The sun is shining...sort of

I have been waiting and waiting to get something a little nicer than a blanket for my living room window. I finally picked out fabric that I liked (and that Jeff didn't hate) but then I took a few seconds to calculate in my head how much it would cost. Well...lets just say it would cost less to buy already made curtains AND have them shipped than it would be just to buy the patterned side of the curtains that I had wanted to make. So I picked out a lovely set of aqua curtains (they looked closer to teal in the picture) from West Elm. They are solid but I think I'll eventually add something to them, beads sounds like fun! They should be in by next week so I'll be sure to show you pictures when they're up! I can't wait!

The only downside for me is that I don't have a project to look forward to. I had been brainstorming what I would do for so doggone long now and just like that {snap} my ideas went out the window!

I guess I still have curtains to finish in the bedroom...

Add doilies to them! I know you'd love that style. Have you seen the curtains that Tif (Dottie Angel) designs? (She's linked on my blog.) I love them. They're very Anthropologie.

And, Amanda (Soule Mama) has doilies sewn all over her shower curtain. Very cool. She posted it not too long back so you could scroll back through her posts for the past couple of weeks to see it, if you haven't already.

You can find them garage sailing and at the thrift. Start stocking up! I just scored a bunch at our thrift last week.

Happy birthday! Hope you enjoyed your time at the beach!

I thought it was going to be sunny here, it was so hot and humid this morning. But it's been pouring all afternoon!
