Hello! I have been really busy preparing Shabby Lane Cottage for Fall. There have actually been a few days when I could open up the windows and turn the air conditioner off and let the soft fresh air in. Now that’s heaven to me. I wanted a more neutral look for Fall this year and that started with the window treatments. I saw an awesome pin on Pinterest the other day for some shabby curtains and I loved them so much that I decided to make my own for the kitchen. I do not generally go out and buy fabric for items like this it’s just too much money for me especially when I will change them out for the Christmas holidays, that’s why I got all excited about this pin I found. NOW, hold onto your hats because you will either love these curtains or hate them. So far I have gotten lots of compliments on them. Okay, here are the pics.
These charming curtains are totally made out of scraps that I had in my fabric box. Some pieces are from a lace table-cloth and one is from a feed bag, and one is a half-finished embroidery piece that I found years ago. I just layed out all of the pieces and sewed them together. The table runner is made out of odds and ends as well.
On the back door is a lovely window, I wanted to hide the levolors so I pinned a piece of lace table-cloth up with clothes pins. It is so pretty when the light shines through. I took these pics when it was dark because the sun floods through and you would not be able to see the curtain if I had taken it during the day.
My cottage is now ready for Fall and I will be showing more soon.
Here is some new art that will be showing up in my Anne’s Attic – design Etsy Shop soon. Above are a set of angel wings that can be painted in any color and size. All of my art is like that. I want customers to have it custom and it is no extra charge.
For the lover of roses I have painted a scattering of roses. Here it is in pink but can be created in any color and size.
For the BOHO at heart I have painted a deer skull with beads, flowers and feathers. All will be originals and painted and designed just for you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
