The Keeping Room

Welcome to our...




When you enter the back door, you are there.




Maybe you would like to spend some time rocking.



Or maybe sitting on the couch, looking at a magazine.




You may sit close to the light to look at the magazine and sit
your coffee down.




Don't forget to look at the pictures of our babies!




Just sit back and enjoy yourself.




Please come back to our Keeping Room sometime
very soon!



I hope you enjoyed your visit to our Keeping Room. It was actually meant to be the eating area of the kitchen, but we enjoyed sitting in the kitchen so much we decided to make it more comfortable. The P's love to sit on top of the couch and rule the world. They also like to do a little sleeping up there too. We spend many hours sitting in our Keeping Room talking, reading, and listening to music. I hope you have a room in your house where you feel comfortable and are able to relax and let the troubles of the day fade away!

My Best to You Always,
~Dan~

Dan, I really like all the hues of reds that you have in your keeping room. I LOVE red and it is featured in many areas in my home, including my front door. Thanks for sharing. ~Ann

The keeping room is wonderful. I especially love the corner cupboard with all your butter molds. I have a thing about antique cupboards!
