My sister lives less than a mile from our home. Den and I went over last night to take more pictures. I started with 2 photos in a post 2 days ago.
Her husband Dave built this house, and Robin of course put all the personal touches on it. Together they make a great team. So, here are some more of my favorite parts of their home.
Click any picture you want to see larger.
As Robin points out to me, this wall of awards are not necessarily full of top place wins. In fact, she estimated 90% of these plaques were just for participating in a sport or activity, etc. But what a great display.
Robin has her desk right off the front door. I really wonder how much she actually works at it being it is so spotlessly clean, always. Notice her name plate from when she was secretary before she got married.
They call this garage sale find, their "vintage phone". The kids had to actually learn how to dial it. Her modern children did not realize at first that you need to bring your finger all the way to the bottom each time. Sorry, but this does not look vintage to me.
Nice handy display of snacks on the kitchen counter.Robin looked a long while before she found this great mechanism to rotate canned foods in her pantry.
On another shelf in her pantry. Click it to see her labels.
She found some of these containers at garage sales.
Other storage in their garage. All labeled and easy to find.
She found this cute desk for McKenzie at a garage sale. I think Robin goes garage sailing just about every Saturday when the weather is good.
Robin made McKenzie's name out of painted Popsicle sticks.
What boy would not want a sword in his room?
Davey brought this home from the stake musical he was in last year.
The shoe part of it, serve as the book ends.
Oh how I love the plaque below!
Robin found this mannequin at another garage sale. Brooke uses it to put her outfit on that she plans to wear the next day. I guess this little black number just stays on it during the weekends?
Have you ever seen a more organized hall closet?
A picture she keeps on her wall of our Dad and his brother Gene, taken in the 1930s.
Three of Robin's favorite books displayed by the fireplace.
Robin is the only one I know who wears red, white, and blue when she goes out to vote. She is also the only one I know who keeps a big flag by her front door.
The last picture did not come out the best (because of the photographer), but don't you love the teeny tiny door they have up top? That is Davey's face coming to greet us.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
