My Mom's Visit

I can't believe my mom has been here almost a week already.  She heads for home on Saturday.
We had family fun on Sunday, and she and Bill relaxed Monday while I went to work. On Tuesday, Katie, Mandy and Bill joined my mom and I for a drive to Frederick, MD. We visited an antique mall and a couple thrift stores, and had a great lunch at Brewer's Alley.  Yesterday was a Scrabble day...and lunch at Costco. Sure can't beat $1.59 for lunch!!

This is the room she stays in...and this is also where I put one of those $20.00 quilts I shared with you.  The colors are absolutely perfect in here!!  I love this's so cheerful!

One of my favorite displays in this room is hanging on the wall.
Six little statues all in a row.  We added the six statue about a month ago. I love this little display!!

Jacqi made the cute little coaster for me.  It's the perfect spot for a bedside drink.

Mandy arranged the flowers for her gramma.

It's nice to have a guest in the guest room....especially when it's my mother.
Hope Saturday doesn't come too quickly!!

it sounds like you are enjoying your moms visit so far. A $1.59 lunch would make me happy.

Your guest room is the cheeriest, most welcoming place....I'm sure your Mom feels very happy in this room. It's always hard to squeeze a year's worth of visiting into one week.
Every time we get a chance to peek at things in your home I see something familiar. The little pink sugar bowl, I think, is Hazel Atlas, and was my childhood play dish set. I love to see things from my childhood...a sure sign that I'm getting older!
Hope you're surviving this weather...I really don't like it anymore at all!!

The room is darling. I love the colors and the cheerful accents. So nice to hear about your mom's visit. I'm sure you miss her already.
