Tiny Steps

It only took 4 months (and the fact that our newly crawling and standing granddaughter is visiting in 2 weeks) to take more action to get art work off the floor and into storage or hung up. 3 small pieces went up today and one more will soon. We also hung the broom holder in the garage. Not much action but it is some. Now preparing for workers to be here Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning to do mostly invisible repairs. More on that when they finish.

This is our guest room which will get used for the first time this coming weekend by our older son and DIL and the following weekend by our other son, DIL and granddaughter. The dark collage on the left was a wedding present to my parents and is made of shells and dried flowers. The center drawing was done by a great-uncle and shows his sister, my maternal grandmother and namesake, in her youthful glory. She died when my Mom was just 5 or 6 so I never knew her. The 3rd is just a random picture that we had and enjoy.

The room certainly needs some more color but we are waiting until we have used everything we already own that will fit in before we buy new decorative items.

    1. Made the change and yes, it is lovely to be closer to our kids. The whole reason for this move and upheaval was to return to being physically closer to family and it is great.

  2. Even a couple of throw pillows can add a cheap pop of color. And maybe while your family visits, snap some photo and frame them to hang in the guest room. Enjoy your time with that grandbaby, your sons and daughters-in-law.

    1. So true about pillows and such. This room has been next to last on the list but we are getting around to the lower priority things now.
