More house and a yard any kid would love!

Ya know, thinking up titles is the hardest part of blogging. Well, I'm finishing off the home tour today, wish me luck in finding someone else to bug for pictures.


Ok, this cute little table is in the entrance way of there home.

This is my sweet niece that is getting married, I hope no one minds their picture being on my blog. This is their living room area, I wish I would have gotten a better picture but oh well.

Don't you just love these ceilings. If I remember right, these are actually beams that are covered with molding, a lot cheaper than huge decorative beams.

This is their fire place. I love this family picture, they have the cutest kids ever.

I love this built in shelf for the Television.



I love, love, love this shelf she has hanging up in their dining room.

Some people asked how it was possible that the kids rooms were so clean, well here is why. There is a playroom downstairs. I really like how she has the toys organized in these cute baskets.

On the wall there is art by her kids that is framed, what little kid wouldn't love this.

When you walk in from the garage, each child has their own space for coats and back packs, and a basket for odds and ends, I love this idea.



Ok, now for the outside...................



You can't see it too well, but there is a huge swing and a pit trampoline.

I love this fire pit, my SIL says they use it quite a bit also.

I wish this picture was better, but isn't this a beautiful garden!

And here is their deck with their outside dining room set.

This is a picture from the front of their home. I love the ivy growing up the rock walls. The thing I like best about their yard is it's low maintnance. I know easy for me to say, but there are no flowere or anything, just shrubs and trees and it's beautiful.



Thanks so much to my sister n' law and brother n' law for letting me take pictures of their home. I hope you all enjoyed the tour!

Their house is beautiful, but what I can't get over is the scenery. To walk out in your backyard and see that everyday. Wow! Love the shelf too!

Is this the same SIL who has the trellis over the garage? I loved that! The fire pit is awesome too. Oh! And the porch! I give it three thumbs up. Well, if I HAD three thumbs I would.

Wish I could swap houses with this one. That kitchen takes my breath away! I am dreaming of granit counter tops too. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I would love to have a fire pit, but we don't have any place to put one--we back onto a greenbelt and I think a firepit in our backyard would light some trees on fire!
