Happy 49th Anniversary M&D!

6 Aug

Today is my mom & dad’s 49th wedding anniversary.  I can’t imagine being with the same person for that long let alone still talking to them :-) 

Over the years, I’ve given my mother such grief about her home decorating choices.  For example, the green glass lamps in our living room that she threatened to assign to me in her will (but later sold at a garage sale). Of course, those lamps would be hot items for all those retro ’60s decor lovers (of which, over the years, I’ve become…). 

We always had tons of green in the house — especially cheery apple greens like the color of this acrylic tablecloth.  When I saw this, I got to thinking that it’s very like something my mother would have used in our house.  Maybe she shouldn’t have gotten so much grief from me afterall…

    Let’s not forget the about the green bead drapes (or were they red?)in the bathroom. I loved those things! I still have an obsession with colored glass, thanks to mom.

      Oh – I still remember our bead burning party! And the green lamps were good for years and years of teasing!
