Our Home in the January 2017 Issue of Romantic Homes!

The January 2017 issue of Romantic Homes is out and our home is featured in this special 30th anniversary issue!

There are eight page of photos and a wonderful article telling all about our home. My husband is particularly pleased about how many times he was mentioned. lol You can order a copy here.

Kristen Wheeler was the photographer that came to our home. I thought it would be fun to share with you some of her photos that didn't make it into the magazine. All the following were taken by Kristen. The styling and editing is mine.

Our Guest Room

Happy Fourth of July Weekend!

We are in the midst of a master bathroom remodel and are being held up by plumbing issues. Everything is torn out - shower, toilet, tub, vanity, carpet and tile floor - and we are waiting on a plumber. I've taken lots of (ugly) pictures and will share them with you as we get closer to the end.

In the meantime, our guest room is now filled with the overflow from our bathroom. I didn't get all the pictures I would have like to have gotten and now I can't.  But, this is how it looked the day of the photo shoot with Romantic Homes.

Most things in here are the same. I had been on the hunt for a night stand for the left of the bed. I've had this sewing machine table for a long time. I moved it from another room and painted it white. It's a perfect fit and a great height.
Because our house will most likely be published in a Spring issue, I added some faux Spring boughs to the night stand and left all the Spring florals.


I didn't get any pictures of the other side of the room but you can see that we added a chair from the living room because I don't have a good chair for in here right now. You can also glimpse the corner of my desk that's opposite the bed in the photo below. There's a built in shelf above the closet door that runs that length of the room that I've  filled with treasures. Kristen is looking at everything in this photo.
 This chandelier was a garage sale find that I painted with chalk paint and added crystals to.
 I whipped up another pillow to sit on this chair.
The prints on this side of the room are the same.
These lamps were black when I purchased them. I spray painted them an antique white and added crystals. 
They tie-in nicely with the chandelier.  These are the plates you can see sitting on corbels on either side of the window.
It was a lot of fun watching Kristen get into position for 'the shot.' 
The last time I showed you this room there was this sweet baby on the bed.  This sweet baby turned one last week!
Happy birthday, Lucas!
And our Rhynn turned four!
We are so blessed!  Here we are at the double birthday celebration on my daughter's deck. 
Happy Fourth of July from our family to yours!
Me, my husband, grandson Lucas, daughter Laura, grandson Levi, son Matt, granddaughter Rhynn, son Mark, my mom, SIL Ryan
