We have Curtains (almost)

We didn't do a lot this weekend.  We made some more meals for Tom's mom so she wouldn't have to cook after her surgery, I dragged Tom to the mall so I could get a new pair of jeans (but I did let him take me out for lunch afterwards as a reward) and we bought curtains for the living room/dining room windows. I am working on a project but it's taking longer than I thought it would.  Okay, that's a lie, I started working on it too late and ran out of time.

So how about we talk about the curtains? They are from Sears, and are a faux-silk with an embroidered pattern that runs vertically. 

Swatch from website:

They only had two panels in stock so we took them home and figured if we liked them we could order 4 more.  Well we do like them, but they aren't long enough so they'll have to go back and I'll order 6 online instead.

I don't have very good pictures as I couldn't iron them (since I'm returning them) and it was dark when I got around to hanging them up.

I don't think I've ever purchased back-tab curtains before but I love them.  They hang really nicely and slide back and forth easily.

A happy coincidence is that the detail on the curtain, though silver/grey, looks like it matches the wall colour exactly.  It's going to look like we custom-ordered them.

We also picked out a new stove at Home Depot and hope to buy it on Wednesday.  Tom won $2500 in gift cards at a skills competition last year and we have over half still unused so the stove will be absolutely free. Maybe that needs exclamation points. Free!!!!

Here's a sneak peek:

I think we've also narrowed down the choices for a new refrigerator.  We just need to save for it.  Or Tom could win the competition again this year.  Momma needs a new fridge!

never thought of using back-tab curtains...  it really makes the curtains look more custom/nice quality!
