The King of Curtains

Okay.... So remember how I told you that we have yet to put up curtains in LB's room?  Well.... we still haven't... I know, parent fail.  The issue is: I want to make the curtains and Jerk Face? Well, Jerk Face is being a jerk face. Santa brought me a (Project Runway Edition- fancy, right?) sewing machine for Christmas and it's still in the box... I've been stitching to get it out and try it! (See what I did there? I used 'stitching' instead of 'itching', pretty clever, huh?)

I want you all to know that we DO IN FACT, have some "window coverings" in LB's room... I think it's hilarious (maybe a wee bit creepy...) and Jerk Face feels bad for our neighbors... something about 'dropping property values'...?
{FYI- We DO have the worst house on the cul de sac. Our priorities just aren't focused on the OUTSIDE of our house right now.. but we're trying to fix it: new windows, paint, blacktop, weed killer, trimming, new mulch, etc.}
(Nevermind the overgrown bushes, we haven't trimmed them yet-- yard work is a process!) 
Do you see the top right window? That's LB's.
What? You can't see what's in the window?  They're some old beach towels...
Let me give  you a closer look:


A bright (an ever so slightly gaudy) orange polka dotted one...
and who's that you ask?
Why, it's The King of Rock n Roll!
Elvis Presley 
...he is alive and living in my daughter's room... creepy?
Even creepier? He glares at you as you enter her room.. Watches as I rock her to sleep...  He stares at her while she sleeps...


I told LB that Elvis is her guardian angel... 
Maybe it's a little less creepy that way?

I can't decide if I think the Elvis Guardian Angel is creepy or not, but it's FOR SURE awesome, either way!

Excited to see what you do with your fabulous sewing machine though! :)
