Dining Room Windows

The new header pic is of my dining room windows.
They are done up for Christmas!
I normally just have the sheers hanging there with the plants .
The filtered low light is good for Peace Lillies.
I had found these old vintage fabric curtains among some boxes of my MIL after she passed away. Loved the fabric and just put them away for a some day project. When I was sorting some stuff trying to get better organized..yeah right... found them again.
Decided they would make neat tiers to hang for Christmas. Not enough to do many windows, and I just can't bring myself to cut them now for valances. .
I put them on tension rods, popped them in, then pulled back the sheers with wide wired ribbon. I really like it and is so vintage festive!!!
I added the garland and the old fashioned bubble lights.
I used all different ornies of snowmen wired on the garland.
For the middle sheers I used a wooden mitten ornie with snow folks painted on it that had jute hanger long enough to pull them through.
Added a big bow of snowfolk and red stripe wired ribbon. So festive!!
In the window are some of my bottle brush trees.
On the dish rack and old chest are nut crackers.
More pics to come...Santa's are the look for living room!!!!


  1. Your curtains turned out so pretty, and I LOVE the whole look of the window. I'll say it again, you have such an eye for decorating! I can't wait to see the santas!

  2. Now that is some cute curtains for the Holiday's. I really like them. I thought about making some and changing out my kitchen, maybe next year.
    Merry Christmas,

  4. Love window and curtains. That fabric is awesome. I used to have a pair of Christmas curtains around here somewhere that I picked up at a yard or estate sale. Wonder where they are or what happened to them???
