No Peeping Toms!

Hello, Dear Ones! I know I told you I would show you the crocheted things I've been making but I just haven't taken any snaps of them yet so I'll show you something else that I've been up to.

Okie dokie! That's right, I don't want no pepping toms around here! This bay window in the kitchen was rather nekked (that's transplanted Texan for naked) with just little ruffled valances. Now that it's winter, all the leaves from the trees are gone and...there could be peeping toms!
 We're not too close to our neighbors behind us but at night if their lights are on I can see them walking around and if I can see them without even trying ~ gasp! they can see me too!
 I went to town fixin' the situation. My daughter gave me some sheers she had and I chopped them up to fit the bottom half of the bay. The light still comes in beautifully and as you can tell from these first few snaps, it's hard to get a good picture with the light.
 Now that I had the sheers up the next thing to do was decorate the window sill. I love this little place to play.
 If you visit me often you'll recognize my decor items here.
These two urns with the topiaries used to sit on my mantel in Texas at different times. Thought I'd poke them down here.
 Then my favorite yard bird. He's so handsome and can you see the smile on his little face?
 Okay now for the test because it's dark outside now. These are sheers and I know if someone were standing right outside the kitchen window they could see inside but from across the woods I think we're okay. I don't believe we'll have any peeping toms.
 Whew! I get scared when I think of peeping toms!
 Here you can see the little design on the sheers. I believe my daughter got these from Walmart. I just measured and cut them up to fit these windows. Don't look too closely as they're not sewn perfectly but I don't care. Zero dollars to fix my dilemma of peeping toms!
Okay, I do believe any peeping toms will move on down to the next house don't you? We sure don't want no peeping toms around here!

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Every Move You Make

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

O can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you
