Okay, I don't have any pictures to post, so I'll just gab on (as usual).

Ren: your livingroom is lovely. I'm particularly intrigued by your window. Are those "insets" there for security reasons or aesthetic ones? They're quite pretty. I must say that although I dream of having an off-white couch in my house, it's never going to happen (we're the messy sort lol).

Christina: Love your builtins and the display case in the middle makes for a perfect balance. Oh, and my husband wants your TV!

Satguru: Okay, your kitchen is way too tidy. Do you have have more things in those cupboards than what is visible in the picture? lol

ClaraSue: I'm afraid if I had a bathroom like that one, I might never leave the house! And a winerack is ever so much more convenient than some old musty cellar. You're so sensible : )

SpanishLiz: Sometimes I think your cat should have been named "Precocious", not "Precious". Too funny with the button pushing!

Ertrum: What a good dad you are - hanging the artwork properly rather than pasting it to the fridge : )

Martin/Jane: Very festive trees.

Thanks, they are decorative/protective metal sliding doors. I can lock them and slide the glass outside ones back in summer to let the breeze through. They also have mesh to stop mosquitoes, so they are useful.

Sheesh, you all tidied up, dusted and put the vacuum cleaner round before taking your photos!

ertrum, what a lovely drawing your daughter did! Do you have other pieces of artwork she did? I've always wished I had a drawing or painting talent. Is that a watercolor?

But Sue, by not giving dusting priority you reveal your true devotion to your Art!Creativity should always come first.

ClaraSue, yes, it's a watercolor.
Jakeroo and Clara, thanks. She won a prize here in NC for another watercolor she did (which, sadly, I don't have on my wall)

Speaking of which, have you noticed how much better things look when they're framed properly (or typed up and put neatly into the binder if it's a paper)?

Jakeroo - thanks - sorry about the TV though, I think my husband would have a fit if I gave it away.

SM - Wow, love the crossstitch.
