I had such a lovely visit with my daughter, her husband and my grandson a couple of weeks ago.
The days sped by with glorious adventures, time well spent savoring precious moments and
before I knew it I was on that plane heading home to the blue skies of Texas.
I have so many tales to share with you, but I am going to begin in a chronological order, so this
post will be focused on Amanda’s and Preston’s Mid-Century Home.
I find their home to be so cozy and welcoming and well, actually familiar because this home was
built the year I was born.
I enjoyed all of the wonderful details that Amanda has taken to showcase the beauty of her
own treasures as well as keep the integrity of the home shining.
She even made this jute lampshade and pillow.
Entry way with antiques and special treasures.
Mid-Century Homes are between the years of 1930-1965, these years reflect the rise of the middle
class as they thrived and became wealthier.
Ornamentation returned, as you can see in these photos-
which include stained glass, decorative wooden arches and brick.
When Amanda and her family moved in their home they made a few updates.
Fresh paint always refreshes and lightens-in this photo they painted the wood paneling in their
dine in kitchen.
Original stained cupboards.
Subway tile which they measured, cut and installed themselves!
New soapstone counter tops and a farmhouse sink (no photos-I got side tracked)
See photo below as to why.
This little guy, my favorite guy in the entire world waiting for a short stack at Mel’s.
A total and complete perfect distraction!
Guest Room, where I slumbered away and awoke to the happy chirps of very pleasant birds.

handsome headboard courtesy of the hubs and Preston.
It was a cherished week in time for this Grammy/Mimi!
