pictures for a certain Michigan farmer

I've been meaning to share pictures of my new digs, honest I have.  But we've been so busy moving two households, I haven't even gotten to hang my goodies on the walls.  If you see something in these pictures that's hanging on a wall, it's because there was already a nail there.  We've decided the bachelor who originally owned the place was very tall, because most of his nails are much too high.

I did put up my wall  hanging, but it's even crooked.  It's been so hectic around here, I feel a bit crooked myself.

Now, most women would make the bed or clear off the couch before taking pictures.  But you see, we're taking the granddaughters on a road trip to celebrate our anniversary.  So there are groceries we're taking along on the table, and suitcases and such on the couch.  Believe it or not, I almost always make my bed.  Not today.

Oh, and I'd already taken most of the pictures before I realized I had the camera on "nighttime" setting.

Oh well.

Your new digs are beautiful!  I love your quilts and wonder did you quilt them?

Great pictures. I love your new home, especially the bedroom with that lavender color in it. Have a nice vacation. Helen

Love your two lavender quilts.  Interesting how the one by your Mom almost adds a tall headboard to your bed.  A neat way to display it.  Just curious.  Why would the quilt go to one of your sister's grandsons instead of to your daughter? LaVern

Oh, it's all so clean, neat and beautiful.  There are so many things I'd like to comment on but there's no room here.  In the picture "my unmade bed" I love the table beside your bed.  There is something just left of that table that I can't make out what it is.  Nosy Me.  I also love the way you have the furniture arranged.  It makes me want to throw everything out of this house and start over.  I'm so happy for you to have such a peaceful home.
