We are here in Yarrow for Thanksgiving at my sister’s/mom’s farm. And I have a few pics from my mom’s carriage house to show you. My mom has a lot of hand painted rocks by one of her best friends. This one is at the front door.
September 30 was the day my mom moved from the little tiny house I grew up in since I was 12 years old. It was purchased by the City of Abbotsford and it will be torn down because they are eventually going to build a road right through the property.
My mom is a pack rat (love you mom) and when I heard that she had taken the door to her massage room (she is a massage therapist) with her from the old house that is when I started to worry. We had wallpapered it with this great waterfall mural years ago. Here it is propped up beside William’s pumpkins in the greenhouse.
I told Irene about it and she volunteered to come help my mom unpack and get organized since one of my Design Associate’s many talents is that she is extremely organized. I could not have done it without her. My mother has a lot of stuff.
This is the windowsill in her new kitchen. I cannot get her to stop nursing plants back to health and having a row of them at her window. Sigh.
These are my mom’s seven dwarfs. She painted them herself many years ago and loves them. Here they are on her fireplace mantle. My mom likes her stuff covering every surface. The end table (above) will not last long with just a vase with a leaf in it, haha.
This is the little cabinet we found for the corner in her kitchen/sitting area. Yes that is a peek of a La-Z-Boy you can see on the left. When you get to a certain age, comfort is king! There was no talking her out of it, although I tried for about five minutes. I’ll tell you the story to how we arrived at that colour in another post.
This is the vignette I created last Monday and I was surprised that it was still intact when I arrived this weekend. Books don’t forget are all you need to act as a pedestal to make the most innocuous object look interesting. This little basket of crayons is for my nephews when they come over.
That’s the little tour, many of you have been asking how it’s coming along! Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!
