Bloggy Tour

I'm part of BooMama's Bloggy Tour of Homes. I did something about a year ago where I took some pictures of the house but for this I used new photos off my messy house. It's just too hard to keep kids alive AND keep the house clean.

The front door. We don't hardly ever use it because everyone comes in through the garage. It is a good place to hide and talk on the phone though!


house 004
Where I make my bloggy magic! This is probably my favorite place in the house.

house 005
The living room. That's Stinky dog in the corner. She wanted to get in on the photo shoot.

Those cans and bottle on the counter? Not trash! That's art! It took me DAYS to get those things arranged just right.


house 008
This is my favorite thing outside. Our new fence that Sweety built and the flower garden that he planted. I think it looks great!

And here are some pictures I took awhile back when my house was clean!

LOL yes, keeping the child alive is a task unto itself these days! Your house looks super clean to me!!

BO Snagley said...

so you honestly think that is a messy house?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Nice house. Dogs always have to be in the picture, except for Yukon who doesn't like the flash.

Jennifer said...

That's not too messy at all. It just looks slighty lived in. I like your flower garden, too.

PEA said...

Your house is CLEAN even when you think it's dirty! (lol)....OY! You must think mine is a mess! HA HA HA!
Love all these pictures. So glad you shared your BEAUTIFUL home, my dear.

Chickie said...

Thanks for coming by!

And as far as the house being dirty, I was able to keep too much of the dog hair and dust from showing up in the photos!

Beckie said...

Sooo glad the kids are alive!! ;)
And... What a cute house!! The pop cans sure MAKE the kitchen!

Thanks for the invite.
Blessings! :o)

That kind of kitchen art takes years to perfect - keep up the good work! ;-)

Beautiful wood floors. (I would love to have wood floors) Nice fence.

You have to hide and talk on the phone too, huh?

Thanks for the tour.

I really like your oval coffee table :) And for not cleaning, it looks pretty darn tidy! Thanks for sharing your home.

Kim in MI said...

fun tour - I took the full flickr clean-home tour. Love the big open LR, porch, and dog models. And kitchen counter "art" too funny.

Thanks for letting be slip in late for the tour!

~Jennifer said...

You have a lovely home! I wish I had a porch like that!

Mountain Mama said...

I love it. Your flower garden and fence are beautiful and no weeds!
Your counter top art looks a bit like mine. LOL
Thanks for the fun tour.

smhgrace said...

Your home is lovely! I wish my counter tops were so clear! Thanks for sharing.

Barb said...

I really like that coffee table, too. And I love your kitchen floor. I can never figure out how anyone keeps a hardwood floor in the kitchen that nice. Yours is gorgeous. Love your little flower spot.

The Phosgene Kid said...

There ain’t a flat surface in out house that doesn’t have crap piled on it - you’ll have to let me in on your secret.

Dianne said...

Great house! I think we have the same sink-is yours Swanstone too? I just remodeled my kitchen this year, so I notice things in kitchen.
Thanks for the tour!

Blackbeltmama said...

I love your "art." Looks like we have similar artistic tastes. ;-)

Tammy said...

You have a nice home! It doesn't look messy to me! :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

You cleaned the house so well you lost your laptop – no new posts!! Check under the bed, that’s where I shove all my junk, so to speak.

Chappyswife said...

You have a very nice home. Thank you for the tour!

Mrs. C said...

Thanks for inviting us in! I love flower gardens!
