Hey, you came back! Nice to see you again! If you are new here, I am taking you on a tour of my home. (Well, the part that is not piled with toys, sippy cups and shoes!)
Yesterday, I showed off my cleaned up front porch. Here is a full view of the house. My husband works hard on our yard, so I tried to show a little bit of the green grass. Great job hubby! It was raining when I took this, so it sort of looks like I live in a rain forest.
Come on in Ya’ll…
This is the dinning room I just re-arranged. Since I didn’t plan on doing this, I have no before shots. But I can tell you it was very cluttered with a big tree, ugly dried flowers on little shelves, candle sticks, frames of the kids. Just a bunch of things that didn’t belong!
I am enjoying this toned down simple look. Three things I want to add to this room. Maybe you can give me some ideas!
- A Rug. Should it be a colorful pattern or simple?
- Blue accents. A peacock blue maybe? Something to help that painting pop. Oh, what about a pretty table cloth? I can’t picture a blue table cloth though? mmmm?
- Plates around the big mirror. Or should I just leave it? I can’t make decisions!!
I love decorating with old books and fruit.
I usually buy bags of apples and lemons at every grocery store run. I have small children and can’t keep anything too nice within little arms reach! I have a big bowl full of sea shells and those are all broken now! Right before I took this photo below, I realize there was a bite in one of the apples. I should have left it! ha.
Note the big bowl of broken shells on the table above. I can’t believe that crystal bowl is still intact!
Now after looking at these photos. I really want to get new lamps and blue accents! I used to have lamps, in these rooms, but ended up moving them to areas that we actual use on a daily basis.
You may think, oh bla… where’s the color? Since all my other rooms are very colorful, I left the entry neutral tones. It’s fun to change color with accents.

NOTE: After posting my home tour. I realized there was a POOPIE party going on at the Nesting Place! POOPIE stands for: People Opposing Objectionable Pretend Plants In the Environment. You know, like bright green ivy hanging over the tops of cabinet. You can read all about it here. I am very much a POOPIE, then realized I have more than one pretend plant! How many fakes do you see in my rooms above? Are they really horrible or okay? ha! Or maybe you never even noticed? You can join in on the fun and link to your wonderful or horrible pretend plants, pumpkins, fruits, or whatever it is you want to share!
