What did I say this morning when I posted the pictures of my loot from the trip to St Louis? "I should be working" Well I should be now too instead of posting again.... But I did get some stuff done today-
Beth http://bethleintz.typepad.com/ and I did a little design redo job, then went to her house to use power tools! I brought my compressor and nail gun over to help her finish the base boards for her new craft room. The floor they put in is like linoleum, it is a vinyl type product. Looks like wood, doesn't it? Very practical for a work room and looks good, plus it went down in squares and they were able to do it themselves.
I have to write an article for Romantic Country this weekend, but think I am too tired tonight to start. I at least made an affort to go through the stack of past photos and found the ones needed for the story.
I came across some older ones that I liked and thought I'd post them.
Funny how much my home can change in a couple of years. I don't have any of those walls those colors any more, and the mantel is now my headboard.
The framed quilt square was done by my Grandma Nathan, there was a bag of them in her closet when she died, I framed them up and gave them to family members. That is one item I will always have, I am sentimental about family things.
I no longer own a single piece of the furniture in these three pictures! I gave the hutch to my niece, it used to belong to my mother, so I wanted to keep it in the family.
Lets see, a few years later, out of these 3 photos, I still have:
the cement cherub
the quilt (mom made it)
some of the dishes
Things do tend to change a lot around here.
Bill Mathews was the photographer for these pictures, he does lovely work. They were styled by Gloria Gale. I can't remember which magazines they were in, probably Romantic Country or Country Almanac.
