~A Home Tour~

Hello everyone! I thought I would take you on a little house tour today. My parents just moved into a new home and sent me some pictures this morning. It has been well taken care of and they are 4th owners.

It is a 1925 Tudor style home and here is the charming front door. Can you see the lion door knocker?


The kitchen is bright and cheery. Of course I love the yellow. :0)


They have done a lot of unpacking this week. The pantry is so cute!


This is an antique light fixture that will hang in the hall. It had to be taken down to get the furniture upstairs!


Here is the diningroom...I love all of the windows in this house!


This is one of my favorite rooms. The yellow and white is so pretty.


When I saw these next pictures I called my mom and said, "I'm moving in!" Here is their wonderful sunroom...


The wall lamp is a nice touch.


I wouldn't get anything done if I had this sunroom. Wouldn't you like to sit here with a cup of coffee or tea? All day long!


I would also like to say a special Happy Birthday to my mom! I hope you are having a wonderful day, Mom! I wish I could be there to celebrate with you. Take a break from the unpacking and eat lots of cake. :0)

Thank you for coming along on the tour with me!

Hello! Wow, that is a very nice place, lucky parents! :-)
Kelly, I can't wait to hear what you're preparing for Easter - I'm having family over for Easter Sunday breakfast and I'm looking for ideas on what to cook and prepare for the table! :-) Help :-) Any neat recipes you usually make for this special day?

Trella said...

Wow! What a lovely home your parents are moving into.

You are right, I would spend all my time in the sunroom. We would certainly do school in there.

Blessings

I am with you Kelli, I would get lost in that sunroom, just wastin' away. Oh I love this house, how charming it is!
Your Easter decorations are adorable. How fun. I really like the little "chick" baskets, those are sweet.
And your flowers are beautiful too. As you can see, i have been away for a little while so I thought I would post all my thoughts on one spot.

Blessings to You

Oh my goodness how beautiful! It looks so cozy and inviting! I love all of the bright colors.

The front door is wonderful also. One of my favorite parts. Looks like they have done a lot of unpacking already! I know they probably can't wait to be done with it!

Oh, Kelli, I want to move in too! It is the perfect color for us, isn't it? I can just imagine how wonderfully relaxing that sunroom will be! The front door is soo charming:) I also wanted to "pop" in and tell you that I will be away from the computer for awhile and that I hope you and your family have a most blessed and happy Easter! Big hugs to you:)
