Holly's been Busy
February 2012, new Draperies
|My Front Room
looks SO much better now...
John suggested I move the cages from in front of the windows to the side wall.
Than I had room for a love seat.... We Like it :-)
There is still room for my kitchen table and the cat wheel
I needed to make draperies.
I spent 4 days looking for fabric. Drove to all fabric and wall paper stores within 50 miles.
Then surfed for 4 to 5 hours a day for 2 days.
I finally found this fabric online at
This site had a LOT of good ideas too
They will even print your photos on sheets and other things.
|I measured the
drapes so I could leave the top open and no one can see inside... Sometimes
I am not fully clothed when walking around in the evening...
I found these really neat rods... They are like a track with wheels and little clips that pinch onto the curtains to hold them... they roll the drapes open real easy.
In this image I had not finished the valance.
My tiny front room looks so much bigger now... And I still have room for 2 kittening cages.
It is pretty private here. In
front of the house is the road with little traffic, then a creek and
You can see the corner of my HHR in the driveway.
Out the side window I can see the cattery.
John went shopping with me one weekend and we found this nice love seat on sale for only $200. It is soft and comfortable.
When we are not sitting
there I put a Scat Mat on it to keep John's dog off of it :-) She is a good
bad for this cat. She is young but stayed with Intrepid for a few
months... She is fat and Could be pregnant...
I am holding her to do all the paperwork and testing to send her to Taiwan. I get one litter out of her while I am boarding her.
I had this space between
the windows and it did not look good white...
|This is a
close up of the fabric
good detail of the neat curtain rods too.
Since it is tapestry, I lined the back hoping the cats would not snag it as much... I hope they do not try to climb the front....
... Today while looking for show cage curtains I found a third rose of boarder paper....
These are some of the fabrics I
thought about using...
I wanted to add more color....
Today, 2-27-'12, I finished calking under and above the baseboards in my office... to keep cat litter out.
Next I will make new privacy curtains for the cages for when the girls are birthing.
Only about 2 weeks before Kittens start arriving :-)
Last week was my day to make Family Dinner for my Mom's house....
I made a 'French Orange' cheese cake
it is low fat and low sugar, 2-23-'12
YUMMM, most people had seconds
I decorated it with Orange Marmalade
for more flavor and sweetness.
Recipe coming soon... It is funny the substitutes I used and it still come out good :-)
Hugs to all
