Take a Peak Inside My Home

Since I can't find my digital camera, my mom was nice enough to stop by yesterday and take some pictures for me. Thanks Mommy! I wanted to share a few pictures of my home. It's definitely a work in progress - but I'm getting there!

My star tree. I saw these stars at Yorktowne Shoppe and snatched them up. She was planning to display the same type of tree in her shop but no more, ha! As I was grabbing all of them, she asked what I was planning to do. When I told her she just started laughing. At first I thought it was at my idea and I said Patty, you don't think that would be darling? She said Oh yeah, you just beat me to it!

My mantle with my new barn star! Joy and jubilance can only describe it.

You can't read the writing on the picture but it says "Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often" - the mantra of Nunnie's Attic!

My dining room table all ready for fall. Most often I'm burning a tea light in those little cups. Right now they were holding Hershey Kisses. Those are gone too!

The Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies I baked to surprise and appease my husband. There are 6 left! If you look really close, you'll see one of my cats (Smidgen) sleeping on the chair in the upper left hand corner. That's my Daddy's elbow on the table. Hee hee. Love him!

I used to do my home in primitive country and some of those things are still lingering around. I love those really thin trees like your stars are on. I think I'm going to get one and tie little antique tea cups on it!
