Welcome from Kelly's Korner, I hope you enjoy our Living Room Tour
It's time for the 4 Moms 35 Kids Home Tour!! Today is Living Rooms. Be sure to see all the other fine homes at Life in a Shoe.
Here is a the view when you enter the front door, the first thing you see is the Music Wall. Danes banjo, Kegans mandolin, Donagans guitar, there's also a scrub board and small guitar there too for when the littles want to join in. Dane LOVES his banjo and is very good, in this humble wife's opinion. He longs for us all to play together some day.
This is the view from the master bedroom, here we have Dane's big chair, our leather couch, and some child back there down the hall. We LOVE our leather couch and chair, they are perfect for a family our size. I don't know why we didn't get them sooner. These were bought last year at a black Thursday sale. We got a great deal on them!! And they still look brand new, which is saying something for this house!
This is a shot behind the couch, we left the castle and blocks the littles got for Christmas here quite by accident, but they love to play with them back there. They are allowed to play quietly while we have read alouds for school, or when we are watching a educational video. By the way our TV is just a screen we use it for movies and Wii only no real TV.
These are the bookshelves that flank our wood stove, they hold about half of our families books!! You can see our Easton Press book collection on the top shelves. Having good quality books to pass on to the next generations is very important to Dane and I. As soon as you finish reading one of these books you may very carefully write your name and date in the front, we hope to have a great family history recorded in these books!
Our wood stove works great, too great, most of the time it runs us out of the room because it's so hot! But we're glad we got it, it's nice to not have to depend on the propane man for heat!
Well, that's about it for our living room, not very big or fancy, but we sure like to spend time together in it!! Oh, you'll notice our walls are all pretty dark, I love these colors, my house can look like fall anytime of the year!! plus you can't see all the finger smudges and assorted things that get smeared on walls by small children!! Although if they get bumped you do get a nice white mark!
Have a wonderful day,
Sweet baby Octavian and my sweet doggie India sharing some quality time!
