The Whole Room ...


I have had a few requests for "full" shots of my home. I have posted full shots in the past, without Christmas decorations. So here are some more full room shots. Pay no attention to the bookcase in the above picture. I am getting ready to rearrange it and add some holiday decorations both on the shevles and on top.
The first picture below is not a full shot. This metal rooster is on the top of my wine cabinet. The full shot will follow.


Below is a picture standing at one end of my living room. You can see the wine cabinet on the far wall and into the dining room on the right of the picture.

The next two pictures are of my dining room.





Below are pictures of my living room. It is really hard to get full shots and the lighting is not that great this time of day.









So there you are....some full shots of my living and dining rooms..

Don't forget to check out my latest post at Home Goods - and if you have time I would love it if you left a comment there!

Welcome Home,
Penny

Hey Penny,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm loving that quilt on the back of your sofa. Boy we have good taste don't we. Your home looks fab.

This was a fun tour thru your home - I would love to sit in your dining room or living room and have a cup of coffee w/ you!

tardevil said...

That fireplace is just beautiful, and I love the toile stockings. And that blinged up rooster is just too cool. Went by your blogger friend's booth at the Charlotte Christmas show, and she wasn't in that Sunday. I got sick that day, and my camera batteries died, so I never got many photos. Maybe, I'll meet her next year. Oh, and I just love all the red in your house. I just had my powder room painted red, and love it. I probably should have done the dining rm instead b/c now red & green doesn't look good in there. Oh, well.

Your home is so warm feeling. I LOVE IT!!!! Did you decide to cover your chair with another fabric or are you going to have it the way it is? It looks very pretty regardless.
Take care,

I LOVE everything!!
