 The curtains and slanted ceiling in Mama and Dad’s bedroom. Notice the photograph of Grandma Freda in her high school band uniform. She played the bass drum!
 The old wagon wheel rocker that Mama loves and won’t part with. It used to be part of our livingroom set. There was a couch with cowboy style stitching on the leather back and half wagon wheels on each end to support wide wooden arm rests. The end tables and coffee table had wheels too and plank tops.
 Wildflowers bouquets in oval frames. These are pretty pieces. They are in Mama’s room now hung over her bed.
 Grandma’s laundry room. The walls are yellow. How cheerful.
 I love the basket.
 The old dogwood painting. This is hung at the top of the stairs I like the colors.
 Reading nook at the top of staircase. An old white dresser sits beside it. This is the home of all the family photographs.
 Dried flowers in a metal door hanger . Julie’s room at Grandpa’s house.
 The bed in Julie’s room. The walls are a soft pink and the daybed white metal. Very pretty.

Grandma’s Singer sewing machine. This is an old one, but it still works and is used now and then. Mama always loved to sew. She has produced many a garment!
