Today is Karla's over at Karla's Cottage "What do you love about your home" party. I can't wait to get some time to go and see every one's beautiful homes. I was again torn about doing this. I am in the middle of a mess with my house. The kitchen is torn apart, we are starting to take down very low ceilings in the living room, the bathroom upstairs has plumbing off for a leak to be fixed and is being torn apart. With all that I really don't feel like I'm playing in the same league with many of the other beautiful homes that I see on so many blogs.
But I have a old farmhouse, yes it's old, the ceilings are old, the floors aren't
perfect, the walls have original plaster that needs upkeep, heck there is always something that needs upkeep but I love my house quirks and all. I love the tin roof with it's bit of rusty spots.
....I love my porch that I am in the process of painting. When I am finished I will be able to sit out in my wicker furniture or rocking chair again
....I love my bathroom ceiling that I did a faux treatment on. I used wallpaper and metallic paint to achieve a coppered look
....I love my studio, it's not huge or fancy, it's not even exactly how I want it yet but it's mine and it's where my artistic side has been waking up.
....and I love my bedroom, it's not perfect; we have a tub in it, it's not how I want it yet, it hasn't even been painted and the floors need to be sanded but it's
my sanctuary and it is kind of nice to soak in a bath and when you're finished hop right into bed.
Even though I haven't been able to do everything I have envisioned to the house, whether lack of time or funds. I am grateful I have a home, a roof over my head and I have the ability to even do these things. I may not have the home of most people's dreams but it's my favorite place in the world, my dream and it's what I love.
Thanks so much for stopping by my porch.
