10 things I love about my home

Well, since I am a Tip Junkie addict, I decided to participate in her 10 favorite things about my home. First off, I love the front of my house. My husband built the steps including laying the brick. My kitchen is a favorite place especially during the holidays. Having a double oven helps alot!
My dining room furniture is the newest addition to our house.
Our gas fire place is great on cold winter days. Only problem is there aren't that many in Texas!
This is my new area of my house. I finally finished my table that I bought at Canton. This table will expand to a full size table. Here, I can sit and work on the computer in the living room.

I just love it when Lindsey cleans her room! You mothers with teenage daughters will know what I am talking about!
My great grandmother, Aggie crocheted our name several years ago. This was the first piece that I had professionally framed.
This print was given to me by my mother-in-law. It is a picture of the old Pig Stand in Beaumont. The records are of Elvis and yes, that bottom one is blue.
This is where I like to soak in the tub after a long day at school. I was happy Todd let me get a whirlpool tub when we were building the house.
This is the beginning of my cross wall. Each of these crosses has a story behind it. Lindsey has given me a couple, and Ashley brought the blue one to me from Guatemala.

I love what you did with the words above your tub. I picked my tub for my top ten as well. I enjoyed looking.

I love the vinyl on the walls. Even in the bathroom. What a great idea
