They’re Here!!!


triheartdivx

Hello Everyone!!

I hope you all are having a fun and wonderful weekend!!

Well, my curtains came in this week.

I really like them.  I was so afraid I wouldn’t because I have had my Dorothy’s for so long, I was unsure about change.

But OMGosh!! I am so glad I finally took the plunge.

Anyone who knows me from RMS, WS, or JSPF knows I have been talking about wanting new curtains for years.I just couldn't decide on a style.  Then my Prim Pal, Dawn, got a pair of these style and I loved them.  So I finally bought me some.

Now I have went a little nuts with the photos.

Also if you know me, you know I always do!! LOL!!

Here are some B4 and after shots and some other views of my new prairie swag curtains.

See… I told you I went nuts on the photos!! LOL!!

 

I just couldn't get a good shot.

IMO, these look even better in person.  I truly love them and they give the whole room a much more prim look.  Not to mention the room actually feels larger with these.

I have a couple more photos to share with you…

I got some new goodies in the mail today.

1st off is a wonderful little red ware pitcher I bought from Karen, KM Primitives.

Since I collect red ware and yellow ware, I knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it.

Thanks so much Karen!! I Love it!! ;)

I have been spending the day tweaking some things and working on some goodies for the swap I joined.

Oh yes, I joined in on Char's “You are so Trashy” swap!!

I am really having so much fun with this!!!

My creative juices have been flowing like crazy over this!! ;)

Thanks so much Char for putting this together and for letting me join in on the fun.

Plus I am thrilled with my swap partner, who is the very sweet Ann ~ A Hole In The Basket Primitives.

What a wonderfully perfect match we are!! :)

Kindred Spirits, Ann calls us!! ;) Hehe!

I really hope she enjoys the goodies and I am working on just for her.  Trying to come up with neat ideas, that I love, hoping she will also.

Love those curtains Tammy! They do make your room look larger. I am going to take the plunge too but can't make up my mind which ones and which color. Love the prairie curtains but my window are a bit wider. I don't think they would look good. I bet you are so glad you got them. They do look wonderful. Have fun with your swap!

Tammy ~
I do love your curtains. What a change. I used to have the same Dorothy's curtains! Now (in a different house) I have nothing but the old fashioned roller shades on the windows, but after all these years, I am ready for a change. Like you, I have many windows so I don't think it is going to happen in the near future...lol.
Thanks for sharing all the pics.

As I have said before Tammy, these curtians are also my favorites. I thought I liked the look of your room before but man what a difference. The room looks amazing. I just can't believe the change. I loved looking at all the before and after pictures!
I'm excited about Chars swap myself. I've always had great partners. Can't wait to see how this one goes.
Enjoy your day and your new curtains!
