i love the kitchen windowsill. why? you'll see...
And now for a brief tour. It's a rather cloudy day for pictures but many of you have been wanting to see the place. Here it is! Except for the bedroom, which is currently in chaos.
The nice big kitchen with lots of counter space:
The entry/living room (keep in mind that 1. we haven't painted yet 2. we don't quite have all our furniture 3. nothing is up on the walls...):
The library and spiral staircase. ahh, i really love this room. The light through that window is fantastic...
The upstairs (affectionately referred to as the "tree house") is home to our little family/tv room at the top of the stairs and our bedroom next door. it is cozy (hot in the summer but warm, we hope, in the winter)!
These windows (in the living room) are my favorite (actually, can i have favorites? the kitchen windows are great, too. i just really appreciate light :)). in the daytime, the sun shines through the green leaves of those big beautiful trees and throws shadows across the wood floor. at night, the street lamps cast an eerie glow through their branches and fill the room with quiet light. i told you, i love these windows.
That's our little home. God has been so good to us and we are very grateful :)
