~Guest Room II~

I find working around our home is wonderful for stress relief. J works in the yard/gardens and cleans the vehicles to occupy his time and thoughts. Today, we continued with our spring cleaning and redoing, by working on the second guest room.

We began the rearrangement by taking the bed apart and moving it to an end wall. It has been between two windows since we moved here, 4 years ago. We both wonder how many more years we will be able to move furniture here and there!

The furniture in this room was in the master bedroom of our former home, at the farm.

The white jar on the chest holds Peacock and Pheasant feathers. The bench at the end of the bed was moved to this room from the foyer. I'll post a little update of the foyer one day soon. The rug was moved from the studio. It's something a little different and perhaps fun, for this room.

I've looked for a barrel shade for Jim's mother's rose lamp for awhile. On our way from meeting with J's surgeon, Monday, we stopped at the mall in Chesterfield, where I found this shade at Pottery Barn.
I wasn't sure the green would work, but decided to take a chance. It works wonderfully and it was marked 50% off!
J's mother was an avid garage/yard sale shopper. She also enjoyed auctions. I think she found this lamp and the two smaller rose lamps, we have, at one sale or another. We believe the lamps are from the 1950's.

Looking toward one of the vanity areas in the Jack and Jill bath. The other vanity area is entered by way of the hall.


A date has been scheduled for J's surgery, next month. I've booked a hotel near the hospital and we've arranged for Molly's boarding. J has an appointment with our Cardiologist in a couple of weeks. We hope to get to the lake once or twice before the surgery. We're doing our homework for the surgery and we are keeping busy.

You have our continued appreciation for your thoughts and prayers as we approach J's hospitalization and after he returns home.
