't happen anyway, and we're not psychos.
So, as you are walking through, I covet...mean welcome your ideas! Don't be shy, you're friends, and that's what friends are for! Telling one their walls are bare and they need something, or rearranging furniture, or that so doesn't look right you're crazy. I'm ok with that, really I am!
Ok, here we go!! When you first walk in, you see LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE. Because we do all of that...a lot! Then the welcome sign that is ackwardly on the wall above the table right now, is only there because I had to have something on the wall and I haven't found the mirror to go there yet! The double doors contain the office, but I'm in there right now, so I'll show it to you another time, ha!
GLHF has up! Gorgeous! Where did you find everything, beside from Momsy's walls? :)
Look to the left and you'll see the hallway, blank walls! Hubby just replaced the light, the new ones (clearance! with a coupon!) actually match the new dining room chandelier (also clearance with coupon!). Love it!
It's in my mind.
The warm cup in your hands, the hot sips, the scent as you drink it, oh it's just what you need in the morning or anytime you need a hint of relaxation (except I have nothing to make it right now, really we have no presses or coffee maker, I NEED it!)! I believe my love of coffee stems from my Mom drinking about 15 cups a day. There must be something underlying there too, because not only does she always have a cup of coffee in her hand, it could have been from hours ago and cold. No no, no need to heat it up, just grab the cup and drink away! Ha! So gross! Can anyone do a psychological evaluation on that? Love her!
The centerpiece consists of a tower of red roses we had roses at our wedding, that's right cue the sappy music and you can say it, ahh that's sweet, and our wedding cake topper, a couple dancing, it's really us shrunken down and made out of clay, we LOVE dancing!, and the broken glass in a white satin bag, you know at Jewish weddings, when the groom stomps on the glass and everyone shouts Mazel Tov!, oh it was sooooo much fun! We danced the WHOLE night! One of my cellists from my old quartet (I play the violin, he) was talking with another couple getting married, telling them our wedding was the most fun he'd ever been to, and they said, what made it so fun, he replied, I don't know, they didn't even have alcohol or anything! Haha! Well just champagne! Clink!
But there is a little table and chairs next to the fireplace if you want to...study...or enjoy the fireplace...in 100 degree weather...or well I don't know but it's pretty!
Oh and the color in here is not periwinkle, it is...December Sky! Silverish...Not periwinkle!
