Crafts / Hot Pink Bathroom

I love my hot pink bathroom!!!!

Shower area!

The wall of the shower area with the pictures of flowers on the wall and a full length mirror.

Did I tell you I love my hot pink bathroom!!!!!

Off the bathroom is the walk in closet.  Now you can only wear one pair of slacks at a time and I do not need all that space for clothes.  This will be a good storage area for my material but I don't know if it will ever be completely organized!

My new desk and shelf above it to file papers.  It is at the end of my craft counter.

The 8 foot craft counter.  No excuse now not to get something done!

My wooden spool collection on the end wall with bits of lace and ribbon wrapped around some of them.

In the middle of my crafting space is this sign.  I think it says it all!!  Sorry for the reflection in one corner.

My talented card making friend suggested using one of these curtain rods for something.  I had an AHA moment and remembered I had just thrown one of these in the trash barrel.  I retrieved it and it makes a great place to hang my ribbons and laces.

LET THE FUN BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
