White Curtains, Shabby Chic Hooks, Bracelets and Monday Cleaning!

 My daughter in law sent me home with a couple of large 'Goodie Bags' yesterday!


These hooks will be hanging in my bedroom and bathroom tomorrow!
It's wonderful they are already 'shabby' - just the way I like them!!


Included in one of the bags were two white curtain panels.


I whipped off the thick heavy one I had hanging here and hung the two new ones back to back!


They are perfect!!!


There was even a tie back!


When Louis Dean hangs up my hooks tomorrow I am going to ask him to hang this wire basket as well.


I have it up there on a wire nail and that won't do!


The paper coasters are from a trip Amber and Mike made to Paris.
I have a friend and neighbor who is touring Europe and guess what I asked her to bring back??
Paper coasters! I prefer ones they actually used.


Other treasures from Leigh Ann.
The quads are going to love seeing me wear these!


I LOVE a clean room!!!
I guess Maggie does, too!!


I stayed home all day cleaning and fluffing.
MiMi Camp 2014 will be here soon!!
Sunday evening, actually!!!!
I cleaned the guest room where the three grands will sleep......
at least for a few of the nights next week!


I have started making plans and gathering up materials.
In 2008 I held my first MiMi Camp.
This will be my seventh year to do this!
I am so impressed they still want to come to MiMi Camp now that they are older.
I first started them in order to get to know the grandchildren better.
At first I did three separate weeks so we could pay special individual attention to each one.
Now it is easier to host all three at the same time!
Kids are busy these days and have all  sorts of camps and activities in the summer.

The quads are too young yet to do a MiMi Camp but their time is coming.
Although I guess they may call it 'MEE MAW Camp!!'
It is looking more and more like I am a Mee Maw these days!!


It's nice to put our feet up at the end of the day and bask in the glow of our accomplishments!

Family. So lovely, so very important. You are the BEST Grandma (yes LD is the BEST Grandpa).

Those drinks look good, and so do the propped up feet! Especially knowing how hard you can work. I especially love the little wire basket! Maybe you will show us when it is hung, and what you will put in it.

I know you will have a fun camp I can't wait to hear all about your adventures!

Kathy said...

You are a brave woman taking on all three kids at once. Well, I guess you have had a lot of practice with FOUR kids at once, haven't you. I'm a Memaw (inspite of myself -- I wanted Mom Mom). I guess it really doesn't matter what they call you as long as they love you.

Sandra said...

that was quite a bag of goodies.. what will you hang on the hooks once LD gets them up... looks like you are ready for camp, enjoy and i know you will.

Vee said...

Are you kidding me? Who wouldn't want to visit Mimi camp or MeeMaw camp?! And now that I know what Fabuloso smells like, I can almost smell the clean. Looking good! What is that pretty drink and how does it have those layers?

Linda, I will gripe and whine and grumble at times about having to clean. But boy once it's done I feel so good about it. I really have to get busy tomorrow and Thursday. Not that anyone comes over much...just that if family is in town , they may want to come by and I do not want them thinking...YUCK. ...LOL. You and LD deserve to put your feet up...you hard working people. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I am smack-dab in the middle of MEMAW CAMP...we're on Day 7 and 2 more to go. Such fun..'course, mine are all older and they wait on ME rather than visa versa. lol....such fun....and such a blessing.

Wanda said...

Hi Linda, I see you haven't let the grass grow under your feet....while I was moving...Love the look of your new long curtains, and hooks are great.
We are moved in....today the TV, computer, and phone are in and running! Nice to be back in the cyber world.

Carla said...

I want to come to Mimi Camp. LOL Who wouldn't want to come to your Mimi camp with the fun you plan.

Those curtains are lovely! It's like you've had them already for a long time. They certainly make your room look very inviting. Your daughter-in-law’s taste in style and design is really amazing. Thanks for sharing!
