I made these cafe curtains from a twin sheet for our yellow house kitchen. I do not sew other than hand sewing and embroidery. I used fusible webbing to hem the raw edges. I found the twin sheet, with cabbage roses, at the Catholic Thrift Store for two dollars. My previous Ikea black and white cafe curtains were also from that thrift store. I find terrific new and vintage linens there. These curtains are perfectly imperfect and will be fine here for a while.
The blue painting I had here did not work so I hung this floral oil painting I found at another thrift store for ten dollars. Forgive my lack of sun as I quickly snapped these images in the little bit of sun we had yesterday. It has been raining for ages here.
A view from the kitchen island. It looks as if I am running a china shop. A cake pedestal for twenty dollars anyone?
I found the cafe curtain clips at an estate sale on Saturday, new, for $1.50 a package. I left the curtains this longer length so that I can raise and lower them. We watch birds and can easily see them when the curtains are in the middle of the window. Total cost for the simple sheet cafe curtains was five dollars.
Thank you for your encouraging comments on my food story in the last post.
I shall post another food story this week.
Clovis and I traveled to the old house yesterday and all things here are tricky.
It is difficult to post, comment, heck it may rain in the bedroom or pantry any minute.
Life sweet life.
