Let me take you upstairs……


Lets go up stairs :)

My husband built these stairs.


I found this dresser a few years ago. It was a mess. The top was a veneer and it had very little going for it, but I loved it and after some sanding, and painting it became very special to me. Now I am looking for a bench or chair to go with it.DSCN3038

This old cabinet was in my office downstairs. I had all kinds of stuff in it. But it works so well in my room. Soon this wall will have a long bookshelf, that will be great because all our books are in plastic containers. This was made by a friend in our church many years ago. I bought it at the estate sale…love it!DSCN3039

This is the original chimney that comes up through the house to the rough. It was from the kitchen wood cooking stove in the kitchen. 1906. I wanted to keep it and I am so glad that we did. And now it is where I am hanging some old family pictures. This picture is of Arney’s grandparents…the Neely’s…Willy Lee and Jessie.

Hi Mary . . . Your bedroom is wonderful. I love that you kept the chimney and the way that you are using it to hang family photos is very cool.

I always get excited when I make a new friend. I am looking very forward to following your blog and getting to know you better through blogging.
Have a marvelous day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Thanks for letting us come upstairs to see your bedroom. IT looks like a comfy spot. The old photos look great on the brick chimney.

Poor Finley looks so cold out there in the snow. I had to look real close to see him!

Very well done. Your upstairs room is wonderful. My cat won't even go outside left alone walk on the snow.
