"Toile de Jouy" Valance for the Dining Room and Goodbye.

Hello sweet friends !

I'm still wishing you all a great celebration for "St. Patrick's Day" coming up the 17th. of March. There is a Shamrock china setting posted along with this one.

Some of you who follow me know I just reupholstered my dining chairs with a beautiful 'Toile de Jouy' we acquired while in Miami this past January.

I mentioned in that post that I wanted to make a 'Valance' for our dining room window by the breakfast area, if I was lucky to have material left over from the chairs, which we did !

Well, we just placed it today after we had it delivered by the upholstery shop and we think it made the area look warm and elegant.
Hubby used to DIY this job when we lived in our farm, but now he says he's not in the mood, lol..

Anyhow, here it is for you to judge.

I also want to say goodbye to you as we will be away for a month in Spain visiting our daughter Alexandra, Sergio and baby Maxima again. We will travel to the south of Spain this time and go as far as Portugal for a month.

Wishing you a very happy and blessed Easter.

This is a big window and the only one in this room, that's why I wanted the "Valance" on it, to make it more warm and elegant, although it's no biggie, but it turned out just like I imagined it would. 

The window it's also by the breakfast room; as I mentioned it many times before, we have it adjacent to the formal dining area, this way we can accommodate sitting spaces for 16 guests if we wanted to host a big dinner party.

Now with the 'Valance' matching the chairs with the Toile, I love the Toile I chose even more !

A little Spring and Easter touch with some cute bunnies, just to wish you a very happy and blessed Easter.

See you around the 22th. of April.

Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

Dearest Fabby,
What a joy for having enough of that gorgeous Toile de Jouy left for making this elegant window treatment!
Loved your two previous blog posts as well and only timely for seeing the Saint Patricks setting.
We did perform today with our choir for the joint civic luncheon here in Dublin, singing the National Anthem and O' America (by Celtic Woman on Youtube).
Hugs and wishing you a fabulous time in Spain with your dear ones; Happy Easter to all.
