Wednesdays With My Mom

SO CUTE! Out on a bike ride with friends. Magazine worthy. : )
While at Walmart Wednesday to buy a curtain rod, we spotted these nice throw pillows!

If you remember, my mom's favorite color is rust. I'm so glad she didn't say, "I'll think about it", which she so often does these days.
They sure brighten up her living room!
Here's what we needed the curtain rod for. My mom's had these curtains for quite some time. She put beautiful new ones in her living room shortly after moving in, but asked if I would put her old gold curtains to good use in her bedroom. Why not! : )

Her throw pillows match perfectly with her chairs and look GREAT! Perfect use of her curtains to hang then in her bedroom. They look beautiful.

Great pillows for your mom. I really love the pictures you always put up. We have very few old pictures of our parents. I will have to dig some up.

I love the picture of your Mom & Dad on the bicycle-very romantic! Your Mom's apartment is so cute and the two of you have nice taste.
(I forgot to tell you that I took your advice about the paper doll search. There were lots of sets with "Joyce" dolls but I haven't come across the right set yet. My sister (the one who named me) said it was a set with lots of teenaged dolls..boys & girls I'll find it sometime)

You have the best old photographs! They are darling!

Those new pillows look fantastic with your mom's existing decor!

Truly, I think you need to publish your mother's pictures. They are just more than special. They tell the story of an era that we all are nostalgic for. I can't tell you how delightful that you mother hangs on to her love of rust! Isn't it is fun to see a good "old" color still perfectly in fashion today! Wednesday's with Mom - there you go - the title of your book! E

Hi! I am so sorry about the hic cup! The Etsy would not let me pay with my credit card without linking it to my bank account. I have never had that screen come up before. Today I tried it again, and it went right through. Again, all success to you! Elizabeth
