This sweet little laundry room window treatment is simple but packs a big punch due to the fabrics. Chocolate silk velvet and patterned cream cotton sheer work beautifully together.
Tara’s attention to detail means you’ll find something special every direction you look in this gorgeous kitchen. And this is true throughout Tara’s entire home! Continue Reading…
The past couple of weeks I’ve been in North Carolina helping my lovely niece get ready for her wedding that was held this past weekend. It’s be a crazy few days! But so much fun!
Of course they’ll be plenty of pictures coming soon but if you’d like a sneak peek be sure to visit me on Instagram at beyondthescreendoor or Facebook throughout the next few days.
In the meantime I’d like to share a bit of my Mom’s garden. I am constantly amazed by her gardening talent. I take after my Mom in so many ways but I did not inherit her gift of gardening. But my sister did! Maybe I’m just a late bloomer! Sorry, couldn’t resist.
This valance has the distinction of being the longest valance I’ve ever made as well as the one with the most pieces! Longest as in widest spanning over 16′ of wall space.
Not only was it the longest but it was one of the most fun valances I’ve ever made due to these cool fabrics! So much fun to work with. You’ve seen this fabric previously as pillows.
In case you like statistics…
- Valance covered 195.5″ of wall space
- If stretched out, valance is 384″ long aka 32′
- Mounted with 13 medallions
- 4 different fabrics
- 63 individual pieces for main valance including lining & loops.
- 12 yds of fabric
But the results were worth it! Continue Reading…
A few weeks ago Scott and I decided to take off on a Saturday morning and hit an estate sale or two. As you can tell by the lack of foliage that this was, indeed, several weeks ago and way before Spring had Sprung in the state of Oklahoma.
I grabbed my camera as we headed out the door and thought I’d share just a few of the pics I made that day.
Here’s a cute little project I made a while back that I thought I’d share with you. A sweet young Mom contacted me after finding a picture of a similar Burlap Ribbon Growth Chart wondering if I could make one for her.
Sure! I’m always up for a new project. But I can’t take any credit what-so-ever for the concept of this project. I simply played copy-cat.
This Sunday you can find me over at From My Front Porch to Yours sharing a bit about “How I Found My Style” in Pamela’s Sunday series.
I would love to have you pop over and say hello!
My heart is so very heavy this morning. Oklahoma is my home. The past two days have been extremely hard. My family is safe but so many have lost so much.
Please join me in praying for the people who have been affected by the devastating tornadoes that swept through our state. The families who have lost loved ones. Those who have lost everything they own. The children….
“…God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.” Romans 8:26-27 The Message Bible
Words fail…but not God. Even when all we can utter are wordless sighs and aching groans, God hears. He never fails. His Love Never Fails.
