Pics of the House

Dear Friends and Readers,

     I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the last few days of summer. Things have been quiet here and I have been enjoying decompressing after sewing so much in preparation for our trip. However, I do plan on starting some new sewing projects very soon.

   Many of you may recall my parents’ visit back in June. They came with a U-Haul full of pieces that I had inherited from my late grandparents. I finally have everything to my liking and I have received tons of requests for pictures… So, here you go! Enjoy!


The Victrola. It has a ton of records from the early 20th century and it works like a dream.


My late grandmother’s first piano. The mirror is late Victorian and the over the top candle sticks are Rococo reproductions.


The Dining Set. It is not antique, but it is beautifully built mahogany and is modeled after early American styles.


The china hutch that matches the dining set. It is filled to the brim with china, crystal, tea pots, coffee pots, silver and the like.



The Victorian Room. Every piece in here is a family heirloom and antique.


I love the Victorian dresser. It has always been one of my favorite pieces.


The Blue Room. This room is my little heaven. It looks into the chicken run; I know most people wouldn’t like this, but I love my girls. 


We are still working on making the chandelier plate stay put, so please excuse the exposed hardware.


This hutch is not antique, but it makes for great storage.

Well, that’s all I have for now :) Have a lovely day!

Love Lauren

Your home is so beautiful! And how wonderful to have so many family heirlooms. It's truly a gorgeous place.

Oh my goodness, extremely beautiful! I wish I could have a house full of antiques... ;)
The Victorian bedroom looks eerily similar to the goal I have for my own room- the bed, the chairs, the dolls, the white shoe, paint colour, quilts, dresser... ;)
Anyway, you are a marvelous decorator!

Such wonderful old pieces! The dresser is exactly the sort I have wanted all my life! It is great that your family has valued these pieces and taken great care of them. From the lack of beautiful Vintage pieces around I can only assume that either there is an antique shop packed with such things that I have not yet discovered, or people just don't value such things anymore and throw them out when they get worn.
