The Paint is Dry

Two weeks ago we painted our living and dining rooms the Behr paint color named, "Fall Mood." I love the way it warmed up the rooms. (Not to mention that now these rooms are completely clean - for now.)

The curtains are new (to me) given to me by my mom from a garage sale find. It is Battenberg lace (thanks to Amy for telling me this - boy she is so smart!) and I love them. Mine is very similar to the third picture here.

The dining room is the same color. And last week my friend Amy was gracious enough to sew for me a bench cushion for the window seat.

Wow is she talented! Thank you Amy! I love it. The cushion makes the dining room "pop." And is a wonderful, comfy place now for the kids (or me) to curl up with a good book, or look out the window at our bird feeders.

It looks beautiful! I am so glad I can picture the rooms! It is so nice to KNOW everything is clean, to have new paint on the walls, spend time with an old friend, and have a new space to cuddle and watch God's creation! Thanks for getting the pictures up!

I love, love, love the window bench!

And the colors in the fabric.
