Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

More White Touches

I ran into Big Lots yesterday after an afternoon doctor's appt. I like to shop after visiting the doctor.I guess it's retail therapy after medical therapy. I dunno.  I know lots of people who thumb their noses at Big Lots and stores like them. I'm not one of them. There are times that it doesn't matter if you spend $20 for something or $100 for something slightly better. Nobody notices. So I spent $20 on some sheer white panels to go with my white walls in the family room and dining room. The result is just beautiful.

 Just the simple, romantic, gossamer feeling I wanted.

Forgive the uncropped picture. I'm sure you're so impressed with the electrical socket. I'm too busy right now to mess with photo editing. Our kitchen remodel is scheduled to start this weekend. I need to move everything out of the cupboards asap. And all of my seedlings are begging to be transplanted. About 200 of them. They're crying, "Oh please, please, please...we need more room, we need more soil, help us!"

So why am I putting up new curtains right now? Creative Avoidance.

I'm gonna be incommunicado for a few days during the remodel/transplant extravaganza. I'll peek in on you all, but probably won't leave any comments. (If hubby catches me on my laptop when we're this busy, he's sure to confiscate it!) Bye for now...

I've always love the softened look that sheer bring to a room.
Good luck with the remodel...we'll be waiting for pics!

Debora, I love white and also can find great deals at Big Lots. You are a brave one to take on remodeling and gardening.
