{ Another Tour }

I'm sad to say I didn't win the canning giveaway. :(

But, on a good note, I have another home tour for you today! This is my sister, Ape's home. {no, that is not her real name & no, she is not offended by it. It is just a nickname that we've used for years.} I'm not sure how these nicknames for my family all became animals. Maybe because our home was such a zoo...ha, ha...I crack me up!...ANYWAY...

Ape is an amazing do-it-yourselfer. She has more energy than anyone I know. She's so busy with work, church duties & being a mom and still has the energy to sand, paint & be creative with her amazing home finds. She can always find a good deal! I envy her energy {as you know, I still haven't finished decorating my daughter's room}. So, enjoy the few pictures I got of her home.






I should have taken more pictures of all the homes. I just don't get to see these people that often & visiting with them was on my mind way more than taking pictures of their homes. I have one more home to show you tomorrow.

What a great way to store those spools of ribbon. I just love seeing how other decorate their homes, so inspiring.
I'm with you on the daughter's bedroom thing. At the rate I'm going it might get done by her next birthday :0)

Love your sisters gift wrap area.

You can find antique mercury or silver orbs on ebay and at flea markets. I have seen reproductions at Kirklands, Target, Ballard Designs and Wisteria.

They are usually most in abundance during the holidays.

Good luck!
