So how about we talk about the curtains? They are from Sears, and are a faux-silk with an embroidered pattern that runs vertically.
Swatch from website:
They only had two panels in stock so we took them home and figured if we liked them we could order 4 more. Well we do like them, but they aren't long enough so they'll have to go back and I'll order 6 online instead.
I don't have very good pictures as I couldn't iron them (since I'm returning them) and it was dark when I got around to hanging them up.
I don't think I've ever purchased back-tab curtains before but I love them. They hang really nicely and slide back and forth easily.
A happy coincidence is that the detail on the curtain, though silver/grey, looks like it matches the wall colour exactly. It's going to look like we custom-ordered them.
We also picked out a new stove at Home Depot and hope to buy it on Wednesday. Tom won $2500 in gift cards at a skills competition last year and we have over half still unused so the stove will be absolutely free. Maybe that needs exclamation points. Free!!!!
Here's a sneak peek:
I think we've also narrowed down the choices for a new refrigerator. We just need to save for it. Or Tom could win the competition again this year. Momma needs a new fridge!
