Tour De Home (Part I)

Yes, I know this is not the actual French translation, but you get the idea.

Four the last couple of weekends, DH has been heading to the woods on Friday & Saturday. He goes to his grandparent's home in the country, about 60 miles from here, and prepares for (hopeful) deer slaying season. Poor deer.

While I miss his presence around the house, my sorrow has been lessened somewhat by the fact that DH takes my two eldest children with him, giving me an entire evening on Friday and 1/2 day Saturday in a quiet, tidy home. Well, as tidy as it can be with a 1 year old Destruct-ress around :).

So, what better time to give you a tour of my home than when it's actually clean and tidy? In part I of this series I will show you my foyer, dining room, & kitchen.


The foyer area (front door) view from the dining room. As you can see, we have yet to repaint that patch on the wall that was sanded down when we sheetrocked the kitchen.

Ye Olde Kitchen

The Dining Room

Straight through the foyer you will find our dining room. This room and the kitchen are the hub of our home. Here we eat, homeschool, and create. The kids stay here at this table the majority of the day and color, draw, put puzzles together, play with play dough, and make messes! It's also where I make hairbows and put the sewing machine when I bring it out.

The curio cabinet you see to the right there was a gift to me from my Pawpaw on my 10th birthday, I believe. I used to collect porcelain dolls and he bought it for me to display them in. Notice there's only one shelf? It's actually a pretty interesting story, how the rest of the shelves got broke. But that's another post.

I think I would make a good real estate agent, because I LOVE houses! Thanks for letting me pretend to be an agent for you :). Stay tuned for Part II :).

Thank You for inviting me into your home. I like that you have a big foyer. The new cabinets looks great. What color green did you use in your dining room? I really like it.

Your house is beautiful! I particularly love the bench in the dining room. What a cute touch!
