Home Improvement

I get distracted from quilting, as I try to pull this house together.  I want to be happy in it, no matter which room I'm in.  That's not just a goal, that's a Grand Goal.  Gotta have 'em, right?  Like "earn a ribbon in Houston."  :)  Shoot for the stars and maybe you'll land on the moon during your descent.  ;)

So anyhoo, I ordered some new lace curtains two weeks ago.  They arrived yesterday. ooh aah.  I like them, very much.

The first went up in the pool bathroom.  I took down a lace valance with a green satin ribbon running through it.  This is the new improved valance.  Beachy, right?  :)

Since I was ordering, I thought it was high-time I updated the dining room.  This was the old look:
This picture was taken back in August.  See the vinyl in the window?  To prevent peeping Toms?  And the draped lace sides?  There were some loopy lace valances across the top as well.  Can you say, "So 80's"? 

Welcome to the 21st Century, Kistler House:

oh!  Look at that!  I hung one of them upside down!  I didn't notice it until I downloaded the image.  haha!  It is now right side up.

My thanks to Country Curtains, for their nice selection of window coverings.  I'd definitely call this an improvement.  yay!
