Just how

did it get to be Friday already?
I don't know.
In honor of Mother's Day (week)
I thought I'd show you pictures
of my
Mother's Little Cottage.

We've been decorating

together now for 30 years.

We have similar tastes

as you can see.


I just love her couch and loveseat-
way too big for my house but perfect for hers.
We found the couch in a little country furniture store
and she had the matching loveseat given to her.



This collage shows
just part of her collection
of rose pretties.


I drag her along on all of my escapades.

She's a really good sport about it, too.

Her house looks like it should be in a magazine!
Love it all.

Nice you have your Mom to run around with.
My folks decided not to come up this summer, and they are my garage sale buddies.
I sure do miss them.

hugs and blessings,

Oh my gracious sakes alive. Your mother should open her home as a B&B. That way, we'd come visit and I could ooh and aah over all the details and comfyness and fru fru delights. Beautiful!

Looks like a place I could move right into. How special that the two of you have the same decorating tastes. I really do like the outside and the inside of this adorable little house. Oh, yes I ask myself the same question you did...how did it get to be Friday already?? Life seems to go so fast.

Rene' thank you so much for your kindness, I'm sorry that you have felt this loss also, we have an amazing Father and it brings so much comfort in knowing that they are engulfed in His love and we will be with them again for eternity.
