Sounds like the name of a decorating blog. But it's only the new valances I made this weekend for our front room windows. They are set in under a ??? I don't know what this architectural detail is called, but you can see it in the first photo. I liked the combination of the rough burlap and the fine lace, and I wanted something sort of neutral, so here they are. I was covered in shed burlap fibers, and my sewing machine is not talking to me til I vacuum her out, but they're just what the doctor ordered.
I didn't want a heavy band of dark across the windows--one of the best things about this room is its natural light. These are perfect for this. With afternoon sun, you can't even see the lace, and the burlap is such an open weave it becomes translucent. Third photo is of morning sun, still with lots of light. Never would have thought of burlap as a translucent material, but it works.
Also, there's a photo of Schultz in his favorite spot...Phil's lap in family room. He can see out the patio door and keep tabs on the neighbors from there, and he gets to hang with Dad. What's not to love?
Hope your week is fabulous, dahlink.
