As I promised in my previous post….today is the day that you all get to see some of Mom’s new home. We still have alot to get decorated, but it is slowly getting done. I try to go over a couple times a week to just help her decorate, but she has so much stuff that it gets overwhelming. Anyway, here are some pictures to start with. We will start in the kitchen, but be aware that this room isn’t totally finished yet. We still need to work on decorating the top of her cabinets and there are a few things that she still wants to hang, but here is just a taste. Enjoy!!
It is definitely taking shape. She had her light above the island put in. Doesn’t it look beautiful? She is going to change her curtains above the kitchen sink as well. Vickie from North Shore Primitives is making them and I must say that they are real cute and very prim! I still need to finish putting some of the knobs on the cabinet doors and drawers, but we are slowly getting there. Here are some items that are around Mom’s kitchen. Just some of her cute decorations. Don’t you love her dried apples and I totally love her old keg. She put an old flour sifter in the top and filled it with artificial potatoes and garlic and an old antique scoop. Great idea – huh?
Her family room isn’t totally done yet, but I will show you a little bit of it. More to come so stay tuned!
Don’t you love Mom’s tree? It is just like mine…..we bought them at North Shore Primitives. The neat thing about Mom’s tree is that she has old cross stitched pillows on her tree. Yep, she cross stitched each and every pillow. Here is a close up of those. I love them because they were made by her!! Yep… I am being sentimental again (lol).
Aren’t they great? My Mom was always into cross stitching. She could stitch for hours and hours. Here are some Christmas pillows that she made. I just love these as well.
Let’s take a look at her dining room. Shall we? This is pretty close to being finished.
Here is her front room. This room is completed, but we are still trying to figure out how to hide those nasty electric cords. Geesh, those things are so unsightly.
Here is her hallway, entry way and half bath. Hope you are enjoying the tour.
Well, I think I have posted every single picture that I took. We hope you enjoyed the tour of Mom’s New Home! I will keep you posted on Part 2. Until Next Time ~ I will leave you with this picture of Mom’s front door. Isn’t it too cute?
