To market, to market to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again jiggety jig.

Refashioned 1950s Curtains
I took the two huge barkcloth panels and made 4 smaller panels from them, and hung them from rings like I've been doing in the rest of the house. When I hung them this way, it made them apron length without rehemming, and that suits me!
I like them. I'm still seeing a bit too much of that house next door, but I have a plan that I hope will cure that problem. The colors in this picture are much more accurate than that night time photo at the top. I sent them off to the cleaners to get washed and pressed...so if the fabric holds up, I'll have one more room of windows done!
This naughty little bird was not in the Christmas box, but in some other box I unpacked yesterday. So I stuck him up there, and he looks like he likes it better than being stuck in a box until Christmas!
Painting, journaling, antiquing, and working on fixing up my little craftsman bungalow. My kids are grown, and I'm starting to get used to (and love) being mom to grown-ups! Each day is a gift, and a new chance to live well.
