Good morning friends! Today, as you know, is my favorite day of the month when I have the pleasure of featuring the home of another sweet blogger. This is fun for me because we get to see places we might not normally see and you might meet someone new.
Today we have the honor of visiting JoAnne at
JoAnne's home is cottagey, welcoming, and always inspiring. JoAnne will show you around. :)
We purchased our current home in 2007.
It was built in 1959 and had not been updated at all so we
have been working on it ever since.
The first time we looked at the house, it had been snowing and this
is what the backyard looked like.
This view from the family room is pretty much what sold us.
Six months after moving in, we began a kitchen remodel.
This is what it looks like today and I truly love it.
I have always loved white cabinets and together with all of the light
from the large windows, it is a very bright space that is wonderful to work in.
The kitchen is at the front of the house which I really like.
It has been perfect to see the kids getting on and off the bus.
If you look through the kitchen, you can get a little glimpse
of our entryway in the picture below.
The other room that we spend tons of time in is our family room.
This is where we watch tv, play games and spend time as a family.
The loveseat is where you can usually find me with my iPad reading
blogs or shopping for something online.
The leather furniture worked out great as the kids were growing up but at this point it has seen better days so I'm hoping to replace it sometime in the near future.
I would love to have some pretty slipcovered sofas.
This is our master bedroom.
It's on the first floor which is really nice.
It's not a terribly large room, but it's comfortable and we love it.
I have a passion for decorating and I change things around often.
My favorite part is accessorizing with things I have collected over the years.
Flowers are one of my favorite things too so you will see
a lot of those throughout our home.
And I love decorating with pretty plates.
Anything cottage, farmhouse or vintage is what I love.
And if you haven't guessed it, my favorite color is blue.
This is our chubby kitty, Sox.
I lovingly refer to him as my "blog boss".
He likes to be in charge and know what's going on.
However, it is a tiring job so there is usually lots of napping going on : )
So there you have it ~ a little look at our home and how I indulge my passion
for decorating and making a pretty and comfortable home for my family.
A special thank you to Stacey for inviting me to share my home on
Poofing the Pillows today.
Please come by and visit me at A Pocketful of Blue anytime.
Have a great day!
JoAnne, thank you for allowing me to share your beautiful cottage.
