Jeanette's House

Last week our rug group met at Jeanette's new home for our monthly get together. Standing on the sidewalk I admired front porch and those gorgeous hanging baskets of fibrous begonias. Wanted to sit down on a rocking chair and never leave!


There is a play house in the back yard for the grandkids - 

And a wonderful vegetable garden -

A putting green -

And a river - (if you look closely you can see some ducks)

This neatly stacked firewood makes me long for a roaring winter fire -

And in the house her laundry room has a bird theme going on - love the two hooked rugs - 

Her sewing room/wool room is awesome - she had cubbies built-in on either side of the window - 

I love how she has the wool neatly stacked by color - and little decorations and trinkets displayed amongst the wool -

Smaller bits of wool are in this little box on a table -

Thanks so much for a great day and the delicious lunch Jeanette!

I'm with Cheryl... I want to live there! Great house, a yard to die for, and the sewing room should have a sign on the door that says "heaven!"

What a perfect house, even a babbling brook and a playhouse for the grandchildren. You can tell a lot of thought and love went into it. How lovely!
Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Picture perfect home. I can't believe having a decorated laundry room! My house can be such a wreck at times. The laundry and pantry is all one room and it is the catch all for everything.
Lovely home to have your meeting in!!
