Welcome to my entry. This is a two story entry and was wallpapered with an embossed paper probably from 1970 the year the house was built. It was a light and soft color so we lived with it for a few years. Then I convinced Mr. Precious to have it ripped off and paint the walls.

Here you can see the olden wallpaper and our stained glass window.

The excitement began!

The walls are new and the wainscoting has been painted a sparkling white but the floors are the olden tiles from the day the house was built.

I was so excited to be able to hang my bird prints up the curving staircase.

Now you can see the new carpet has been installed up the stairs and the new granite floor has been laid. I just love it!

Here is the entry at the most beautiful time of the year ~ Christmas!


  1. I would love to have your staircase! It is right out of Gone With The Wind! And the carpet is gorgeous. You did a wonderful job with the entry. I love the new floor too. I don't think your house looks like the 70's at all. Or you have changed it quite a bit. I also love your prints on the wall going up the stairs...oh heck, I love it all! Great job. Kudos to Mr. Notesongs as well.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week, Shelia! :-)
