enjoy my joy!
what front porch would be complete without a couple of lovely pumpkins to go with the season? these beautiful pumpkins just happen to be grown by a friend of mine.
the kitchen was the first room i went to work on and the first one to be almost completely finished. still in need of curtains and a few wall hangings. i also need to get to work organizing the pantry. but for the most part all is settled in the kitchen.
st. francis watching over. jeremiah and i love catholic iconography. mostly because we honor and desire to learn from the lives of "saints" like st. francis.
some pretty wine bottles and a nice virgen de guadalupe candle for our outside table.
i love this bookcase! jeremiah and i found it on the side of the road in noda. it is now a main feature in our living room.
a beautiful wooden frame that jeremiah's brother made us as a wedding present.
can you see the little wire figurines? there is a boy, a girl and a bike. they were handmade for me by my sweet, sweet husband.
i decided to lay out all my knicks knacks and odds & ends while i decorate so i can easily see what all i have to use.
come sit for a while.
our fall "mantlescape". i love decorating so much. it brings me a lot of joy. especially, when fall foliage and pumpkins are involved.
one lone mouse that i found on the couch this morning. he went quite well with the colors of the pillow and couch.
i always have an aloe plant handy in the kitchen. never know when you may need some aloe for that pesky oven burn!
