Living Room

I know...I had planned to show you the upstairs bedroom....but I have decided to bring you through the front door and show you the living room.

Our doorbell is a bee, of course, but the inside chime quacks like a duck when you press the button. Unfortunately, they had no buzzing bee chimes.

All of the pictures in our living room were painted by a local artist, George Losch. He specialized in nature and farm scenes around our county. Flanking the fire place are two of his bird prints....chickadees and cardinals. The fireplace mantle is home to Hubbs' hand carved bird collection. These have been a cherished gift over the years from my Mother.
To the left of the fireplace is an antique child's rocking chair that was my grandmother's as a child. I have had it in my possession ever since I was a child....having spent countless hours rocking away. I still have vivid memories of watching "Lassie" in that rocker.
It is now home to a little fellow named "Honey".

Hi Bev, I have been reading your blog for a bit now. But, I need to know where you got the doorbell. We have ducks as pets and I would love to have a door bell quack when someone comes to visit. Ginny
