~♥Laundry Room Update ♥~

This is how my laundry tub has looked for almost five years...I felt it was time for a change!
This is how the laundry tub looks without being covered...not very pretty and I'm all about making something look pretty.
And this is how it looks after...I purchased new curtains from the Better Homes and Gardens collection at Wal-mart and used a tier to cover my laundry tub.
I bought these rods (I only needed one) ...
attached it with removable velcro.
These are my new valances (sorry the picture is so dark).
Here are a few more pictures of the laundry room.

I want my washer to look pretty when it's not in use.
Hmmm...just realized the scarf is wrinkled...sorry about that!

This is a picture of my great grandma doing laundry...she's on the right.
It really makes me appreciate my washer and dryer.

Thank you so much for stopping by blogging friends...I always enjoy your company!


p.s.  Thank you all for your wonderful and sweet comments that you left on my previous post about my screen door update!

~♥ My Screen Door ♥~

I old wooden screen doors.  This door has been on our home since 1963 when my In-Laws lived in this house.  My door recently got a makeover....there was no way I would ever part with this door because it's seen too many people come and go in it's 47 years in existance.
My dear Hubby and I went to Lowe's and found wooden accent pieces.  He graciously accepted the duty of painting them and attaching them to the door.
Here's an up close and personal look...isn't she pretty?

Thanks for stopping by, dear friends!
Thank you all for the kinds words you left on my last post,
"My Daughter's Prom."  She had a wonderful time with her boyfriend and friends!

~♥ My Daughter's Prom ♥~

Hello blogging friends...first of all, thank you so much for the congratulatory wishes for my daughter on getting her license...how very kind of all of you!  We appreciate it from the bottom of our heart!
I wanted to share some pictures of my sweet daughter again.  Her prom was held on Friday, May 14th.  While the weather wasn't the greatest, we did manage to get some pictures before it hailed!  They were also able to get to their destination without any weather problems as well.

Emily and Anthony...her boyfriend of one year.  He is a senior this year and she is a junior.
They met last year in biology class...sat across from each other.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Dear Daughter, Emily, is now a licensed driver.  She passed her driver's test on Saturday, so it was a great Mother's Day present.  This Friday is her first prom. 
My oh my how time flies!

~♥ For My Mom ♥~

"The Watcher"
by Margaret Widdemer
She always leaned to watch for us,
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.

And though we mocked her tenderly,
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe
Because she waited there.

Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget!
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.

Waiting till we come home to her,
Anxious if we are late,
Watching from Heaven’s window,
Leaning on Heaven’s gate.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom...
It's been 20 years since you went home to be with the Lord
and there's not a day that goes by that I do not miss you.
