The Rest of the Tour!!

These are my favorite pictures of my Mom's house, this is a sweet little window she has in her hallway.
I love this pink dresser she has on the landing of her stairway. Guess you know where I get my love of pink from!

A cute little place to hang winter scarves and jackets. Notice the roses on the mirror, I almost stuck this in my suitcase to bring home, but it wouldn't fit (;

See the Screen door here and the old windows, this is actually a bathroom, what a neat idea, don't ya think. (See the lace she has on the inside of the screen door, so pretty.

This is her bedroom, the fireplace was made by my husband Jeff. I slept like a baby in here it's so cozy.

Look at the closet doors, they are made from a screen by Rachel Ashwell, Target, I bought it and my Mom loved it so much I gave it to her, she had it made into her closet doors. Such a good job Mommy. She has a special touch with things, she can just throw things together so easily and it has a way of always looking so pretty.

Her cute little fireplace again, couldn't ya just curl up with a good book here.

And last but diffently not least, her new baby, well claw foot tub. I am so jealous!!LOL. I helped her put this room together while I was visiting, we picked out a chandelier and put it up and then hung her shelf and added all her girly accessories! We also put the old window up above the shelf and hung some lace over it. I love the way it turned out. Happy soaking Mom!! Thanks for all the sweet, loving and beautiful memories. I love you!!!!!!! I hope you all enjoyed the tour. I would also like to add that even though my Dad doesn't get any credit for the decorating he is our best tour guide and always finds new adventures for us, the three of us have always gone on road trips ever since I was a little girl and we still enjoy our time riding to no where and somehow always find amazing places that we never knew we were looking for and all the while my Mom and I telling him how to drive, I really don't know how he drives that car without us in it, LOL. Poor guy.

Hi Kelly,
Your parents place is so beautful! I just love it! It has such a warm homey feeling to it. I love the master bedroom and bathroom. That screen door is the perfect touch. The bathtub is adorable! Is it smaller than normal or does it just look like that in the pictures? All your decorating touches were wonderful too.

What a sweet combo- log cabin look with shabby chic, romantic. I love it. It seems like many time cabins have the cabin look inside also- this is such a nice surprise!

We can see where you get your decorating talent from!!!

blessings to you!

I love that little house. So cozy, warm and welcoming! Such wonderful touches and the bathtub is fabulous. I could soak in there for hours, til I looked like a prune! lOL! Thank you so much for sharing a bit of your mom with us. I lo st my mom 11 years ago this past Friday. It always warms me to "see" a mom and daughter still enjoying each other and their company. Hug her tight.
