I began dutifully hemming our new curtain fabric after the orders were out this morning: Katy making tissue flowers, me with a needle and thread, the IPod playing Keith Jarret; it was a real domestic scene, until....the curtain went up in flames when I layed it on a candle burning on the counter. No firemen were involved, but we had quite a nice fire.
So, rather than blog about our wonderful new curtains, I'll show you Miss Twinkle, my favorite orchid that finally came in a month later than usual.
When these bloom, they'll be the color of claret and they also smell amazing.
And, my friend Marlowe over at Orts and Fragments brought me this beautiful stained glass window as a present. She was ready to hang it but the transom window wasn't steady enough for it, so we've been moving it around to see where it best fits.
Two more parasols are completed. Installing them today. The curtain installation is set for tomorrow.
