My summer bedroom

I cleaned my room really well today and put up new valances. I had beige flouncy valences before and they were so ugly. I made these valences. (valence valence valence... Sounds weird after you say it a few times... valence valence valence. Am I spelling it right? Looks weird.) I also made the roman shades underneath a few years ago and they are nice but they are about an inch or two too narrow. It still bugs me. I love my new blanket. It is going to be perfect when it gets warmer.

I threw away a number of home-made gifts from the kids. There was the tissue-and-duct-tape flag Kira made, and the styrofoam dartboard with sharpened popsicle sticks for darts that Sam made me. Those are down deep in the garbage can outside right now. I wonder if the kids will notice. I also put away my autographed picture of Jane Seymour, John Schneider, and Joe Lando (Dr. Quinn, and Sully and guest star). Sorry Amy. I'm keeping it safe though, don't worry. It's probably worth a fortune.

I'm not entertaining any offers for it so don't bother, all you jealous people!
It's our retirement.


  1. You're spelling "valence" right if you're describing your window treatments' combining power with other window treatments in terms of their availble hydrogen atoms.
    I think you're shooting for "valance" here, but who am I to judge?

  2. OMG you're right, Jared. It should be valance. Valance valance valance. Now I'll never forget. Valance.

  3. Every time I look at these pictures I like them less. The bedroom looks a little too "stripey" but in real life the stripes aren't so overwhelming.

  4. I think it looks cozy and summery. Now for the picture. LMAO. Who spent money on that?


I would love your comments.
