Mini home tour, Newbie party started!

Hello there all!~
 I thought I would share some snippets of my Mom's townhouse. She downsized around 5 years ago, and it was the best thing she could have done.  Although, she misses all her property, sprawling gardens, and space, she has adjusted well.
Her place is so charming,cozy, and home sweet home.
She recently painted her Brick fireplace. It was originally dark brick, and she hated it.
She used a kit called Brick ANew.  She said it was so very easy to do.
This of course is the before.  It really darkened the space, and brought the ceilings down.
Did I mention she loves birds? Oh yes indeed she does.
As you can see, she has filled every nook and cranny in her space.
She has been inspired by blogs too, as you can see she found these wooden boxes that many of you have as well.
She also loves Chalk paint! She did a great job on this piece.
I love her kitchen window treatment. So charming.
Guest room, and I will say it is so very cozy!
Can you tell my boys are having fun?
 AS for me....well...
That would be a YES!~
Enjoy the newbie party.
Blogging six months or less, and/or less than 100 followers.
PLEASE add my link or button.
If you are NOT a friend, sure would love to have you.

ANOTHER reminder, is to head on over to the MOUNTAIN of giveaways!
10 cans of Chalk paint and more in the works, very very GENEROUS, and one of the best giveaways I have ever seen!

Sorry I have been a bad host at the newbie party. I have barely a minute to even make this post.
I appreciate you stopping by and joining in.

I enjoyed seeing your mother's home, Debbie. It's beautiful!

We are in the process of planning just such a move, if we can get our home sold next year. I know we will miss the yard and gardens, but it is time to downsize and we accept and look forward to the change, although it will be an adjustment.:-)

Debbie, what a great way to downsize and have such lovely appointments throughout her home. First off, you know I am a big fan of her fireplace makeover. I know doing mine was the best thing I have personally done to my home. She has done a lovely job putting her stamp on the rooms. Thanks for sharing it with us.
