As usual, I'm late getting my post in for Show and Tell Friday.....but better late than never!
I've been trying to do both Halloween decorating and projects and putting together a fall tablescape for next week's Tablescape Thursday, in between other house chores this morning; and in a couple of hours I have to run off to the airport to pick up my brother who is flying in from Los Angeles for a couple of days, so I'm a little crazed today! So much for relaxing on my day off!
My father and stepmother have lately been redecorating their house here in Wisconsin (they have another house in Florida). They sort of were forced to re-decorate; last autumn when they left for Florida, their house flooded. Apparently there was a problem with the water system that heats their floors ( they have radiant heat and all the tile floors in the house are heated by water that runs through copper pipes beneath the floors). One of the pipes in the wall burst and flooded their house. They had about three feet of water on the first floor of the house; which ruined all the floors, furniture, carpeting, the walls and wainscoting and also collapsed the ceiling in the finished basement, ruined the TV down there as well as their leather furniture and anything that was on the walls. It was not a pretty sight. Luckily, their beautiful oak bar and the cabinets for the bar area in the basement were salvagable and just had to be re-finished.
Anyway, it took months and months for everything to be fixed. They weren't able to get back into the house until May. My stepmother used the opportunity to re-decorate and start getting rid of things that they no longer wanted or didn't fit in with their new decor. She let us kids look through all the stuff and pick anything we might want.
I found two pictures that I really liked and thought they'd be perfect for our guest room.
Thanks for stopping by!
