house goes on the market manana--wish us luck!

Been working like a dog the past couple of weeks on projects and cleaning to get the house ready to rent.  It goes on the market tomorrow.  I brought out all my favorite mid-century chairs (that I keep locked up in my bedroom so the kids don't destroy them) and arranged them in the front sitting room.  I like it....feels all grown up (as opposed to the kid's playroom which is normally there).

easy looking DIY roman shades

I love the look of roman shades with the clean look that still allows you to see the architechture/molding around a window.  However, the tutorials on how to make them seem daunting to me.  I saw this neat looking tutorial on how to make some from old mini blinds.  Maybe this is easier.  See link from Pearl Street Fabrics blog:

Row-House with Inner Courtyard

Inspiring townhouse/row house with a courtyard in the center of the house. Love it! I could definitely live in the city with this pad. I would put more plants/bamboo in the courtyard. Full
article found here (and more photos).
