Vintage Curtains for My Bedroom

I gave my bedroom a good fall cleaning a couple of weeks ago. Shuffled the furniture a bit and then decided I needed new curtains! After a bit of thinking and trying to decide what I would want, I remembered I had a vintage curtain I picked up at an estate sale (Back in 2015! I blogged about it here.).

I was just one curtain panel and two valances, but it was made up of two pieces! And those two pieces happened to be almost the same size as my old curtains! So a bit of unpicking and an old sheet for lining and I have new curtains!

I love this print! My favorite colors, a bright light background and definitely a vintage flair!

 It also happens to go really really well with the new summer quilt I am working on. You can see the quilt top to the left in the picture above hanging on the wall.

It just goes to show you can't go wrong buying things you love!

    1. Like the saying goes, they don't make them like they use to! I was really excited when I remembered I had them in the stash. Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Very pretty! I've also used sheets as curtains. Your quilts are lovely too. Interesting books on your nightstand, I enjoy reading Emilie Loring, but have not read that one yet.

    1. Thank you so much! We have quite a collection of quilts and I haven't made one in years as we were being over run! Lol! It is really fun to making one again.
      Hilltops Clear is one of my favorite Emilie Lorings. She moves to farm to try and make a place for her brother to recover. Of course in typical Emilie fashion there is a lot more going on! Lots of fun characters!

  5. I love the colors in your quilt! So pretty!
