We had cable for a year and during that year I became very close with HGTV . Specifically, the show Decorating Cents was my all time favorite and Joan Steffend was a name heard around our house quite regularly. Honey would watch the show with me and helped bring my decorating plans to fruition – always with a “hat tip” to Joan when we finished a project.
At the end of every show (they redid a room for under $500), there was a Joan voice over that would recap all the changes that were made and the cost of each. Without fail the words “touch of whimsy” were used in every episode. It seems that there are defined elements one thinks of when planning a decorating masterpiece: color, space, and touches of whimsy.
A month or so ago my sweet Honey told me that the decorating of our home had taken a turn since we moved into this house. His words were, “It lacks a certain touch of whimsy.”
I could have been mad (I am sure I was a bit touched off by it) but as I looked around the house I saw what he meant. The kitchen was STARK and needed so much help. Enter the precious curtains memom helped make and now these:
Watch out, Joan Steffend, I have come to play!!!
