.....and now for something crafty!
My crafty mojo has been in hibernation for nine excrutiatingly looooooong days.......
......but after receiving such a lovely inspiring gift in the mail from Liesl over at Hoppo Bumpo, I actually dragged out some sewing supplies and whipped up a new curtain for the ensuite.
The house goes on the market next Tuesday and I needed something to disguise the window because it's old and ugly. I used an organza tab top curtain for the middle section. I just turned it sideways and chopped the tabs off. Then I cut up some fabric from one of my favourite vintage sheets and added a pocket at the top to slide the curtain rod through, and another section at the bottom to make it the correct length.
It was impossible to get a good photo because the sun was streaming through the window, but the vintage floral print works really well as the ensuite is painted pale green and the shower still has its original green 70's mosaic tiles.
It will make me happy to see that lovely vintage floral print every time I walk into the bathroom from now on!
