Today my youngest daughter and I went through some of my china and linens and "redecorated" the dining room. My daughter, Vanessa, loves to decorate, and she is still at the age where she will take my advice, or ASK my advice! And, she doesn't' think she knows everything yet! Could there be a better age??? Well, here are a couple of pictures of our play time~ The teacups are just pretty ones that I've collected, not especially valuable. Most of the plates on the racks are Limoges that my mother collected here and there, and I inherited when we moved her to assisted living.
Now that the downstairs portion of the house is all prettied up, I'm headed back up to my sewing room to get a few things done. I have to finish a jean quilt for my in laws before our mother's day camping trip. I had made it years ago, and put hand prints of all the children and grandchildren on it. In January my sister in law got married again and we not only inherited a brand new (wonderful) brother in law, we got two more nieces. So I needed to pick off one hand print (ex husband) and put on three more. I'll take a picture of that when I am done too! I also want to get the binding on the quilt I made them for their wedding present and give that to them while we are all together at the campground. So those are my sewing goals for this afternoon, and I better get a move on since it's 4:30 pm already!
