Thanks so much, Sarah! The woody pillow is still available at Pottery Barn.

Thank you, Docia.The striped pillow is from Home Goods, last year.The Lab pillow is almost as old as Molly. She's 12 and we have had the pillow almost as long as she's been with us. I can't remember where we found it.

I've had the ruana for awhile Susan. I found it at Ross. It's Calvin Klein. I try to check Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx outerwear racks when I'm in the stores, this time of year. I saw some cute pullover style knit ponchos at Marshalls the other day.

We are hoping to have a small tree. No decorations, but poinsettias around the bottom. That's the plan. The contract to sell is up in January. We won't put it back up for sale until Spring.Our Realtor hasn't said anything about Christmas.I'll email and see what she says before we put a tree up.

Thank you Karen! Our home hasn't sold yet. We are thinking of take it off the market for Winter and starting over in Spring.

Thank you, Cheryl Ann... The mats are from Nell Hill's. I bought them a few years ago when Nell Hill's still had an online store. You might be able to find similar ones at PB.

Thanks Ellen! Our Realtor is tops. Very good ranking. Our kids' home sold practically overnight. It is in the county south of us...smaller home. It is still slow for some homes up here in the country, plus different county.

Thanks so much Betty...no offense taken.:-) We've tried it spare.:-) At this point in time we decided if it sells it sells, but if it doesn't that's okay too. We will be leaving here in about an hour. I have my doubts about anyone even coming by. Maybe one or two potential buyers. If we are lucky.

Thanks so much Lou Ann. I really appreciate the advice, but it is the 11th hour.:-) When you see the virtual tour on the realtor site, you will see empty table tops and less fussy looks through the house. That spare look is what was here two years ago when we listed and this year as well. At the end of three months, we returned furniture and I did some tables. Our room had nothing on the walls, very plain for the listing. We decided to put three pictures on the wall and bring a table in for beside the chair a couple of weeks ago. We've tried it every which way, it just is a very soft market for homes the size of ours. Generally it takes over a year to sell a home of this size, here.

Hi Dana Our agent has made no suggestions about color or staging. We painted the dining room and living room a year before we decided to sell the house two years ago. I've always been drawn to warmer colors for some reason. The dining room was blue for a relatively short time,compared to the other two colors it's been painted...both of those warm. The beige and antique white paint colors through the house are our choices.

Thanks so much Nana Diana! The iris canvas is another of my Home Goods finds. I always go through the canvases when I am in the store.

Thank you Susan. The prints were purchased at JC Penney in 2003. They are actually companion prints with a larger print of a vineyard purchased at JCP at the same time. I'm trying to find a spot for that one in the room as well.

Barbara, thanks so much for letting me know. That is good news! Several years ago, there was an effort to change the name of the road. The family got together and sent letters etc. to keep the name of the road. Across the highway, the name is now Freymuth Lane. That is the small stretch of road that winds around from Lake Saint Louis Blvd. and runs along the highway. Freymuth Rd. ran between the two original farms. The road on the Wentzville side runs in front of the farm that belonged to a cousin.That farm is designated a Missouri Century Farm and was bequeathed to St Charles County for a park. Lots of history on Freymuth Rd.

Thanks Susan. The wire cloche is one of a pair from Nell Hill's several years ago. I can't remember, for sure, where I found the tiered piece. It was more than likely Home Goods.:-)

Michelle that is definitely a little slice of Heaven, nestled deep in the hills and hollows of the gorgeous Missouri Ozarks, on the Lake of the Ozarks. I think we need to schedule a drive, soon!

Thank you, Mary. I find very nice silks at locally owned shops. All About Home, Troy MO, The White Hare, O'Fallon MO, and The Flower Petaler, St Charles MO. I've actually found some nice pods at Michael's, this Fall.

When I was in high school, I had private drawing lessons with an artist who lived in a log cabin. Great memories! Every Saturday morning I would walk to her cabin, for my lesson. Mary always had fresh baked cookies, still warm from the oven. While I munched cookies and sipped hot tea, I had my lesson, with one of the artist's cats curled up in my lap.

Thanks Pinky! Those trees are from either Nell Hill's(Atchison KS)or Schaefer House (Jefferson City MO)several years ago. I can't remember for sure, but definitely at one of those shops.
