What Could Be Better?

Than waking up this glorious sunrise view this morning right outside our family room picture window?


In the grand scheme of things…. nothing! However, the day did go on to send a few more blessings our way.

First, as if we are now in practice mode for my husband, Bill/Bro, to retire in just two more years (we just can’t hardly wait)… we were blessed with Bill getting to have another Friday off this week. As I’ve mentioned before, Bill’s work schedule is supposed to be four ten-hour days, but that almost never happens. So, with Bill off again today, we both still got up very early, but instead of him rushing off to work and me to spend time with my mother or Shantel…. we just spent most of the morning lounging around the house drinking coffee and  enjoying each other’s company… Yeah us! 🙂 🙂 We also looked up a tracking number for some western window valances I ordered for the master bedroom and found out they were scheduled to be delivered today! Bill hung new wood blinds in the master bedroom last weekend and hung the rods for the valances so they would be all ready when the valances arrived. I don’t like heavy curtains. I would much rather have blinds with just a valence… I love decorating and couldn’t hardly wait for the new window treatments to arrive… Well here they are!!! P1030557


It’s a little hard to tell by these photos, but in the middle of each brown, fringed area, are four silver conchos … Does that not just scream I want to be a cowgirl??

Because we live on a pretty tight budget now, so we can help our daughter Shantel until she gets through school and gets a job…., and these are a little more expensive than just regular off the shelf valances…, I order them from a western décor store, I only ordered the valances…. But, the next step will be to order the beautiful comforter set that matches the valances…. Something for me to look forward to… 🙂

Now, I know with all my heart that when I go to my great reward in heaven (and sing with the choir of angels, because I’m asked not to sing here….) our daughter, Shantel, will want nothing to do with anything that remotely say’s cowgirl, country… etc… Unless, she changes a WHOLE lot between now and then…. And, I’ve not heard of any of our other children that are interested in anything rustic western…. So all I can hope for is that one day, someone will love this décor as much as I do… someday!!!

Stay Tuned!

    Beautiful, and although Chante is not your daughter she loves rustic western to the point that she has said when she gets a larger home she will be asking you to help decorate her new home. She said sorry mom but I want aunt Virginia to help me and I am okay with that. Although that will mean you will have to come out.to Oklahoma.
    Preferably during the summer since you don’t like cold weather. Lol

      OMG Lucie, I would be all over that and I know mostly how to do it on the cheap!! I have waited so long for anyone in our family to say they love the same rustic décor that I do so I could help them decorate if they wanted me too…And now…, perhaps it will come to pass… Thanks for your comment. It just added so much to my already perfect day!!!
