Ahhh Monday --- Did you have a great weekend? I was hoping last friday that my weekend would feel long, and it actually did! I finally got started on our living room curtains. Oh to be a stay at home mom or to work from home is a huge dream of mine as I am sure it is for many of you as well..... I do so many projects with decorating/ designing/ clothes etc. that I want to share with everyone but just the amount of time it takes to document everything is a job in itself. :/  Someday! :)

So.... our curtains...to save money I bought one linen "off-price" window panel at DownEast [they sell curtains individually at their home stores] and I cut it in half. Then I made some 7" diamonds to fill the extra space below,  I also wanted to mimic our curtains in the dinning room and have that "cut-out" look.  I have only finished one window panel so far, hence my photo of just the one window....and how they look from the outside is just as pretty as inside! :)

This is a really EASY project to do...but just a little time consuming.




If I had more of the same or similar type of curtain fabric to spare, I would have added a 6" panel at the bottom, but since I don't..instead I used these cute teeny tiny hand crocheted beads from the 30's that I have had for some time now & stitched those at the bottom.


AND........

Yes, my friends! Another free item to score! 

Hand painted crow on ceramic plate - dishwasher safe and comes w/ plate holder & hook. 
I just painted this little guy over the weekend and thought this would be another fun item to giveaway.
If you want to be in the drawing for him, just leave me a link of your favorite blog [or your own] that you love to read! :)  Good luck - You have till Sunday May 22.

I can't believe you made these! They would be insanely expensive at Anthropologie and I'm equally impressed that you say they're easy--I know I would never have the patience-ha! That crow's plate is the greatest thing ever. Did you make it? I love it!

I really like the plate tons, and wish I knew the technique! If it were mine I would serve my guests blueberries off of it. Crows are one of my favorite animals!!!!

I would have to say that my sister's blog has my heart... it's personal and heartfelt...
