*Note: I just noticed that my pictures say the wrong date on them. I just took these pictures last night...?? I'm using Howards camera but have NO idea how to change the date! Anyway...they are NEW! :) I am not too camera savy...
Every year I say I am going to get rid of stuff. I don't need so much stuff for Christmas. I have been saving and collecting Christmas decor for about 55 years now. I never do. Now and then the girls come and get a few things...but not often.
I am beginning to let things go. Not Christmas though...I sometimes don't unpack a box but then the next year I am delighted that I saved it..and out if comes. This year I unpacked everything I could find. Some things are still missing since my move. Two white feather tree's and decorations...I have NOT a clue where they could be...
Oh well... :) The bedroom won't have it's little white tree..but I added a piece to the headboard. So...
Sometimes I wish I could see room from a distance. So..I took a few pictures but I still didn't do them in the correct sequence. No matter.
Now...just imagine the room all freshly painted a lovely soft gold, that horrible ceiling all painted white and the trim all white...and thick lovely moss green carpet on the floors. The living room will be painted a butter cream..and rich hardwood floors in the kitchen... :)
The painting starts in January! :)
The little hall is being papered in red toile...(rose red)..soooo anyhooo... :)
Howard in his favorite reading chair. It was a wedding gift from me. It is one of those glider chairs with the ottoman to match, which also glides.
He whined that his "brother has one and I love it! I always sit in it when I visit him! So...he now has his own. Now Emerie can tell him to go home and sit in his own chair! :)
One of my little old suitcases that I have had for years. Makes for storage of photo's etc. also.
This is the area in front of the fireplace...
A view of the family room.
Full length of family room and dining area.
This little hutch belonged to my husand and his late wife as does the dining room set. Mine is in the garage waiting to be painted...IF it ever gets painted. I am beginning to love this little set. It has history for Howards family just as mine does for my family. I have to wonder how it will all turn out. Mine...or his. :) I don't want to part with either really.
An old sofa table. One of my favorite pieces of furniture.
I love this area of my kitchen...LOVE it. It's a cozy place to wash dishes. I do not have a dish washer. It's just another step in the dance. It's the first time I have not had one and I don't miss it one bit. Nothing to load and unload. :)
My precious 1950's oven! You've seen this before...but what the heck... :)
Looking into the living room. Looks dark but it's just my camera...grrrrr
My FAVORITE appliance. It's the first thing I do in the morning, make coffee with one eye open! Then I turn on my computer...naturally!
My next favorite appliance! LOVE this!
I got the bottom of this from...funny, I cannot remember. I do remember that the top was made by an elderly gentleman that lived in Temecula California. A darling little town south of us. Tons of shops and I remember I had to wait a few weeks for it because the weather was damp and the paint wouldn't dry. I hung it for awhile and later I sat it on this cabinet. I store pet food in the cabinet. Doggie treats and birdie food. :)

I think I'll call it a night.
By the way...that was the best dental visit I have ever had. NO pain at all. I went out like a light and woke up and never a moments pain! None! Hard to believe one could have four teeth pulled and feel this GOOD!
Nity nite y'all. :)
