Home shots

I finally took some pictures around easter time of one of the floors of our house, here is the living room. This is one of the four fireplaces. I love all the windows! We haven't put up any wall hangings, I don't want to mess up this house at all! (it was built right around 1900) but I'll probably get over it soon. There are two staircases, this is what we call the grand staircase. It only goes from the main level to the second, not to the basement or the upper floor. Notice the Harry Potter room under the stairs, the first week we were here, my boys had to play in there with their flashlights.On the left side of this next pic is the front entryway.On the left side of the next picture is the room with the stairs, I'm told the foyee, or however you say it, and to the right is part of the dining room, with a built in hutch. This is the first time I wish I had fine china to display. I don't really have much to put in it to display. I forgot to take a pic of the kitchen, though it's nothing grand, but you can see the counter on the left, and to the right is the second set of stairs. From the main level this looks down to one of the two back doors and to the basement.
Here is a picture of the dining room from the living room. The hutch is on the wall opposite of the fireplace.
We love this place!! We are trying to see how we can finagle(is that a word?) staying here longer than we originally intended. The fact that this house is in a state park is just icing on the cake. The only thing I can really complain about is that it's pretty hard to keep cleaned...especially with three little boys who aren't quite ready to help with sweeping. I need to invest in one of those big brooms. ( : I'll try to take pictures of the second level with all of our rooms sometime this week.

Yay! I finally had a chance to look at the pics you posted. It’s very pretty. I like how bright and light it is and the built in hutch is fabulous. I guess it’s time to scour the thrift shops for something to put in there!
