Interior Designer I am Not

I am NOT an interior designer. In fact, I do not have an interior designer bone in my body. I am not one of those people who just automatically knows what would look nice in any given room in a house. Oh how I wish I did! I know what I like when I see it. I just don't know what to do or how to get there. I get intimidated at the very thought of hanging pictures on the walls. But today I conquered my fears! I hung up several pictures and even a mirror. SHOCKER!!

This was quite an "ugly" little nook in my home. Very practical mind you, but ugly. I think it looks much better now with a few pics!
I love these old antique pictures of the girls. And the quilt my sister in law made me when I got married is nice touch too if I don't say so myself!
A couple Christmas's ago we visited my Grandmother down in southern Az. We spent one day down in Mexico. While we were there we got this funny drawing done of all of us. It's the goofiest looking thing. Rosebud is about the only one that looks like herself in it. But we have the greatest memories and a lot of laughs every time we look at it.
Funky mirror. Don't know if there are any "rules" about how to place mirrors, but we all like it!
Well, there ya have it. My attempt at pictures and decorating. Hmmmmmm. What's next?

Not bad! You did great! And what a treasure to look at! Because there are warm memories with those things hanging up the wall. Blessings.

Well, I must say, I am very proud of you! It looks great! Remember, hanging pictures of your children builds their self-esteem and security!! I love that mirror, we had the same one in our bathroom in PT. See you tomorrow! :o)

It was a lot of fun helping you put up the pictures. Well, not all of them. But over all I had a ball! I think you did a wonderful job. I'm so glad your my mom.
