~ More of Jens' Beautiful Home ~

Hello Girlies,
Yippee Skippee !! It's Fantastic Friday once again !! LoVe knowing I have the entire week-end to just go at normal speed !! I always seem to be busy, BUT, find time for Meee !! That is what keeps me sane !! Seeking out fun treasures, and always on the hunt ..

I finally got some more pictures of Jens' beautiful, shabbylicious, dreamilious home !! I wanted to share more of these with you .. Soo, here we go, step inside and peek with me, this time we're looking at more pretties, and the detail to the rooms, and pieces of furniture that she has redone, and applied beautiful appliques to these pieces !! she does such a beautiful job, and I still drool just looking at all the beauty !!

Look at the chandys, in all there glory, in every room shining beautifully .. Look at the precious little girls room .. fit for the princess she is !! I adore all the hand painted rose dishes !! Don't her colors just all blend, and go so perfectly !! there is something so serene and so comforting with their color choices ..

Notice the shabbied sagey green brickwalls in the family room .. They were all painted several coats of different paint colors from all her years .. ( this home was built in 1924) as, their contractor was sanding the walls, Jen LoVED all the colors and natural red brick coming through, so they decided to just sand, and let them all show through !! I think it's GORGEOUS, and adds texture and warmth to this sweet room !! See girlies, for those that have painted over their bricks, there is always another look to achieve !! this truly looks fab !!

Well, I soo hope all of you have enjoyed this, another peek into beautiful Jens' home, and KNOW with their 3 young children, you go upstairs, and this is where you find all their treasures, and toys, and play things .. What a wonderful idea, and to be so blessed to have such a BiG beautiful home to do so !! this is one happy, very blessed family .. And Jen, thank you so much for being so gracious and inviting us all in your home again !! And Jen, remember your tea party, and inviting all of us over, let's do it !! hahaha .. But, wouldn't that all be great fun !! Yep, a beautiful home to have tea parties .. Gosh, just look at all the dreamy dishes !!

Okay girlies, be inspired, thanks again to all of you sweeties, for the wonderful birthday wishes, surprises, and cards .. You truly are wonderful to me, and I truly feel blessed to call so many of you "friend" .. Beautiful women you are .. Happy wonderful Mothers day to all her are blessed to be called so ~ xo

Big Happy hugs ~tea~

  15. ALL of the comments are so overwhelming! Everybody is so sweet. As Tanza said if you have any questions just ask me - as I am not a pro, I just love to redo things and paint. Right now I am redoing an old french couch I found (painted it now today I am putting a glaze on it!) AS I stated before I love to applique thing. As I told Tanza before I would love to have you guys over for tea - one thing I don't make tea! You guys bring the tea and I will set out dishes?

    Thanks again Tanza for Loving my house. All the comments make the hard work worth it, as a lot of time I feel like a failure when it comes to home decorating. I need to figure out how to do a blog!? Tanza, I'll make lunch and you can show me how :)

    Happy Mother's Day to ALL! May GOd bless you and keep you safe!

  18. Hi, Tanza,
    Doesn't Jen have a beautiful home? Everything so charming and elegant. I also looked at your previous post of the home tour. I love going on home tours and seeing others wonderful homes. Happy Birthday, too, dear friend! You are turning 50, and I will be 60 on my next birthday. I am just thankful God keeps giving me another year to enjoy life and His beautiful world. Happy Mother's Day and have a blessed week~ Vicki

  24. Hi Roselle,
    I did talk with Jen, and she said she bought those peticular plates at Mervyns years back .. They are Rachell Ashwell brand .. I NEVEReven knew Rachell had her own line of dishes back than .. Maybe on ebay or on-line you could find some today !! See, I'm always learning new things STILL !! They are really beautiful, all the other plates are made in Germany !! Hope this helped you .. Good luck hunting some for you ~
    hugs ~tea~
