Hey everyone, how was your week-end? Ours was rainy and gloomy. We desperately needed the rain but why does it always have to wait until the week-end to show up. Monday's forecast is for sunny skies and highs in the mid sixties. And since I have been a bit slowed down by my recent surgery I thought I would share with you my Mom's guest room. Above is how it looked before she moved in last June. It had been a young child's room. And since my Mom didn't have a lot of time to get everything repainted, and since some of the other rooms needed it more, she decided to leave the color and just work with what she had.
Over here she has a white wicker shelf and some things to make it homey. My Mother is like me, or should I say I am like her. We both like to scour garage sales and 2nd hand stores for art work and accessories.
gloomy day. See the art work...
Here's a little better view. It's a whimsical piece that my sister Susie the art teacher made for her. I like it because it's a bit unexpected.
Oh and I wanted to share with you my Mom's tabletop in her dining room. Lot's of charming blues.
I bought her this soup tureen for Christmas. I just love the birds and the pretty folk art look of it.
Some pretty blue glassware balances it out.
And next time I will try to wait for a sunny day for pics. Enjoy your week everyone!
