I have been very slow about putting pictures on the walls in our home. Partly because I didn't want to put a hole in the wall ( I worked hard to get the right color of paint) and I wanted to be sure I put something up I loved and not to just put something up.
We have a very long entryway.
On one side is my mothers buffet and a bookcase with family pictures.
The opposite wall has been bare since we moved in. I finally decided to put some pictures of us up. I used our wedding picture, 2 favorite pictures of the kids and their graduation pictures. I put them all in identical frames and between me and Tom we were able to hang them evenly and straight. The straight was the hard part. The frames were inexpensive and the brackets on the back of them were not in the same place on the frames. This called for a lot of measuring and eyeballing. I have to credit Tom for having good eyes. He did a great job.
Further down is a painting of Princes Lilywalkalina.
She was in the entryway of my mom and dad's home.
I've always loved this picture because:
My Grandma Kelly used to call me Princess Lilywalkalina.
My Grandpa Martin told us grand kids we had Cherokee blood in us.
When Jackson was little he looked at this picture and said "Mama".
This is really weird. I just realized that while I am writing this I have my hair in braids for the first time in 24 years. (Trying for the summer wave instead of my normal Rosanne Rosanna Dan frizz. To top this off I spilt a whole container of cornmeal all over the kitchen counter and floor this morning. Whoa!
