I had a terrible scare a couple evenings ago. Our little precious Cavalier Murphy got out of one of our garden gates and was lost for about 45 minutes.
Notice the open gate?
I tried not to panic and called and searched for him as far as I could go. I texted my husband who was in Florida at a conference that Murphy was gone. I was afraid he had wandered into the woods of the mountain which is extremely dense. Thankfully one of our neighbors found him laying down in a ditch cold (it snow flurried all day) and scared and put a leash on him and brought him back. I had a heck of a time brushing out all the leaves and burrs in his coat.
You see, Cavaliers are big dog babies. They don’t do well fending for themselves. And, Murphy is the biggest baby of them all. He’s home safe and sound, happy to be reunited with his stuffed bear toy, and all’s well that ends well!
On the décor front, I hung drapes in the family room and my daughter’s room.
Remember this toile? I decided to re-use the drapes I already had in the family room.
I think they look better with the new SW wall color Wool Skein.
The previous large Kirsch mahogany rods were too overpowering so I bought these antique brass ones from Country Curtains. They have a smaller diameter and aren’t distracting. The focus should be on the drapes and not the rods.
Below is a peek at my daughter’s drapes.
These are the custom showroom drapes that I got on sale for practically nothing at Ethan Allen last summer.
The rod came from Pottery Barn. I love the mercury glass finials.
I’m still working on her room, so I won’t reveal it until later.
I am sooo behind on my blog reading. Forgive me sweet blogging friends. I’ll be catching up with everyone soon.
