I wasn't sure I'd recognize my front door. We always use the garage. This is the picture I took outside our home...and I'm pretty sure it's the front door!
You know me...I did a special effect on it..."Fresco" I think.
Come on in. Let me take you to the office, where I do my writing (when I write from home that is). It's where I'm writing this now. You've seen this room after we painted it in the spring...the "Green Room".
I love this room. I still feel the same peace I did when we originally painted it. The desk is 'new'. It's a $7.00 garage sale find that fit in my car...so it became my 'new' desk. It's got great bones and a nice shape with a beautiful color. I'm still looking for a reading chair for this room, so keep your eyes peeled!
The next space is the main 'living area'. In our home it's the only living/family room, and yes those are the 'girls'. That beauty in the front (the yellow one) is Mimi. She is a Golden Retriever -Cocker Spaniel mix. The little black and white 'runt' in the back is Bubba and she is mostly Rat Terrier, but mutt at heart. This is where we watch movies or 'veg' while daddy is at work or in school. I tried home-schooling them, but they only got to counting and basically just wanted to play...so clearly the brain function comes from their 'dads' side of the family, LOL!
Next is the kitchen and frankly this is more my husband's stomping ground. He does the majority of the cooking...though I do the 'baking' (uh, and I covered the refrigerator with magnets and pictures and 'stuff'. I DO love to bake: cookies, cakes, pies and pretty much anything on the sweet end of the food chain (chocolate or coconut are a bonus).
Finally is the "my choice" photo of a favorite room or spot in the home. I decided not to take you into my bedroom or the 'spare bedroom' because they just aren't done yet. The spare bedroom is actually a work in progress as we speak and I will 'blog' about it upon completion. Suffice to say it's going turquoise (walls) with a 'scripture' border (yes I did say Scripture, as in the Holy Bible). Hey, don't freak on me, I was originally going to do all the walls and the ceiling in the whole Bible, but decided it was too much work and I found this new comforter that is turquoise and lime green and royal blue! You'll see soon! It's slated for the Labor Day weekend project.
One of the favorite 'spots' in our home is the 'cross wall'. I collect crosses from places we've been and some are gifts and some are just unique 'finds'. Without further ado...the cross wall! I 'fresco'd' it as well! Strange how that light circle formed around them isn't it? I didn't do that intentionally, it just turned out that way in photoshop.
Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed this visit to Casa kpjara...and ya'll come back! Next time we'll have coffee and fresh cookies, k?
Have an awesome Friday!
