Good Monday morning everyone. First my apologies for not being around for Pink Saturday. I missed everyone so much. I lost internet connection on Friday morning and it returned Saturday evening. We are fine from the hurricane....just lots of wind and rain and downed branches. The water in the lake rose high enough to be even with the dock. I hope everyone else stayed safe in the storm. My connection is still sporadic so I am trying to get Cielo's "Enchanted Window Party" posted and scheduled before I lose my connection again. Hope you enjoy my "rooms with a view" and click here to send you over to the House in the Roses for a whole list of participating bloggers. Have a super great week and thanks Cielo for hosting. What a fun idea! xoxo Lynn
I wanted to show you several window views in my home today. So let's start in the foyer looking out the front windows on either side of the front door.
This window, in the family room, gets the western sun in the late afternoons and the early evening. That tree there is a pink dogwood and when it blooms in the Spring time the whole room takes on a pink glow from the sunlight. The stained glass doors hanging in the windows I had made for our last home as cabinet doors to a wet bar. I had no place for them in this present home so hung them in the windows. I love them there. The other windows are also in the family room. It's Ms. Morning Glory's favorite spot to sun bathe.
They say you should always hang a mirror to reflect something pretty or a pretty view. This large mirror hangs on another wall of the family room and reflects the outside and helps bounce the light.
Look at this chair! I bought that chair one day on a total whim. Not very practical but I loved it. I call it my portrait chair. It sits under the living room windows.
Looking out the dining room windows into the summer porch. An antique frame painted white frames another framed photo of my boys when they were little. It hangs in another window in the dining room from navy grosgrain ribbons.
Moving into the kitchen you see the photo I sent Cielo. I love to sit at the kitchen table to eat or work and a lot of times just gaze at the lake and it's happenings.
Lastly, this window is in a guest room. I call it my Hemmingway room. The window has simple muslin tab curtains on it hung from old tiki torch lights. There is also a pair of binoculars hanging there to watch nature on the lake. Bobby G. painted banana leaves on the wall and everyone who has every been in the room thinks the leaves are a real potted plant. Hope you enjoyed my little tour. And hopefully my internet connection will all be working great so I can come see your windows too on Monday.
