Here are more pictures of the interior:
Above is a photo of the "stuff" on and above the piano--an oil painting my mother did, stitchery I did, the first cross-stitch I designed, and various antique plates, cups, etc. that I've collected. I love the way dust does not show in these photos! In the winter I usually turn the bookcase on the left toward the entryway into the living room. I've been stalling on getting that done--because I hate to unload all those books and then reload them--and am fortunate that we have not had the days upon days of below zero night-time temperatures that have been common in many other years.
And in the kitchen, these are the dishes that I found a few years ago at a thrift shop. Very lucky timing, very good price, and a very "partial" set--I treasure them and admit to using them only for special occasions; we used them at Christmas and New Year's day.Lastly, the following picture shows a quilt I made years ago and planned to put on the wall as soon as I moved into this house. It took over six years to actually get it on the wall, but now it's there for me to look at whenever I sit down to knit or watch television.
I am such very, very imperfect housekeeper!!!
