You can see my new curtains in these pictures. But I am a little bummed because I am not finished with them yet. I have curtain draperie hooks to drape them to the sides to frame the fireplace but I (as in my hubby!) haven't been able to put the hardware in yet. Our family has been hit with the flu this week : ( So it has changed most of our plans this week. In these pictures you can see my sweet little angel sleeping on the the couch. She is 2 1/2 and this is the first time she has ever thrown up...the poor thing just doesn't understand what is going on! So I took advantage of her sleeping and got some pictures taken. I was hurrying and didn't notice that the lighting is not so great in some of the pictures. But I have loved looking at others and still wanted to share mine!

I could not live without my bookshelves!! My father in law made them, aren't they amazing!! I wish I had that kind of talent. Besides being fun to decorate, they are great for storing all my picture albums and scrapbooks. And I have two bottom shelves that have kid toys in them that are easy to pull out and play with.
View looking towards my front entry and dining room area. The red ottoman is great. It opens and stores our blankets and pillows.
I wish I would have gotten a close up of our family picture because it is my favorite. My girls have grown a lot since it was taken but I can't get myself to replace it!
I love having functional furniture. You can never have enough storage space. In this cabinet I have all 3 drawers full of the kid apporpriate DVDs.
Here is where we keep all our electronical devices.
I use these cord covers to hide the zillion cords I have coming out from my television.
This is in our entry. And I keep all the grown up Dvd's in here.
We never used our fireplace because we were afraid that one of the girls would get burned by touching it. Then I found this to go in front of it and it works perfectly!
