Living Room Design - French Country

Today, I would like to introduce you to my blog and give you a short tour of my home.   We purchased our house four years ago and have spent a lot of time updating and making our home a better place for our family to live. I always decorate on a budget and a lot of my home decor are things that were given to me by family members or items I have found on sale.   The things I treasure the most are the special things that were given to me by loved ones.  They are things I could never part with.  I love things that have meaning and tell a story. Therefore, I always find a way to incorporate them into my decor.  As you can tell, I'm a very sentimental person.  I think that is why I love French Country decor.  It has that "aged over time" feel. My husband and I do a lot of the work ourselves.  It’s a hobby and passion we both share.  We have spent many a weekend or vacation improving our home. I’m notorious for coming up with an idea or plan, and my dear sweet husband is always there to make my vision into a reality.

I want to thank you  for sharing this exciting new journey with me.  I also want to thank my husband for inspiring and encouraging me to pursue my dreams.  I look forward to sharing my future projects with you.  I'll be featuring home remodel projects, home decor ideas, recipes, crafts, and tablescapes.  So without further  ado, let the tour begin!!!

    I so enjoyed your home tour! I want to redo my living room in beige and blue so I especially enjoyed seeing that room. Visiting blogs like this one provide me with inspiration and beauty. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Darlene for your sweet comments. This is my first blog, and I am so excited. I hope that you stop back by because I have more rooms to share. We have been working on our upstairs bonus room these past weeks, and I can’t wait to share the progress.

  5. Thanx 4 the tour! Pleasant and comfortable looking house. So uncluttered! Something for me to emulate…LOL
    The blue is so nice…my favorite color……
    Happy blogging!

    • Thanks MJ for the sweet comments. However, with three kids my house is not always uncluttered. You should see the behind the scenes….LOL I hope that you stop back by because I have more rooms to share. I’m so excited to be starting a blog!!!

  6. Your home is beautiful! I love all of your French country touches and the use of color. Beautiful!!

  7. Congratulations and welcome to the world of blogging!…Your home is very beautiful and I can envision you presenting many wonderful posts in the future and looking forward to them!

  8. Shannon, once again welcome to the blogging world! I loved your beautiful home tour…your blue/white touches are classic! Blessings, Pam @ Everyday Living

  9. I really like the rug in your living room. Will you share where you purchased it?

    • Hi Debby! The rug is probably about 4 years old and was purchased from QVC. It was part of the Linda Dano collection. She used to have really pretty home decor items on QVC, but I haven’t seen her on there lately. I’m sorry I am not much help. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a wonderful week!
