Our Cottage - Entryway





















I like to draw things out on paper so I can get a feel for what I want...here's my initial drawing



















Finished product, shows the heirloom cabinet my aunt made for my mother, and the last calligraphy art piece I did before my hands got too misshapen and sore from the arthritis.






















Close up of my last art piece...some of you might recognize the scripture. It played an important part in the restoration of the LDS church in the 1800's, and holds a special place in my own life.


A family tradition started by my mom was putting together puzzles at Christmas time.  This is a painting I really wanted, but couldn't afford, so I found it in puzzle form and now it hangs in the Entryway.  If you look close at the puzzle, you might catch a glimpse of some of the things that are important to me.


























A fun little window I had added to both sides of the entryway. 


















Next is the Fireplace/TV/Shelves...I have had a lot of fun decorating this area!

  1. Wow, your Aunt made that piece of furniture? She did great work.

    How nice and bright your house is. I have one room that is o dark. I don't like it but my Hubs does. I think he would like living in a cave.

  4. So many things to complement you on today...the cabinet your Aunt made for your mother is a beautiful heirloom...I love your calligraphy, a beautiful scripture. I'm sure this piece holds many special meanings, especially since it was one of your last. And of course the Blue & White pottery. What design is one the plate in the little window?

  6. Beautiful and very "welcoming". I can't wait until one day when I can see all of this in person. You did a wonderful job decorating your home. I like it when people decorate with meaning full pieces.
