Finally!!! We are finally finished with our sunroom. It has been a huge job. That's the way it is, isn't it? What you think is going to be a simple project usually becomes a huge project. Oh, well. There are just a few little details that need to be put together, but over-all, I think it's about the best it's going to get. I've already told you about the bench (how Phil took someone's junk and made a bench), well....if you will notice the big chest......someone was throwing it out, it was at the road for the "garbage man". You guessed it! We snatched it up. The chair belonged to Phil's grandmother and was very marred up. He did a little sanding, staining and varnishing and it's almost as good as new. Now, the curtains are another story. They are just dinner napkins cut in half and stapled to furring strips. We then nailed the furring strips in place and attached tassels with hot glue. Gotta go. I think Phil has already moved on to another project. He makes me nervous sometimes. I never know what he has up his sleeve. See ya!!

Wow... just how do you come up with your ideas? Who would have thought.... napkins turned into a lovely valance effect. And you don't need to be ashamed ... one man's junk is another man's treasure. Sometimes it just needs a little love to bring out it's beauty. You two have done that with your sunroom. So you checking on a publication soon?? :-)

I cannot believe the difference from that sunroom my kids have played in. Wish I could come sit a spell and drink some lemonade or tea. You're always so nice to be with.

Hey Sue,
Just a note to tell you the sun porch is beautiful.
How are things up there? Okay here, super busy. Had 3 funerals this week. Yes, I would like to sit down over a cup of tea and just talk too sometime. Hope all is well with you. Judy
