Tour of Homes '06

Glad you're here! I do love to have people over. We'll sit, drink sweet tea, thumb through magazines and catalogs while our kids play. I don't have Boomama's little icon. It was almost too much for me to get all of the pics uploaded. So here you have it, Casa de Little Bits of Life!




This is the front door. Not very exciting, or so it seems! If you look on the inside of the door, you will see that the left door is a faux door. Just wall on the other side. Ok, still not very exciting. Moving on...














This is our living room. I generally like stuff all over the walls, but since moving in seven months ago, I just haven't gotten the decorating itch. Maybe in the fall. None the less, that is the most comfortable couch in the world. No, you can't sit--or you won't get up. I promise. See that butt imprint in the middle cushion? Yep, that's mine.










My favorite part of the kitchen is not the lovely job the previous owners did remodeling it, but the window over the kitchen sink. And yes, that is a load of dirty dishes in the sink. The washer was full and that is the cleanest my kitchen will be all day. So, I figured I better take advantage.









This is my desk. Although it isn't where my blogging addiction began, it is where I keep it up. Let's just call it what it is, an enabler.










One of my favorite rooms in the house is the girls' bath. The tile and all is original. The pale yellow with little pink flowers in it, couldn't be more perfect for the two princesses that live her. (Um, yeah, I'm the queen in case you were wondering.)

I saw your house, I saw your house. Tell Terry I SAW YOUR HOUSE! I love the art in the living room. And I love double front doors... even if one is fake!

~Jennifer said...

LOVELY home! and that couch does look comfy.

Grafted Branch said...

You simply must go over to BooMama's place and link yourself. Too good to miss...pretty place! (You can link to BooMama's by anyone on the tour -- even me.) :)

Addie said...

How could that bathroom be more perfect for the girls?!! It just to sweet! I love the charm and character that older homes have. And your right, there's nothing like a big window to look out while your doing that lovely chore.

And look the couch is an L shape, so Boo can take one side, and I can have the other to nap on! ;-)

Rebekah said...

Robin - what a beautiful home! First - love the front door...yeah, it's only half "real" but I still like it. Also, where did you get that couch! It is comfy and pretty! Finally, I love your kitchen! The color scheme and counters are gorgeous! Thanks for letting us in...{smile}

Robin said...

Lovely home! I just love your bathroom! I'd kill to have so much space like that! Thanks for the tour!

I feel so privileged that I've actually seen your house in person:) I still covet your beautiful kitchen, and Addie (mine, not our friend!) will someday covet your girls' bathroom:)

Your home IS just as warm and pretty as it shows in the pictures!!

Thanks for visiting me Robin. My grandsons love the Scooby Doo Room so much! I wish my two granddaughters were nearby too so that they could enjoy it.
Your girly bathroom is lovely, as is your entire home :-)

Oh, loved taking the tour! Gorgeous door, wonderful kitchen, sweet girls' bathroom! And loved how you presented everything...thanks for such a fun tour!

I didn't realize I wasn't linked to Boomama's until last evening...couldn't figure out why too many people weren't droppin' in...tehe.
Glad you joined in!

Blessings,

Carol said...

Okay, I heard a rumor that you have an absolutely drop-dead gorgeously fabulous dining room suite. I simply must see it. Do post!

And the rest of the house is really nice, too! Very cool artwork in the living room. Beautiful kitchen. Love the details in the bath.

Thanks for the peek inside your lovely home!

Big Mama said...

I love your kitchen. The cabinets and granite are beautiful. I also love the girls' bathroom, it's just so cute and girly!

Carol said...

Wait! I goofed. It's the BEDROOM that I want to see. C'mon! Post, post, post!

Robin said...

Carol, why don't I just send everyone to you and say, "My bedroom furniture looks just like hers!"

Actually, I was erring on the side of not giving out too much personal info--that involves T--on the blog. That room REALLY involves him.=)

momrn2 said...

Lovely home! And I absolutely love the vanity in the bathroom! Beautiful... double sinks and all! Thanks for the tour.

And thanks also for visiting "My Quiet Corner"!

Laura said...

And what a great kitchen!
That couch sure does look comfy!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Kel said...

Great house and thanks for starting the tour from the bottom up! Your countertops are exactly what I want when we say goodbye to the 80's kitchen! Thanks for sharing.

Kristina P (Live Each Moment) said...

GGGRRR! My computers pics aren't working...or blogger. I'll have to check your home later. Sure it's beautiful though!

janice said...

Mama Duck said...

I love the art in the living room! Thanks for sharing!

Heather said...

Thank you for sharing! LOVE the house - I had a couch with a similar fanny print!

BooMama said...

LOOOVE the casa. Exactly what I pictured. And your kitchen is gorgeous.

Nancy said...

Love the kitchen, everything about it. The colors in the den are divine and the front doors great too!
Thanks for sharing.

Stephanie said...

I love the couch. We need new furniture. Comfy is what I am looking for. Like the wood blind in the kitchen too. Thanks for the tour and for stopping by my home!

Amanda said...

I hate new construction and your gorgeous home shows why. I adore that bathroom. Wow. Your house has such character. We bought a house that is custom but it's twenty years old. I love it. I never want to buy a new home again with tiny little baby trees. Oh and that kitchen is a dream kitchen. I am so happy for you and T and how the Lord has blessed you. I remember y'all when you didn't have babies!

PastorMac's Ann said...

First - I got my Diet Dr. Pepper right here beside me as I tour your home - so I course I'm going to love your home. And I do. I'd like to come and try out your couch for a while and check out the "Little Princesses" room.

Love the picture hanging in your living room.

Thanks for the tour. Your home is warm and friendly and inviting!

Jessica said...

Nice home! :) I like that window over the kitchen sink too! :)

Blessed Beyond Measure said...

Very pretty house Robin. I'm with Lori - I love double doors and even the fact that one is faux. And the couch is to die for - could just plop right down!

The Sweet Diva said...

You forgot the best part... your backyard! Where the sun always shines just in the right places and the temperature is bearable. It's the strangest thing but I have witnessed it many times while reading an In Style magazine and sippin some sweet tea with you. Oh doesn't that sound nice!

Kelli said...

I'm I pathetic? I'm still, still, still touring homes. I'm pathetic.

I love your girlie-girl bath! It's so sweet.

And your kitchen counters are beautiful.

THanks for keeping the door open for the (pathetic) straglers.
