Hi, I’m Penny from Penny’s Vintage Home. My vintage home is located in eastern New Mexico, about 8 miles from the Texas border. I live here with my husband that I lovingly refer to as H (short for Howard) We have been married for 46 years…wow, that’s a long time! I am so excited to be a part of the House Snooping Series, thank you so much for inviting me Suzy! I hit the “publish” button on my blog for the first time April 28, 2012 and found out just how much I would come to love blogging! The photo above is the front of our home. We painted the brick white earlier this year and I love it!
My home tour begins in the family room. When we moved here 7 years ago, the walls in this room were dark paneling, the fireplace did not have a mantle, and the floors were covered with a light beige carpet.
The kitchen is my favorite room in the house. It is bright and cheerful with plenty of room for everyone to join in the cooking. When we moved here, the cabinets were dark wood and the floor was covered with blue indoor outdoor carpet.
In this photo, the formal dining room is ready for Thanksgiving with glittered pink pumpkins. I made the ruffled tablecloth from muslin and pieces of lace…the chairs are covered with vintage wedding dresses.
This is our back yard. The structure on the left is the Potting Shed. H made it from doors and windows that we collected on a trip up thru Kentucky, Tennessee, and on into New York. H is originally from NY and we visit family there every couple of years. The building on the right is the Studio. It originally was a second double garage… there is also double garage in the front of the house. So…we removed the garage door and installed 3 sets of French doors and added heat and air conditioning. I do crafts there and the back half is storage for seasonal items. I hope you enjoyed my home tour!
