Hello!  It's been awhile since I have posted to the blog.  Sorry about that, but I have been BUSY!  I thought you might like to see what I have been working on this year, so let's go!



This is the living room of a  bed and breakfast in Delaware.  They had the most beautiful vintage fabric in just the right amount to complete the draperies and valances.  They also have my valances in the library (unfortunately no pics).







This project turned out to be just fantastic!

Move Accomplished!

 
 
 
I have completed (well almost) the move!  It is not the historic house I had hoped for, but a lovely and private location that suits me well, with a fabulous and large studio for the fabrics.  The windows here are a challenge because their widths.  I am used to 48" or 34" windows that you find in the historic houses.  This house has 28" wide windows, which can have become a quandary for me in fabricating window treatments that look good on them.

The Next Move

Sorry to say, the negotiations for the property have broken down.  I won't be moving there anytime in the near future.  So...... off to find another property!

I have to say, I am sooo in-tune with the movie Pride and Prejudice.  To find a house like any of those represented in the movie would be fabulous!  The windows are spectacular, along with the views.  I'm thinking I need to meditate on having something close to Longbourn house.  Although very  timid for the time period, the house is not pretentious, as well as having windows that would knock the socks off anyone who had to dress them now.

The next move!

Oh dear!  I have to move!  Moving is the MOST hideous thing anyone should have to do.  But, here I am looking for some wonderful and old house that is in decent condition without much repair.  The good thing is, I think I've found it!

I met this wonderful landlord while viewing another house.  The house was quite pretty, but my 2 queen size beds would not fit up the stairs to the bedrooms, and there was a fairly ugly wood stove in the living room.  I thought about throwing the queen size mattresses away and purchasing full size beds, when he called me to let me know he had taken another family for the rental.
