Fat Friday.... And My Living/Dining Room Pics

I know what you are thinking... aren't we all horizontally challenged everyday??? My answer is a loud resounding YES! So, in order to keep my perfect score going I am declaring Friday... Fat Friday. Now, I am no cook or baker by any means, but I have a few recipes. After reading many of your blogs you have been sharing recipes all along. There have been cobbler recipes, pies, cakes, brownies, vegetable recipes , OK I could go on and on. Starting today I am going to post recipes that I use here at my house. And I am going to try to post pictures to go with them. I would love to open this up to all of you. Yes this means you... you know the ones who like to stop by and read what boring stuff I have to say and not say HI (lurkers) Patti and Debbie you know who you are LOL. hehe I know both of them are going OMG I can't believe she said that. Anyway, even if you are not a blogger you can still leave a comment. I will post directions in the side of my posts for you OR you can email me and I will post your recipes on my blog. Now, I wanted to give advance notice to those bloggers who don't have anything planned to say today. I am going to make mine this morning and post the pic and recipe this afternoon. So in other words check back. If you leave a comment that you would like in on this I will post Mister Linky if I have enough people. But until I get back here this PM here are some pics I hope you'll enjoy!!!!

Thanks for the pictures, I have a long way too go. I only started converting my home to prim less then a year ago. I know this is going to sound funny but I don't allow myself to decorate my home until a have lived in it for 6 months to a year. I believe a home will tell you what it wants to be and you have to give it time to talk to you. ( not literally talk, don't worry I'm not nuts )

WOW!!! I love your home and it is so comfy & cozy looking:) All your prim things look so good...I'm off to the Country Store:)
What do you have on your doors of your china cabinet or cupboare, I know one is homespun but can't figure out how you have the other hanging or put there?

Your home looks like it could be featured in that country living magazine. I love all you little decorations. I really love the shelf with the star and basket, I need to take a picture of my shelf sometime, it's not decorated as cute as yours though.

Leslie said...

Oh! Oh! Oh! I love so much of it! Great work decorating and collecting all of those wonderful items!

My Simple Life said...

Your home is sooo beautiful and the colors are awesome.

Mrs. Trixi said...

I love your home and all of your primitive decor. It is great!!! I would have loved and old farm house.

Leslie said...

Hey, it was YOU!!! You're the one that I saw the cheese box and thought that I needed to find another one to make my stack higher. I just thought it was two. I didn't look closely enough to see you have an extra tall one. That's neat! Never saw one like that before.

I haven't decided what to do with my new one yet. I don't want to paint over the stained one at all. I have had that for 9 years now and I love it as it is (do you know what's in it? Some of DH's Playboy's...how nice, huh? LOL) I just don't know if I want to stain the other one, too. Maybe a different color? I want them to stand out against one another somehow.

Thanks for all of your tips and advice and for sharing your inspiration pics!. You have helped me a lot!
