Finally New Curtains Are On There Way!!!

Hello All!

I hope you all had a good week.

I have downloaded “Live Writer” and I am trying it out for the first time.

Humm… Still a little unsure about it.  Just tried to go in and Change the header and it won’t let me.

I do like how much easier it is to upload pictures though.  That is definitely a plus!!

Okay, just discovered

something else I don't like.

When I started this new paragraph it changed my font and colors.  So I had to stop and redo the changes again.

That is irritating!!

 

Oh Well… Onto what I was getting ready to say.

 

Thursday was payday so I spent my pay check on my new curtains.

 

I have been wanting new ones forever.

I ordered some prairie swags from Irvins.com .

Here is a photo of what I ordered.  The photo is from Irvins website.

I will be sure to show mine off as soon as they come in.

I got the black, just like the ones shown in this photo.

Also this week a very special prim pal of mine sent me a wonderful surprise package.

Sweet Kristy Lee sent me this wonderful prim decorating book.

I also did a little bit of tweaking this week.

 

I'm not sure if I like it yet or not.

 

I added some of my quilts to a cabinet I have in my dining room.

I figured I would live with it awhile and see what I decide.

You will also notice my new box I got from Karen's website and my new homespun bonnet I got from eBay.

I also did some slight tweaking on my yellow cupboard.

I added an old wooden box and filled it with old wooden utensils and a wood bowl.

Well, that is about it for me!!

I’m wearing down and my bed is calling my name!!! :)

 

But I thank you all so much for stopping by and visiting me.

 

I am so excited to get my curtains in.  I will be sure to show them off as soon as they come in and I get them hung.

 

I think they will make a huge difference in my living room.

I really hope I like them!!

 

Until next time…

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you All!!!

Love your new curtains Tammy! I am wanting some too, and love the prairie but my windows are wider, not sure they would look good. Love your cupboard with all your quilts. The one with the yellow ware looks good to. Like the addition of the box. I have the same book Kristy sent you. It is a great book! Enjoy!

Live writer does require patience but I think the quick loading of the pictures far out ways the fustration. To change your header or background just go back to blogger and do it but the font color and size has to be done at live writer:)

My curtains are from Irvin's too only mine are the burgendy, you will be getting yours soon as they do deliver fast! I can't wait to see them at your windows:)

I love those curtains Tammy. That is the style I want in my livingroom. I was thinking maybe a solid tobacco kind of color for me. Can't wait to see yours hung in your home. Both your cupboards look wonderful. You have such nice collections.
Enjoy your week,
