And I'm excited because my mom is coming to visit us on Monday.
Two years ago was her last visit (I miss my family so much) and I'm so happy that her health allowed her to come this year for Halloween. She loves to come and see the kids have fun on Halloween night. It is something truly American and the imitations in Germany don't do it justice.
My mom had an aneurysm in her head which was the reason for her not being able to come. It was a very scary time and after having it coiled in the hospital I pray that she is able to move on now.
On a lighter note, I wanted to continue with my house tour.
Today I have some photos of our (work in progress) living room. I'm still trying to improve my photography and the lighting isn't what I would like it to be in every picture. I'm really trying to get better at this.
|I do miss our old fussy wool area rug that I moved to the attic for a while, |
but this indoor/outdoor rug is so much easier to clean.
|You can see a post about my desk project here and my curtains here.|
|This old treasure was my grandmother's engagement present from my grandfather in 1930. |
I think it is such a beautiful piece.
|This Ikea Expedit book case houses some kids toys, kids books and some of my books and magazines. It's not beautifully staged because it is a very functional shelve and gets used a lot. |
I don't want the kids to feel like they can't touch it.

|And I LOVE orchids. I can't get enough of them. Click here if you want to see my silhouette projects.|
I wish you all a great weekend.
Talk to you on Monday.
