Another blogger recently posted a picture on FB of their new curtains.
When I saw them I had to get some too.
These new curtains being the ones with the ruffles, are apart of the Simply Shabby Chic line designed by Rachel Ashwell carried at Target
I used 3 panels of the Target curtain. The curtains that I tied were the curtains that were in the this window before. Its hard to tell in pictures with all the curtains that this is actually two tall skinny windows not one big one like it kind of looks. I used tension rods to hang aqua colored sheers in each window, they are a little more aqua color than it shows in the pictures.
My Mother is very creative and always makes everything so pretty including her Christmas gift wrapping. The ties on the curtains are actually the ties she had tied around my Christmas gifts, I saved them knowing I would find something perfect to use them for and I did. Thanks Mom!
This room is just an open room (no door) right off the entry way. We really do not use it much, its very small only 9 x 9. I live in one of those neighborhoods where there is only 4 different houses just produced over and over again (24 houses in my community total) and I know a lot of my neighbors use this room as their office, but I just wanted it to be pretty since its the first thing you see. It's a nice place to just sit and relax maybe read a magazine, all the animals spend a lot of time sitting in those windows since the windows start less than a foot from the ground, checking out what all the neighbors are doing, my fur kids are nosey lol!
"Mom, why are you taking pictures of the house and not of us!?!"
My Mother got me this crystal candle chandelier this past Christmas, I had not hung it up yet until today because I had not decided on the perfect place for it, then today it came to me to hang up a chandelier over my pub table, its the perfect size for it and I don't know why I didn't think of it some time ago.
It's hard to see the chandelier with all the mirror in the pictures in person it really stands out.
The crystal candle chandelier is gorgeous I love it.

I would like to take a second to thank all the people who left me such sweet comments on my blog over the course of the past 2+ years. Reading your kind comments really make me very happy.
Someone was recently very rude to me on my blog, started with saying I can't call myself a homeowner because I have a mortgage, and "anyone" can get a mortgage which is the craziest thing I have ever heard, people with mortgage's are homeowners, duh lol! Being a homeowner starting at the age of 21 is something I may have mentioned several times on my blog, but it's because it is something I worked hard for and am proud of myself for. For someone to say I am not a Homeowner because my house is financed, really caught me off guard and I took that as offensive. They continued by saying other crude things about my pets and myself. My blog is in no way a professional blog, I don't make money off of it , it just my fun way of sharing my everyday life in many different aspects of it not just decorating, and my pets are a very big part of my life, they are my fur-kids! I am in no way upset by this person, they seemed pretty ridiculous to me. But this really did make me realize how lucky I am to have so many nice followers that always leave me such sweet comments all the time, both here & on and my blogs Facebook page, thank you guys, I really appreciate it, you have really enhanced my life.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
See you next time :)
