So what’s behind door…I mean curtain…number one?

Its our bedroom window! We have curtains in our bedroom!! (please excuse the puttied holes of the old window hardware…I was too anxious to post pictures to actually paint over the dried spackle and then wait for the paint to dry) My mom was here this weekend and sewed these awesome curtains for us! She had previously sewn the navy silk to cover the window on our patio door but we were lacking the real curtains for the main window.

I love this pattern!! This is an extreme close-up of the panel. It blends together when you step back and ends up being very subtle. This was one of the fabrics we ordered at Calico Corner last month. I’m thrilled with how it looks!

The navy door and navy/cream curtain panels work so well with our navy/cream duvet. It was also so much darker in our room last night – awesome! Of course when you get one item accomplished, you want to do several more. Now the terribly outdated floor vent stands out so a trip to the hardware store is in order to purchase a silver one. The beige mini-blinds that came with the house? They really aren’t appealing. I’m thinking two inch white wood blinds now!

I am so excited another item on my New Year’s Resolution list is complete! Thanks so much, mom!

Snow Day Fun

We are in the middle of snow day #2 and I am loving my life!! The wind chill is ridiculous so I’ve been curled up in my pj’s on the couch since Monday night. I’m not ashamed or sad to say that I haven’t done much and am so happy and relaxed!

Max and I checked out the snow on the front porch once it stopped at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon. We saw one neighbor successfully make it down his driveway and another get stuck when he hit the street. I hope a snow plow comes today since it looks like we will have to make it to work tomorrow!

Little Carl is so little…the snow is up to his chest so he has to bunny-hop through it all. It is so cute and hysterical! He loves playing in it and chasing Max. They’ve had a good time making trails in the backyard.

Once he is finished playing though, you better be ready! This guy needs a towel and a cuddle to stop shaking. He enjoyed laying by the fire all night long to warm up.

I’m thinking of being productive today…maybe…so I might start painting this bad boy and get another item checked off of my New Year’s Resolution List. Maybe…

This dresser is a part of a furniture set that I got for my seventh birthday. It was in our old house in the master bedroom and is now in one of our guest bedrooms. This is a great, solid piece of furniture but it needs some updating. The plastic handles have yellowed and the white laminate has seen better days. My parents said I can do with it what I want so I have some fun projects in mind for this piece. I can’t wait to get started!!
