Dear Grandma ~ A Tribute to Mom with Flowers

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday and

Happy Monday Morning Blooms Day!

It’s a  most beautiful Monday, when I and

my wonderful flower loving friends,

Lidy, Mary and Pam,

share our love for flowers,

every 1st and 3rd Monday

of the month, hoping to bring some of

that love to you for inspiration.

Today we pay tribute to Mothers.

Mother’s Day can certainly be both

joyous and bittersweet as we celebrate

our Mothers in person or in our hearts.

Today I bring you,

My letter to the Grandmother I never met.

The Hickory Cottage Sunroom Reveal (for now)

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been up to my eyeballs in boxes and

packing paper (still) and trying my best to work

with one room at a time; however, it has

been a bit difficult as there are still

many boxes that need to be unpacked.

I worked on the sunroom.

You could not see the floor as it was truly

covered with furniture, boxes, and orphaned

accessories. However, I got through it!

Bunnies, Jelly Beans, and Easter Joy

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday!

It’s been a while

and so many things have happened

in these past two weeks.

We are all moved in the Hickory Cottage

and it was truly a difficult move due to

COVID-19. We could only get professional movers

for 4 hours and there were no professional

house cleaners available either.

So with the help of some friends, who are

truly angels, we got the move done in 5 days!

On a brighter note, today is

Monday Morning Blooms and you will see

Bunnies, Jelly Beans and Easter Joy!

and exhibiting compassion

and acts of kindness to others.

Hello Dear Readers!

I have a bit of an update for you.

I wish I had updates of the

exterior of the house; however,

that we have not been able

to pour any concrete for the driveway;

thus also not being able

to get started on the landscaping.

So today I shall show you the

Master Bedroom and Closet Hickory Cottage Update

Hello Dear Readers!

As I stated in my last post,

I have a little Master Bedroom and Closet

Hickory Cottage Update for you.

This week, there is not a lot happening

at the cottage EXCEPT for the floors

The floors are being sanded and stained.

We were told that it would take a little

over a week to complete as the entire first floor

is all wood. No carpet in the house,

except for my hubby’s office and exercise room

which is the bonus room above the garage.

So I hope to bring you the finished floors soon.
