the other gorgeous fabric

I removed the hideous closet doors from two rooms in our house and spent around $1 million to make curtains. Actually my mama made them when she visited. The other curtains were for Bug’s room, which I still salivate over. The transformation in our basement guest room is amazing; The curtains are now the focal point. Andy would say that I am polishing a turd. But, hey, it shined up nice n’ purdy.

I am disappointed that the large heat vent prohibits me from doing an exterior mount for the curtains in the guest room. Here is a design tip: If you have an ugly heat vent in your basement that prevents you from doing an exterior wall mount for amazing curtains, place an adorable dog in front of the fabric. It works every time.

I think Amy Butler‘s designs are incredible. I want to make these pillows that look like giant pieces of candy. And I thought they looked like candy before I knew she called them gum drop pillows. so there. So I may have to graduate from sewing rectangles to sewing three dimensional objects. Profanity will fly. I will try not to let Bug be affected. She can hear now.

    Somehow Alice (your peanut punkin) looks as though she is either at the DMV or the Passport office posing for that picture that will haunt her for the next 10 years or so (anytime she’s pulled over for speeding or travelling abroad).
    And a natal hail to Meg as well!
    Over and out.

    The curtain is beautiful!

    I love your glass door knobs. My parents’ house has those, too. Our house is old and has the porcelain ones.
