Thoughts for Thursday

Did you know that clearanced out tablecloths make for great curtain panels? I currently have Target tablecloths in my living room now, and found these today for $10. $10!! The designer in me knows that proper draperies are much better, more scale appropriate, and well, proper... but my budget does not currently allow for proper draperies, so this works for now, especially when I get the urge to redecorate, which is often!

This 1 tablecloth is 60x108, making it the perfect curtain width and length, especially since we never close them in the living room. 

I took the photos of each kid with Cy from my phone and made posters for our basement. I had been on the lookout for some kind of wall art for this space, and when I was showing Avery her photo with Cy after Gavin had gotten his I had this idea. Shutterfly can print up to 20x30, and that is what I did with this. They usually have great coupon codes and I took advantage of that. The frames are inexpensive ones from Target. They are also lightweight, so inevitably, when someone bumps into them and the fall, it won't be the end of the world, or the toes. The whole project was less than $100 for the posters and the frames, which I think is a great deal. 

As you can see, we are still on a puzzle kick. 

{Yes, after this photo, I took them down and adjusted Gavin's poster to sit in the frame to match Avery's}

I also received the CUTEST thank you card from my cousin's family for some design consultations I did for them on their new house. I've seen the progress shots, and it is coming along nicely. 

My heart is melting a bit. 

Happy Thursday!
