Because she can 

I have specifics that roll around in my silly little head. 

I see pictures of the clothes I should wear the next day.

I see dinners that should be prepared.

But the biggest? Home decor. Good grief its like a circus up in my head. So many pictures and ideas. It’s just plain ridiculous.

I’ve been havin lots of thoughts on parlor curtains. Pinterest supplies the pictures from my brain. Way to go Pinterest! 

I wanted poofy

I wanted old fashioned but fresh

I did not want to cover the wood work 

I want these!


Pinterest supplies the pictures 

The pictures supply the sources 

Who supplies the cash for the custom made beauties?

Mom! Help!

Me: “Hey Mom, can you make these?”

Mom:  “Well I think so” 

So she dreams and frets and worries about how to make this happen.

I dream and figure out how to get all the supplies she needs so that she can make this happen. Cause Mom ain’t sleeping until the project is done.

Curtain panels from Lowes to the rescue. They were the perfect color and texture. $13 a panel x 5 not too shabby.

How to make them poofy?

Well that’s just skill and complete patience. I watched Mom sit at my table for days hand sewing the panels to make pure perfect poofiness. 

Add vintage lace  to the bottom and SHA-BAM 


My picture takin skills need a lot of work but you can still seee the poofy perfection. And my piano? No words – the joy.

Today?

I’m painting upholstery! 

Make it a great day friends
