Did you just get here from Angie’s house at the Country Chic Cottage? Her home is so cozy and beautiful (so make sure you didn’t miss her stop on the tour!)

I’m so glad to have you over for the 2013 Summer Tour of Homes.

It’s hot outside for sure. These North Carolina summers are hot and humid.

Here’s a glass of sweet tea for you to cool off. Come on in and take a load off in our mudroom.

In fact, feel free to kick off your shoes and relax with me for the next few cyber minutes. I’m not going to talk much, instead I’ll let you soak up the sights. Feel free to ask your questions or leave a comment after you’re done.

I promised I wouldn’t talk much, but I have to tell you that this is our brand new kitchen!

It’s still not complete because I have to install the tile on the backsplash and the wall to the right of the sink. But, it’s a far cry from where our kitchen was several months ago after we had an unfortunate plumbing leak.

We truly made lemonade out of that big serving of wet, moldy, asbestos and termite damaged lemons!

    Super cute!!! Wish you could do my house : )

    Question… What paint colors did you use in your house? What trim colors? I need some good neutrals and a soft white color for trim.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    WOW! I love how you have decorated your screened porch. It’s beautiful and looks so comfortable and inviting! We downsized 9 years ago and I think bedsides my vast amount of storage space in our former home, we miss the screened in porch most of all. Think it is because we built it ourselves in 1995, a year after my DH retired. I didn’t know about blogs back then because there are so many blogs that I follow that would have inspired me to decorate it better. It is used by the current owners now as a toy garage for her day care she runs out of the home. When I go back to visit our next door neighbors and I look over to our former home, it breaks my heart but the new owners are such lovely people and a lot of fun.

      Betty, what a sweet story about you and your husband building that screen porch. I bet someday when the current owners no longer run a daycare they’ll appreciate it as an extension of the home. When our kids were younger it looked like a toy garage too ;-D.

    Hi Brittany,

    I am in awe. Your home is so cozy and colorful. I love the kitchen and your porch and the craft room and oh well all of it. Did this happen over years or all at once. It looks like it evolved over time with lots of love!
    I admire all of your woodworking skills too. I enjoyed the class at Haven so much!
    Thank you for giving me courage to try to do it myself!

      Cheryl, thank you for the compliment. It’s been about 6 years in the making, but most of the work has been done in the past 3 years when I started blogging ;-). So glad you came to our class at Haven, I do hope we inspired you.
