A New Look ~ lovin it!!

I shared with you all I was getting in some new curtains this week. They arrived 2 days early!! WOOHOO! We have lived in our house for 5 years now. When we had our house built, we were one of the only houses back in our area so having curtains wasn't all that necessary. Plus we love our view! Deer walking through our backyard and trees ....glorious trees! Well, fast forward to today and there are no more empty lots. We have neighbors everywhere and have finally decided to cover the windows. I am not a decorator at all and have always looked to my Mom or friends for their expertise. Last week my Mom helped me look online for some curtains and we found some that we both loved! I ordered them last Friday and they were delivered Tuesday :)

Here is the before




And....the After



It is so cozy and we both love it! Thanks Mom!

Hope everyone is enjoying their week! Today is Angel @ All the Mus' birthday so everyone who knows her hop on over and give her some birthday love!! She will love it!

Hi Loren, I love your home-I imagine this might be a family room? So gorgeous with the crown molding etc. Love the curtains too!!! I think you should come help me find some for my family room, but then I'd also need a new couch. Oh well-someday. Also I hope someday to be able to give you a big hug in person-maybe if hubby and I ever take a roadtrip again.
Hugs today!

I love it both ways!
Thank you for letting us know that it's Angel's birthday. Just about to write my Counting it all Joy post!

Looks good to me! Just looked up at the window in my upstairs office and I have a blue (my favorite color) thingie (I don't know what to call it) that Charlotte made for me across the top of the window and a venetian type blind that I close at night. I keep it drawn open all day. We have wooden shutters on the down stairs windows. I liked your open windows but since you now need them closed at night, you made a good choice.

Sassy Granny ...

What a lovely, creative treatment! I love spring and all the opportunities it affords to freshen up. I'm thinking you're going to enjoy spending lots of time in your cozy little niche.

Blessings,
Kathleen

Super cute!!! I have the hardest time picking out curtains and end up just leaving them bare...we can get away with it where we live. However, these cute ones are very tempting. Great look. Your home looks so pretty. Love you, girl!
