~~My Girlfriends Home!!!~~~

Good morning my friends! Today I am showing you the home of my friend. She and I have known each other for almost 30 years and a few years ago she and her hubby moved to the beach and built a gorgeous home. We spent the weekend there last weekend and she graciously allowed me to take pictures to show you! Today we will see the foyer, living and dining rooms. Tomorrow I will show you the KITCHEN and sunporch so please come back!!!! OK, WELCOME to this lovely home. This is the foyer. She and I have VERY similiar taste AND she was lucky enough to have lived in Japan for 2 years so she has some GORGEOUS pieces!!!!!! Can you tell I am JUST A LITTLE JEALOUS:):):)
 Looking from in the living room.
 To the left of the foyer, the living room.
 This is a gorgeous fountain in the corner.

 Close up of fountain. It was running when we got there, I should have asked her to turn it on for the pics. This was taken the next day. I love that screen behind it! And the rattan shoes. In Japan you ALWAYS take your shoes off at the door!
 A corner of the living room.
 These came back with her and are 2 of my favorite pieces.
 Here we are in the dining room. I LOVE her chairs!

 Love these candle holders too! She also makes all her arrangements.
 Love this piece too. And, all the beautiful things she has displayed on it!
 Here is the family room.
 This black wall unit is gorgeous against the rusty color of the wall!

 That is the 2 of us in the picture on the right top shelf! You can click on any picture to enlarge it.

 Picture over the fireplace.
 Going upstairs. See how beautifully the leaves on the wall match the picture?!

So, that is PART of the tour. Be sure to come back tomorrow! Thanks again to our dear hosts for having us!!!! XO, Pinky


  1. Your friend's home is so rich and warm, and definitely has a Japanese influence. I love how she's displayed her collections in creative vignettes.
    Have a wonderful day, Pinky!

  2. I'd love to live at the beach! Can't wait to see more of her home.

  3. Hi Pinky, your friends home is lovely. So warm and welcoming. How sweet of her to allow all of us in for a tour, looking forward to more. hugs ~lynne~

  4. Beautiful and very lovely beach home, I lake it!
    Big greetings and happy weekend dear Pinky:)

  5. Just to share with you folks, i have a new post today on Amish Stories from the Terre Hill days even that was just held in Lancaster Pennsylvania. It was a very hot day but i was able to get i think a few good images from this event. The town is populated with a mix of Amish and old order Mennonites which only adds to its charm. They even have what has become famous in Terre Hill their "outhouse race". The town sits on a hill so it overlooks Lancaster farmland in almost all directions. This is one of my favorite towns to visit because its free from commercialism, so if you are looking for a really all American kind of town with the added bonus of seeing its Amish and Mennonite residents at work and play, then this town is for you. Thanks folks. Richard from Amish Stories.
