Back Through the Years

Welcome everyone! I am most grateful to all of you for your support of my blog. It has been a fun road to travel. Meeting new blogging friends has been the best part. I have learned much through many of your blogs on home design and through that I have carved out my own design “Romantic Farmhouse”.  For almost forty years I decorated my home in the primitive design. When my nest was empty I wanted my new nest to reflect me not the other five family members that lived with me at the time. Since I was single and ready for a change.  I thought that I would show you my little nest through my years of blogging, which will be three years coming up in April. Wow, time goes by so fast! I will be celebrating that with a giveaway so make sure you stop by in April for the details.

Sweet Dreams

Good day to you all! As many of you know I live with my youngest son and his wife and four children, two boys and two girls all under the age of eight. I am not only these children’s grams but also their nanny of sorts while mommy and daddy work. I live in their basement apartment which has two bedrooms, one very lovely kitchen, big bathroom, sitting area and dinning area as well as my own entrance. Since the birth of their last baby girl Izabella the boys have taken up residence in the spare bedroom in basement the apartment with me. You have seen pictures of my decorating this sweet little nest for the past two years. I have not imposed my decor on the upstairs rooms until lately.
