Hi all!! I recently returned from accompanying my husband on a business trip to Scottsdale, AZ. When I found out I was going, I contacted the lovely, talented, world famous blogger, Karen Valentine from My Desert Cottage to see if she was free for a day..she WAS!! She graciously picked me up at my hotel and showed me around Scottsdale, her favorite stores AND took me to her fabulous house!! So, for White Wednesday, I am showing her BEAUTIFUL home!!
These pictures are of her living room..
The TV cabinet she painted white and decoupaged with sheet music..so clever!!
A table she painted and decoupaged in the corner of her living room..
Here is her family room. I just SWOONED over the beauty and creativity of it!!
Remember you can click on the picture to get a larger view and be able to take in all the gorgeousness of it!!
The formal dining room..
Love the gallery of displays..the three black framed pieces are her original art work..
The counter beyond her kitchen sink..
The breakfast nook...
The guest bath..
She glued fabric to the panels of the cabinets..beautiful!!
The serene sanctuary of the master bedroom..
WITH a fireplace!! How romantic!!
Everywhere you look were clever touches..Karen's attention to detail was amazing!!
Her mom had made this lace jacket in the '70's..isn't is SO Magnolia Pearl?? ;-)
And here is her studio..for more fabulous pictures of her studio, go here. Karen is the hostess of Where Blogger's Create..AND she is the one that made over my blog..which is her business~she has fabulous ideas and is so easy to work with!!
I had a wonderful time with Karen..she is beautiful, and sweet and kind and loving....stay tuned for pics of the shops she took me to!!
Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
