What I Love About My Home!

I love Karla's idea about showing what we love about our homes. How much fun is it to get a look inside of other's homes and the different ways we all decorate! Well first I have to mention that I love my entry hall table at Christmas because it was just featured in Romantic Country's Winter 2007 issue. I am mentioned on pg. 71. A small pic but a big deal to me since it is my first! I am so excited, I think I will frame it! You can even see our family pic in the photo. My kids thought that was so cool!

I love this sign because it is so true!

This chandelier in my kitchen is another thing I love - it's a $10 church sale find! The bulbs cost more. And of course I added the shades, berry rings and crystals.

A couple of more favorites - my girls' rooms!

I have many more to share. I will try to add more later today!

Beautiful rooms, Dawn! I especially love the fabric swagged above your daughters beds.

It is so wonderful that your home was featured in my favorite new magazine. I haven't been able to locate one yet. Hopefully, I'll find it soon.

And Christmas is such a special time to decorate. I would certainly frame the article if I were you!!

Thanks for sharing!

What beautiful rooms. With 3 boys I don't have the opportunity to create rooms like this but so would if we had a house full of girls. So romantic and sweet!
Thanks for sharing.

Whgat beautiful rooms, Dawn! I can see that your home is a haven for your family and friends.

Dawn,the tiny snippets I was able to see in the photo's only made me want to see more of your gorgeous home!! Wow, your home looks like from the magazines!

I have to get the issue of the mag.
that you're featured in...I need to see your entry hall! I can't imagine how proud you must feel to be featured! How in the world does that work? Do you send in photo's? Or do you write, then they come out and photograph your pretties? It boggles my mind! lol..

You truly deserve the recognition Dawn, I hope you intend on framing that piece! What a conversation starter that one is!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting, I really appreciate it!

My Sunday with Roxie was the best time I've had in ages! I laughed so hard so many times, my cheeks hurt!
Some day, maybe we (all MMP women) will be able to gather and meet for a weekend.. What a treat that would be! I would be non-stop rambling the entire time! lol.. And don't offer me coffee, or I'll never hush up! lol..

Big hugs to you Dawn~
