Thankful Thursday

We are thankful for our new house; all the kitties have embraced our move and we love our new home!...A small tour...

We love the open layout: the view from our front door=the formal dining room to the right, the den area straight ahead and the kitchen to the right of the den...The house has high ceilings and the back of our house has 9 large windows=3 in the kitchen, 3 in the den and 3 in the master bedroom, which is a big hit with the girls.

Our dining room directly to the right of the front door; of course, the best part of this picture is the kitty who snuck in the photo :)

Views of the kitchen area, directly behind the den.

The girls (l-r: Sukki, Calle, Halle) love the kitchen island.

A view of the den from the kitchen island; notice the 3 large windows next to the door, leading to our patio and outdoor kitchen.

A view from the kitchen to the front door...This house is a large project, definitely a work in progress=curtains and plantation shutters are being ordered and will take months to be completed and installed...Hopefully, in 6 months or so, we will be able to show you the finished product.

What a gorgeous, sunny house! And best of all, the kitties are allowed on the kitchen island (and, I assume, everywhere else!).

Ooh very nice! I do not get on the kitchen bench like that.

Jacqueline, your new house is absolutely gorgeous, I like the fact that you have so many windows for Calle, Halle, and Sukki to enjoy the outdoors. Moving in a new place does require a lot of time to get things the way you want them. I especially love the picture of the girls on your kitchen island. They are a joy to look at and you have done a great job with your blog. Thanks for sharing the photos of your new home. :)

What a simply lovely house. I love the light airy views you have and no wonder the girls love it too. They can sit and watch the views from all around. Wow they all get allowed on the kitchen tops, I cant do that. Looks beautiful and I look forward to more pictures when you have the blinds etc finished. Just lovely. Hugs GJ xx
