In order to relieve the pressure of showing another picture of my house, I’ve decided to show you some from my mother-in-law’s! Tricky, eh? We recently had a family Christmas party there, and these pictures were actually some that she had on her camera. Her really expensive camera, might I add, that has yet to take a clear picture. Go figure.
While my mother-in-law and I decorate very differently, we can appreciate each other’s tastes. She tends to like cooler contemporary colors–blues, grays, blacks…while I’m all about the earth tones.
I prefer things extremely simple. Too much “stuff” around the house stresses me out. She, however, likes to have lots of collections of things around. She definitely likes to be surrounded by pictures–especially of her grandkids. Too bad for the tables. I’ll have to take one another time that shows off the room better.
Her dining room is quite lovely, but the picture of the vinyl table cloth and my niece doing the high karate kick just don’t do it justice. Again…mental note to take another picture of this someday.
That was just a preview. She’s got lots more that I can show–and will show–after the holidays. Until then, I’ll leave you with my little one. She fell asleep in Grandma and Grandpa’s bed with her new doll clothes on her doll. Stops me in my tracks, that one…
