A "before" photo during the sorting process
Thank goodness I sold that monstrous couch!
What a mess!
Oh my goodness!
You've got to be kidding me!
~~Finally some organization~~
A hand-painted table holds whimsy and vintage memorabilia
Most of the stuff on the wall came from yard sales or estate sales
The lamp is very old and came with us from Illinois when we moved to Phoenix
The photo shows my mom (standing) when she was a Godmother for Confirmation
This hand-painted armoire (estate sale) holds photo albums, 8mm films, a projector and many other things that I saved for my family. Some of the 8 mm films go back to when I was in 8th grade and a cheerleader! My 8th grade graduation, 16th birthday, high school graduation, and first love are all captured on these films. What memories and a few tears!!!!
The cherished Christening gown worn by my mom, me, my daughter and grandchildren also hangs with my baby shoes and my daughter's shoes.
You can see a photo of me standing by my childhood dollhouse. The dollhouse in the photo is not my original dollhouse...I bought it on ebay because it is just like the one I had as a child. The furniture is from a dear friend, Meri, who also shares a love of whimsy and vintage.
Some of my dolls. Too bad I can't take a decent picture!
Here are more dolls with an explanation from a previous post
I finally took some of my dolls out of storage and displayed them in my mom's room
My mother made the dresses and the hats for the two dolls on the headboard
This was drawn by my cousin and put on my parent's 50th anniversary invitationI may still have a few more revisions to the room, but you get an idea of the transformation.
