Morning Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and happily
enjoying summer! Can hardly believe
we are almost out of July, only 8 days
left, oh my!! Did that fly by.....
Am all unpacked and just trying to
get my mojo back after being gone
for 9 days, another reason that July
seemed to fly by so fast.......lol
Some of you have asked when I was
gonna get my curtains up???
Actually the family room ones have
been up for probably over a month,
but figured I would wait until I got
the dining room done too, which has
been done for a few weeks now too,
but since we were going away and
I already had pics of my playing
vignettes done, so I did those
So now.... I can do my curtain post.
I have to say I have really enjoyed
the new look. After going thru the
pics and all, I decided to just show
you the family room this week, as my
dining room table has fabric all over it
and the sewing machine, so doesn't
make for a very nice picture. if you get
my drift.........so will show you those
next week probably. I am still tweaking
both rooms, but had to quit to get
ready for our trip and then of course,
the trip itself. lol So after tomorrow,
I will probably be back at it again.
Here you can see I was trying it out to
see how we liked it.
When you see them scrunched together
it is hard to tell they look like this.
Not the best pic, I might add, but
really love the fabric and if you have
been by last week, you saw this as
a table cloth............lol
The curtains went from this.....more formal look
to this more casual and modern look.
(The lights were on here so it sort of changed
the color) Still trying to decide if I want to
paint the curtain rods....and what color if I
did..........any ideas?? They would be welcome.
I am thinking I might like to paint the walls
a vanilla color, but not really sure..........
This is the right shade of blue on everything too.
This shot was taken from the dining room.
Did you notice I was trying the afghan in
different spots. lol Some of these pics
were taken at different times.
Decided to throw in a few Spring/Summer table
top pics as well. Since I changed a lot of things
around since Spring...........
A lovely book I won a few years ago in a give-
away from Bonnie over at One Designing Woman.
It is called "One Thousand Gifts"
by Anne Voskamp. A great read I might add,
the prose is wonderful, and lovely gift for anyone,
and It confirmed what I had already discovered
by doing my Thankful Thursday post every week.
Hope you enjoyed your visit, Happy you came
by and hope you will say hello........
Will show you the rest of the tabletops pics
