~ PHOTO'S OF HOME FINALLY... and back of silverware~

I was finally able to get a clear picture of the back of the silverware. I used the serving spoon and worked with my camera. I am finding my camera's flaws are not it's flaw's but my own. I need to learn to read directions.
Please enlarge the picture...

Please remember, this is not a big fancy home, nothing elaborate, but it is comfortable and cozy. We love it! Lots left to do, but it is small things such as sinks which are not in good shape at all.
My husband lived here since he was 25. He is now 76 years old! That's a long time
and this was quite a change for him. My style is VERY different than what he was used to.

The color green I used is called Trade Winds by Earth Elements. Velspar's signature colors. Sweet husband LOVED this color! :)

All the trim in the house, including the cabinets and doors and front door is Moonlit Snow. Very clean looking. I did fool around with the idea of doing the ceiling a different color and the trim..but...I didn't want to push the envelope!

The carpet is Grand Teton Green Clover. I thought it went nicely with everything. I favor anything that looks like soft moss. And it is SOFT! :)

My little bathroom..

We painted the my bathroom Primrose by Laura Ashley's collection.

I really, really wanted a pink bathroom. It is right off the green bedroom and the colors go so nicely together. I hope you like it as much as I do.
Not a fancy bathroom but it's cozy.

Love and hugs...


  1. Oh Mona it IS beautiful just like you. I love the green and how the soft green and the pink compliment each other. I can't wait to see the rest of the redo. It looks just like I thought it would, perfectly Mona.

    God bless sweetie and have a glorious day!!!

  2. Mona,
    You are so lucky with the silverware!! Just beautiful. I like the green and pink paint. Love those roses on the toilet lid!!!! Love roses!! Thanks for visiting my blog. And your hair is beautiful as well. Antique Rose

  3. Oh yes you hit the jackpot!
    I just repainted my dining room. It was dusty rose for 8 yrs, went to a sage green.
    I hate picking colors.
    Your pink bathroom is very pretty, Mona!

  8. Mona your home is beautiful. It reminds me of a bed and breakfast. What a neat legacy your hubby has there.

  9. Mona, your home is lovely! Especially loved the flowers lining the lid in the ladies room. Beautiful! Your color choices compliment one another perfectly! Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful part of your life with us.

  10. Mona, it all looks very nice! Congrats again on your silver find... WOO HOO!

  11. Now where did you get that rosey toilet seat? How unexpected but WONDERFUL! I love your soft mossy greens. Can't wait to see the other rooms put back together.

    I'm posting about my china set I thought was a great find, until I read about your silverware! Wish were closer, we could do a tandem tablescape!
