HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
I can't believe it is 2012 already!
I hope you all had a wonderful and safe New Years.
I want to thank everyone for their supportive comments on my last post. I know we all go through this and it is just so wonderful to know that we are not alone. The biggest struggle for me is to not give in to my fears and I know that I will take a few steps backwards, but as long as I am making up that ground and then some, I will be good to go. :)
Also thank you so much for the wishes and prayers for my hubby's surgery this week, he was touched by all your kindness and caring.
As we are waiting for our first snow storm here in Michigan, which is very odd and made for a long break with the kids not being able to go sledding or make a snowman or snowball fights, I wanted to cozy up a little corner in my family room so I went to good 'ole Walmart and picked up four, $4.00 sheer panels and a double rod to hang them on. I think I paid 25 bucks for everything.
Here is what my little corner looked like before.
I loved the opened window but it just needed something.
Growing up I can remember my Grammy's windows and the way that she hung her curtains. They were always soft and so pretty as they draped to frame the window but still let lots of light in.
So I thought that that is how I would do this window.
I LOVE IT!
It covers the window enough to make it cozy yet I can still see out and light can still come in.
I then used twine as a tie back and
attached some very special shells, thank you Sandra. :)
It gives me the beachy/airy/cozy look that I was looking for.
Can something be airy and cozy at the same time? Hhmmmmm. ;)
