Just before I moved everything out of my sewing room.....what a mess, eh?
A view from the hallway....the picture is too dark....told ya.
A brighter picture. I am happy with most of the changes. The window treatments were an unexpected struggle, and not exactly what I had in mind. My mom likes them, so that's the most important thing. The only thing left to do is find some sweet things for the walls. That may take a while....I am loathe to put holes in these freshly painted walls until I find something I love.
Every girl needs a satin heart pillow. There's enough fabric left for two small square pillows with cute ball fringe trim. That's down on my to-do list for now.
I'm not sure exactly how things will pan out around here. My mom may "commute" between here and her house, which is only two streets over. Time will tell...she grows more frail by the week. Although I know there will be many a bump, I pray daily for patience and strength. Change is good, right?
Since Thanksgiving is around the corner, I want to add to my thanksgivings list tonight. I could continue this list forever, and still not mention all my blessings. Right now I am so thankful for...
....warmth, because I just can't seem to shake the cold the last few months
...my son, Timothy, who makes me laugh every day
...my washer and dryer...you know how I feel about laundry : )
...books, because without the written word, life would be so bland
...lemons and cinnamon...they spice up my life
...Emily, my girl...whom I see so much of myself in, and yet I'm so grateful she is her own person
...lower gas prices
This post has been a long time coming. I had thought to have more pictures, but once I began to upload them realized these were the best of the lot. Many thanks to all of you for your encouragement during this big project.
