Welcome to our exceedingly messy, beautiful life: "a big world is OUT THERE WAITING for us to live in every day. Outside, you will find, there is love all around you... It's a beautiful life & it's a beautiful world & it's a beautiful time... to be here!"

More Home Updates

I took a gamble on Etsy and got a pair of vintage pinch pleat drapes originally from Sears & Roebucks. Do you remember these from your Grandma's house?

We went and bought the traverse rod and put the hooks into the pleats and hung them up.
I thought it would be complex and difficult, but it was actually VERY self-explanatory.
I am pretty happy with how they look.
I think they will look even better with the new paint color - when we finally choose it!

Here is a little vintage kitsch - the napkin holder.

(You can also see some paint possibilities taped to the wall behind... not sure what we are doing... we shall see.)

The closet is continuing to shape up day by day.
We picked a light and D installed it.

I told D "it is all turning out better than I could've imagined it!
I can't believe it is actually happening!

Dining booth is ordered.
Won't be here for 5 weeks.
Now that I have decided, I am IMPATIENT!
Sooooooooooooo excited!
