The good thing is...

Sunday, August 24, 2008

We are having an open house and it just started raining. I don't think anyone else will be coming. Oh well. The good thing about having an open house is that you are forced to do things you have been neglecting to do for a long time. Yesterday I scrubbed the concrete on the front and back porches and did a little window mistreatments of my own. And I do mean mistreatment. Several of the windows only have things pinned up to them. But the effect is still better than nothing. I will continue to look for curtain rods at Garage Sales and thrift stores. They cost SO much. So here is what I got accomplished with the windows. These are the curtains in our master bedroom. The red ones came from the Goodwill but they were a little too dark and the light would shine through them. Not in a good way, but in a cheep kind of way. I pinned the old ones up behind it, added some candles and some pillows to make it look comfortable and there you have window mistreatment number 1. The second mistreatment happened in a very girly room. I usually don't like stuff like this but there is a reason for it. This room holds a lot of special things. I made the throw pillows on the bed when I was in Girl Scouts. They are embroidered by hand. After that my mom made the bedspread for me. Also in here is some of my grandmothers China and her trinkets. So, whenever I had the space to put it in my home I had to incorporate these things somehow. Again, no rod so I pinned up the curtain and the swag. I put some hydrangea petals in the sheer parts and pinned them at the top to make it all tie together. I have lots of plain colored sheers that I have used over and over again. I think they are timeless and with a few touches can be adapted to go with several different rooms. And they are in abundance at secondhand places.

I love the petals in the material! I think you did a great job mistreating those widows too. I know what you mean about having people over and getting things done. Sometimes I have people over just so I'll get up and do some much needed housework.

OR you could be like me and have people over w/o doing the housework! Ha. ;)

You did a great job on your mistreatments.

Your mistreatments look good. Curtain rods are *so* expensive. In some cases more than the curtains (or at least the curtains I buy). : )

The medallion is actually hanging in my laundry room right now. I'm pretty sure it will stay there as I work on getting it all together.
