Puttering results.........

 I got a lot done yesterday as I puttered around my home. I dusted,clean all the glass,took down curtains and hung this blue valance I mentioned in my previous post.The one I found at Goodwill for only 1.99. I love it! I only wish there had been another set for the back window in my living room. I have shades hanging there now but, I will be on the look out for some other curtains or what have you to coordinate with these...I know how to "Make Do"...smile.I did more things I had put off,like organizing the pantry cabinet,etc. I put in a full day...slowly but,surly! The lamp I actually got to go in my bedroom but,decided I would like it better in the living room area for now. I purchased it a while back with the shade which was an off white...I knew I would paint it black and did so yesterday. I like how it looks now much better than before.


This is made from very good quality material.

Valentine Hearts.....here....
And there......
And here as well....smile.


It was fun but,I was in very much pain...so much so,I was almost brought to tears by late evening. I get so very discouraged because I enjoy this sort of thing very much but,my body is so uncooperative. Another reason I am trying to simplify my life more. Less stuff...less to manage. Which brings me to this picture....

More stuff on its way out.....
 I also gathered all my teddy bears and picked four of my favorites...the rest are not staying. I am going to limit myself to four in any collection I decide to have,except maybe my books..smile. One day I am going to get there...to my comfortable place...smile.
Blessings,Shelley

The valance adds a great deal to the whole room! It softens the edges of the window and looks really cozy. I like the lamp there, too! Reinventing our own environment, no matter how small it may be, is challenging and fun. All in all, worth the effort and you must be pleased with the results!

I love your drive and your continuation of purging. I just keep getting more and more. I need to thin out my collections, as well. It would sure benefit me now and my kids later!
Love that valance!

All is cozy, all is well I see. Change is good and especially for the winter months, this look makes the home feel like a cozy corner in this big world.
