GiT er DoNe..:) OuT wiTh the oLd In WitH the NeW...

Hello my good people in blogland!!! how are you this fine tuesday? I hope those of you that are getting serious weather are all snug as bugs in a rug and are nice and toasty and home so far is turning out rather nice considering they are telling us bad weather is coming our way..maybe its the calm before the storm..we had a "footprint" of snow yesterday..didn't last long..but it was pretty to look at.;) I decided to finally hang some curtains that I purchased from Factory here are the BEFORE photos above and below..I started to take down the curtains and ran and got the camera thats why it looks weird on that one end.;)
before (above)
now here is the after..;) I have them gathered up and I sewed on velcro to them as there is a wooden box up there..

Today I added the hardware on the sides so I could open them this looks a bit better in my opinion..more shabby chic..:) or more country romance..will be putting my shabby chic bedspread back up this spring..
This is the guest bedroom and here is the BEFORE picture with the white curtains..not bad in here..but since I got the "free" curtains from Factory directs mistake.. I wanted to hang these instead..
what do you think? at first I was not digging it..but now I am okay with do you like that lamp at the top of the picture..this is hubbys "I love me room" with Navy and motorcycle stuff in it..
a Token kitty photo..thats our pretty little poe-poe..;) I have Sillie Millie sitting on my lap as we speak..kneadling my arms with her head buried between my boobs..;)she has assumed the position as we call it.;)she is my typing buddy on some days.:) other days it Sunny bunny;)
Here is what I am working on..I just painted this and waiting for it to dry so I can stain and add the finishing touches..This will go on my etsy site..wouldn't it look great in a wooden trencher..
Speaking of which..I am trying to swap with a gal on facebook for this..and that swan/goose above will fit puurrffeecctly in it..hoping she will do the swap for a couple of my things..then I will have to make me another goose to put in here..well that is it for me..I am starting a penny rug for Linda as we are doing a swap..and I am making her one of those prim blessings rolling pin covers as she really liked it..I have other pin covers that I want to make up and some Valentine towels and dolls to make..I am also doing a Valentine swap and need to get that going.;) I hope you all have a wonderful day..Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi...:) you always make my day leaving comments.;)
p.s. this is my 791st when I reach 800..I will be posting a stay tuned.;)
