Home tour

DIY Guy and I like to take walks -- which usually are through the neighborhood, and "next door" neighborhood.  My favorite walks are on the bike path.  The best time to walk through the neighboorhood is at night -- because then you can see "inside" the houses (if they have lights on).

Our Nate loves to go to the local Showcase of Homes -- and tour the homes.  Usually he heads to the most expensive homes to see how the rich and famous live.

Today I'm in St. Louis - and we are taking a tour of a "family home".

Ver' nice curb appeal!

Just inside the door - the foyer.

the dining room to the right

The master bathroom -- which I call the "movie star bathroom"

I mean, seriously -- isn't this a bathroom to spend some time in?
I need want a bathroom like this - it's my favorite room in the house
Can we have dinner in here tomorrow?

The outside -- is just as beautiful...
heading around the garage to the backyard . . .

a (nearly finished) project in process - 
a stone path/with steps to the backyard.

so pretty

to add outdoor living space - an outdoor room
under the deck

Need a nap?  
The hammock with overhead ceiling fans
 is a perfect spot!

this is the backyard - not a park!

More park.

Two levels of outdoor living!

living in the tropics of St. Louis
 is a gardener's delight
This gardener -- is a pro.

Not a good idea to leave me home alone in your home -- 

This family home -- is where my sister and brother-in-law live.  They are very talented and creative people -- and wonderful hosts!  ...and when they open the blog to catch up on my posts, they will be very surprised to see their home -- cuz I didnt' tell them I was doing this!

Thanks Bob and Sandy!  ;)
You have a beautiful home that needed to be shared with the blog world!


  1. A talented family to be sure!
