Our New Little Bundle of Joy

Good evening Sweet friends.
So about two weeks ago,
I picked up our new little bundle of joy.
 
6 week old gray lil kitty.
My co-worker was feeding a stray cat over the Winter,
and well momma kitty...who she thought was a male,
had 4 kittens.
 
Mikayla named him for us as we could not think of a proper one.
Shadow is a perfect name!
Mikayla believes this is her kitty now.
 
Plus we joke now that he is now Ace's little shadow.
Shadow is on the right ready to pounce on Ace.
Peepers still has not quite warmed up to him yet.
 
Don't you just love this cute face?
He is a little terror though too.
Biting at everyone's toes. LOL
 
But when he tuckers out,
we just have to say
AWW.....
 
Kitten Blessings To All!

You Made Curtains From What

Happy Happy Thursday
to all of my dear sweet blogging friends.
Almost the weekend. LOL
As you know, we were suppose to finish our kitchen,
and well that money went towards my car
to help my son.
It was the right thing to do.
Anyways, now that meant postponing
finishing our kitchen.
Oh well, life happens.

I still decided to redo the one window.

Bob bought these drop cloth paint floor step runners.
Two for $20.00 at the Big Lot store in the city.
Woohoo!!

Yep, if anyone guessed, I made curtains from these.
They are an off white and feel wonderful.
Really, I wish you could feel them right now.

This was my before pic.
A hodge podge for sure.
My mom had made me the bottom curtains for my other house.
I just stuck them there and added some store bought valances,
when I bought this house.
I placed the tin sign for some privacy.
Our houses are close here by the river.
Fortunately I get along with the majority of the 50 neighbors.
We have the best neighborhood!
So here I am going off on a little tangent. Sorry about that.
Back to the window.
All I did was sew a pocket at the top for the rod to go through. 
Then I bought this vintage screen print sign.
 Honey Krust was a bread company.
This was hand painted right onto the screen. 
I added muslin to the back for privacy.

Now for the after picture.


Moved our settle bench and table from the living room.
Switched out the red dry sink to the hall and moved the blue one in. 
How just a little change can make a big difference.
What do you all think?
Curtain Blessings To All!

Morning Sunshine

Good Evening Sweet Friends.
Yes I am still alive.
Yes I am still very busy.
Yes I still owe everyone some pics of goodies I am working on.
Right now, just a couple pictures
of the sunlight shining in our kitchen the other morning.
 






 
Then there was our little Ace who covered up his face
when I went to take his picture.
His way of telling me
"Geez mom, can I sleep?"
 
Sunlight Blessings To All!
