Today was a fun day.......a mother/daughter curtain shopping day. Miss J bought curtains for her living room, dining room, and bedroom. I love everything she bought.
Well, it was a fun day for us. Not so much for Mister Miss J. (ie my son in law Steve) He WAS having a good day until we walked in with the curtains......his day went downhill from there. FAST. :-) Their living room has the mother of all windows. It's a very difficult window to dress with curtains. Due to it's size, the curtain rods need to be supported with a middle bracket. The body language in this next shot just totally cracks me up.....
Okay........time to sit down and read the instruction sheet on how to hang the rod for the valances.......

By the way, doesn't Stanley just crack you up as he's so relaxed and comfy over on the left hand side of these images. :-)
I wish I could show you some "after" shots, but I had to get home........I spoke with Miss J on the phone a while ago, and she assured me that Steve got the problem solved and the windows look great! Whew!
The Specs:
Panasonic LX3, ISO 400, 1/40, f2.3
Photo two: ISO 320, 1/30, f2


  1. The house looks great Caol, the hardwood floors, paint color and white picket fence, love it

  2. Hi MaryC,
    The fence was put up by my parents when they lived there. I love the paint that Miss J and Steve painted the walls with, and the hardwood floors looked great when they took the rug up. They just need to get an area rug, but yes, the place is looking fantastic. I brought my parents over there last week and they LOVED what has been done so far!

  3. The house looks great. So much fun for them!! You will have to take me over to visit someday.

  4. Hi Nancy,
    Miss J would love to have you come visit!!! I was very happy with her choice of curtains. She said "I am so your daughter"!!!!!!! You are going to love them too when you see them.
