When we moved into this house over 15 years ago, I put up these grape vines. They looked really cute then, but it has been a long time and they have lost they grapey luster!
I really haven't had time since child # 3 to do much redecorating, beside keeping the inside of the toilet a nice shiny white, however I got all motivated when I visited The Nest Place and show a quick and easy window treatment.
I begin to look for a fabric that I liked that was on sale (cheep!). I really figured that God would have to place it directly in my path because I just don't have time to shop and don't really like to shop! It makes me feel stressed.
I had to go to Pier One for a gift and guess what was there, almost in my path...a single Pier One Curtain panel ON SALE...big time!
So I brought that sucker home and began to use various tools...mostly a hot glue gun, scissors and tacks to accomplish an amazing task...amazing because 8 children were running around yelling, screaming, fighting, dancing, eating, laughing; but there was one thing that they WERE not doing...being quiet!
Do you know how hard it is to be creative in that kind of ruckus?
So, you can see the "fruits" of my labor...I abandoned all attempts at maintaining control of the childhood chaos; good mothering and discipline went out the window; no one had naps, but it was an effective threat; the supper was late and there were no veggies served with it; but I have new "window treatments". What do you think? Honestly?
