Welcome to my home!
I told you in yesterdays post that there was a reason I was asking for comments about the size of my house…..
Why did I ask?
Well, some of the reasons……..
I thought it might be fun for you to guess….
It would be aÂ fun way to have a giveaway! (Britney guessed that correctly)
So, I plugged the comments into random.org……and………..
- OK. I say 3 beds, 2 1/2 baths and 2700 square feet. Is the fireplace question a trick? Do you have a chimney but no fireplace? Or are you one of the lucky ones with a fireplace downstairs and one in the master bedroom? I’ll go with that. 2 fireplaces. Molly, I will be sending you some “partylite” surprise goodies…..email me your address!
Not only did she win…but she is really, really close to being correct.
Our house is 2700 “heated” sq. ft.
4 BR, 3BA and 3 Fireplaces (there is a chimney on the backside too) PLUS a garage apartment (good memory Jackie). The garage apartment has a little kitchen, bedroom and bathroom…..all in 400 square feet.
So technically….5BR 4BA 3Fireplaces.
That’s a lot of stuff in 2700 square feet isn’t it?
My rooms are not huge.
The three fireplaces…..
Here are three past posts that show them……
Not counting the two outside….
That equals five fireplaces.
I think I have fireplace issues.
I will take you on a tour soon.
Let me know……..
It pays to comment around here. Just ask Molly!
Molly, I will pick out something really good!
Email your address……
But here is what else I really wanted to talk about.
My other reason that I wanted to get your comments about the “size” of my house……
I would like to leave you guys with a little thought……
One of my prettiest homes…
It was less than 900 square feet.
And although I love my house.
There are rooms that we really don’t use.
Sq footage…..fireplaces or how many bedrooms……
They do not make a house a “home”.
My 900 sq. foot house was just as “homey” as this house.
I have lived here for almost 15 years and yes, it is “home”…….
But if I lost it tomorrow.
If, God forbid….something happened to it.
I wouldn’t lose my “home”.
As corny as it sounds……”Home is where the heart is”.
When you look at my home, remember……it is just a house.
I hope my “home” can bring you inspiration and also a reminder that we all are blessed to be able to make our “houses” into “homes”.
No matter what the size.
No matter what it looks like.
No matter if we own it, rent it or whatever…….
I just want to make sure that you remember that.
Sometimes blogs can makes us feel “inadequate” or ” a little envious”.Â We see other peoples photos of where they live….how they decorate……and wish we could have it.
They are just houses.
Only we have the power to make them “homes”.
We can inspire each other.
If you feel mine has something you love.
I promise, it was done on a tight budget.
What you see is probably used or thrifted.
And if you like my style…..you can do the same with yours.
I hope it inspires you to do so……..
I will show you more of my home this coming week.
Don’t forget the “value” of your comments……
Have a special question about my “home”?
Something you are wondering?
Let me know.
PS. If you enjoy these posts, would you mind sharing them with your family and friends?Â There are share buttons by email, Facebook and all kinds of ways. I would also love for you to become a follower in some fashion. I will make sure it is worth it and don’t want you to miss out on the thrifty ideas and giveaways. I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Me
