Home Is Where Your Heart Is

This is the last of the virtual tour of our new home. Hopefully, by now, I have had enough practice posting pictures to my blog that I will remember what to do from now on as I wouldn’t want to have to re-learn all of this again…

Of course I couldn’t show our daughter, Shantel’s, room and guest bathroom (she claims that as her own as well…) because I promised her I wouldn’t take pictures of “her rooms”.

As you can see, I love rustic western decor, and I love repurposing things in new ways. For example, in our family room I didn’t want a “typical” coffee table so instead I bought a rustic bench and it servers both as a coffee table and when we have large groups of people over it  provides extra seating. I also have a large tree pot that I bought in a garden store. I loved it because it has steer heads all around it so I put it in the family room with a glass top on it and put a lace topper on it and it makes the perfect side table…

I want people to feel warm and welcomed in my home and not be afraid to touch things. This works out very well in our home since our daughter, Shantel, has to touch everything in order to get around:)

My husband, Bill, and I love to entertain and are always happy when folks drop by to visit. We always have something cold ready to drink, and it doesn’t take me long at all to whip up something to munch on. So, if you ever find yourself anywhere near our ranch, please, do, drop in.

My home is where my heart is and my happiness is when my home is filled with family and friends!!!
