1. Garden flag stand and flags– I recently purchased a garden flag stand at Ace Hardware to put in my front yard by the sidewalk. Now I’m always looking for bargain garden flags. I found a good deal on a Harvest/Thanksgiving flag at Ole Time Pottery and I’ve also purchased some flags on eBay… deals that were too good to pass up! I can easily see this becoming an addiction! So many pretty flags to choose from! I had several fall flags and Christmas flags and even found a graduation flag that I displayed for a couple of weeks when my son graduated from college recently. I just purchased a patriotic garden flag I can use on multiple patriotic observances as well as some spring and Easter flags.
2. New dining room and living room curtains– We painted our living room and dining room back in November. It was time for a change in window treatments. The previous pastel pink (bleh) curtains that came with the house were soooo outdated and would no longer go with the new paint colors anyway. I chose JC Penney’s Spice Market Paisley print sheer curtains that match my colors perfectly. And I love the waterfall valances. In the dining room, I also put up a bead panel for a more elegant touch (the cat thinks these beads are the greatest thing ever), but left the beads off on the two living room windows.
