It's amazing how a blogging break can gain its own momentum. Sheesh! So much has happened, and not, since I was last here. Thanksgiving, for example. And the completion of this very pleasing (to me) curtain that separates our doorless laundry room from the rest of the upstairs. All I had to buy was a package of clip rings, which set me back a whopping $8.64. The solid brown pieces are cut from two worn-out pairs of Patrick's pants, and I have to say I really like how the two browns play with each other. The striped pieces were cut from an old pair of sheets. And the other pieces are bits of this or that gorgeous fabric that deserve to be showed off. AMH voile, for example.
I used a tree branch for a curtain rod, because it was free, because I already had one sitting in the garage from some pruning undertaken this spring, and because it feels at home with the earthy tones in the curtain. I didn't photograph the back, but it's a nice big piece of brown linen with a viney cream-colored leaf print all over.
Okay, then. I'm back, I'm happy, you're happy. It's December 3rd, decorations are going up. On with the show!
