To market, to market to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again jiggety jig.

Hanging it up...
Mom came over the other night and we started hanging some of the pictures. Great! They are on the wall, and one more thing off the floor! I'm always happy to have Mom help me do this...she is the master at hanging artwork.
This little chain of birds was hanging out in a Kankakee resale shop and it had to come home with me.
The quilt is by local artist, JoanE Lipinski. It depicts pond life, and as you know I have a thing for anything to do with the water. Joe gave it to me for my birthday years ago, and I love it. The other piece is one we bought while we were in Hawaii. I'll have to take close-ups of both of these, so you can see them better. They are really beautiful. And I was pleased that they didn't clash with the curtains, because we chose the curtains based on the rug, not the artwork.
A couple more found homes on the stairway. The one on the right is below...
I got it an an auction for a couple of dollars and I've always liked it. The embroidered figures are cute and I love the little poem. I had it hanging inside our back door, by basement steps, at the other house for a while, but there wasn't a great place for it....now I have it right inside the front door as you go upstairs.
Painting, journaling, antiquing, and working on fixing up my little craftsman bungalow. My kids are grown, and I'm starting to get used to (and love) being mom to grown-ups! Each day is a gift, and a new chance to live well.
