“A home should be a haven for those who live in it.
“A home should be a place of beauty and charm—with a feeling of peace, security and serenity; with an atmosphere of warmth, graciousness and hospitality.”
Those expressions indeed represent the philosophy of Mrs. James W. Mott, who is leaving her home after 35 years of planning, building and living in it.
She has sold her country home, a Polk County show place at Zena, to Mr. and Mrs. Jock Brydon, former Salem residents who are returning here after living in California. The new owners take possession this weekend.
