My Cozy Home: Daisy Mae Belle

{I already featured Daisy Mae Belle's lovely and whimsical home. But when I lost my posts, it went with them. So, because I think it is such a great feature, I have asked her for the post and am showing it again. I will be back later today with Tweak It.}

                                               Have you ever visited the
With that precious name,
I know you want to visit now!

Brenda has started a fun new series called,
My Cozy Home
where different bloggers will be sharing their homes.

And, I am lucky enough to kick off this new series. :)
So, that's where I am going to be today.
Sharing a little more about my home :)
I hope you'll stop over and say "Hi!"

I share my home and projects over at DaisyMaeBelle.
I'm so thrilled to be the first in Brenda's new series:
My Cozy House.
What a perfect name!
Thank you Brenda for allowing me to share my home here!
So, come on in...
Summer Front Porch @ DaisyMaeBelle
I wish you were here for real.
We'd sit here on my front porch and get to know one another better.
I'd have the sweet tea ready!
My Foyer @ DaisyMaeBelle
After we shared a few laughs about our families,
I'd take you inside and show you around.
I'd tell you about my 3 girls;
Daisy, Anna Bella and Lila Mae.
My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd show you my dining room table.
It was the very table that my husband grew up eating all of his meals at.
I'd tell you it was the first thing that I ever painted with chalk paint...
and that I've learned a few things since then,
so I think I should paint it again.
My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd tell you about my dining room hutch that I found
at a yard sale 13 years ago.
And, that I have painted it twice already,
but I'm thinking it would look beautiful in a pale green...
dining room summer 201307
I'd show you my little brass containers that I filled with moss.
And, I'd have to tell you that the reason I have so much moss in my house
is because I am a lost cause with house plants.
I just can't seem to get the watering down.
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd show you my family room.
And, tell you about the new rug that I just bought after looking for 2 years,
and my husband finally asking if I could please buy a rug?!
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd have to explain to you how I can't resist a cute flying pig.
I have 6.
Yes, I counted just for you!
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd tell you about my dried hydrangeas that I have all over the house.
You see, I have this hydrangea bush that blooms
thousands of blooms every year,
even though I do nothing to it.
And, so I end up with hydrangeas for all of my friends,
Anyone who wants hydrangea blooms!
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd show you the table that I just painted.
And, explain how much prettier it is going to look
when I have this love seats recovered.
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd tell you about the happy dance I did
right in the carport of some complete strangers
when I realized that this giant metal piece
was actually a part of their yard sale...
It came off of an old building in Kentucky!
Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
We'd probably need to stop and sit a spell here in my den.
And, I'd tell you about how these chairs are next for reupholstery...
right after that love seat.
Bathroom Makeover18
I'd show you the silver platter wall I just hung here
in our downstairs bathroom.
{Finally a way to enjoy all of those silver platters
I got for wedding gifts 18 years ago!}
My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd tell you about these ironstone platters that I picked up at Goodwill.
My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle
And, the chalkboard that I painted right on the wall,
and just hung the frame on top of.
My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd tell you about how I looked high and low for bricks for my backsplash.
Apparently, the dear brick sellers here in Murfreesboro
don't realize that people are actually having the bricks cut
and used for interior purposes.
But, a quick drive to Nashville turned up exactly what I was looking for.
Old Marble Table @ DaisyMaeBelle
I'd take you upstairs,
Teens Girl's Room @ DaisyMaeBelle
and, show you Daisy's room
And, explain how the other 3 bedrooms upstairs are all still works in progress.
Backyard Fire Pit @ DaisyMaeBelle
And, the next time you came over,
I would insist you used the backdoor!
Because "backdoor" friends are the best!

Life to the full!
