Summer Living Room

You should know....  I am not a very fancy person.... although once upon a time many years ago and certainly before kids, I may have been or pretended to be. In fact, I am the complete opposite of fancy. I can't remember the last time I put on a gown ..... my wedding? I have never pressed table or bed linens ....who's got time for that anyways and I prefer using whatever fork I pick up for my salad and main course...and it's usually the same one.

I prefer flip flops to heels and a pony tail over makeup....any day.
And when you live in the country, getting dressed up and being "fancy" is more like jeans, t-shirt and your best perfume. Besides, feeding your donkeys in heels would look, well.... just silly.

I bought this furniture for my last home about ~16 years ago. 
It worked...there.  It does its best to fit in, in this home  .... trying not to be so formal, you know jeans, t- shirt and ponytail type.

Truth is, if I had to build over, I don't think I would even consider having a living room or dining room. Unfortunately, we don't really use these spaces. Besides, I spend more time dusting the space then I do using it....and who's got time for that anyways.

But it is the first room that you see when you walk in the front door of my home, so I want it to be a sign of welcome and a place of comfort.

A space where you would want to sit and chat with me.......

Just leave your heels at the door. I got a pair of flip flops that you can borrow.

What's your preference, flip flops or worries if you choose the later, you are still welcome to come over. In fact, if you want to stay and see the rest of my home, click My Home Tour .
