Everyday Living with Comfy Cottage WHITE!

Hi there,
I took some pictures around my house and your
going to see a bit of everyday life, I did move the gigantic
dog bed out of the living room, I knew I'd be tripping over
it!

~living room love seat and the door into our family room~


~closer view showing a bit of everyday wrinkles~

...and this is where I sit and enjoy my morning coffee,
usually wrapped up in that white cozy blankie folded
up in the corner!



~hide abed sofa across from the love seat,

...and this is where Mr. McGiver
has his morning coffee, with his feet up on what else, but the
coffee table. 
We live in our home, we have grand kiddos around,
our big 100lb. dog & our sweet long haired cat,
we have NO shortage of
animal hair,
and
I
still
looove
white!
~*~



~our fireplace~

Now there's a HUGE project! I have a
portfolio of idea's just for this alone...
I can hardly wait for the day I can
show Y'all the finished picture!
 ~*~

~did you notice the grand kiddos little cupboard~

Around the corner is our small dining room with it's very
large table and pretty chairs...
(thrift store find)!
and you 're probably noticing that I haven't
made the slip covers for the chairs yet!
Talk about procrastinating, yep
that would be ME!


~dining room view from kitchen~

I know I've mentioned I'd share my
kitchen with you one day,
BUT,
that wouldn't be today...
it
doesn't go with
the rest of the house,
it's
 bright yellow
and
full
of
kitschy
fun
fruity
chalk ware
It's very 50's, not so
cottage-y!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your home. I was so thrilled to see my grandparents' coffee table! It wasn't painted white- very dark wood and a glass top. They had the matching end tables, too! But I miss that coffee table! It always looked so elegant to me as a child!

Two lost as a result of two days what person grows to stop by each and every weekend break, is usually in front of a new substantially numerous predicament when compared to a few being a couple of period areas a part through small chance to traveling. At the same time, give some thought to the time the partnership is recognized leading to a mileage began, when a few primarily offers a couple of months collectively ahead of struggling with some sort of 2year hiatus, that could be a bit of very much to try to get, nevertheless the long term few just might complete 6months a part without having pulsating watch..
