Looking out on the world

I have been raving to my friends about the new windows we had installed in our home last month. The bay window I splurged on has been the subject of debate and conjecture.

I finally stained the inside trim and covered the cornice board. Chris hung the blinds and cornice board this week and so the inside work is complete. I am not posting a photo of the outside until the weather warms and I have a chance to paint. Right now it remains a bit strange looking, but after exterior paint it will look like it grew there.



As you can see it is beautiful and really adds to the family room. I love it and I'm so glad I took the advice of my friends. You were right. It is just hard for me to spend that kind of money on myself, especially with my husband in the background saying . . . "You do whatever you want, dear."

Oh very nice! It really brings the outside in. Great place for a chair and a book. :-) (If you had time for a chair and a book!)

Absolutely beautiful, Janie. Good for you! I am so glad you are enjoying it; you deserve it!

I imagine you enjoying your morning coffee by that window. Saturday morning, I will be sitting by my favorite window, drinking my coffee out of a certain beautiful rose-printed mug, and thinking of you.

Psst, Janie...

Sometimes when spouses say that, they really mean it. :-P

CMR - I don't doubt that he means it. But what you guys don't get is the absolute apathy of that particular statement makes most women furious. Nine cases out of ten we are gonna do whatever we want anyway. We are looking for affirmation and/or discussion, not unconscious agreement. Ya see?
