Four of our Turkish pillow covers have been framed and are now hanging in the entryway. They are stunning and very colorful. The entryway shelving/basketry “thing” has been put together and is in place. Now, we need to go through all the papers on the counter; sort, toss, save, organize and get them off the counter.
I found a gorgeous quilted runner for 1/2 price at the thrift store; $4. It now adorns the oak buffet that I am using as a linen closet. I also ordered four more window shades; three for upstairs and one for the great room. These are top-down, bottom-up, cordless shades. We have an identical shade in the master bedroom and it is terrific. I am not a fan of window treatments, but when these are not in use, they are basically out of sight. I also bought a couple of vintage hand-crocheted doilies for the new dining table and the upstairs end table. I am sure I have vintage doilies packed away, but who know.
Our daughter was here for a couple of days and concurred that the smaller of the loft rooms makes a more comfortable sleeping area. Decision is still out on the need for a folding screen of some sort.

The search for a boat has seriously commenced. I know squat about boats. This could be another blog in itself!
