Roman Blinds - a story

When my daughter was born,
Her room was forlorn,
With curtains so plain and so drab.
So out came the fabric,
I whipped up some magic,
Coloured fishes and seaweed looked fab.

Now my two princesses have grown,
And are sitting on their throne,
Issuing decrees to make everything pink!





The fish are no more,
Having been labelled a bore,
So it's back to my sewing room I think.



Pink fabric of course,
With Spotlight the source,
The discount rack as always keeps me sane.

More stuff from the Op Shop,
To lay pretty on the top,
And hey presto, the Princesses reign!!
