And on the way down the stairs I have a quilt displayed that has all the reminant fabrics that my mother kept from her childhood. There are old pieces of my aunts dresses, my mom' clothes, and some of the fabric my mom used to make us clothes when I was young. The blue and red patch used to be one of the shirts I used to wear! My mom made the design years ago, and had some of my Amish friends quilt it for her last year. She asked me if I wanted it now knowing that I had the intention of haning a quilt in the hallway one day. How nice that it has my OWN history involved in it. I found the hanging quilt/plate rack at a Goodwill for only $4.00 and it was a excellent fit for the space.
I removed the broken radiators, added the furniture, and just awhile ago, added the wooden curtain rods and curtains. I bought discount curtain rods and finials from the ReStore for an outrageously low price. In fact, I only spent only $100.00 for rods/brackets/finials for the WHOLE house! And I got brown curtains from IKEA.
