Curtain Call Ramblings

"New" curtain over the Kitchen window....

The new curtains from Ikea were too long, so I ripped off the bottoms (literally), and was left with 2 remnants. I pulled at the threads left behind, and liked the bit of smocking...but it needed something.

After digging around the studio, I decided this lace would do the trick. Dad found a bag of antique lace years ago in a home, and it's been so fun to play with.

Add some of Nana's buttons.

Clip on some old family recipes recently inherited.

Clip onto Ikea wire. Add GG Lil's spoons, already bent and previously used on kitchen curtain. Done!


  1. Love what you did with the recipe cards! I wallpapered my kitchen at our old house with pages of cookbooks. It looked cute, but I think I like this idea more. Great job!

  2. OK Julie...when are you coming over to my house? I need someone like you to help me here and there with simple ideas that create a statement that whispers of thought, love, and creativity. Maybe I just have brain drain from school...great idea my dear.


  3. Very creative. I love the different colors and textures. Definitely of a kind.
