I'm posting a picture of Moma...I have more pics on my blog, but some were asking to see her...She got a perm right after this picture and I'm sure she would have rather me post that one, but I want to show her with the arch my brother built her. It is a real Prior Life piece. The posts came from the little farm house that raised her, and the top is a salvaged baby bed. It means so much to her, if only those post could tell their story...
Moma only wieghs about 95 pounds, dripping wet!
Look at all the cars in the background, at my sister's house...I told you we have big get togethers!
Moma's lived the life many of you, on these blogs, are living right now, She sat up at Market and Edom, when it was a new thing, and various other places, including First Monday and Town East Mall. She still dreams of doing creative things...and at 85 she still earns pay from work, through her weekly newspaper article, but of all the things she does, she will tell you the best and most cherished is the quiet time she spends with her Savior every morning, and all the day long. Let me tell you, as she ages, I am so comforted that she knows what the future holds for her.
Here is the other side of her "Smidgen Shop"
Now, here are a few pics of what we have going on...
This is my dining room ceiling...I know, I know, I need a new fan, but that's for later...We have been working on this old place for 13 years, While raising 5 kids, but one of the first things my husband did was to tear down about three ceiling to get back to the, at least 12 foot, original ceiling...beautiful wide planks..Tomorrow, this dining room will have dentil crown molding, yee haw...I can't wait.
My laundry room, kitchen, dining room, and living room are all one area, another thing my husband did years ago, but we never finished it out... Now new floors, baseboards and paint.
( blonde beauty ~ Olympic)I wanted a light color, because, there is not much natural light, plus dark floors throughout, also dark ceiling in dining area part.
My house has lots of different ceiling heights and the living room part is sunken. I like the quirkiness, but I know it wouldn't do for some.
Dining room...this will look different all painted up!
Looking at kitchen from dining area...
We put these floors upstairs, too. Remember my little spot, upstairs?
They are vinyl planks...and I love them!
I want to paint some of my wood floors, but that is another post... and another project.
So everything is a big mess, but progress is being made!~
