Show Off and Inspire - Thinkin' of Home

Today I get to brag on a dear friend, Ceekay at Thinkin' of Home.  Until her recent move she lived close by and we got to hang out quite a bit.  She's still in the area, but a little over an hour away, so we don't get to go play as often as we use to.  If you know her, then you already love her and her style, if you havn't met her before, then you are in for such a treat.   So CK, take it away, I can't wait for everyone to see your lovely home.

Hello everyone...Ceekay from Thinkin' of Home here.  I am so excited to guest post at Marty's fabulous blog.

Last year I was faced with one of the biggest decorating challenges of my life.  My hubby and I downsized to a Doublewide Mobile Home.  After the panic subsided, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work making a home stuck in the 70's, our forever home.

We have replaced, painted, or updated everything except the tubs.  I hope you enjoy the tour.  Grandiose it isn't, but home and mortgage is!!

Welcome to Our Home

My style is what I call Old World with a lot of Grandma's Attic mixed in!

We have a great room effect with the Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room open to each other.

If you are ever in the Phoenix area, let me know.....Marty and I would love to do lunch with you....see, the table is all ready!

I really do love my black and cream kitchen.  

My favorite touch is my shelves of vintage kitchen ware...

and my rolling pins....

Doing the Laundry is close....but filled with olden goodies...makes it bearable!

 I hope you enjoyed the tour.  Please visit sometime at Thinkin' of Home.  I would love the company!

  Can you even believe this is a Doublewide Mobile Home?  I think it is fabulous.   Thanks so much CK,  I have had so much fun getting to brag about you.

  1. You should be so proud Ceekay!
    What an amazing transformation!
    I love, love ,love it all!
    And you know I will be coming to have lunch with you before too long!
    Hugs friend,
    Thanks Marty!

  2. Wonderful! Love your vintage touches. Your rolling pins are so cute in their wall holder and I do believe I would WANT to do laundry if I had a space like that!
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Marty! Oh, what a treat to get and tour Ceekay's home! She's really got style hasn't she? She has really put together a pretty home. I wish you a blessed Easter to you and your family.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. I actually had to reread the post because I thought maybe I missed the words "This was our last home." Holy moley! I cannot believe the magic you worked Ceekay! Well done, A+.

  5. Hello and good morning to both of you! I want to say I think your home is just gorgeous and I would love to downsize too! I wish we had them here that were that nice. Have a very blessed Easter - both of you. sandie

  6. Ceekay's home is a perfect one to feature. Love visiting her warm and inviting home as often as I can. :)

  7. I love Ceekay and I love her home!! She inspired me when I was fixing our camper up so we could live in it for awhile.

  8. Ceekay, your home is beautiful and inspiration to those of us who don't have the large "dream home". When I lived in a mobile home I remember my affluent friend exclaiming "It's just like a home!" I laughed so hard knowing she didn't mean to be offensive. Home is what you make it.

    Have a blessed and Happy Easter!
