I just moved into an old cottage with oddly-shaped rooms and miles of windows of various sizes. Love the windows, but my $$$ total for curtains and rods purchased so far - for only two of these rooms - is scary. Winter's here and soon family will visit and I've got bare windows. I don't sew.

You'll be glad you did, and chances are you'll enjoy the holiday a lot more, too.

Yes, my name really is Mrs. Smith.

I just bought a recliner. For myself. Oh yes I did. Me - the woman who once threatened a man with dire consequences if he so much as browsed in the recliner department. I believed then (and maybe it’s true) that the combination of a recliner and a TV remote spelled the death of a relationship. Only now I don’t care because I have a big crush on this chair....more
