Dressing our windows for success..........Our piece of mind.....

Walking thu my home last night I took note of each window and how it was dressed. Ugh!

I need to make some changes. I will revamp some drapes and keep some the way they are,
but some will "just have to go".

Here are some inspiration window treatments that caught my eye when searching for window coverings.

I like the accessories to look as nice as the drapes themselves. Hobby Lobby and some of the
major department stores have really up graded their look of these accessories. My daughter
loves to shop at Home Goods, Bed Bath and Beyond are two of her favorites. I tend to go toward
the fashion as big is better; but I am finding out that, that is not always true. I love the black
tie back on the top page of my blog wrapped around a urn and I know it will not stay there, I just don't know where it's home will be. I know for sure that the black drapes in my master bedroom and bath will stay. The black silk and creme underlining is just perfect for my bedding. Also see the photo is my blog screen picture.

I hope you enjoyed these photos; what's on your windows? Please post and give me some more ideas. My windows need heavy to bulk the rooms up or maybe I need a interior designer! Gosh,
what a deli ma to have.

Is The Napkin To The Left of the Plate Or To The Right Of The Plate...........

I have set the table with the Napkin:
On the right of the plate
In the center of the plate
Underneath the salad plate
In the wine glass
Underneath the serving plate

What is the correct placement if you lay the napkin down by the plate, is it to the right or the left. In watching Christopher Lowell his take is to put the napkin to the left. What do you think?

Post just in time for Susan's tablescape thursday!

Picture are from Photo Search and I give them full credit for there beautiful tablescapes. Check them out!
