MY MONTANA HOME..........






I have mentioned before how very grateful I am to be able to live in such a beautiful spot.  We will soon be leaving our wonderful little home here and begin our annual journey down south.  But before we go...thought I would show you just a few little shots around the homestead.



I'm always tweaking that mantle trying to get it just right.
This year was the first time I discovered a plug behind the picture....lots of folks put their TV's up there but ours is in a big hutch in the great room.


A lot of the art was in the home when we purchased it so I have made it work.....As you know....I always believe in recycling everything in a new way.  Lots of the little things here are from other spots that we have been in over the years.


And....as I have said before......if you don't like color......don't stop in at my spot.



Last but not least..........


Hope  all of you have had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend......I know we have.

Hugs sweet friends,

Jo

    Your home is lovely and inviting! I love your mantle. I do have a tv above mine, it is nice to watch a movie and the fire at the same time.

  4. It looks like a very comfortable place. I too love the big sunflowers bowl. We also have one of those old radios. Thank you for sharing some of your wonderful pieces in your home. Now I want to just go rest on those chairs over looking the water. Have a wonderful week.

  9. It is a beautiful summer home. But winters are not all that fun in Montana. I just can't handle them anymore. I'm really looking forward to going south again starting slowly that way next month.
