Thrift Thursday

I actually got these cool curtains a couple of weeks ago but I saved them to share on a Thrift Thursday. I LOVE the fabric and seem to have a thing for old curtains. I don't have any plans for these, they are intact with no holes but won't fit any of my myriad windows in this house. Some have small spots and fades so I am thinking they are going to be cutters so I can use the cute fabric in projects. I really want to make a craft apron or two a la Sharon Wisely or the darling aprons Pam had at AFF which I don't have any pictures of. :(

  2. LOVE those curtains. I always love everything here....

    youknow...Martha had a great article in an issue a couple back about taking these old prints and bleaching them out and then overdying. So kool !

    I tried it and it was really fun and if you are going for cutters with this...I was just thinking some experi mentation might be on the table then ?

    I mean I dont have to say PINK RIT DYE do I ??

    So listen, the peeps keep asking me about Spirit Sticks / Magic Wands since my Portals post.... I don;'t really know what to say - cuz I aint sure either.

  4. These curtains are beautiful. I have a hard time finding good vintage curtains. I find bedding but struggle on curtains. What a lucky find.
