Tour of Homes, AKA In Which I Embarrass Myself with Pictures of Real Life

In response to encouragement from HolyMama, I am participating in BooMama's Bloggy Tour of Homes. Trouble is this: I have been focussing on learning something new this week and wasn't really thinking about doing this. So what you see is what it's really like here right now.

The front door image ~ Because my frugal people have been blogging about staying cool, I wanted to show this picture. Taken in the morning, and my house faces east, you can see the umbrella is entirely shading one window. Very effective!

Where I blog ~ a corner of the living room. With kids at home, I highly recommend the computer be located in a central place. Promotes accountability and discourages family fragmentation.

The living area ~ from another angle.

The kitchen ~ desperately in need of a makeover, but nowhere near the top of the list yet.

See the dishwasher? It's just for show. We haven't plumbed it in because to use it, we would have to take the drawer next to it out.

And, because this is a fashion blog, my closet:

LOL!! I love the umbrella idea, and our computer is in the middle of our living room too - Lil' Duck isn't old enough to be really on it yet, but it just worked out that way with the outlets and such!

Thanks for showing your lovely home - the red door adds punch and liveliness to it ;) I'll have to do something like this when I move into my new place in Mexico! (Of course, I'll have to post it at this blog though!)...

I love the outside. So beautiful. And you even tied it in by showing your closet. Good work. I recognized your handle from my friend Katrina's blog, I think, so I popped to the bottom!
