Deliciously simple roasted zucchini

Super Easy DIY Curtains

This will be a very short post, because these curtains are so incredibly easy that there’s not much to say! I used to have custom-made pleated curtains hanging in my dining room and they just looked too stuffy and formal.  Recently, I replaced them with these snazzy curtains (made of tablecloths!) which cost about $25 total, and […] Read more…
