I can see clearly now

The view from inside the living room. We'll have a ringside seat when the birds show up for breakfast.

WE are thrilled and now I must work on the new drapes.


  1. Wow! What a difference. I hope the birds don't get confused and try to join you in the house.

  2. Wonderful! Much easier to wash, too!

  3. A whole new outlook!

    Those windows are terrific. What a nice view you have. I love that orange! Oh, have I said that before? :)

    It looks great, Melody.


  5. Yeah!!!! It looks great! The birds will have a great view of you, too!

    Drapes ?? Are you far enough from the road to dispense with drapes ? No window coverings seems to be the new trend.

  7. Wow, what a difference, Why hide the view with drapes, maybe some simple swaggy thing or Roman shade that stays up most of the time.

  8. Darlings, the drapes are just gathered side panels of iridescent orange silk. Like glowing swaths of color. No moving. Just panels that are stationary.

    Last night we walked down the drive to see what is visible in the house at night, and all we could see were the upstairs lights on the bannister. We are so lucky.

  9. The picture window is lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing how you do your drapes, because that is what I also plan to do for several windows, although not in orange! I have never made drapes, although I've made a number of other styles of window treatments. Do you plan to use lining and (I forget now what it's called) the flannel like underlayer between the silk and lining? It will help to keep the silk from sunrot.

  10. I love the new view. Who would have thought that just changing the style of window would open up the view to that degree? Absolutely lovely.

    You might still want to consider some blinds for nighttime. What if someone were to walk up to your house? Viewing from the road is not a good way to test, I'm afraid, because I suspect most people in 'your neck of the woods' drive by instead of taking long country walks.

    Those windows look like large panes of glass. I suspect they are not meant to be opened?
