Lincoln Decor

Today I toured Lincoln's Illinois home on-line, via photos. I was just a little surprised at how boldly the carpet and wall paper selections were. Many of the rooms have absolutely no coordination what-so-ever, and some of the color choices just smack of what I would expect. It's not to say it's good or bad, just surprising, that's all.

On the whole, it was affirmation that a home is a place to "lived" in. It might not look pretty, but if it's comfortable to you, and it functions for all who reside in it, then it it should be.

Window treatments for the girls' room

There are three windows in this room. I found satin sheets on clearance at Target, and thought it was a great price for drape making fabric. I'm not sure if the turn out is as astounding as the concept was...but it will work. And the girls' like what I've churned out thus far.

I still have two more windows to go, but this is a good start.

Taking the Angora out of the Knitter

What do you call an Angoraknitter who no longer has an angora?

Just a plain old knitter.

Today my last Angora went to bunny heaven. So...I'm kind of rethinking this blog.
