Still waiting

Well, I'm still waiting to get my foyer done.  My hubby said he will help get the high spots this afternoon.  Yay! So...........I don't have new foyer pics just yet.

  My son is still sick and now my oldest son is getting sick.  Help! I hope I'm not next!  My youngest son went to the doctor yesterday and was told he had a double ear infection and conjunctivitis.  He's now on prescription medicine for it.  I'm hoping he will start feeling better this week.  My oldest son went to school late with a sore throat.  I'm using lots of Lysol disenfectant wipes everywhere now! 

But, I don't want my blog to be all about germs and "woe is me" conversation.  So I thought I would show some pics of a home that I just love.  Pretty pictures are sure to improve the mood around here.  Ha!

These pictures are from Ekster Antiques.  I'm loving all the soft creamy white rooms in this house.





Look at that clock!  I have one too.  I may move mine out of the foyer and into another room though, because I have plans for something else in it's place.


Just take a look at the outside of this house!  It is the cutest thing I've ever seen.



But, it can get cuter!  Just look at the entrance.  The dogs, the topiaries, the stone, the lighting, and the blue painted ceiling!  This is the most charming entrance.  What I love about it is that it is simple but feels decorated at the same time.  It's also very symetrical (which I like).  Are you feeling the love?


Ok, I need to catch my breath now.  This house is such an inspiration to me!

I leave you now with just a little something funny.



I will be painting again this afternoon.  Hopefully, I will be back later in the week with my foyer makeover.

Hope your boys are on the mend soon! I hate that conjunctivitis gunk! I just took my oldest to the podiatrist and was told he should get surgery on 4 of his toes... ugh! So, of course, I'm googling the surgery to see if it's worth it. Glad you posted such lovely pictures so I could be distracted by something prettier than toes for awhile :) Good luck with the rest of the painting!

okay! I want that house and front porch!

Oh I love the front entry too. I love houses that look like that. The scuffed up painted floor boards and the cement dogs are just awesome! I want a Mora clock so bad I can scream. I saw a lot of them at Brimfield and they were $4000. But it is on my watch list, so when I see one at a good price there will be no hesitation. Sorry everyone is getting sick~I hate that.

I have one with a runny nose and one with a cough so I feel your pain! :-) I hope your kiddos start feeling better soon and that no one else gets it. I love all of those gorgeous inspiration photos and totally laughed out loud at the cartoon. I've been on 4 hay rides this Fall so I fully appreciate that! LOL!

Nice house and that card is too funny. I sure hope you are wiping everything constantly that Will's touching. I sure hope you don't get conjunctivitis. Nothing much worse.

Oh gosh, that front porch is just perfect. Love the topiaries and the blue ceiling. Hope you don't catch the crud!
