~Find of the Century~
oh-Oh-OH, look what I found today!!

gorgeous~Gorgeous~GORGEOUS barkcloth-era drapes!! Oh my!!
They are now hanging in our dining room, over our double-doors.
I found them at my favorite shabby vintage shoppe.
Can you be in love with drapes? I think I am close to being so!
In other news (if I can stop drooling over my own find :) ......

Here is something else to drool over!! I won Karla's giveaway this month!!

Every month, she holds a giveaway, and every month I faithfully check for my name! ;)
I couldn't believe it when I really won this month!!

She sent me one of her handmade wallpaper scrapbooks; just look at this sweet detail!!

She included this lovely bluebird card, as she knows my love of bluebirds. It's one of the reasons we first became bloggy friends, because we had that in common. So it was quite generous of her to bestow this pretty vintage card upon me!! Thank you, Karla!!

And for now, I wish you a good night and sweet dreams. (I think I'll be dreaming of vintage drapes, lovely wallpaper creations, and pretty bluebirds ;)

Hi...I used to read your blog before I had my own blog and then I lost track of yours. I found it again and love it! I love those parents had something very similiar when I was growing up.

Oh. My. Word. Those drapes are GORGEOUS! You just can't find things like that in retail stores any more, sadly. I wish we had a shabby vintage shoppe here!

Oh My, I actually salivate over pink floral barkcloth..., well not actually! I love the vintage nubby texture & the floral colors are beautiful!
If I had just found these like you did I would be tempted to put in a new window just to hang them!! (Oh boy, just kidding!!) LOL!!
