Changes Comin' Round!

Good Mornin' Ya'll!
I am so sorry I was not able to post my To Inspire Tuesday Quote but I have had a "not so good" stomach virus . I won't go into details but I will say that I have never been that sick in about 23 years. It was ROUGH!!
So anyhoo..... I mentioned awhile ago that I needed to ma
ke some changes in my decorating. And change has been good. I have been visiting some blogs and have been getting inspirations from some of you and the one who Inspired me in todays post was Dot over at Picket's Place I absolutely love her style!

She had done a tutorial on "No Sew Curtains" and that is my kind of tut! I will try and share the tut on my next post. I am soooo behind on my housework around here. (I have been sick since Sunday) So I need to get my "hiney" in gear! If you can't wait to see the tut just go on over to Dots and check hers out! Without further adoo.......

So, watcha think?I am trying to decorate my kitchen and dining room in white and red. Ooooo, before I forget, the embroidered napkins I hung over the curtains were done by a sweet "Elder Saint of God" in my church, Miss. Lucille. She does some amazing work! And it went so well with my curtains. Also I want to link up to Sues It's A Very Cherry World! -Rednesday so, go over and look at all the other wonderful "Reds" that have linked up!Well thats all for now. Have a blessed day!

I have stood looking at my window treatment for weeks now wondering what I could do to give it alittle boost and seeing this is my answer...please tell me what you used for the ribbin looking tie ups and give me some ideas on what I could do for the napkins seeings as how I could never find the treasures you have on yours!

Oh I love these curtains!!! and all without sewing :) I love to sew in my scrapbooking and card making but when it comes to fabric lets just say it is a skill that I do not have. I once made my son his whole halloween costume with iron on seam tape and hot glue. You did a wonderful job your curtains are darling :)
Happy Rednesday

So sorry to see you;ve been sick..that virus has been all over our town but we've missed it, so far. Hope you are much much better soon.
Thanks so much for coming by and following...I am doing the same with your cute blog..
Speaking of cute..those new curtains are PRECIOUS. And, red and white is one of my favorites, too. I have a red and white kitchen. White upper cabinets and red lowers...I am really impressed with the no sew part!!! woo hoo
