My First Metamorphosis Monday


This is my first Metamorphosis Monday. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting. Thank you Susan. Click to check the other enteries.


I found new window valances at the Salvation Army. The other ones were nice, but I think the colors work better.


This is the new valance. It is black and cream. I think it matches better. What do you think?


My next post may be showing you my new backsplash.

Karen -- you certainly may add Linderhof as a favorite. I am doing the same!

Love your new valance! It looks great there -- hope you could find a pretty "new home" for the old one too -- It's also very pretty - but your new one looks better in that particular spot!

***Oh my gosh, Karen~~~ it's lovely, BUUUT, I honestly believe the FIRST VALANCE looks soooo rich & sooo great with everything... Would you mind if I ask "why" the change? (Just for "fun/change's sake", like we all do from time to time?)~~~ Hope I don't get "yelled at" by anyone!!! (Then again, if we ALL preferred the same thing, how BORING life would be, right???)... SMiles!!! Warmly, Linda

Linda/Mom, I love the gold valance too. I like how it fills up the space. I will probably change it back and forth as my mood strikes.

Linda/"Mom" said...

Sweetie, just came back to add something and saw your note... (soooo happy you aren't upset or hurt... didn't think you WOULD be, but, one never knows!!!). Happy to hear you will switch them as the mood strikes... that gold is sooooo elegant & classic ~~~ I just LOVE that look there, but as we all know, YOU have to be happy!!! Warmly, your pal, Linda
