Parade of Homes

Welcome to readers who are touring a Parade of Homes with A bowl full of lemons.  Thanks so much to Toni for putting this all together for us.  I just love looking at other people's homes.


Rob and I bought our current home in 2005.  The home was built in 1995.  The yard, the outside, the inside, all of the house needed to be cleaned up and remodeled.  Here is our front door, come on in:
 
Inside the front door, you'll see our wood staircase.  We did a lot of renovating It used to be covered in carpet.
We renovated our first floor bathroom, and painted it a pale yellow.  
Here are some antique hand mirrors that we hung in the bathroom:

In our office, I have a table where I work on my scrapbooking.  You can read more about it here
 
Are you hungry?  We just set the table with some of our vintage Fiesta Ware.  Come have a seat!

I'll make you a sandwich in the kitchen, if you'd like.
Do you need to take a nap?  I'll show you to the guest room.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Please check out the next home tour here, which is Finding Silver Linings:

You can go back to the beginning of the tour here, at A bowl full of lemons:
We're still hosting our Wicked Awesome Wednesday link party, it's linked up below this post.

Laurie - Your house is darling! I really love the blue in the guest room - I am a big fan of blue, you know! Your bathroom is also darling. Your house is pretty young...mine is an oldie! Great job!

The collection of mirrors displayed on the bathroom wall looks great. I also loved the skirted sink. I'm thinking of skirting some under counter shelves in my own kitchen.

So many sweet ideas here -- the paint colors, the mirrors, the craft area, the guest bedding -- all delicious! I appreciate the big, colorful photos. Nice job!

Thank you for the invitation.

You have two things that I greatly desire: that staircase and the guest room. It's a throwback without looking like a museum. Awesome job.

Martha said...

Great tour! I've seen some of it before because I'm already a follower, but it was fun getting the full picture. Love your vintage Fiesta collection. I have the new Fiesta which I started collecting about five years ago. Your staircase is just gorgeous -- wonderful job!

I love your Fiesta. I collect it too. I gave all of my newer stuff to my son and kept the antiques. You can see a pic on my blog. Fiesta ware is so cheery!!!

Hi, found you on the home tour and you have a wonderfully organized and stylish home. I love the hand mirror display and the white kitchen. I am a new follower and invite you to visit my blog. Thanks for sharing your home.

Hi. Just found your house on the tour. Cute house. I just wanted to say that the Vintage Fiesta
Ware is beautiful and quite $$$, but the older stuff is so full of lead, that people were informed to stop eating off it. The "new" products are fine, but not the old..you might want to have them tested. Ellen
