The long overdue promised Home Tour

Before Christmas one of my favorite blogging friends Mimi Sue (and now I know her in real life too) set up a home tour of some of the old historic houses in our neighborhood. I was in heaven, I've wanted to sneak in to some of these house since we moved here four years ago. So today I'm going to show off one of my most favorite homes on this tour. The only bad thing, my cheap piece of hud camera would only take like 40 pictures, so I didn't get near as many pictures as I would have liked.
This is Tiffany's house. We refer to her as "cute Tiffany" hope she doesn't mind. But I've seen her house now, so were like good friends right? I'm pretty much in love with this house. I want this house, no wait I need this house.


This first few pictures are of her front room. Isn't it so cute and cozy! I love the framed S on the wall, I may need to try and copy that idea!

More cute S's! Her and her mom made these beautiful curtains and reupholstered all the furniture in this room.


Did I mention she has two year old twins and is expecting #3? How on earth does she have time to create all this cute stuff?






This is her adorable dining room! I am currently in the process of stealing an idea from this room and you can bet I'll be blogging about it. You can see her chandelier at night when you drive by, (I'm scaring myself, I sound like such a stalker) Anyhow, that's when I decided I needed one!

Did I mention that she is the one I bought my old window from? Isn't this one cute!


Her Bedroom! I love this quilt, I'm betting she made it!




This is her twins bathroom. I LOVE that shower curtain, yes it's a quilt. Arn't those letters above her kids towels cute!



This is her twins bedroom. She is so stinkin creative, she doesn't even blog, so she actually came up with all these cute things on her own.


Can you see why I love this house! One of these day's when I'm out walking I will have to take a picture of the front of it, it's just as cute!

Um. My name is Tiffany and my last name starts with "S". I'm kind of feeling like this should be my house! :) Alas, mine is nothing near as cute as hers. Love that couch!

This is adorable! What a fun creative woman!

Aubrey said...

That was my favorite house to see.

You know I think she must have sewed all her squares individually because I can't see a pattern indicating she sewed strips. Not to stres you out or anything. ;)

Carrie said...

What a cute house I love the S I might have to copy that somehow!

Christine said...

You have such a good eye for color. Everything looks so warm and cozy!

Mrs. Trixi said...

Oh, yes, I want to see the front. I love the colors, the fabrics, the curtains just everything.

Rambling Girl said...

My oh my....I love this house to especially the childrens room...Wish I was kid and could have one like that. Thanks for sharing your firends home...You really need to tell her to blog so she can share all her wonderful ideas on here...better yet an etsy store to sell her crafts.

Ok, So I can identify with the scary stalker theme. There are some blog spots I live on. LOL I can't wait to see what you are going to be blogging about from an idea from Tiffany's house. Thanks for the photo's! Share some more.
PS...... you don't do any shabby jobs yourself:)

julie & joe said...

mercyottis said...

I so love how this works:) Have away!Lewaina

Becky said...

Love the tour! Red is my favorite color to decorate with.

Mimi Sue said...

Isn't she the cutest? Love her. She's the new enrichment leader and we're doing some cute things. A cupcake pincushion, valentine cards, and covered box with home made chocolates. All cute of course. We made those initials when I was enrichment leader I have the W pattern. Mimi

This Country Girl said...

What a great tour! You can tell she loves to decorate! Thanks for sharing! Everything is beautiful!

At Home In Georgia said...

I LOVE those little kids beds.

joelandbecca said...

Love it all!!!! And I am so like that-I walk or drive by places and stare inside at night, because I love to see how it is decorated! That is why bloging is so liberating-it is like people are giving me permission to peek!

mommy2gabby said...

Hi Nicole,

Just wanted to let you know that I have tagged you on my blog!

;) Jody

frillsfluffandtrucks said...

Hi Nicole!

No, you're right--I did take a couple of months off from blogging...but I'm getting back into the swing of things again now. :)

beth at aunties said...

Nicole,

This Miss S is way, way talented! A quilt for the curtain...I love it!

The reason she doesn't blog is probably so she can create...

When my daughter's fourth baby arrived is when my daughter went private and turned hers into a family journal. She also got rid of the 'Blog' pressure of visiting and having to post.

She doesn't go to D.I. as much as she reads the online KSL ads. They have found and sold some great pieces there.

You are a sweetheart...Thanks for sharing these photos' and I wonder if anybody can come to your enrichments???
They sound fun and youthful:)

Brooke said...

Holy Schnikes that girl needs to blog! What a fantastic house!!! Thanks for sharing!

ceekay said...

First of all your friend's home is lovely. She definately is very creative!
Yes, we do eat at our table. The only thing is we use everyday glasses. My hubby doesn't want to break the goblets. They are rather delicate, but then again, they only were $1.00!
I am leaving the snowflake table setting until February...I am sure you know what I will be doing then!
Have a great week!

Heidi said...

What a cute house! You totally sound like a stalker... JUST KIDDING! You are so cute Nicole. I remember when you used to get excited about stuff up at college! You were so cute to watch:-) I may have to try some of the things she did in her house!

Mimi Sue said...

Well, you know I've been sorting and purging and I think I must've purged that pattern. I saw it last week but when I tried to find it it wasn't in the pattern drawer. Sorry. But this is how we made the patterns. Find a font you like that is wide. Make it as big as you can on your printer then take it down to kinkos and make it as big as you want. Then cut into pieces. Wonderunder, fabric, applique. I do have a w that is finished and framed if you want to use it as a guide. Let me know.

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

WOW! That girl has got some skills. I especially love the framed S...also my monogram.

Btw, the before and afters of your kitchen are AMAZING! I am all about black cabinets. and paired with the stainless, it's gorgeous!

Thanks for stopping by my blog...hope you'll be back!

~Amanda

Chrissie Grace said...

What a warm inviting home! Thanks for sharing. I've been searching your blog for the original kitchen post, but I can't find it. I love your re-do! Did you do it yourself or was it a professional job?
Thanks,
Chrissie

What a cute house!!! I think Matt would be happy if I was more of decorator --- I guess will all the kid mess I am just afraid of what cozy would look like.

Aren't you excited for your new camera?

Shannon said...

WheresMyAngels said...

Oh I love your home tours. Although, you need a better camera! Couse, at least you have one!! lol I have a good camera a Canon XTI but I lost my battery charger:(

I love the framed Letters, so cool. Course there was ALOT about it I loved!

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

OK, that is just ridiculous. I love the little kid's room with the personalized pillows on them! Now I want to copy her! Thanks for giving us a peek! :)

The Berry's Patch said...

I love that lamp in the front room. Her house is adorable. Does she know how many more ideas she could come up with if she blogged? I can't imagine life without blogging anymore. Can you?

Mimi Sue said...

Call me and let me know when you're coming. I need to get it down and dust it. Mimi

Mimi Sue said...

Can you send me your email? I couldn't find it on your blog. Do I have it? I can't remember...When I was your age my brain worked better...Mimi

Tonya said...

Oh, I've been a bad blogger friend...I'm sorry I haven't checked on you for so long! I'll tell ya, this homeschoolin' thing is serious business! ;)

I love your friends house! Those S's on the wall are adorable! I can't wait to see what you're creating that is from this home!

Hope you and your family had a fabulous Christmas!

Angie said...

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

This home was so cozy and wonderful. I think I had to pick my chin up off the ground after looking at that sweet red painted bed. So many things to love!!

Hope you are doing well! Did you ever end up catching that mouse?

LisaJanelle said...

I so love all the colors and country coziness her house brings to the eyes. I too have utilized a country quilt for my shower curtain. Please stop my my blog and enjoy the coziness of my warm heart cozy home. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures with us...how inspiring!...LisaJanelle
