It's the second week of Kellys Show Us Where You Live Friday and its living rooms.  Now I will be all caught up till this Friday which will be Guest Bedrooms which is one of my favorite rooms in this house.


This is where Mikee sits all the time the chair to the left.  I sit in the other if I am not watching tv and we are just talking or I am going through magazines.  Under the chest in between the chairs is a basket that you can't see that I put all Mikees recent magazines and whatever books he is reading at the time.  He reads so much I can't leave them on the coffee table to junky for me!

This is across from the chairs and where I lay when I watch a movie.  One of my favorite things in this room are my tortoise lamps.  I had looked forever for lamps and had given up then ran across these in a warehouse and new they would be perfect!  I don't really have a lot of pairs in my house as far as furniture and such I really like to mix it up.

This is the fireplace and I just love how it turned out.  It was covered with wood and we took it all down had the brick cleaned and sealed then built the two bookcases in  to hold all the tv and stereo things I didn't want seen.  Chrissy would not move when I was taking these pictures she wanted in them for sure.

I love family photos.  They really make a home home.  The bumble bee was Brady's first Halloween and the cute little bald fellow on the left is my nephew Grayson.  The other Brady was about 2 in that picture.

This is one of my antique trays that I collect and just love.  I only have a few because they are so expensive and I can't just buy them all the time plus I hardly ever come across true antique ones that often.

These hang behind the sofa under the steps.  I try to do a professional family photo every other year.

I really did not want a flat screen but gave in to it and this was where I wanted to put it but my husband wanted it over the fireplace!  I won, thank goodness.

Hi Cyndi,
Your home is beautiful. I want to have my cabinets glazed black, and your pictures have inspired me to get this done as soon as possible. Your home is so warm and inviting. Thanks for sharing.
