Lazy Post

I’ve got house guests coming for the weekend. And did I mention that I’m going to the LSU game? Did I? DID I? I am so freakin’ excited. I haven’t been to a game since I was a student, so I am completely excited even if it is just the first game of the season. I’m going to tailgate and see a bunch of people I haven’t seen in ages.

Anyway, point is, I’m super-busy trying to make my house look less like a disaster, so I don’t have a lot of big posts in me. I did, however, finish the alcoves and hang my new curtains. Hanging the new curtains, however, revealed the saggy mini-blinds underneath, so I’ll have to address that at some point. In the meantime, pictures!

Here’s the one by my bedroom. That’s a New Orleans Jazz Fest Poster hanging there. My father gave it to me. I don’t know how many of you have heard of the New Orleans Jazz Fest, but it’s a pretty big, pretty amazing event. The posters become collector’s items as well. My dad has one from every fest for like the last twenty years. This particular one is from 1982.

This is the one off the den that leads to the second bathroom, and the other two bedrooms. That painting I did. It’s a knock-off of a painting someone else did that I liked.

One day we want to redo the trim in white and get real wood doors, but for now this will have to do.

Now, the curtains!

Here’s a picture from when we were looking at the house. This is not our furniture, but my husband did make me keep up those curtains because he thought they were nice. Men?!?

Here are the new ones–try to ignore the saggy mini-blinds–I’ll get to those eventually. You can also ignore the jumbled mess around the curtains. Or not. Whatever.

  1. I love what you are busy doing with your house. And of course Charlie’s getting cuter by the day.

    I love it all! Don’t worry about your mini blinds, mine are far worse. I just can’t afford to put anything else up so the ugliness that they are will just have to stay for awhile.

    I think you have done a fabulous job, maybe you could be an interior designer part-time?

    Have fun that the game this weekend. I know you will as you have lots of catching up to do.

    The tour bus company I work for goes to all the New Orleans Saints home games, we are also going Christmas shopping in New Orleans in December, can’t wait because I haven’t been to New Orleans since Katrina.

    Have a great rest of the week.

    Enjoy the game!! And you have done a great job.

  5. Inspiration! Just what I need! Thanks!

    Also, I really loved your last post about Charlie. It’s surprisingly refreshing sometimes to read such a sweet post about how much you’re enjoying your boy. I am terrible and often get too caught up in the craziness of everyday. I forget to enjoy them. Terrible, I know. Thanks, too, for that reminder.

    Have fun at the game!

  6. Ooh! I’m loving the green curtains!
