Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Mistreatment



OK, so the Nester is having a mistreatment party and since I have no trim up around any of my windows and I don't have any window (mis)treatments up anywhere in my new house, I will show you the only mini mistreatment I have. It is a shower curtain made from a tablecloth I got from Target a few years ago. I just glued some black and white polka dot ribbon to the top and tied it around the rod. There's a liner behind the curtain and the curtain part doesn't really slide, we just pull it back. Please note the wrinkles, it's such a nice homey touch don't you think? You know what the Nestor always says, "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful."
