A Little Corner of Her Own

 Here we are, the end of January, and Mom's room has been complete and carpeted for a few weeks now.  Below, is the sign I found at a local Thrift Shop to hang on her door....!   Click on the photos to enlarge.....
I thought it was PERFECT!  Adds a little rustic flair too, don't you think??  And lookie here -
She's been sleeping in the dining room since she first arrived, and has graciously put up with it while Mr. Wonderful was working on the addition.  The night before the carpet installers arrived, we moved her YET AGAIN - into the UN-FINISHED new living room - and you can see the HOOP she had to jump through in the background of this photo of her temporary 'digs'....
When the carpet arrived, we moved the furniture out of the office area and watched the guys get to work laying padding...
and then carpeting in the office area and her new bedroom....
And - CHEERS to Mr. Wonderful - her room is finished, and the hard work of arranging furniture and pictures is before us now...
 ...and she's only just begun! 
Mr. Wonderful is off and running in another direction now that Mom's little space is completed.  The new living room is well started, and we are using it now as is, with insulation hanging, extension cords plugged in, and the wood ceiling has been installed with the help of my brother who flew in from Colorado a couple weeks ago.  My next post will be his visit, and photos of the beginning of the second new room.  Stay Tuned!
Signed,
the ChickenWrangler

Well done to you all, and the hoop, I'm so sure your Mum is glad there are no more jumps to be done. Lovely bed quilt, and curtains, suit it so well, now the next room is on the go. Cheers from Jean

Her room is wonderful - almost as wonderful as Mr. Wonderful. He did a fantastic job and I bet your mom is thrilled.

Your mom is as cute as a bug! The room turned out great, can't wait to see it completely done up and then on to your new living room!

That is really a nice room and Mr. Wonderful did an awesome job! I'm sure that your Mom is very happy to have such a nice place to call her own now. She reminds me of a very sweet friend of my mom's.

Good luck on the rest of the renovations! Thanks for sharing! By the way, I really thought that I was following this blog, but apparently not and when I went to sign in this time, it signed in with my YouTube from Google, so my avatar is different... Just wanted you to know in case you wonder who I am! :)

Her new room looks great! I loved the wood floor that you put carpet over. I'm sure the carpet will make it warmer though. I also think your mom looks younger. I remember seeing a picture of her from a few years back and she looks younger now. I think it is because she is living with you and having fun.

Hello;
Just found your blog; I noticed you're from Michigan, I am too. I grew up in the Armada/Romeo area. I like your little sign you found at the thrift store, I hope to visit my local thrift store today when I go into town; hopefully I'll find a good deal.
Have a great day!
