Some More Things that I Like

Four years ago we put an addition on our house - a living room. Our former living room is now the dining room. At that time I loved everything Americana and decorated the kitchen, living room, and dining room in an Americana motif. About six months ago, I changed direction. I decided I would keep some Americana but I would decorate with things that I liked - no matter what the style - and I have. I gave most of my Americana to my daughters, keeping just a few things.

I kept this Americana quilt.

I really like this crate.

This jelly cupboard is a favorite of mine. I've had it for years.

And away we go! Austin, Seth, and Tyler are going to the Little Grand Canyon with us. Then we are going to drive to Benezette to see the elk. I'm looking forward to getting away for a few days. I am going to attempt to schedule a post for Bloomin' Tuesday.

Hi! Thanks for stopping in to visit me and leaving a comment. Now I am finding out how very much you and my mother have in common. My dear sister was also murdered and it has been a difficult road to find peace but we have. I hope you too find peace!

I wonder if you have heard the blue willow story and poem? I put in on my blog in the past. I can look the entry up for you if you are interested. It is such a romantic story.

I love your quilt and am a quilter myself.

Hugs ~

I now know that you also visited my daughter Heidi at her blog. She lives in Holland and so, noticed right away your dutch tiles at the top of your page and the tulips.
I also live near Ohio Amish, as you can see on past posts. I think we were mean't to cross paths. Glad you found us.
Have a wonderful time with your family on your trip.

I just have to keep commenting to you. I am NOW, as we speak planning my kitchen to change from mostly Dutch to Americana red, white and blue. Oh my, this is getting spooky.
