I shared the kitchen in its new gray paint a couple weeks ago, so I thought I would show the music room since it also got the same color paint.

When I share my house, I always try and make things look as good as possible. I will spend a lot of time just setting up a shot and making sure everything is perfect because I don't think anyone reads this blog to see laundry baskets sitting around or my dirty dishes on the counters.

I really don't do any decorating for Valentine's Day, so I had a hard time coming up with something to do to celebrate the holiday. Then I started to think back to my childhood and to those construction paper pouches we made and decorated at school, which were always filled with valentines from classmates. I think that sweet, child-like spirit is what really epitomizes Valentine's Day for me, so I decided I would do something for my three children. Instead of a paper pouch filled with cards, I made heart-shaped french toast, and I'm sure they will appreciate that a lot more! And since this was a trial run, hubby got to eat this batch:-)

If you have been here with me for very long, you will remember me frequently mentioning my dad's relative who passed down many of our family heirlooms. So much of my furniture, art, china, etc., came from our "Cousin Ruth," and each piece is treasured.

Finally, all the Christmas decor is down and I have enjoyed a blank slate to play with. As much as I love Christmas decor and hate to take it down, I always look forward to something a little less cluttered for winter.

The music "room" in our home also serves as the front entry. It used to be the dining area, but because it got high traffic, I ended up putting the piano there and moving the dining area to the living area, which was long enough to accommodate it. It has worked much better this way, and I enjoy having the piano in a more open spot.

Thanks so much for the comments you all have left:-) They really make my day and confirm that we can make do with what we have, and still have something pretty, which is what this blog is all about.
Today, I'm sharing the living area and my quirky tree...

I don't know what it is this year, but it sure seems Christmas is creeping up -- at warp speed, so I need to share my Christmas posts before it's too late!
Our kitchen definitely has a different look this Christmas thanks to the fabric I used for curtains and the sink skirt. It's merry, bright, kid friendly and we are loving it:-)

I know most of us are in the midst of Christmas decorating, but I had the opportunity to curate a board over at Hometalk with DIY budget countertop ideas, so I wanted to share it with you all here.
There are some really great options for DIY countertops, including my own wormy chestnut countertops, so click HERE to see the board.

I am excited to be participating in my first ever blog hop hosted by Pamela over at From My Front Porch to Yours. I'm even more excited because this is a mantel party and I finally get to come out and play:-)
