Stephanie wants pictures of my house, but instead I'm posting a picture I took from my front porch on Wednesday. It had quietly snowed through the night Tuesday and this is what we woke up to. It really is beautiful here, you can see why I love our area we chose to live in. The light posts remind me of Narnia, and the views are incredible, and this is only one angle. You can see three different temples from my front porch when the weather cooperates, I'll have to take pictures of that one day. And I do promise to eventually post pictures of the house, but I don't want to do that until I get it where I want it to be, which might be a while. Last week I bought fabric with my mom to recover some chairs and make cushions for the family room. I was excited that the fabric I wanted, which was already a low $5.99 a yard, was on sale for $3/yard. So I bought 20 yards. I guess I'd better like it!
So it's a little different than what I was looking at online. The colors are more subdued, but there is still the green and blue/aqua I was going for, and the brown ties it all in with my carpet and kitchen cabinets. What do you think? Keep in mind the fabulous price and the somewhat traditional style I like and know that I can throw in some fun and funky pillows and accents to go with it. I like it. Hopefully I'll have some finished pictures of the room by the end of next week.
