This is Where I Live....


in the Memorial Area of Houston, Texas

Photo
view from inside the double front doors, across the corridor into the
living room.
these pics were taken by me, and are far from wonderful.

looking to the right side of living room

antique piano bought for my daughter when she was about 11,
I love the sun shining through the branches.


view into back garden area (where a whole lot of work needs to be done).


 
view into one corner of walk-in wet bar, showing the ONLY Christmas
decorating I had done, the candies & the red napkins...:)'s

the bar is just inside the front door to the right, so directly across the
corridor from the living room and next to the formal dining room
(where major work is now being done on the lighting)

the home has the best floor plan for a 1-story house I've ever seen, you don't have
to walk through any room to get into another room, it's glass all across the back and you
have a beautiful view to the property which is about 1+ acre.

it's so funny how one day you look at something and it seems in need of a facelift,
a new look...when before you thought it was wonderful.
the face lift stage is where I am now.

more images to come.

Merry Christmas, my friends

  1. On the contrary, I think the photos of the antique piano are splended.

  4. Marsha, from what I can see you have a beautifully appointed home. I know what you mean about a facelift, I am at that stage too. I feel as if my home needs a little freshening up. After the first of the year I might dive in and tackle a few things. But, for right now I am enjoying the Holidays!!
    Merry Christmas,

  5. Your house is just as Splendorosa as you are!! I love the decor, and can't wait to see it all decked up for the holidays. The piano is gorgeous! In 2011 we face lifted our home and this year 2012 we did some more and decorated some more..a home is never finishes, I always tell myself. Come by my house! Big hugs,
    FABBY

  9. Marsha, I absolutely love the open concept. It makes a home flow so beautifully! My BFF has a 5000+ sq. ft., one story, all open, and the flow is so wonderful for entertaining. Love your home!

  10. Marsha your home is beautiful! You should be very proud of what you've created. Hey I thought it was so beautiful I pinned it. The downstairs of our home will be under going a major facelift in January and I can't wait!

    Happy Holidays!

  12. Hello Marsha

    Like your readers have said, to me it looks perfect, welcoming and beautifully appointed. The light is spectacular as it dances on the antique piano.

    Don't make too many changes!!!
