I am having a problem finding a couple of valances the right color.
Yesterday I bought curtains at Walmart for one window, figuring I might use it in the computer room.
When I draped the curtains across my new couch, though, it was a darned good match.
The trouble is, we don't want curtains over the living room windows. One thing we absolutely love about our trailer house is how light-and-bright it is, which is something you cannot say about the old house. So a valance at the top works great, along with the blinds.
However, there were no valances in this pattern and color at Walmart.
And the blue ones just will not do. I can put up with our two old blue Lazy-boys, but those valances are totally out of place. Sorry about how dark the picture looks: Since I was aiming at the window, the flash wouldn't activate.
This wall hanging doesn't work so well over the new couch, either. It's very special to me, because a wonderful blogger friend in Maine made it at my request. I think it'll look just fine if I put some distance between it and the couch.
So I'll put that clock somewhere else and put the hanging above this blue chair.
And this picture, which has been on the kitchen wall, will go above the couch.
Now if only I can find the proper valances for those two windows.
Oh, thanks to all of you who voted for my picture at Five Minutes For Mom. I'm falling behind pretty fast now, but it was surely fun trying! Honestly, I expected someone to overtake me on this last day; I've had enough Ebay experience to know that's the smart way to play. Consider this my concession speech. I'll give credit where credit is due tomorrow.
