Well I thought I would post some spring time going on in our yard right now...This primrose is in my vegetable garden and is always the first thing to bloom..and it is the only one blooming in the yard right now...I have alot of primroses native to our state and this is the only one blooming...

  1. Too cute!!! Those kitties and the pup are just tooooo cute!!! As far as the curtains- I love them!! my vote (for what it's worth is....No Valence. :>)They look great the way they are!

  2. I love the curtains just the way they are. the room is so cozy and country without the valances. I can't believe it is so warm there already! No signs of spring here in Missouri yet. I think those white flowers may be called snow drops, but I'm not sure. Have a great week!

  3. valances..yes!!! They are nice without them, but the valance would make them more elegant. Without, is just sorta plain or prim and your couch and fur look more elegant. Either way should be fine, though.

  4. I say no valance, just my opinion. I love to see flowers popping up in the spring but that won't be for a couple of months here in mi.

  5. No fair ! Hey Gina... send some of that warm weather here !.. and the flowers.. well, it's nice to know that spring is springing up somewhere !..

    Either way for the curtains .. like that valance.. it would make it cozier with the valance , but less light..

  6. I say they are great without a valance. Love the warm colors too.
    Enjoy the touches of spring and keep on showing them to us - it gives me hope!!

  7. Hi Gina,
    Love the curtains just the way there vote is no valance.
    Oh how seeing your flowers gives me hope that Spring is not far away!!
    Tucker is too cute with a pacifer in his mouth!! And what a good mommy you are to take cookies to the parents at doggie school!
    hugs, Cindy

  8. OH MY!! I LOVE those curtains!! It's so warm and cozy in there.
    Sure rub it in by showin' all your flowers in bloom!!
    I love those furbabies too! I get the biggest kick out of Stanley. That was my daddy's name. :> )

  9. Hi gina,
    I say that look perfect just the way they are. Take the valances back. Don't need them and then get matching pillows from your curtains. LOL
    OH Tucker is a cutie.
    The flowers are snow drops and are a bulb. I have some from Grandma's garden. I am looking forward to spring and clean up- yeh- not but will be worth it.
    I am wicked busy too but hopefully we can get together soon.

  10. Awwww, Tucker is TOO cute with that Nukie!! My son would go nuts to see that:)

    I love your curtains and think they look great just as they are

  11. No valances!
    I love Tuc's night night and you know I love your Kitties! Beth

  12. Awhh that Tucker is so darn cute!! (so are the kitties)!
    I love your bits of spring popping up...sure wish our snow was gone...I can't wait to see my flowers...or anything for that matter...besides this SNOW! :)

    I love your curtains, I like them without the valance!

    Enjoy the rest of your week!


  13. Oh you have flowers!!! Not fair, I want them too!!! Like your curtains & they look good just the way they are. All of your furry friends are so cute!

  14. I too love the curtains the way they are, simple does it! Your living room looks so cozy! And that little white flower looks like a paper white. Love the primrose too!
