Behind My Red Door who joined Misi over at 1890 Gable House Musing for week 8 of a display chain she has going on. The theme for week 8 is "You light up my life" The idea presented by Amy of Cottage Prims. Her thoughts for this theme "With Winter setting in and being in the dark, you light up my life" Early lighting, candles, lanterns or even new lights.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the lights in our home. They really do help keep the dark at bay and truly do light up our lives.

The Gingham Goose had a Christmas Open house this weekend and everything else I got was for Christmas, but this box for my front door will be stuffed with greens and winterberry right after Thanksgiving....I usually put a large green wreath with a deep red ribbon, but time for a change I think. I could not resist putting some harvest grasses and gourds in the box for a few weeks.

There are so many men and women who are away from families and loved ones so that we can all live with freedom. The soldiers see and experience things that we wish our children would never witness. They come back as different people, wiser, stronger and sadder, but they appreciate the country we live in. They put their lives on the line everyday, they see friends die and get hurt.
My son has been in Somalia, Iraq and now Afghanistan, he said this is his last tour.....but one never knows.
I want to Thank all of the veterans who have helped to give us the freedom we enjoy each day.

Ok, it is really time to make some changes in the front foyer....you see we just pass through it and don't really use it. The front door is opened for light and only get used on Halloween. Well, I did get a new light for the hall. I really love it. You see the other light was picked out 37 years ago. I did love milk glass back then. The wood in the hall and the floors were stained dark walnut, you see it was 1973. The walls were painted first, then wallpapered, then re wallpapered. It was a while ago, but what I did not realize was that it was 1989 the last time we wallpapered the hall. The downstairs foyer, runs down a hallway and upstairs into the upper hall. I don't know why I have neglected this area, but I have. I painted all the stained woodwork about 5 yrs ago, we had the floors stripped down and refinished, took the runner off the stairs and had them refinished, but I just never knew what I wanted to do.
The old stained wood. Well, I have decided this will be our first project of the new year. So wait and see...these are the before and I am not sure what you will see in the after, but this wallpaper will be gone, gone, gone! Stay tuned....
