We got some wall decor up this last weekend, and though things are not finished, I thought I'd show you some of my progress. Any suggestions are welcome!

Here are the living rooms walls at this point. The shelf on the right is actually a quilt holder, and will be doing its job as soon as I dig out a quilt for it. My dream is to have at least four quilts made especially for that holder, one for each of the seasons. I'd love to have more than that eventually.
The area rug is a beautiful one that Mama bought for me when they were here in November, from the estate sale of a dear Christian lady we knew in St. Louis who has gone home to Glory.

These next two are of another wall in the living room. It needs some additions, but I'm so thrilled with the job I've done of covering up the thermostat that I have to share them. The nails holding the sandpainting on the shelf need to be replaced with something less conspicuous, don't you think? As you can probably tell, this is going to be a Navajo Wall.

And this is the wall of the fireplace that you see when you're coming down the hall from the Blessings' rooms and the bathroom toward the kitchen/living/dining areas. It's become the Precious Moments gallery. Two of these are my work, one (top right) is that of my beloved sis, Beka.

Your house is exactly as I imagined it. You really shine through and your quilt wall only enhances the down home charm and comfort I'm sure is felt there
