Good morning and come in and have a cup of coffee. I am so sorry, but I ate the cake! Next time maybe, okay? It is about time for Pumpkin Spice coffee, is it not? Anyway I am glad to see you and want to share a wonderful home with you. We are going on a field trip to Springfield, Il.Yes, we are going Glam!!! Let me first explain, that I have always loved antiques and "Early American" decorating, as it used to be called. Now I try to lean toward Colonial, which I love. However, last week when we visited Beth and Ryan, Beth introduced us to Lolo Moore's Interiors. She had hosted Beth's baby shower at her house and Beth had commented, she wished her Mom and Grandmom could have come up for the shower, as "they would love your house." Lois kindly invited Beth to bring us. Her husband is an author and had written this book for Grandpa's and grandson's, entitled,"50 Things That Make Me Sad". After reading it we decided Michael needed it for he and Andrew to read, so we went to her shop, Lo Lo Moore's, and purchased several. I purchased one for the church library, but instead gave it to Curt, in memory of his CoCo. (They were very close). The day we visited her shop she reissued her invitation to come see her home. Need I say we jumped at it!lol It is a church they converted into a home. I am telling you it is gorgeous! I have never seen so much color and I LOVED it. I could have settled in here and been quite happy. Who woulda thunk it?lol I hope you enjoy the visit as much as I did.
She has several sitting areas through out but her livingroom is just beautiful. I liked the pinks she uses, and her reason for that is, people live in a non colorful work environment and need color in their life at home. Makes sense, doesn't it?
Thank you Lois for allowing the tour and thank you all for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Don't you love my fall header? Slip over to the Blog Fairy on my sidebar and view what she has. She is so good at creating headers and back grounds. I like to tell her she makes me look good.lol
PSS: My granddaughter in law, Lindsey, (yes the one who thought I had decorated for Christmas in July)lol has started a blog. It is Jenkins Journey, and is on my side bar. Will you visit her and tell her I sent you? She is a delightful girl and just a joy to be around.
