TOUR OF HOMES


BooMama had this great idea and here I am. Welcome to my home!






My room's window open to this gorgeous view of Jurumirim's dam.


The place where I spend much of my time writing, reading and blogging!!

These beautiful table runners and tapestries were woven in wool by my mother.

My dining room where I have also my bookshelf.

A corner of my kitchen. I only used this wood burning stove four or six times in thirty year. It’s much smoke and much work to clean the kitchen.

Sonia, I am glad you decided to join us on the tour. I've already seen some of thos photos, of course, but it seems you have a wonderful home and a gorgeous view. Thanks for sharing it with us.

My office is rather crowded and a little messy, even though I am fairly well organized. Yours is much nicer to look at!

The photos of your mom and dad on their wedding day are priceless! What a great-looking couple they were. Who is the little girl?

Thanks for the tour of your home. It is lovely. I like the picnic area in the yard. The view from your window is magnificent.

Thank you for stopping by my home - this has been such fun and I'm so thankful Boomama thought of it. It has become an international event. I was in Campinas two years ago in March and enjoyed it very much. I only saw Sao Paulo on the way to and from the airport. Let's keep in touch!

Dawn said...

Thank you so much for visiting my home - this has been so much fun and has become an international event. Thank you to Boomama! I absolutely love your house and your view. Wow!

I was in Campinas two years ago in March and had a wonderful time. I only saw Sao Paulo on the way to and from the airport, of course. We did get out into the country on the last day, though.

Let's keep in touch!

Your home is lovely! The runners and tapestries are beautiful! What a great thing to have. Love your view of the dam. The countryside is so pretty there.
My husband went through Sao Paolo on his way to a missions trip with our church a few years ago. I can't remember the name of the small town that he went to now. I'll have to ask him.
Thanks for coming over to visit my home! It's nice to meet you as well!

Sonia,
I missed touring your home during "the rush" (I am still recuperating!), and although I have seen some of these photos before, it is a pleasure to see them again, plus some new ones. I love the special place where you have your picnic table and seats.

Pam in Tucson said...

Beautiful home and garden, Sonia! And such a wonderful view! I can see why you are such a joyous and loving person - your home reflects this.
