These photos were taken in December, so there are fresh magnolia and pine swags at the front door.
We had a pretty calm December here in Illinois. The first snowfall came a week later.
The front entry hall is paneled with the original cedar paneling. It's dark but very cozy and the smell of the cedar is wonderful.

There is a small room to the side of the front door that was a little ladies lounge area connected to
the powder room. A coat closet was added by the previous owners so the room is a bit smaller now,but there is still room for a table and a side chair there.
|The table is an old metal gun box made into a table. The owner's nameplate is still on it.|
|Love these old German walking sticks that have completed trail tags on them.|
I love to collect small old oil paintings so there is a little collection of them in this little room.
|These boxes are great for guest towels and extra soaps.|
