When I am crafting, the whole house becomes “craft central”. But this weekend I am having overnight guests and 25 people for dinner Saturday. I had to hide EVERYTHING and make a room for my grandson and those people he brings with him (my son and daughter-in-law). My plan was to put all of my stuff away in an organized fashion. That lasted until there was no more room or I just couldn’t decide where it should go.
The fabric was stacked in bins or sorted into clear tubs by color.
But then I just shoved it in the closet
and closed the door
Earlier we had moved the bed out and replaced it with a sleeper sofa. The window treatment was adapted from our house in Bridge City.
Bridge City guest room
This Ethan Allen table was in my parent’s bedroom. It broke, so I fixed it and painted it to match the room.
I took the turned piece out of the pedestal and replaced it with a spool that I found at a flea market.
On this flower arrangement, I threaded the twigs through wood spools.
I have a collection of thimbles and also wooden spools.
There are 2 quilted wall hangings. The top one was pieced by my mother and quilted by my grandmother. I made the other one.
This doll was made by my grandmother. The real hair was my mother’s when she was a child. It sits on my grandmother’s treadle sewing machine.
In this room I have 3 paintings of bluebonnets. The top one is an oil painting by my grandmother. The next is an oil by my mother. The bottom was painted in acrylic by my son when he was 8.
I did a watercolor of bluebonnets that hangs over the fireplace.
While my house is all clean, I plan to take lots of pictures so that I can share them on my blog. I am very proud of how I have made this lease house a home for us while we try to rebuild our lives after Hurricane Ike.
