Ready For Guests


Next Wednesday my Sister arrives from Canada. 

The guest room is ready!

It's been nearly 3 years since Sue was here with us in Kansas
but this will be her first visit since we've moved to the farm. 

The last time she was here we lived in the big old Victorian
in town....now we're here in the country
in our tiny cozy farm cottage. 

I'm excited to see her
and the wonderful friends who are dropping her off
while they continue on to Tulsa Oklahoma.

She'll be here for two weeks...
lots of time to yack...shop...explore...did I mention yack?

;-)



See this pretty quilt?

One of my favorite Bloggers gave it to me!

She said she thought of me when she saw it...
how cool is that.

Thank you my friend...I LOVE it!


It's perfect.


The pattern and colors are gorgeous.


I have a fluffy Canadian goose down comforter 
that I put at the foot of her bed
although I doubt she'll get
cold as she can see the wood stove
from her bed.


I LOVE that floral pattern and I love the lilac color.


The little black dress...pinafore apron and hat
and hanger was made by Amish
not far from us.







Sweet Dreams Sis...
we'll see you soon!

Are you having company over the holidays?

Hi Maura,

Prudence is still sleeping so I get to use her "puter".

What a wonderful, charming, inviting room for your sister. The quilt was made for that room. What a wonderful gift from your Blog friend.

Have a wonderful visit and wishing you both lots of giggle time.

Hugs, Happy Weekend.

P.S.
Love your music selection.

Such an inviting room. She will feel very welcomed. There's nothing finer than a big, comfy duvet at the end of the bed.

I might just have to come stay in that beautiful guest room some time!!! I loved staying in Amy's Verde Cottage this weekend. And, yes, I told her hello from you. We decided that we need to have a farmgal blogger get-together sometime. I offered my farm. Wouldn't that be a blast??? To quote Amy on the subject of all of us bloggers..."These are my people." And to quote me...."We are all of the same tribe!"
