Since I've been totally unproductive today,
I decided to take a look back.
My goodness, do we REALLY realize how fast time flies?????
Here's my post from around this time last year
and now we have new leather furniture too!!!
* * * * * * *
I finally finished our living room curtains!!!
My goodness...it feels so good to have them hanging
and to have them finished.
I'm just so pleased with how they turned out...
just the right amount of toile border
on the drop cloth fabric panels.
We don't have a frou-frou living room ~
it's very "cabinet of curiosites" and I just wanted to keep
them very stream-lined but elegant as well.
Now. All I need is a gorgeous new leather sofa and I'll make
some soft feather pillows to go with!
I sewed this beautiful skirted table about 12 years ago from a wonderful old
matelasse (Bates) bedspread and the topper
is the exact same fabric (Waverly cream and tan toile)
as the borders on the panels!
I even re-purposed the trim from the old bedspread
and added it to the edge of the topper!
I had this skirted table in my very first antique store "Red Rooster Antiques"...
Noah was about three or four years old....
Sept. 11th happened and my first little store was history.
The table has endured though and followed us as I love it so much ~
More art...the one nearest the window I put together from wonderful found objects.
I don't know if you remember the two bubble glass ovals we found recently
while out junkin' but I want to add them to either side of the lamp
filled with amazing old things!!!
My motto is that a wall is meant to be filled with
things that you LOVE.

Not all is perfect...
but just perfect for us.
I just love our sweet home.
It is what you make it.
Make it cozy, warm and inviting and use what you have!
You don't have to have fancy things, fancy furniture and such ~
You make it wonderful!!!!
Thank you always, always for stopping by to see what I'm up to
and especially for your precious comments!
Wishing you a WONDERFUL Thursday my sweet, sweet friends....
hugs and love,
