Glimpses of Home


Here are a few corners of my home that you might not have seen before.

The coffee area:


This picture was taken at night. My hubby puts out the cups the night before so they are ready the next morning.


This is the hallway.  I haven't decorated it yet because its still a work in progress.  One of these days I will make it my project!  Right now its kind of a catch all for things that have no where else to go.


Those Thanksgiving/Christmas/Easter Cacti are at it again!  They bloom in Fall, Winter and Spring, it seems.


Here are a few plants in the sewing room window.

 
I rooted a leaf from Mama's purple African Violet and its growing pretty well:


I stuck a couple pieces of my old Jade plant in this pot last summer and it took off growing.  Its way more healthy than its parent plant!



I finished this quilt, finally, over the weekend.  I just need to get a white bed skirt and either buy or make some coordinating pillows.  This room is a work in progress too.
 
 
We are still experiencing below normal Spring temperatures and the wind is relentless! But, as I recall, Easter in North Carolina is almost always cold. I can't remember an Easter Sunday when we didn't need a sweater or coat over our Easter finery! I just have to keep remembering the 90 and 100 degree temperatures that are almost surely going to arrive in about 3 months and try to enjoy the coolness while we can.

What a lovely post, Debbie. I love the flowers, and I have been anxious to see this finished quilt. You are an accomplished lady.

Yes. I, too, remember needing a sweater on Easter morn!
