my favorite and least expensive improvement has been
CURTAINS for both windows!!
ok, really just a valance for the small
sink window, but it softens the window and filters the light so well. (plus i don't have to look at the ugly side wall).
i already had the valance and just bought a tension rod for $3 @ wal*mart.
the other rod i had, so i picked up 3 semi-sheer panels from target for $5 each.
it was the BEST $18 i have ever spent.
wish i'd done that months ago.
and mom was here the other day. she said the famous phrase 'oooo do you know what that needs?' (pointing to the valance). 'some black pom pom trim.' agreed!
i had bought some a few days prior. i gave it to her and she took my valance home~ then returned it sewed (sewn) and ironed. what a fabulous fairy to have around! what am i supposed to do for the next 3 years w/o her?!
i like the white flower 'cupcakes'.
it only cost me $6.50. i was storing the cake stands, so i dusted them off. i picked up a flower bunch 1/2 off @ hobby lobby. the papers were $1. much more cost effective than $8/ cupcake x 16+ shipping and handling!
keep calm and have a cupcake found here. makes me smile every time i walk by it.
now i need to turn my efforts to the blank family room wall.
