Ruffles and Lace and Eyelet...Oh My!

Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend ~ we've been having such nice warm weather here in Michigan! It's hard to believe it's still winter, lol :) There's hardly no snow on the ground!

I've been doing a little bit of changing in our home...trying to incorporate more white, and a little less pink.....not to worry, I am still decorating in pinks, as that is my most favorite color, but just not so much of it :) I've removed the vintage rose Valances that were hanging in our living room windows, and have replaced them with these beautiful white ruffled panels. The pair that you see on the left window I purchased from a seller on Ebay, and the pair on the right window I purchased at Target....they were the LAST ones they had, so I am soooo glad to have been able to get them!! I saw a seller on Ebay that was offering 1 panel for $30! I am afraid that when all the Target stores no longer have any available, they will be popping up on Ebay for a very high price :( It seems that is always how it is.




Each window is first layered with a Vintage white rose patterned lace panel, followed by the fab ruffled panels, and then finished with pretty white eyelet valances........These valances were originally skirts that I found at Goodwill! I simply cut away the top part of the skirts, opened up the side seam, then stitched a small rod pocket at the top, and tah dah!



Here are close-ups of them....sorry the pics aren't better, but it is a rather cloudy day today, so not much light comes into the Living room very well because of our covered wrap-around porch...




Here are a couple of things I found while doing a little thrift shopping Friday morning.....this sweet cottage white little birdhouse....




And a yummy smelling Bill Blass candle in pink.

I'm not ditching my pinks but I'm moving forward with whites and creams as well. I'm tired of doing the same thing over and over. :( :( :( Time for something different for me!

Love your white curtains! LOVELY!

The white curtains are wonderful! I'm a pink lover too, but I guess we have to do little changes now and then.

I love these curtains I have a set in my bedroom and another set in my doggies bedroom. I got my first set at target 19.99 for each panel then I found my other two panels at goodwill for 6.99 each at two different goodwills two different days in perfect shape! I dont know if it's just my local goodwills or all over but they buy targets returns so the curtains were like brand new just didn't have the original packageing what a deal!! So be sure to check your local goodwill you may find more! My mother Also got her set of these same curtains from goodwill! The only thing is you usually only find 1 panel at a time! Your home is so pretty!!

Your curtains are very pretty. Good for you that you found them. Pink is my favorite color so I know how you feel about it. I would love it if you linked this pretty room to my party as well. "Your Cozy Home Party" starts a 8 pm tonight (Mon.) and ends Thurs. At 10 pm EST. Come if you can there is always much to see.------- Shannon

Love your new ruffled curtains! I like mixing different lacy fabrics as well, had did this in my guest room - the skirts are a wonderful idea!!! - haven't thought of that. I wanted to let you know that I am hosting my very first giveaway to celebrate my publication in apronology mag. It's a cream colored lacy fancy apron.

As Janae said above, I got those same curtains at Goodwill, still in the packaging for 6.99 per curtain. I ended up putting 4 on my bedroom window--though 2 would have been enough. I am a pink lover too--the white just shows off the pink all the more though.
