Back in the Saddle Again!

Good Monday morning to you!  It's beautiful, bright, and COOL here in NV this morning!  In fact the weather man said that we won't hit 100 degrees this month...unheard of in these parts...but I'm not complaining!

So anyway...I'm pokin' around in Blogville this morning and found a site I've seen before but today it brought me some new inspiration.  When you get a chance, check out Funky Junk Interiors.  The girl is amazing!  Well I'm looking at her bedroom makeover because, believe it or not, I don't have a dang headboard....what's it been, 13 years?  Who her's is cute but I don't think I am up to it right now and then I take a gander over at her window.  And I ask myself, "Self?  Are those SHEETS she's got hangin' up there?" And my self says, "You know, I think they are!"  Well shoot!  My crumby looking window treatment could use a little sprucing up and I just happen to have a couple of white, lacy, king size pillow cases hangin' around doing absolutely nothing, so I dig 'em out.

These are  what I threw up there a few weeks ago when Dace and Charis
came to visit.  They are just drop cloths I got from Home Depot and washed.  They're okay, but nothing to write home about.

So here's one of the pillow cases...I know, I know,
I should have ironed the dang thing, but who wants to fuss with an iron
when I'm full on into my inspiration mode??  Certainly not me! 

Close up of the lacey bottom.  I have had these for YEARS!  YEARS I tell ya!

So I gathered 'em up and thought at first I'd just tie a hunk of twine around them but, since I
had my inspiration going full tilt, I dug out a piece of material I had stashed away and tied it around the middle.

One done.

Annnnddd, two!  What do you think?

A little further back.  I still need to fiddle around with 'em a bit, but for absolutely $0 I don't think they're half bad.
