When you first walk in the door, you will be in the mudroom and you will notice the large sign that reads "Where there is Love in the Home, there is Joy in the heart".
Next you will enter the kitchen and will see a lot of old china, (blue willow pattern) and in addition several antique roosters and italian pottery scattered thru out this area. You will also find a Bible on the kitchen table marked with the spot of that days scripture I am meditating on. You will see many family photos attached to the fridge and most likely toys belonging to the kids. (they are all over our little home)
Next room is the family room filled with shelves of books and photos of the kids and nieces and nephews. You will find many bible translations and Christian books sitting next to the Tanakh, the Koran and books by the Dali Lama. You will also see a lot of candles scattered around my home and they will be burning no matter what time of day you enter my home, so enjoy the fragrance. And you will notice more china in the family room displayed on an antique hutch, with one shelf dedicated to my Angel collection. You will find the computer in here, always turned on, with family photos surrounding it.
In the rest of the home you will find more books, both in the master bedroom and the kids rooms. And you will see more photos, candles and collections of every kind. My daughter's room has japanese collections, the master bedroom more antiques, my son's room has military memorabilia. (mostly WWII), and you will see my hubbies old military photos in my son's room, displayed with his medals from the gulf war.
You also will find an ecclectic mix of artwork scattered thru out our home. Some antique paintings, modern day prints brought back from Bermuda, acrylic paintings from a local starving artist sale and art done by my children. You will see that even in a modest size home, you can fill your life with things you love.
But in additon to all this, and most importantly, you will see me and my hubby and 2 kids, our goofy selves and all. And hopefully you will see the love we have for each other and think we are intelligent, creative people who enjoy the simple things in life. Lilly
