Thanks Sandy. I bought the hat at Coldwater Creek about 10 years ago. The stores are closed. Coldwater Creek is available online now. I looked for the hat but they didn't have it. I googled straw hat and found this one, very similar to mine. http://www.zappos.com/san-diego-hat-company-rhl10-natural

Thank you Lenda. It came through great!

Thanks Karen. The walk in closet here at the new house isn't as big as the one at the old house, so I am having to do some editing. Plus I use another closet for Winter things.

When we first saw this house there was snow on the ground. The day was cloudy bright. The first thing I noticed was the light. I knew I was going to have a great time with the camera.:-)

Thanks Liz! We had 40 degree temps here this morning. Those temps and sunny days good growing vegetation.:-)

Thanks so much Dobie! We put in all the light fixtures in the dining area, living room, and over the island. They are all from Lowe's. We also put in new fixtures in the tv room, which is a total mess right now. Also the guest room. Another catchall for the time being.:-)

Kay the fan is dark, with a brushed nickel light fixture, sort of understated.

Sorry about the flooring. Since we didn't build the house, the flooring was already in, chosen by the builder. I don't know anything about it. We were given a list of items for the house, but it did not include the flooring. It is vinyl sheet goods. That's all I know. The same flooring is in the guest bath and in the foyer, kitchen and dining area. We are replacing the foyer, kitchen and dining area flooring next week. The bathroom flooring will remain for the time being. I can tell you, this vinyl pattern is rough textured. Took some getting used to, walking barefoot. I am sure I would not have chosen it. Our former home had a textured ceramic in kitchen area. It was easier on the feet.

Hi Mary, I am so sorry! Have you tried Bloglovin? You can click the space on my sidebar and try that. It might work better than Feedburner.

Thank you Sherri. The door is Musket Brown, I believe this may be a Sherwin Williams color. The siding is Tuscan Clay.

Thanks Pinky...the guys will need to come back anyway, because after the carpet is out and the wood floors are in there will be a space where the trim is dropped down. That would need painting. We decided to just let them wait until after the floors are in. These are the painters who have done our painting for many years. They are extremely tidy.:-)

Thank you Martina! Those are plantation shutters on the slider. When you want to open them you need to close the louvers. I didn't know what I was going to do with the slider and was surprised I could get these. I thought they would open like a bi-fold door, but they slide. We really like them. The basement has a window and a slider, but we'll use something else down there since we won't be finishing the basement.

Thanks Pinky...those are four hanger hooks. We had them beside the patio at our old house. We dug them out of storage the other day and put them beside the little stoop/pad by the basement slider. We have a two hanger hook by the wooded area, with hummingbird feeders on them. That hook is also from the old house. It is like Christmas when we go to storage, discovering forgotten treasures.:-)

Thank you Peggy. The flooring is Mohawk Acacia Barrel engineered hardwood.

Thank you Kay. The carpet is being replace by a wood floor in a couple of weeks. The flooring sample is shown in the photo with the chair before the new upholstery. We just have the rug "relaxing" rather than leave it rolled for an extended period of time.

Hi Judi..thanks so much. The table is American Drew. I bought two of the tiered tables and the leather topped coffee table, also American Drew, at a local furniture store.

Thank you, Sue. We looked at a senior community. Found a home we liked, but in the end it sold before our home sold. I think it was meant to be, because we found this plan and decided if we could have this plan without building we would go for it. As luck would have it, the week we sold our former home, we found our new home. It needs a few changes but nothing big. It's new construction, without having to build. That was a big selling point for us. There are several seniors living in this community and lots of amenities.

Hi Mary The rocks are for "accessorizing" the wooded area at the back of our lot. J is working his garden magic.:-)

Karen...thank you...it is just angel hair pasta with ground sirloin...heavy on the sirloin, light on the tomatoes and a little cheese thrown in. It was very good.

Mary, the paint is Sherwin Williams Cashmere. It is the only paint finish our painter guy uses and we really like it. It's flat and yet has depth and it is washable.
My youngest granddaughter...Gabi, is redoing her room. She is not only taking the carpet, she is also taking furniture. Gabi is 10...I think I have had a huge influence on her...as far as "decorating", anyway.:-)I can only hope I have been a good influence on her in other ways.
I found the sunflower picture a few years ago at Home Goods.
Troy Carpet Center is doing the carpet and wood floors. All from Mohawk. They've done our flooring for over 30 years. Way back when the present owner was a floor layer. His son was here giving us a bid. Do you live in the Maple by McBride?
