HOME TOUR #3...Finally..

Here it is!  I can not believe how long this tour business has taken me and there will still have to be one or two more to show you my whole townhome.  So if you can be very patient with me and grab a cup of coffee or whatever you prefer...this is loaded with fact I just deleted some from this post because I am sure you would drift off if there were too many...
So here goes:

To make it a little easier to follow along I thought I'd include a floor plan for you...
BTW...this view is reversed so when I say "on the left, it is really "on the right."  You get it...  

This is what you see when you come in the front door

On the left you will pass the stairs to the lower level

Then you should go by the hutch...I know you have seen this before but I don't want you to get lost  (wink!)

Then make a quick left turn and on your left you will see this wall cabinet which was an amazing find at T.J. Maxx

Continue down the hall (you have already seen the laundry room on the left in another post) so keep on and you will see this vignette just across the doorway to the laundry room

Below you are into the entry hall into the Master Bedroom and on the left wall is a grouping of pictures of my daughters two and five year sketches, "First Day of School" & up to when Karen was in high school and Kathy in college

Now you are through the entry to the Master Bedroom...going around the room starting on your left is the old jelly cupboard and the rake I have used in several rooms.  (In fact, you have probably seen most of this before in my California house! (Smile!)

Then of course, the bed.  This year I added the sheer dressing on the posts...anything to make it look cozy in Minnesota winters!

Colin, my wonderful Great-Grandson has a Kitty just like I have on my bed.  He calls it his "Meow" and takes it everywhere.
Oh what fun to have a Great-Grandson!!

This is a little reading corner in the bedroom...what did I just say?
HA!  I have never even SAT in the "reading corner!"  But it is good to pile "things" on...if you know what I mean!  (wink!)  

I don't care what "they" say...I have to have a TV in my bedroom.  Still can't figure what to hang above it...if anything?

Now just past the TV I have a marvelous floor mirror...from IKEA no less!  Since I don't have a "REAL" dresser I could never tell what I looked like when I was dressed so this solved my situation very nicely!  (Smile!)
(Boxes are hiding an electric cord & outlet.)

On the way out of my bedroom you will see a small grouping:
Our Wedding Picture (Sept. 25, 1951) 
the small shelf with a picture of when we danced in The World's Country Western Dance Competition
October of 1997
at the DisneyLand Hotel

Well, my blogging buddies, that is enough for today.
But before I go I see I have gotten some new followers...welcome, welcome, welcome to my blog and thank you for following!
Come back and leave me a comment  and I will do the same for you!

                 * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *                     

Next time will be Tour #4 which will include the bathrooms, the lower level and a simple tutorial on dressing up a boring bathroom landscape mirror...easy, peasy!

Until next time...
