ThAt waS theN... THiS iS nOw

First of all make sure you check in on me more often.  I finally decided to get a ipad so I could blog more.  I felt that I didn't blog much because of all the steps needed to get things done on the desktop computer.  But now I can take the pictures and blog all at once so watch out you will be hearing from me a lot more.  

This was the original family room we built in 2003.   Then in 2012 we added the logs to make it feel like a old log cabin.  The tv was in the big green cabinet. 
Of course we never leave anything alone for long we added a fireplace with a big tv above.   And what a difference this has made in the room.  This is where the green tv cabinet was in the above picture.   This room always felt cold with all the windows - not any longer !  It is a cozy warm place to enjoy a movie.    The little drawers are faux and the entire row lifts up exposing the cable box, surround sound, and Xbox.  The doors open to expose a 65" TV.   But the greatest deal of all is that we found this 42" gas fireplace at our local habitat for humanity restore for only $225.  

Here are a few photos of some little groupings I have thru out the house 


  1. Very nice, love the fireplace/tv cabinet!!!

  2. Great job on the fireplace/TV unit - we never have stuff like that at our ReStore - sigh! I never tire of seeing pictures of your house Michelle. I've never tried blogging from my iPad - can you tell me what App you use now?

    1. Thank you ! I had some problems getting my pictures loaded. But found them thru picassa. But I use blogspot thru the internet for the blogging.
