Colorful Curtains!

When Jemimah had brown paneling she needed light colored curtains - it was SO dark in there!

But now that she's all white inside she needed COLOR! I have been looking for just the right fabric for months - I wanted something with a retro or 70's look that would be cheerful, and would not cost me my kids' college fund (if they had one).

Thanks to one of my favorite thrift stores, I found exactly what I needed! I found three almost-vintage bedspreads for $3 each. Whoohoo! I don't know how old the fabric really is, but I'm guessing the bedspreads spent the last couple decades on Grandma's 3 twin beds.

I spent a couple days sewy-sew-sew-sewing, and voila!

I love the results. Now I can't wait to find the perfect fabric for the dinette cushions!

Jemimah is done camping for the summer. It's kind of bittersweet - we love getting out and about with her, but we're also happy that she's going to be just hanging out at home. She's going to spend the next several months (probably) being home to one of our grown kiddos, and that is a good thing. We're excited, and Jemimah seems to be quite willing.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy travels!
