Visiting West Virginia

We came to West Virginia to visit my mom for a few days since school’s out.  I took some pictures around her house – actually inside her house!

Here’s her living room sofa. I helped her pick this out about 15 years ago. The sofa almost still looks brand new! I got her the throw later because I thought the colors would look nice together.

She dried the flowers I got her for her birthday in March and put them in this cute hat bowl on her coffee table.

This picture was painted by a friend who gave it to my mom. The scene is from a state park in West Virginia. The friend painted at least three more of these, but always liked this one the best when she compared them. So did we! I remember she said she put a little brown in every color she used (in this version). At that time, the living room had a lot of shades of brown.

The dining area is off the living room and beside the kitchen:

Some of my mom's friends wrapped this ivy around the chandelier. I really like how this looks. They also wallpapered the dining room and kitchen.

This painting is titled "Lovers Yet" and was left behind in the first house my parents bought, which was in McKean County, Pennsylvania. I've always liked this picture.

Sorry about the blur.  I didn’t realize how blurry that picture was until I looked just now!

I like this window treatment that's in my old room. This change was made a long time after I left home!

My aunt made this quilt for my mom for her birthday. My mom’s favorite color is blue so she has this on her bed.

The weather is so hot here in West Virginia – the low 90s!  Too hot for me!  I’ll be glad to get back home on Monday.
