Yesterday I told you I was making small changes
in our home décor. One thing I'm trying to do
is limit my buying. I've always been a
"use what you got"
kind of girl,
even if that means having to
totally remake something or using it for
a purpose it wasn't made for.
My Mom has an entire drawer of cloth napkins,
kind of strange because I've never known
her to use them unless it was a holiday.
Mom and Dad have always been
paper napkin people.
Well, I've started using them,
not for every meal but when it makes sense.
Dad fights it.
I started thinking,
what can I use them for.
The kitchen curtains were in very bad shape,
I think they had been hanging for 13 years.
Mom may have even had them
at their old house in Meridianville.
They were faded and thread bare
and had to go.
I chose these green and purple ones.
They looked like they had never been used.
Now, I'm not much of a seamstress and I haven't
investigated Mom sewing machine yet.
I kept it simple and sweet.
Used a tension rod and just hung them over it.
I can live with it.
