Last time we were in the big city, I went into a Jo-Ann Fabrics store that had recently opened there and found this fabric I couldn't pass up. Just the thing for the valances.
Here's a Before shot of the porch windows.
(Taken on a very frosty morning.)
And the After picture.
This little touch makes me happy every time I see it!
This is also the time of year that I put up this sign next to the door into the house proper. Maybe it's just me, but I get a chuckle every time I imagine someone going across the kitchen floor with snowshoes on. Ga-lump-shuffle, ga-lump-shuffle, ga-lump-shuffle . . .
