If you exclude the pounding headache that's been hanging around, it's been a really nice day. A front came through last night and we got some much needed rain and today's weather is absolutely wonderful. Bright, clear turquoise skies, a nice breeze, and low nineties. What a relief from the past couple of weeks.

Also, I'm really proud of myself. I recovered our barstools in this pretty fabric I found last week. This was my first attempt at recovering anything, so I'm happy about how nice they turned out. Here's a pic--



Our kitchen and family room flow into one another and a while back (Thanks to an Artist's Way date) I bought some new curtains for the family room. They're gold and rust and a dark forest green. So after I got the curtains, I had to get new gold and rust pillows for the couch and loveseat. And that called for new gold rugs in front of the sink and stove--which led to the need for gold barstool cushions. You know how that goes, right? Anyway, I think they are so pretty. And the best news is the material was only seven bucks a yard and the staples were three dollars, so I have very cool new cushions for a grand total of ten dollars. Yay!

Doesn't it feel great when you accomplish something you've tackled for the first time? And for 10 bucks! Great job! I recovered my dining and kitchen chairs a few times. Hmm, the kitchen need it again.
