Inside My Home


Hello Dear Ladies,

Today I took some pictures of areas in the living room. In the photo above, you see a Pink Porcelain 
Doll pumpkin.   I am still looking for a Cinderella pumpkin.  If you have never seen the pink or blue porcelain doll pumpkins, try finding one in your grocery store. They are quite beautiful. 

This pumpkin has such vivid color, a deep red.

The mantel arrangement:  lanterns with led-lite candles, and a Cinderella coach.  I am still trying to figure out how to make a coach to ride in!

It is so nice to have you visit my blog, but it would be even more perfect if you could actually come to see me in person!

Everything quite dated here and nothing trendy or interesting. I have my ideas of what I would like this room to be like.

The model car matches my decor :-)
Note the new candle scent this year: snowed in, by Candle-Lite.

I felt the room was too dark so I changed a few things:

Your home is lovely Lydia and the decorations are so inviting. You would make a terrific home decorator.
I have not seen those pumpkins you speak of at all this year.
I grew some sugar baby pie pumpkins this year in my garden, but had them planted too close to the spaghetti squash and the bees cross pollinated them. We had the funniest stringy pumpkins as a result.

Your posts are so sweet, truly a breath of fresh air. I always feel more relaxed after reading you.

Your living room looks charming. Thank you for sharing - it's always fun to see the inside of other people's houses, isn't it?

Our stores don't have the pink pumpkins, but what a pretty pumpkin they are. We bought a Cinderella pumpkin and my granddaughter and I made it into a coach ,with the smaller pumpkins for wheels. Such a fun craft. Love your home, it is so elegant and homey and inviting.

Blessings to you!

I bought a baby pumpkin and drew a smiling face on it. It's sitting on my printer and makes me smile.
Yours are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely. Thank you.

Lydia said...

Yea, it's nice to see other people's homes and that's why we like to be invited, or we invite.

Visiting with you in person would be a dream come true. I enjoyed the cozy scenes from your home.

Dear Lydia, What a lovely and comfortable home you have! I sometimes like to look into homes as we are driving in the evenings to see if they are a family that is happy and loves the Lord. Home truly is a place where we can feel safe and appreciated by our dear sweet hubbies...
I am cleaning closets today and even after they are finished, I would not want to post it HA- HA as much as I try they always seem a bit jumbled.
I appreciate you and your post filled with inspiring and contentment no matter the season of the year or our lives!
Always, Roxy

You have an eye for coordinating, everything looks very inviting.I like seeing others homes for decorating tips. Many times I am stumped with how to make a corner or end table look nice or group objects together, and another person will have just what my home could use too. I tend to get a bit sparse at times, knick knacks don't really appeal to me, but then I see them in others homes and wish I had a better eye on how to coordinate them:-)

I relaunched my blog last week and am having an apron giveaway from joyful aprons. If you would like to share with your readers thank you so much:-) If not and this is overstepping my bounds of propriety then please do delete this part of my comment.

Have a lovely week,
