You have a beautiful home (and I'm sure always that clean:) and I love the idea of hanging snowflakes up in the entry! Might have to have a Texas sized snow storm this week.One question: On the photo wall, there seems to be this "other" object on the wall...like a knob stopper, but he's cute...what is it?
Hehe! Rachel, that's Philly Toeki! It's our talking clock. The kids chose her first name and Toeki means clock in Japanese. You press her nose and she announces the time, so we can say to our non-clock readers "go tell me what time it is!" and they'll run to press her nose and report the time. Ryan bought her for the kids when we were in New York, but you can get her online here.
Full of personality!
i adore the green tile on the mantle and the letters in the art room.... but i'm in such a Christmas mood that my favorite part is the christmas tree positively DRIPPING with lights. ours is just sprinkled this year:O)
Your home is absolutely beautiful! I love all the artwork and rugs made by your family members. Maybe someday I can have some of their work in our home too.
Love your gorgeous home!
Elise--I love your description! It's definitely heavy on the lights. In fact, we finished decorating the tree and I said, "Let's turn off the lights so we can enjoy the tree." We turned the lights off and Ryan said, "It's like we didn't even turn the lights off the tree is so bright." True.
Wow, your house is amazing - I love that it just speaks of your personality. You have so many unique features and it's just fun.
Katy, I am totally in love with your home. I adore every single room or item in each room you showed us! I love the fact also that there are so many stuff made or created by people around you (your family is so, so creative!)... and I am madly jealous of the arcade scales and rides! Thank you for letting us in ;-)
I love your home. My favorite part? That everything has meaning. Artwork by family members, pictures of family, etc. I love it.
Your home is beyond gorgeous!!! I love love love all the personal art you have and the beautiful things made by your mom and dad. Your dad was my seminary teacher in Albuquerque many years ago....I recently reconnected with him when NieNie did a post about his stars...he was my favorite seminary teacher:)
Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
