I really don't know what is wrong with my camera, the pics seem a bit fuzzy, maybe it's not the camera, just the person operating it!! Anyway, here are some recent pics of the house, mostly just some fall decor. I didn't go overboard this year, I just didn't feel up to it and the house is feeling stuffed as it is, I really just need to declutter. Oh, and a side note to this post while we are on the subject of decluttering. My friend Debbie and I are going to have an "antiques and decor" sale sometime during the first week of November. We both have stuff we have collected that we no longer want/need/ or use so it's time to let it go. If you are in the area, let me know!
On to the pics...
This is a large floorcloth that I made this summer. I cheated and used the back side of a piece of cheap vinyl flooring.
Here is a larger view, it sits under a small table in my family room in front of the fireplace.
And here are two smaller ones I made for my kitchen. I really hate the tiles floors, so I'm trying to hide them a bit. Eventually I want to put down wide pumpkin pine flooring and get rid of the tile all together.
Here is a closeup of the chicken one.
And the cow one.
Here is the mudroom. Ick, again with the vastness of tile! And I still want to change the light fixture, but that requires money, LOL!
Eek, what a bad pic, but it will have to do for now. This is right by the door in the mudroom.
Hanging on the mudroom wall, near the halfbath. Sorry again for the bad pic.
Hutch in the mudroom. It sits between the hall closet and the bathroom.
Looking into the half bath in the mudroom.
I think I will cut the tour here, as this post is getting picture heavy as it is. I will continue tomorrow.
You know when you haven't done something in soooo long, it's really hard to get back into it. I kept telling myself that I was going to start blogging again, and even took pics of lots of stuff with the intention of blogging it. But, life just happens and I just didn't get around to it.
However, tonight, I'm giving it a try again.
So, the big question is, where do I start? Should I go back months or should I start with today. I think I will just start by sharing some outside pics of the house.
The new planting bed we put in this summer. It still needs some work but it will have to wait until next year. We added it because the leech field is in this part of the yard and the grass wouldn't grow well, so I wanted a planting bed to give more color to the yard.
A close up of one of the old wheelbarrows that I got this summer at a big yard sale.
The front porch. I added metal hanging bats to the ceiling, if I get a chance I will take a new pic. Oh, and there is the other wheelbarrow I got along with the old wicker rocker(already painted in a vintage pumpkin color, perfect for a Fall porch). The crock on the right, I got for $10 at another yard sale this summer.
Porch again. The rocker didn't have a seat, so my oldest son made a wood one for it and it works perfect, now I just need to make something for the back rest. The little pumpkins are all from our garden, didn't get any big ones, but lots of little ones!
This picture was taken after the first frost, so the birdhouse gourds on the fence look horrible. This is an old plow that I got at yet another yard sale this summer, I snatched it up when I saw the price was only $15.
Here are the gourds in their prime, before the frost.
The front door kitchen vegetable garden.
Another view of the garden. It was an experiment this year, next year we know what will be better to plant.
A small portion of the bounty from our garden.
Sunflowers that the boys planted this year.
So that's it for tonight. Tomorrow I will share the inside.
