We have lived in our house for 13+ months. We are the first owners and it was brand spanking new when we moved in. That isn’t the confession, the confession is that we have done almost ZERO decorating in our house during the last 13 months! There were a lot of expenses that never occurred to us when we bought our home…like window coverings. There weren’t even BLINDS when we moved in! That was a fast $3,000! We moved from a 1,400 square foot one story home to a 2,600 square foot 2 story home – we didn’t even have a bedroom set for our master bedroom – hello IKEA! Needless to say some things have just never been taken care of, partly out of laziness, partly because I really hate decorating, but mostly because it is a brand new home and if it has involved making any kind of hole in the wall I have shied away from it.
Yesterday that all changed thanks to the wonderful help of my Father-in-Law – our master bedroom finally got CURTAINS!!! Which means I am no longer waking up at the crack of dawn (literally). The window on the right faces East! The quilt is my original design and please don’t judge the pictures on the ground…I swear they will get hung up someday! I really want to get a table for our little seating area in our room, either that or bring up the Hope Chest from California that my mom said I could have…
The only problem is that there are three small windows behind our bed that are still uncovered. I’m not quite sure what to do with them, and now that all of the other windows are covered, I do really want to do SOMETHING with them, I’m just don’t really know what. I’m totally open to suggestions, and from the expression on her face…I think Anne is quite shocked they are still naked!
And now for the gratuitous cute picture of Anne – because I really can’t help myself!
