I am getting closer to having these rooms look the way I want!






These are the new living room and what I think we will call the reading room. It is really supposed to be the dining room but we neither need or want it to be one right now. So My mom and I set it up as a reading room because we will really use that. I had the two chairs but their seats needed to be re-done. Matthew helped me pull nails and put them back together. My mom and I found the cute little table and lamp thrifting while she was here. We put the hutch between the two areas to hold our books. It also has my favorite loveboxes and my bowl by Miss Vanessa. I am quite happy with the living room although the table under the window will eventually replaced with another after it is repaired. It was one of the victims of the movers. We did discover a few treasures as we unpacked. I found a couple of pencil drawings my husband did about a million years ago that I loved and framed. The gargoyle/dragon is from my mother-in-law's home town in Austria. I also finally framed a watercolor he did a long time ago too, thanks to my friend Amber for the going-away gift frame. All in all, Ireally like my blue reading room and it is nice to have a room to have visitors in that is usually clean!

How fun to have your mom there. You both have done wonders. It takes me months to get the rooms in a house done the way you have. Looks great!
