Lake House Tour

So happy to be here today
 
sharing some bits and pieces of our Lake Home!
 
Debbiedoos started the idea

when she invited me to be on her Tour of Homes.
 
It's fun to get a glimpse of how friends decorate and live in their homes.

So I want to share a few of my home spaces with you,

my creative "home making" friends!

..........................................
 
When Mark and I became empty nesters
 
we moved to the Lake.
 
Living at the lake is mostly about the outdoors.
 
But when you live on a lake in Nebraska,
 
you better enjoy the inside too!
 
 
So this is the lake side view of our home.
(minus a few summer patio plants, red umbrella, tiki torches...)
 
 
 
 
 
Well, you get the idea.
 
It's January
 
and this is our view today...
 
 
 
 
So, come inside
 
and I'll show you the view from the inside out.
 
 
 
 
Now for the inside...
 
 
 
 
 
You can find paint details on The Starbucks Snowman Tray here
 
 
This is my kitchen.
 
 
 
 
Over by the fridge in the corner
 
we keep a drink station when we entertain.
 
Right now it looks like this.
 
 
 
I painted a digital art poster in photoshop
 
and switched out her summer hat
 
to winter warmers.
 
In the summer she looks like this.
 
 
 
 
We have stained concrete floors which I love.
 
It is so practical to sweep up sand from swimmers.
 
 
  
 
Pin It!
 
If you've visited my blog before
 
you have probably seen this corner many times.
 
I use it to photograph a lot of painted furniture.
 
 
 
 
 
 
You can also find details on the Photo Display Board
 
 
 
At the top of the stairs is my paint table.
 
 
 
 
 
The upstairs is open to the master bedroom in the back.
 
I have my old new Rocker in the corner.
 
 
 
 
Here is one of our bathrooms
 
 
 
 
 
Love my work area!
 
 
 
 
 
It was fun to show you some of our home spaces.
 
I especially like it when those spaces are filled with
 
chatting and laughter.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thank you for coming on the tour!
 
 
 
 
 
Here's to Happy Handmade Homes!

Thank girls!
Yes, the outdoors is the big pull here. Love all of the nature. We are right beside the river as well so we see lots of geese, pelicans, ducks, eagles, gulls...okay see I'm a nature nut,
Deb
