Parlor

On fancy days, we call this room, just off the foyer, the parlor. On regular days, I use the moniker, front room. Phill dislikes that name. He sticks to parlor. Who knew he possessed such snootiness?

The drapes, left by the prior owner, are time-ravaged silk. One day I will need to replace these. According to my mother, I need a taller Christmas tree. Next year.

This house looks just gorgeous. Every room is better than the last!

Thanks, Liz. We finally got the boxes removed by a recycling group. I'm trying to get a good photo of the foyer.

Jessica & I would love to see more pictures of the house (with you guys in them!)...we don't have enough to do in the lab right now!..and if Phill insists on "parlour" (is that with or without a 'u') I would insist on "man-cave"...that should even it out!

I'll see what I can do about that, Jon. Since Phill bikes to work, he doesn't look presentable when he arrives home.

I did get to see a picture of your, your lovely wife, and your cute baby at the March of Dimes event.

If you are British, it is parlour. Here in the States, it's best to spell it parlor. No "u" necessary.

Great house! How wonderful for you - It's really really lovely.

The room is beautiful. I love the windows plus it looks comfortable but not too stuffy.

I like the sound of "parlor" too, much better than front room. For some reason, the word "parlor" conjures up an image similar to the room versus front room.

I'd like to see a taller tree too in that room.

Putting in my request now to see pictures of the foyer. The leaded glass doors look pretty from what I can see in the photos.

A MUCH taller tree next year :) Those windows will be costly to re-drape with silk. Better start saving your pennies now! Still a lovely lovely home and I can't wait to visit.
