I made some big purchaes for the house this evening, including a new couch and loveseat from JCPenney Home Store's Linden Street Collection. They had a promotion this week for a free chair if you bought the sofa, so I got all three pieces and they will arrive this Friday! I have enjoyed our white slipcovered couches for several years now, but the slipcovers are worn and tattered and the whole set has seen better days. We have a lot of memories attached to that furniture, so it will be hard to see them go but I think I will list them on craigslist tomorrow to make room for the new ones.

I also ordered some drapes and valances from Country Curtains that I've been thinking about for a while now. The linen ones above are for my dining room. I was thinking about doing a really cottagey floral in there, but I like the idea of having a neutral backdrop and changing out the table settings with the seasons. I love the little pleating along the edges of the valance. The black and white check are for my office. I actually orded a slightly different scalloped valance rather than the Austrian one in the picture. I feel like curtains up will make the house feel so much more settled in. I'm still trying to decide what I want in the kitchen but I think I talked my mother into sewing some panels for the living room. The pictures are from the website www.countrycurtains.com . If you're looking for curtains, they have nice things and I have bought from them before.

Hey Hayley, do you have any flea market suggestions for the KC area? I may be in the need for some furniture and I definitely want more knick-knacks (like I need them...). You have totally given me a flea market bug!! I've been to one in Harrisonville--it was so big I was in there for 2 hours and still didn't see everything. Any others that you know about? btw, LOVE those black and white curtains! I may need something like that in the basement.

There is an awesome one downtown that is three stories...I can't remember the name of it but it's pretty well known. I also loved the Brass Armadillo, which was huge but a bit outside of town if I remember right. If my friend Shannon is on here, maybe she will leave more suggestions. She used to live there and is my all-time number one junking buddy.

The linen curtains for your dining room are a GREAT choice! You wont' regret the simplicity. You will have FUN in the dining room.
The black and white add a nice graphic touch.
