I have said many, many times, if there was one thing in this life I would do over without a doubt, it is have my babies.  I never thought I would have seven children..and there were times when I would think another one was on the way...
OH NO! We can't afford it... but of course when we found out it was true...we were always, always just elated!  Every single one was over 7 pounds.  Not a single case of colic.  They were my happiness...and they still are.
They always will be.
(My darling Sandy, my first daughter, I miss you and I remember every moment of your babyhood, your growing years, your teen years, your wedding and when you became a mother and then a grandmother.  I was and am..SO proud of you.)   
All of my daughters were wonderful mothers.  I am so proud of them!    
So..this is our guest room.  When company is expected..I gather up a few of the little extra's like Abby, the teddy bear and put away most of the pillows...
 ..put out linens and a new bar of soap..

 A new box of tissues.. 

 No guitar, of course and the suitcase gets stored away to make room for their own..
('s full of my tiny glass Christmas ornaments.)  
The rose strewn curtains were brought over from Ireland as a gift from my daughter in law, Cindie, and Mikie, my second eldest son. 
(Gonna pitch those vertical blinds one of these days!  The entire house has them and they are miserable things!)  
 No chocolates..  :)  Not a bad idea to add a few in a little glass dish on the night stand.  Yes?

See the little doilies over the shades..makes it very cozy but take it off and it's a good reading light.

 There is a ceiling fan of course and plenty of room to hang clothes.
The desk opens for a computer and the WiFi is up and ready to go right next to the desk.  

I found this lovely Armour at a an antique mall across from the Mission Inn here in our city.
It has raised roses carved in wood on the front.  
It really is a sweet little room..
As you can see, I also put extra things in here when it is not being used..but it is always neat and ready...
Nothing terribly special..but it's a comfy little room.
Have a wonderful Sunday.  

My love to you... :)
