Summer Home Tour!

I did not want to miss all the fun. Shabby Creek Cottage is having a summer home tour and once I had visited the homes I just wanted to be a part of all the fun so...Welcome to our home!
In keeping things real you will notice the dust on the porch floor, yes, we living if farming country and with all the planting that has been happening the porch will be like that until July.

 The old desk stays on the porch year around but most everything else gets moved around. I usually have a red, white and blue porch from Memorial day till the 4th but since my Dad's passing I just can't put it out!
 When you step inside the front door this is my collection of crocks..well, part of them!
 At this point you can head up the stairs or

 into the dining room. The pocket doors on the right would lead to the living room. We will enter through the dining room today.

 This is just a few projects I am working on. A little jewelry

 and to the other side of the room.

 Sometimes I forget to show our built-in but today I remembered.

 On to the living room. This is a very large room with 5 big windows. Today the breeze is blowing the curtains and it is so nice and sunny.
 This is the first summer with this wall color so I am not sure about the bright colors I added for summer but it is a learning curve and I love to decorate so for now they stay.
 If you read my blog then you remember when I made this wreath and the rest have been there for a while..just a little plain for this season.
 I know this is not a very good picture but I wanted to share my counter top. It is recycled glass with broken mirrors that sparkle like glitter.
 And I am in love with my vintage spice bottles so now I will add a touch of blue to the kitchen too.
 If you walk in my back door then this is where you enter. Our kitchen is the hub of our home and as you can see we have another staircase in the kitchen.
 Now you can see the bathroom and I have to be honest it is the most fun to decorate.

 The only color in this room is the decor so with each season I just change it out and it is such fun. It is very simple to make it look so different. For the summer we have a beach theme.
 This beauty is on our back porch but I just can't show the rest, that is for another day.
Please come back and visit. I will have the coffee on!
