The Bomb Drops ... It Doesn't Match!

The bomb drops ... it doesn't match.  

This valance is the culprit that caused the bomb to drop.


This delightfully cheery valance is guilty.

... guilty ...
... guilty ...
... guilty ...
... too stinkin' cute guilty ...


She was replacing this ...


... which is next to this ... 


The delightfully cheery guilty valance above led to a conversation between Mr. and Mrs. Hearts in which it was discovered that the Mr. doesn't really like the fabrics and thinks they don't match all the wood in the room {ceiling, beams, windows, curtain holders}.  It was insinuated that Mrs.Hearts would be painting the walls pink next.  {GASP!}

The valance is a big NO, and that leads Mrs.Hearts to her decision...

... Mrs.Star is coming down ...

Mr.Hearts really doesn't like her, and the Mrs. thinks it is important that the Mr. like his own living room where he spends a lot of his evenings.

Mrs.Star will be for sale soon in the Mrs.' Etsy shop since the Hearts home has no other place for her.

Mrs.Hearts is making coordinating pillow shams as we speak.  

Here is a peek.


Alas, Mrs.Hearts finds solace in fabric since her extensive stash does not contain any fabrics that meet Mr.Hearts' requirements of brown.  

!! More fabric shopping !!

{TEE HEE!}

I had to laugh! Isn't it when a project is completed that then the comments come out? Many times it has happened to me also. "What, you don't like this? Why didn't you say something before now?" Well, the good thing is that you have the project completed and ready for sale. And, I never make a paint decision... I am always overridden by my Mr and his likes. (by the way, I like browns)

I felt sorry for you that your husband said no to your cheery quilt, but at least you can sell it. Now I realize it is good my DH doesn't tell me how to decorate. I don't do pinks in my quilting for the house, so maybe I am safe.

Oh, how sad! It is really beautiful! Maybe it can grace the window of a very feminine haven.

Too funny! Love both of your valances! I sometimes have fun making something and telling my husband it will go in our room....especially when it is wild and crazy....his look is always so comical! Thanks for sharing.
