U can tell what I've been up to....

I wanted to post more pics of my entry, living room and dining room. Since I got my new chairs and painted my walls last month it sort of turned into this process as I'm sure you know how that happens. I posted everything backwards so bear with me
Wow I just learned if you don't resize your pics down you can enlarge all these for a better view...
so click to enlarge

These are beautiful pictures. Among other things, I love the chandelier in your dining room, the chairs are great, and the wire baskets on top of the cabinet are so neat. Also, the sconces in the living room are fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

You have a lovely home. The layered mirrors is a yummy detail, one of many I enjoyed looking at. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Cheryl,
I agree with the other posters, I love the chandelier. And I really like all of the mirrors. I want to do something like that in my home, but I don't have that many mirrors. Good excuse to go shopping.
Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Girl, do I look stoopid? Why on earth would I want you to stop being redundant!!! I am getting so inspired to get off my fanny and do something differnt just from looking at your fabulous home. Keep 'em coming and don't be surprised if I steal, I mean borrow some of your over the top ideas for myself. I love it all. Tn'T

The handpainting on the mirror, the stacked mirrors, the crispness, the wall color (what is it?). It's all wonderful! Thanks for sharing your home with me. It's lovely. ~Mindy

Love it, love it! I am totally inspired to "redo" some areas of my house...then I realized what kind of work goes into it...and then I realize I stay up after midnight every night now just getting things caught up, and it hits me...Yeah...maybe next year... So, yes -- you should not only write a design book but also hire a staff that can go to clients' homes and do all the work for us!! :) You're the next Candace Olsen!!! :)

The pictures are beautiful and I love your dining room. The whole HOUSE is gorgeous.

Interesting comment about the picture size. I've been trying to figure out why MY pictures don't get larger when you click on them. I'm going to try that and see if I can fix my issues. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and fun treasures.

Hi Cheryl, Everything is absolutely gorgeous. Your home is getting richer by the moment. I have alot of gold, but boy I would love to have some rooms with silver in it. It gives the room a whole different look. Really enjoyed these pictures, It kinda makes you want to take another look at what you have to redecorate.HAHA

Thank-you so much for stopping by. I love~~love your home. We have the same taste. I don't have color in my home just white with wood. I use your blog to help me decorate. It's hard I want a cottage look and homey but I'm not crazy about alot of color so I'm trying to get that effect with different colors of white and tans.
Have a blessed day,
