I'm not an interior decorator, either…

(Before It's News)

When we moved into our trailer almost exactly 2 years ago, I brought the sheer curtains from our old house and hung them at the windows in the trailer… (a.k.a. “mobile home”)  That was fine, for a long long time… until a few weeks ago, I was visiting our oldest daughter, and she was getting rid of some clothing and other items.  There was a very nice cotton valance in there.  I said, “Can I have that?”  So, here it is at our kitchen window:

Well, like the story of the peasant man who broke his shoelace, this new addition to our home made me dissatisfied with the sheers I had at the windows.  Sigh….  so I bought 3 yards of muslin and 1 yard of a print at our local Walmart and made valances for our 3 other windows in the “great room.”

If you look closely, you will see that I applied some lace trim above and below the strip with birds on it.  I have had that lace for a number of years.  I probably got it at a thrift store.  It was obviously purchased new well before the internet.  The printing on the card it is wound around says, “Home-Sew Bethlehem, PA 18018″.  I looked online and found the company!  They have some really good deals on there: if you sew, I urge you to take a look!
