Laundry Room / Bedroom


I doubt if anyone has a laundry room quite like mine!



The doily at the window Bob's Aunt Eleanor made.  The doilies on the rack my Mom made.



The colorful doily on the bottom is another one that Aunt Eleanor made.



This one on the dryer my Mom made for the back of her couch.  I do love my doilies!!



The quilt rack in the hallway that Dan made got some quilts hung on it!



I love my hearts but have not found a place to put them so they are hung on the bulletin board behind the bedroom door for now.  I don't know why the wall looks blue as it is a beige.  



One window treatment in the bedroom is an old tablecloth my Mom crocheted



This is a friendship quilt a dear friend Julie Hayes who has passed away made for me when we left Pt. Huron, MI to go full timing so that friends could sign it.  It is very special.



The other window treatment in the bedroom.  Another old tablecloth my Mom crocheted.



Another little section of the bedroom.  The fruit dishes were my Grandma McKee's.  Almost time to leave for church.  I thank you for visiting and wish you a lovely day!

Some progress, Lots of MESSES!


Grab a chair and a cup of tea!  Our son, Dan from MD made and brought this beautiful oak bookcase to us!  I love it!


Picture got hung over the fireplace.


The den with Bob's desk.  Messy yet.  TV goes in the bottom right hand corner.


Antique phone and sewing machine hung between garage door and coat closet door.




The rug is blue.  That is our S&H green stamp coffee table that we got years and years ago!  Sentimental.  The rug is blue.


This is for my friend Pat to see!  It looks like two toned blue but the pile needs to be swept all one way and it is one color blue.  I like it.


Bakers rack will hold plants and tea pots.  It will be minus the tools left on it and the junk in front!


Dan also made this shelf to set the TV on to watch from theM table while we eat or play Pandora music while I work in the kitchen.  Dog pen will probably not stay there but right now it is Coco's place of security when we go away.  Not sure where the plant and antique butter churn will go.


More antiques go on the shelf above the piano that Dan made plus one on the other side of the doorway in kitchen area.  My antique Zither will either go on the wall beside the piano or on the other side of the sliding glass doors.  


This is the quilt rack that Dan made for me some time ago.  It is hung in the hall way and I have quilts hung on it now.


A picture of Diana's Sweet Shop from Pt. Huron, MI hung in the
guest bathroom.


Master bedroom.  Lots more to do in here!


This will be my sewing and craft space with shelves above and a feminine desk beside it for my computer.  It is in the master bedroom.


I have a large master bedroom closet.  My clothes will go on one side and around the corner.  There is a little place back in there that holds a white chest of drawers with doilies, etc.   On the right hand side will be craft supplies on the first upper shelf and I think plastic drawer containers for material along that right hand wall.  Dan put up other shelves for us in there for storage also.  This gives you an idea of what we have been up to.  We appreciate our kids help so much and especially Dan who came for a few days from MD to help us move, make so many things for us including the beautiful bookcase and help get things organized.   We have great kids and will continue to work away at our senior citizen pace!  Thanks for visiting!

House walk through


The day has finally arrived!  We did our house walk through!  We close on the 30th of Dec. and the movers will be coming January 2.  Yippee!!  We are thankful that God has opened the doors for us to do this.



Condo living will be different but we have our own house with a little courtyard between the houses.



The temperature was zero degrees when we left yesterday morning so I am sure with that kind of weather we will enjoy the fireplace!



The master bath.  Two sinks and another sink in the guest bath!  Where were all these sinks when we were bringing up four kids with one bathroom!



I am going to love that refrigerator after this apartment living!  I have had a small kitchen for years.  I turned around and everything was right there.  I may get lost in this one!



We were happy to have our son Scott and our granddaughter Emily come for a few days visit from VA.  This was taken at lunch time at Chili's.  I do love their potato soup and salad!



I have not crocheted much.  Made these scarves and doll scarves to match for Gracie and Cali.



Couldn't resist buying this Christmas Cactus.  I have been wanting one!



Sorry!  I just had to post a picture of Coco.  She looks so cuddly and comfy there!  I hope that all of you have a wonderful Christmas!  Thank you for all the past comments you have posted!

Catch Up!


I have been neglecting to post on my blog!  Too tired or too busy it seems.  We had a couple birthdays!  This is Cali, our youngest grandchild celebrating her 7th birthday!



This is the fireplace in the new house.



Right in the middle!  2810 will be our new address.  It was exciting for me to see these go up.



Cali was a Cupcake for Halloween!



Cali and Gracie ready to head out trick-or-treating!  It was a beautiful night with no rain and no snow!



Our new kitchen.  I think the refrigerator and stove will go in this week.  The space on the right hand side is where the electronic piano with a shelf above it will go for a TV.  We could get bar stools but for now, I don't think I want them.



Kitchen sink.  There is a little design in the counter which doesn't show up here very well.



Master bedroom closet.  I will have to buy more clothes to fill it up.  More likely I will store my material and craft supplies in here!



Den carpet.  We have this carpet in the den, two bedrooms and the hallway going to the bedrooms.



This is the color of the hardwood floors.



I had a birthday too.  Gracie and Cali will assist me in blowing out the candles.



My beautiful birthday cake!!!!



The landscaping was put in.  I think a couple of the bushes are Hydrangeas and the builder thought the tree in the left hand corner was an ornamental crab apple.  He didn't know much about what kind of bushes they were as the landscaper did it.



Whew!  If you hung in there this is the last one!  Thanks for visiting!

Sure wish my Mom would stop taking pictures of me!  I have to be patient with her because she is elderly!



Cement poured in the driveway!



Nice to see the brick is on!



Ceramic tile by the front door.  Grout has to be put in yet.



Michael had a birthday!!



Birthdays are more fun with kids!!



Our kitchen cabinets stored in the garage waiting to be put up.




 My egg lady's chickens are laying again so I was able to get these pretty, yummy eggs!



Beautiful rose from my sweet husband!  I am so lucky!



I cut these flannel squares out and sewed together in rows for a lap quilt before we moved.  By working away at it a little at a time I finally got the rows sewed together.  It will have to wait till we move to get finished so that I will have more room and hopefully more energy to work.  Thanks for visiting!
