As many already know, I am an avid fan of Tracy Porter.  She has kicked off this week with an amazing giveaway and I thought I would share the opportunity with anyone that happens to read my blog.  If interested, you can go to Tracy Porter's blog and post a comment to enter.
Good Luck!

A New Member of the Family and Completed Curtain

I have obviously been behind in posting on my blog, but quite a lot has been going on this past week.  First of all, my niece gave birth to the newest member of our family early Thursday morning.  His name is Calvin, and he is a cutie!  See for yourself...

Calvin's arrival brought my brother, sister-in-law and nephew into town for the weekend and it was chaotic to say the least.  
As far as news on the home front goes, I did finally manage to get the curtain in the kitchen repaired and completed.  I think it turned out pretty good.

I think you get the idea despite the poor picture quality.  Still waiting on that camera...
I am working on some odd and end projects this week.  Hopefully the distractions will slow down so I can shift my focus back on the home renovation projects I would like to have completed this year.
Happy Decorating!

Poppy Friday!

I mean Happy Friday! Ok, so I have to admit that I have had a million distractions the past few weeks and am still working on the window treatments for the kitchen. Soooo, since I do not have any new kitchen updates to share I figured that I would talk about my latest obsession. . . POPPIES! They are not yet in bloom but after seeing the latest issue of the Martha Stewart Living Magazine I have had visions of silk poppies dancing in my head.  I am definitely going to have to find time to make some poppy decor to jazz up the house this spring and summer.  If anyone is interested in joining me in the poppy making fun, here is the tutorial provided in the magazine and on Martha Stewart's website.  In the meantime, feel free to enjoy some lovely and inspiring poppy pictures.
