Sister's House Tour

Happy Cyber Monday everyone?  I did my share of shopping online today, ordering everything from toys to clothes and nursery furniture.  Yep, my computer is almost out of gas and running on empty.  But I have just enough juice to squeeze in a post.


I want to share with you some pictures of my sister's beautiful home.  Each year we spend Thanksgiving here and my sister puts out such a gorgeous tablesetting, complete with gifts for all of her guests.  There is so much beautiful decor to take in so let's get started.


Her kitchen is huge!!!  


To the left of the above photo is the morning room.

To the right:


Her Dining Room, where all the Thanksgiving magic happens.
Love the ceiling!




Looking in from the Living Room:




This Living Room is just gorgeous.




Don't you just love the columns?  There's a lot of moulding detail in my sister's home.





Love this bombe in the corner.





My sister is a detail person like me.  Her accessories are amazing.




The view from the front door.




As you can see, it's quite a big house - about twice the size of mine.


Love this family room.


No space has been overlooked in this house.




Next I will do a post about the upstairs of my sister's lovely home.  Luckily for me, we are only 2 miles apart!  I get to see this home as often as I want.   


I will leave you with a scene familiar to many of you on Thanksgiving.........after dinner.




Notice anything????  That's RIGHT!  No women!  While the men in the family let those endorphins sink in while watching the game, the women are in the kitchen doing dishes.  Not to worry, these are all wonderful men who make it up to us during the rest of the year.  


Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday and I can't wait to see all of the Christmas decor that's soon to be popping up around blogland!


As for me, my decor is going to be scaled down quite a bit this year due to my situation, but I'm not at all disappointed.  I can still sit at my computer and take in all of your lovely homes.  Thanks for stopping by!
I'm going to give my computer a nap now.
xoxo,
Kim

I love your sister's house! Is that raffia on her Christmas tree? My mom used to decorate our tree with raffia when I was a kid and I never got why she wanted to decorate our tree with "straw." I can appreciate it more now that I'm an adult. :)

I ordered nursery furniture two weeks ago - still waiting for it to arrive. Where did you order yours from? I hope you were able to snag a good deal! I got ours from JC Penney...they bombard me with coupon mailers and I was finally able to put one to good use!

Your sister's home is gorgeous, Kim. I'd love to have a kitchen that size. And everything looks so festive decked out for Christmas! Love her trees! How lucky you are as sisters to live so close!

I hit a few Cyber sales and I am really knocking things off my list. It's nice not having to go out into the cold!! ;-D

XO,

Hey Kim,
Your Sis has a beautiful home! I enjoyed seeing it. Boy, you aren't kidding it's big! I hope she has a maid! lol! The after dinner pic is funny; the guy on the floor looks like he's about ready to bust! I'm glad you all had a great time. Thanks for the tour!

Her home is just beautiful and I love the size of that kitchen! Our kitchen in our last house was the best kitchen and I miss it so much! Looks like the men were well fed and enjoying themselves! I love it!

What situation? Did I miss something? Are you all right?

Beautiful home. I had to smile with all the guys kicked back and relaxing.

Your sister home is beautiful & nice to have already decorated for Christmas in time for Thanksgiving. You may not be doing much in the way of holiday decorating, but what you have done is so very lovely. I'm so happy for you and your family for the precious little gift you are soon to receive.
