new curtains!


i picked up a pair of these wonderful curtains from IKEA. i almost didn't get them, but i am so glad i did. they look even better than the store display! i definitely want to get more in case they are no longer available by the time we buy a house (sadly, that will be a couple more years). i would love to paint our living room walls gray or slate blue...or brown. i just can't decide, but lucky for me, all those colors are in these curtains!


a bit of a close up (pretend you don't see those cobwebs up there...and the unpainted window trim!). these curtains are way too long for our meager little apartment windows, so i folded the top of each panel over a few times and clipped curtain rings on. and they still fall just above the floor. they did come with hemming tape and instructions in case i wanted to cut them to size. but i'd rather hold out for a house with high ceilings and tall windows. hey, a girl can dream....



this picture is non-curtain related, but i was just playing around with something i saw in a magazine somewhere. it makes me think of that old Jim Croce song, "Time in Bottle".

well, while i should be unpacking, i think i'll go make some fresh, organic guacamole instead...

have a happy Friday!

Love the curtains! I'm liking the vintage feel to them. Isn't it great when you find a smokin deal that looks fantastic too!

Ha! I love those curtains - just got them for the dining room, which I painted a taupey gray.... I am loving your blog, lady! You've got a great eye for styling, and your photographs are beautiful!
