It's Blue and Met Monday time again! Go over at Sally's blog at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ and Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ and check out who all is participating in these 2 fun events and take a look at all their blue treasures and all the transformations going on.
For my blue contribution, I would like to share the Lladro figurine that we just bought on recent Grand Cayman trip. Her name is Karina and she is quite tall at 17 inches. Do you see the Lladro sign above? They don't sell them but they have them in stores so I told the sales clerk that we will buy the figurine if she gave me the sign for free. And she said "Deal"!! LOL!.
I took out the fairy lamp so you can see her whole skirt. Isn't she a cutie? I love the jar she is carrying too!
Thank you Sally, for all the efforts you take in hosting this event.
If you have been following my blog, you must have seen me post this guest room before. We have designated this room for my soon to be 91 year old mom, who
rotates among us 5 brothers and sisters in 4 states. Right now, she is in FL and next month, she will be in Illinois.
Anyway, since I had to make room for the antique French armoire that dh bought for me, I had to move the plaid chair and ottoman that was in our bedroom. Now, you see that this room already has a leather chair and ottoman. I moved it into the other guest bedroom. This is how it used to be.
But the other guest room already had a matching chair and ottoman too, as our bedroom's, so I moved that in my mom's bedroom too.
This is how it looks like now, with the 2 plaid chairs. I placed the 2 ottomans on either side of the chairs. I also replaced the curtains and the beddings. They're not new, I just got them from the linen closet. Here is another view of the before
and the after.
I also moved my sewing machine from the laundry room into here because we bought a small freezer, which I placed in the laundry room. It is a little more crowded than it used to be but I think the room can accomodate everything I moved in here. I figured I can even watch TV here with my mom now with the 2 chairs. You don't see the TV but it's in the corner, across the chairs.
