Working on the New Year’s Eve Invitations

Actually I’ve been working on the living room curtain and they’re taking longer than expected.  I was ready to hang up the prototype before I do all the hand sewing necessary for the pinch pleats but can’t find the curtain hooks. I’ve looked everywhere!

I can't find the curtains hooks that I so carefully set aside for the living room curtain project.

So instead of curtains I’m focusing on invitation. In the past we used a Tiffany catalog to help “ring” in the New Year.

Here’s the first glimpse of this year’s invitation.

This year the theme is very proppah.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
