Our newly rearranged home

As we are enjoying our new homeschool room, I was asked to make sure I posted about where we actually had dinner now. hee hee
We have a dining room, you know... for dining! Yep, that's right!
We can sit down, have a meal. Linger at the table... talk, enjoy, laugh. We have our family devotions around this table and if need be, it can be extra seating for guests.
This was taken yesterday evening... it is dark, but so cozy. It has rained all day for two days straight, and if we weren't desperate for milk, I wouldn't have left the house at... all!!!!
This photo was taken before we switched the chairs around.
To the right of the table is our collage of pictures that is very much *in progress*. I am trying hard to make sure to take more, and better pictures to add soon.
We may have to make some changes here... we are hoping to add a wood heater soon and it looks like this is the wall that will be used.  So the family collage will have to go above the couch in the living room if that happens.
Here's what it looks like today.
Now, if you were sitting in the living room the dining area looks like this...

 Again, this was taken during the day before we swapped chairs.

As you enter the front door you would see the above.

If you were here visiting with us, you could watch some classic Star Trek with the family.

 This is what the other side of the long room looks like. This is our living room.

It's so cozy, so homey... so much... *us*.
I love it and so does the family!
We love our home!

I encourage you... if you are feeling the need for a fresh perspective in your home, try changing your room up a little bit. It really can do wonders! Use your imagination and have fun... it costs nothing but a little hard work.
Have fun!



  1. I always love to see what you come up with next. You are truly inspiring and have wonderful creativity Chas! Everything looks so great and homey!!!

  2. I love the color on the walls it makes the room so warm. Love the family relaxing picture. You sure are creative Chas. I remember seeing your Daughters room before on here and the colors are her wall are so alive as well,your color choices are great. (by looking at your colors,My daughter's new room colors would be on your list) Hehe Lime green and yellow.
    Take care and have a wonderful day.
    PS we got 2 days of rain too.
