Come On In. I'll Show You Around! (Part 2)

I left you, at the end of the last post, on the stairs. So lets go on up and I'll show you the bedrooms!

Here is our master bedroom. I love, love, love it!


My favorite part of our bedroom is the picture above the mantle that was taken on our wedding day! It sets the mood...ahh, romance!


Speaking of romance...and it's results...here's the nursery.


The horse ornaments were formerly on a mobile and the little drummer set was on lone from Doc's mom. It is a precious childhood memory!

My grandma, Nana, as my kid's call her, made this wall hanging!


This is the kids' bathroom!


This is Bub's room. He is totally into trains, planes and automobiles. For a long time his nightly prayers always ended with, "Thanks for trains, coal cars, fire engines, and helpiclopters. Amen."

Here is his matchbox car tree.



Now let's go up another flight of stairs. This is where my children (and their cousins) wait to be set free to run downstairs Christmas morning and see what Santa has brought!

At the top of the stairs you'll find this little cabinet with some snacks for guests.

More pictures of the hallway area!



A book shelf stocked with kid books and a cozy place to read them!


This is the "cabin" room. The wallpaper was here when we moved in and I tried to work with it!


Here's the next bedroom...its theme is "He's got the whole world in His hands."

Next is Lou Lou's room with visions of sugar plums dancing around...


Our little tour ends in the "Americana" room. A little patriotic nod to Christmas and our country!



This room houses my collection of little white churches. I try to find one every year. The one that is glowing a shade of pinky-orange is an antique that is almost exactly like one Nana has at her house!


I hope you enjoyed the tour! Check back a little later in the week for a more "in depth" post on Lou Lou's room with all its visions of sugar plum fun!

Wow! You've got a lot of beds to make every morning, don't you? Or is everyone trained to do it themselve?
