Home tour part 4

We have 2 hall ways in our home and both got new wall arrangements.
Our daughter in law painted the piece in the center of this arrangement and I really like how this all turned out, with our grands photos around it.  Yes, I am behind on getting good photo enlargements of the youngest grandson, but he is just 4 months old and too young to notice.

The bumper cars stay parked here when the grands are not riding them,
On the other side of this hall, the children's books stay on this shelf- they get used a lot and that is about as straight as they ever are.
A counted cross stitch sampler lovingly stitched by my Aunt Evelyn.  Can you find your state on it? They are in alphabetical order.
The other hall is smaller and just has this little shelving unit. 
Our Bibles are one on shelf, the lunch box on the bottom shelf holds greeting cards and my husband keeps his stuff in the drawer.  
That is a plug on top for charging cellphones, etc. 

The last of our 3 extra bedrooms is a guest room. It got a different bed, different window valance and all different things on the walls.
This room is mostly used by my parents when they come to visit and I try to keep it as empty as possible so they have room for their stuff and it is easy to move around in. 
One of my grandmothers made the star quilt on the bed and I think she used a kit.
The hexagon quilt was made by my other grandmother.
A little portacrib for the rare naps of grand children. Quilts were made by my grandmother.
I made this last summer with my then 4 grands.  I think little hands and feet are just so cute. 

The hall bathroom- I don't think I changed anything in this room except organizing it's big floor to ceiling cabinet.  

Thank you for visiting- I'll show our living room, kitchen and the last bedroom soon.

Thank you Wanda. I am fortunate to have quilts made by both my grandmother and my great grandmother too.

Hi Debra, I think your handprints in the quilt sounds so sweet. I really enjoy your blog :)

Thank you Debby, I bet your grands would like the bumper cars too.
