Welcome to my house......

To get you updated on the selling of our house...It has NOT sold! I know it will be just a matter of time...............God's time! lol
It occurred to me that I have not shared any of my house in Illinois with you so I decided to share a few pictures.

                               My Kitchen....................it looks so stark! It is staged for showings.
               You can see my old tablescape. My collection of pitchers is on top of the wall desk.

                 A closer look.

                      The living room................the only room that ever got put together! (sort of)
                                                                  No  clutter!
                                                             To me it doesn't look lived in.....
                                                     Can you tell I like vintage & antiques?
                                              I hope to recover my couches once we get settled.
                                      I am dreaming of white, but then I'd have to change everything!
An upstairs view looking down. I love the atrium windows!
Master bedroom
I have to admit this is one room that I was going to redo when we moved in. I did buy my sidetables at a garage sale & Mr. Sweetladyelaine painted them with Annie Sloane paint. When we decided to put the house on the market, Mr. Sweetladyelaine & I put up the tapestry in a hurry.
I didn't want buyers to see blank walls.
 I did go out last week & buy a new comforter set, then returned it.
I didn't like the lamps and overall look of the room, a little to modern!
This is what I bought....
What do you think??
I hate it when you love something then have to change the whole room.
These are the shams and pillows. Oh well........
My Master bathroom.........................I bought the chandelier at a garage sale!
The pictures over the tub are from Bermuda.
I really would like to paint this house in my colors but I will leave that for the next owners to finish. It is all the same neutral color. 
Well there you have it....I have to confess it looks pretty barren! I guess with owning the shop I never decorated this house. We lived here a year when we got laid off. We moved in January 20, 2012.
Now we are on to another adventure to Houston, Texas. Yes, we moved from Houston to Illinois now we are going back! Not bad for someone who was born & raised in Schenectady, New York! Since I have been married we have moved a lot! I really don't like it but its my life. I am going to make lemonade with my lemons!
 I can't wait to decorate my new house. I have been pouring over Pinterest and magazines! I vowed that I will decorate my house before I decide what to do! lol
Thanks for stopping by and see you on Thursday for Tablescape Thursday & Let's Dis
Blessings My Friend,
I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it. (Revelation 3:80
God's master plan for you is the acceptance of Jesus as your Savior so you might receive His ongoing grace in this life and His gift of eternal life in heaven. Heaven is your destiny........


  1. Beautiful statement about Jesus and grace.
    Relocating can be difficult at times or a lot of fun in the adventure. Thinking about you and wishing you all the best with the selling of this house. May Texas be fantastic,

  2. Your home is beautiful. I'm sure your next home will be exactly that . . . HOME. Thanks for stopping by. Loe your blog.

  3. Hello Sweet lady elaine! Your house is beautiful and I think it will sell! Keep praying and the right buyer will find you. I, too, have moved many times and sometimes it is hard, wondering where real home is. You will find a new wonderful place in Texas and we will all look forward to following your adventures. It's easier when you share! Linda
