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.
