Corners of my home



It's been awhile since I've done a "Corners of my home". I love to find small spaces in my home that I really like. Of course if I looked at my house as a whole, I would find things that I want to change, or do not like. But I find that looking for those "corners" of my home that I like allows me to see and be thankful for the details.

This corner is in my living room. I love the baskets and rocking chair that we have. This is where blocks are built and books are read. The sunlight always shines so pretty in this corner, and I love looking at it.

Do you have some corners you want to share? Let me know!

This looks like such a lovely place to just sit and play. The sun does look so beautiful in the photo. I did a post on my favorite corners of my home a while ago, here it is: http://renaissancemama.blogspot.com/2007/11/corners-of-my-home.html

Very pretty, Andrea. I always pictures from your home - it seems like we may have very similar tastes. :) Natural and cozy with aged beauties and just a touch of modern here and there. Yum!

Ooh, your house looks so wonderful!! Can we PLLLEEEAAASSSSSEEEE see more? :)
I love seeing little glimses into people's homes. I think it says so much about who we are!

This picture is lovely and inspiring. We have 2 sets of those blocks! I also love the picture you posted a while back with the plant on the table in the morning sun. I love a corner near our dining (and school?) table that has our antique pine craft cabinet. On top, there are usually flowers or fruit and I keep our morning readings there (bible, hymn book, poetry) and also display our story time books. On the wall behind it is an unframed canvas of pears in a bowl. This corner is special to me and I've taken pictures of it for our albums. Mary Brooke enjoying the lovely, rare Atlanta snow!!!!!!!

That was to say, "I always *love* pictures from your home...." Oops! :)

Andrea said...

Miriam-
LOL. I know what you meant. :)

Laurel- Actually, there is only *one* room in my house that is something I really love. The rest is "corners" and spots that I like. :) But I'll show some more. There is so much I would like to do to my house but time, energy and money prohibit. That's why I like the idea of the "corners"--little spots that inspire or that I feel happy about, even if the whole house is not how I would like. Trust me I have plenty of "corners" that bug me!!

That's beautiful! Maybe it's time I posted another one of these myself...although I'd need to do some tidying first ;)
I love the light in this picture; what a lovely home you have!

I LOVE it when you do these! I'll have to hunt around for my favorite corners - I'll let you know when I do!

Lovely! I do like how the sunlight shines into the corner. I posted my current favorite space in our home a while back as well: http://terrysoapbox.blogspot.com/2007/10/making-room-stand-out-with-color.html Stop by and take a peek if you like.

I've just recently thought about doing this on my blog. You've inspired me to go ahead and do it!

Miriam said...

Just wanted to let you know I just posted a picture of a corner of my home... well, a big corner. A room. :)

Love the blocks. Building, building in the sun.

So pretty- I love the light!

It's hard to think of a corner of my home right now that I love- I think it's probably my dusty rose (Kev says it's pink!) chair- I curl up in it early in the morning and read the Word. And I also sit in it to read to the children- they climb all over me! :)

How cozy! I'd love to curl up in that corner!
