My Love/Hate Relationship With Change

When it comes to change in my life, my usual instinct is to duck and cover, stick my head in the sand...you get the idea. But, I love to mix things up in our home - new decor, a little touch of color here, a new picture there. I've been dreaming and planning and searching for awhile now for new fabric to liven up our living room. I found some gorgeous fabric at Hobby Lobby (quickly becoming my favorite craft store - they have GREAT sales!) for curtains and some coordinating fabric for pillows. AND I found lovely curtain rods at Bed, Bath, & Beyond for less than half their original price! I finished the curtains recently, and Heath helped me hang them last night. I wasn't too sure about them when I went to bed, but this morning I keep looking at them and smiling. This is a good change!

Here's a peak at the results:

the curtains

the pillows
and the pillows-to-be
