My Mother's Home Sweet Home....Our Home Away from Home

Visits to my mother's home are always a visit to "another land".  She decorates her home seasonally....and oh! to have that luxury!  It has been well earned by her though and did not come easily....working mother of three in the 60's through the 90's, lots of remodeling, and years of collecting all that stuff (okay, your're right....this was probably more fun than work!!).  But I digress....
While her rooms are decorated beautifully, it's the vignettes in their own special nooks and crannies that always catch my eye....and my daughters'.  I can always find one of them standing near her grand piano....staring at vintage pictures of her when she was a child....or gently touching a feather that has been laid near a bird's nest in a bookcase....
And speaking of birds, she definitely has an affinity for our dear feathered friends......


and robin's egg blue....she's always loved that color!  What a treat it is for us to get to stay with her!  It's like visiting a completely different home every time we go....and we love it!
