Today, I will be sharing, what I call, Family Vignettes in my Craft Room......
But first, a few Personal Notes.....
After being informed that he would be required to now work weekends and evenings, Joe felt it was time to part ways with Wegman's...
Having had only every 6th weekend OFF as a letter carrier for the US Postal Service, Joe does not want to work any weekends or evenings in his retirement...
Joe did thoroughly enjoy working there especially in The Cafe but that was before this health crisis started.....
Now things are very different and who knows if it will ever go back to the way it was so Joe looked at it as an opportunity to take some time off for himself....
They say when one door closes, another opens...
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason......
Hopefully, we will not kill each other in the interim though.....
I was finally able to take advantage of the break in the horrific heat and humidity here and get up the attic to get down the tubs to pack away my Patriotic decorations from the Living Room......
Today, I packed them all away and I am now ready to decorate the Living Room in my "Under the Sea " late Summer theme.....
I am really excited to be decorating this Tree for the first time in that theme.....
This shows the tale of 2 flowers......
The New Guinea Impatiens on the left is thriving while something is eating these petunias on the right.....
I am so mad about that!!!
I am spraying them with insect spray but I have no idea if they will come back or even if it will help!!
In a previous post, I shared how I decorated the Tree in my Craft Room for Summer in a Tea Party theme......
HERE if you missed that post.....
I have to have my "Pretties" around me when I am being creative and crafting in my Craft Room....
My Craft Room was my son Joey's bedroom and when I turned it into a Craft Room, I decorated it in a sage green and pink color theme.....
I kept up all the shelves that once were used for my son's electronics, books, DVD's, etc.....
These shelves were above where the bed used to be.......
This is what it looked like a few years back.....
Above the shelf unit is a mirrored window pane.......
In front of the lamp is a glass plaque that my sons gifted me for Mother's Day many years ago.....
For You, Mother
A Mother is
her family's strength
a source of hope and light
The one her family looks up to
Because she makes
A mother is a helper
With a willing hand to lend,
She's more than just
She's a very special friend
With our Love
And GratitudeThis is a Wedding picture of my Paternal Grandparents....
Without the lights on.......
So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!
Stay safe, healthy and most of all, HAPPY!!
Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
