I've always been a gal who loves simple things... and if they're old, well, that makes them even better.
I'm joining in with Sandy at Reluctant Entertainer (a fabulous place to visit) for her weekly series, "Home is..." Today, it's all about stuff on the walls. Instead of wearing you out by showing you every wall in my humble abode, I'm just showing a few of my favorites... and explaining why.
You're probably wondering, What is that? Well, it hangs in my family room and it is, apparently, a sock holder. My husband's grandmother stitched this and there are actually little pockets where socks could be placed, but it was probably more for "show" than anything else. It's old and I love it.
Also in my family room is this built-in bookshelf. Up top, it holds a visual reminder of what I need to do every day, and those scrapbooks and photo albums? They represent a lifetime with The Man and my wonderful daughter and family. There are 29 albums. I didn't plan it, but that's one for every year we've been married. I'm starting book #30 this week, just in time for our 30th anniversary in August. The family photographs on the lower shelf remind me of what's important.
In the kitchen, there's a coffee theme. I love coffee!
My guest bedroom is my "old" room. On this particular wall are five generations. One of these days, I will post about my ancestors shown here. Fascinating history. (The couple in the oval frame ... that's my mom and dad.)
In my book, a home is not a home without stuff on the walls.
