New Curtains

This weekend was an exciting one around here.  It was my daughter's 19th birthday, the fourth of July, and we had a barbeque.  Between unemployment and my illness, we have not had much to celebrate, and we definitely have not had any parties the last few years.  But, times are changing, things are looking better, and we decided to have a little party this weekend. In order to ready the house, I decided to make the curtains that have been wanting in the family room. I have a beautiful picture window out there, and there have been no curtains out there for way too long.  I finally got around to it last Friday and Saturday.

Didn't they turn out cute?

I also decided to hang a few pictures.  This one a good friend brought over.  She found it at a sale and thought it would look good on the wall here, on the wall adjacent to the curtains. Sadly, the pictures are a little bit dark. I will try for better pictures in the afternoon.

I think she was right, it is a good size for that wall.

The rest of the hanging projects will have to wait for another posting.  We have work to get done around here!
