I have a Christmas Eve special for you!
I am finally ready to show you our newly painted downstairs! I have been so excited to do this, but waited until I had my Christmas decorations in place before I took pictures. This extra time allowed for us to have the new carpet installed in the family room (just two days ago!), and also give DH time to do some 'touch ups' that he was fretting about. So let's begin!
Quilt Sue, remember sending this to me? You are sooo sweet!
Perhaps curtains would make a difference? Are you noticing that none of my windows has curtains? All were removed when we painted and are so faded that I've decided to replace them. This will take a bit of thought, however, so in the meantime we are curtain-less; not a problem for us in our remote country setting. We are more likely to have a deer or a bird peeping in our windows than a human. Curtains really are not a necessity here.
This tour has now concluded. I hope you are enjoying your Christmas Eve! I expect DD2 to stop in later today. She will then go on to her boyfriend's house for Christmas there. Tomorrow afternoon we will get to spend time with some extended family on my side when my brother and sister-in-law host an open house for all of us.
We will go to mass this evening and probably drive around to see Christmas lights - that's sort of a tradition we started when the kids were little, yet we still do it ourselves now that they are grown!
Merry Christmas, Friends!
