Des, I'm so excited to see your beautiful Cristmas home in Midwest Living. It's just as dreamy as I imagined it, and more so. I love everything about it, it's so inviting, I want to move in. The babies all look adorable and I'm guessing they love posing for pictures. I can't wait to go read the article, I'd love to have a physical copy. Will try to see if I can order one. Thanks so much for sharing a making my day!
:)Merry Christmas

umm these are amazing. i've often wondered why your home is not in magazines. your home should/could be on the cover of house beautiful in my opinion. absolutely gorgeous.

Wow!!! Your home looks stunning! I am truly impressed with all you've done and the changes you've made!

Does this make the not selling of your home make you more at ease now? I would never want to leave your place!!

Also, can you tell me where you find your seagrass rugs and are they apple mats? They look more coarse than a regular seagrass rug.

You should be very proud of yourself - you've done a fabulous job with your home!!

Take care and happy holidays!

Lisa said...

No matter how beautiful an interior is, I always respond most to the pictures with the dogs in them. Your little dogs make a house a home, don't you agree?
