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!

Such wonderful pieces that will bring memories to you every time you see them! I love doilies too. I have one made by my ex-husbands great aunt. I got rid of the husband, but kept the doily. She was a gifted crafter.

I adore all of your doilies and table cloths and quilts. You're right, no one else would have the same type of decorations you do, and oh the memories! Thank you for sharing with us. I so enjoyed it.
Blessings, Betsy

Such sweet pretty doilies and I love the one your mother made for the back of her couch. I would love to have a beautiful old fashioned couch with a doily on the back. Folks used to do that a lot, I think. I'm afraid that would never work in our rough and tough living room with all the animals. I love seeing your new home and things you have added.

I love that you have so many pretty memories out where you can actually SEE them on a day-to-day basis. That wasn't the Julie Hayes that used to blog, was it, that made that quilt? I lost touch with a Julie Hayes that used to blog.
Love all the special touches in your home. xoDiana

Hi Sue, Thank you! Good choice keeping the doily! LOL Enjoy the beauty of it. Nancy

Hi Betsy, Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed looking. I don't like to have things that I can't display or use. We have gone to a smaller house so have to pick and choose what to keep. Take care. Nancy

Hi Cheryl, Thank you! It was my privilege to share my special things with my blogging friends. Nancy

Hi Henny Penny, Glad you could visit. These doilies are out of reach for Coco but if they were laying around I would not put it pass her to make a bed among them! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Nana Diana, Thank you! No, that was not the Julie Hayes you are looking for. She was the sweetest lady and could do any kind of craft you could think of. Very talented. Nancy

Hi Nancy! What a lovely display of your sentimental items! You are so blessed to have such a collection from your dear Mother, aunt, and friends! To have them within everyday sight is a great reminder of their love and talent! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

Hi Felecia, So sweet of you to write that! I have to agreed that I am blessed to have these passed down to me. Glad you enjoyed looking! Nancy

How lovely your new home is!! I agree with you about using or at least displaying our pretty things. I think I have the exact doily as you have, the one on the dryer. I believe that is the pineapple pattern.

The sentimental value in those doilies is probably what makes you like them so much. *smile* It must have taken a lot of quiet time to make those lovely treats for you to enjoy generations later. *smile* I also love the quilt rack and the lovely quilts on there. It's the memories that make a house a home. I wish you both all the best as you enjoy old memories and make new ones in your new home. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

Hi Granny Marigold, Thank you! Yes, I believe you are right and that is the pineapple pattern. I can crochet just a little but not that tiny needle and thread stuff. Have never tried that! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Mommy of two growing blessings, Thank you! I do love the things of times past. The quilt hanger is not old but was made by our son Dan. I am so fortunate to have all these lovely things. Nancy

Linda said...

What a lovely and creative way to repurpose all your beautiful lace tablecloths and doilies. Your home is coming together into a wonderful reflection of you and what you hold dear.
