Casa Momma

My Virginia siblings haven't had a chance to visit our mom's new apartment yet, so let's take a quick tour together, shall we?
The four-floor apartment building is set back into the woods at the top of a hill. Deer come to visit every day between 3:00 and 5:00pm. Past the hanging swings at the front door, there is a lovely lobby with couches and chairs where residents tend to hang out, as well as a common room, kitchen, piano room/library and game/fitness room all on the first floor. Everything was decorated to the teeth for Christmas, yet somehow it didn't occur to me to take pictures.
Mom's second floor apartment has an entrance hall with a huge coat/storage closet on the left and the kitchen on the right (even she has a bigger kitchen then me!)
with an awesome pass-through
to a small dining area.
Kris and Mom found this great little table and chairs that matches the china hutch at a thrift store.
The open living room is a nice size
with a sliding glass door to the world's tiniest balcony overlooking the courtyard.

All of the furniture has been taken in for the winter, but normally there are picnic tables and a covered glider and a big grill out for the residents to use.

The bedroom is in the back and is large enough not only for the bed (Kris also found the headboard at the furniture thrift place) and mom's tall shelves, but for a sitting area as well with her favorite chair and a television. (not pictured)
The bathroom is huge (i think the linen closet is as big as my whole bathroom) and Mom decorated it in a beachy theme to bring some of Florida with her.

Thanks for visiting; drive safe.
