Thank goodness I remembered that the screen door needs a secure latch at the top to be extra sure the dogs can't get out if they jump up on the door. There will be lots of dogs at this Rally. I would normally count on someone else to do things of this sort, but being single, not only do I need to be self sufficient, but enjoy showing other women that "we CAN do it". Although I don't hold a candle to Miss Terry from the Gypsy Journal, who can install cabinets, I like to think I will be there one day!!! I got a measuring tape and took pictures with my phone so when I got to the store, I would be able to see what would work.
Lastly, one of the things that has irritated me most is the bedspread. Although it matched everything, it was a regular spread but had a funny top where you pull the spread all the way to the top of the bed, then slide the pillows under a flap. In order to make the bed, you needed to stuff the spread down into the sides next to the closets. Stuffing two inches of fabric into a quarter inch space just wasn't working. Who designs these things??? I contemplated cutting a chunk out of it, but instead purchased a comforter ($25.00) that matches nicely and is so easy to make ... pull it up and fold the top down. No stuffing required.
