Back in the summer I came across this fabulous fabric find.  
I knew right away I wanted to use it for new drapes for our family room. 
The seamstress (my mother) delivered them a few weeks ago. 

I think I'm in love with the new Spring/Summer drapes....

These are the previous Fall/Winter drapes.....

Believe it or not, both fabrics were found on clearance for $4/yard 
and who am I kidding, I love these new window treatments so much,
they will probably stick around all year long.

I love the pinch pleat detail.

I realize we have only had the trampoline sectional for a little over a year, 
but if I play my cards right, it will be on its way out of here very soon. 
Craigs List, here it comes......

I have a few ideas of what I want to replace it with, but that's a whole other post. 

And since I am making a concerted effort to stop and smell the roses,
I picked up these beauties for $4.99/dozen today at the grocery store.
I smile every time I walk past them. 

Did you stop to smell the roses today?

  1. The new curtains look fabulous! I just pinned that fabric for my friend the other week for her front living room. Those roses are beautiful, one of my favorite flowers. Enjoy them!

  2. i love the curtains! the colors are so perfect! they look awesome- your seamstress rocks!
    and i went and had lunch downtown with a friend today, and then we strolled around and went to ben & jerry's too... that was my version of smelling the roses. :)

  3. Amazing how that just brightens up the whole room. My daughter Is thinking about doing a shower curtain with the same fabric. I'm sending her the link right now. Thanks for sharing

  4. Absolutely love the new drapes - gorgeous!

  5. Love the fabric and they do look great there!

  6. I think your new draperies are so pretty - I love that fabric. And how nice that your Mom is a great seamstress. I've asked my Mom a few times if she can show me some things (she used to sew a lot when my brother and I were little) but I need to get a machine first. We're in need of a new sofa as well - I can't wait to get rid of the big brown monster.

    Love those bright colors. And wow it never occurred to me that you could swap out drapes in a new season, bringing back the "fall" drapes if you wanted to at the end of the summer. What a great idea!!

  8. I have not smelled the roses today...yet! I love the drapes and I vote they should stay! I have been wanting a sectional, what do you not like about it?

  9. The new drapes totally freshen up the space - love that pretty fabric!!!

  10. I love those drapes and would definately vote for year round useage =)

  11. I adore the new drapes. What a refreshing burst of color. I am in the market for a new sectional...where on earth did you get yours to begin with? (and so totally would not object to taking yours off your hands for you!!!) <3.

  12. love them! how lucky you are for having your mom to make them.

  13. Love them!!! The punch of color is perfect!!!

  14. The fabric really adds so much more to the space. I love the pattern and pops of color. You really scored a great find, especially for the price. Bravo!

  16. I love that fabric! I've seen it before on pillows! It's gorgeous made into drapes. Where in the world did you find it for so cheap? An online store I'm hoping.

  17. Love your new drapes. They look lovely! I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll visit me soon:-)
