Housekeeping has never been my strong suit.
We live in an 1,100 square foot home and that’s counting the garage. It’s a two level pitched roof Cape Cod style home and it’s just enough for me to clean. Any more and I would need help I think.
Miss Courtney is now in what was our bedroom since her medical equipment didn’t all fit into this smaller room anymore. So my hubby and I sleep in a room that is 12×9 in a double bed.
SO here’s the tour.
The most precious thing in this photo is the quilt laid across the end of the bed. It was made by my husbands Grandmother Lena for our wedding. It is hand quilted and made form scraps that she had from making Jerry’s and her other grandchildren’s clothing in the 60’s and 70’s. I made the pillow shams in 1989 under her tutelage using the scraps from the maternity clothes she made me when I was pregnant with Jonathan.
Since we don’t have a headboard and the bed is against a window I was at a loss as to how to handle curtains. So I hung another quilt to act as a curtain and a visual headboard. It was also made by hand by Granny Lena for our son, Jonathan. I will make a change once we have a headboard but for no it works.
I would grab these in case of a fire or tornado, they mean that much to me.
Then there are photos taken three years ago for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I am sure you notice the two frames with the flowers in them. They are a running joke here. They are supposed to have photos of myself and of my husband from our childhoods. I have chosen the photos I want but need to order the prints. The frames have been hanging, with the flowers, for six months now…oh well…maybe one day…LOL!
