Quick And Easy Window Dressing

I made this quick and easy window dressing for the larger window in my kitchen. My house is most definitely not formal at all. Some things are even put up temporarily, just to see what I think about them.

I like bright colors and whimsy.¬† I’m not at all above decorating using kids toys. Who doesn’t like toys?!¬† Why do we have to hide our inner children? I can play too. Or at least look at fun things that make me smile.

So here is a curtain that I made and threw up in a jiffy. My kind of timeframe.¬† I used iron- on hemming tape, probably the wrong way but it worked for the purpose, a babies teething ring and super glue.¬† Yes I have moved on from staples and duct tape to super glue. Works great when you don’t get it on your fingers or in your eye!

I had this really long piece of material that my daughter left here many years ago and I just rediscovered it in a drawer.

I super glued the curtain to the window frame (a tiny bit)¬†because I couldn’t find a little tiny nail.¬† You can do things like that when you have an old crappy house.¬†¬†Then I super glued the teething ring to the bottom of the window sill and to the curtain behind it¬†to keep it in place.¬† If I decide in a few months that I want to replace¬†it¬†I will just¬†take¬†it down and paint over the chipped paint.¬† See I told you, quick and easy window dressing. And fun! Makes me smile anyway.

I call it my Happy Curtain.  Go ahead let your imagination go. Look for something you can use in an unusual, creative and unexpected way, something that will make you smile.

Easter Inspiration Painting

I woke up to a most beautiful day and went straight outside and started painting. The painting morphed several times into different subjects until it finally showed its true colors. I knew it was right when my heart felt light and happy but also realized the sadness involved. When I could sense God weeping for his only Son that he sacrificed for us so that we could have eternal life.

After I was happy with the background I¬†laid¬†this little twig against the painting. I liked the way it looked but didn’t want to attach¬†it to the painting. The little twig is a dogwood tree that I tried to transplant from my son’s yard to mine. It was never happy after being moved. My husband thought I had told him to chop it down and after he did I felt so sad about the little dogwood. So I am thrilled that I was able to use in my painting after all. I¬†laid it against the painting and painted the shadow of it.

It was so beautiful outside, I was inspired by all of the sun, greenery and bits of pink flowers that I could see.

These are close ups of the painting since they are a little difficult to see in the large picture.

The canvas which is actually a 27 x 23 piece of plywood. I leaned it against an old lawn chair because I knew I would be using a waterbottle to spray it as I worked on it.

This may be available in my Etsy Shop later. I hope you all have/had a fabulous, grateful and thought provoking Easter Sunday.

The Happy Tree


It is in my nieghbor’s yard right over the fence. I think I will buy two for my yard. I wish it would keep a flowering bloom all summer but it doesn’t. Soon these gorgeous pink cherry blossoms will fall off. They look like ballarina skirts. Tiny little dancers all over the tree.
