I so love drop cloths ~

First, I have to share this beautiful image with you ~
I knew you would love it the minute I saw it in my gift package from Linda!!!
Click it a few times to enlarge, then save :)

If you've read my blog any at all,
you would know my fondness for drop cloth canvas and
the wonderful fabric that it is!

Well, this weekend I did it again.
I purchased three drop cloths to make curtains for our living room.
I know I will love them though because I love drop cloths!
I've already washed each one with detergent and fabric softener...then dried each one.
They do shrink a little but it so, so softens the fabric!!!!

I don't have any photos to share with you yet but
I do have these pics from a few years back in our last home ~
These were casually hung on wire that was wrapped around nails...
I hung them in the bay window of our dining room.
I loved the way the wire swags across the windows!

Plus, I just have to share these beautiful photos that Emily took of her gorgeous babies,
our beautiful grandbabies,
this past weekend!!!!

I'm also working on a few orders for friends....

Wishing you all such a wonderful Monday ~
hugs and love sweet friends,

Such a great post! I love the charming vintage card and the beautiful passage of scripture.

I am smitten by your wonderful drop cloth draperies. They look amazing and will hold up for a very long time. I am getting ready to slip cover four chairs and plan on using drop cloths. It will be a while but when I finish them I will be sure to post the before and after photos.
Have a great week,

Looking forward to seeing your drapes, Dawn! I haven't used drop cloths for anything yet. The grands look so cute!

Your curtains are sure to be beautiful! And such sweet pictures of your adorable darlings! I also enjoyed seeing all your beautiful treasure from Linda. So many sweet things! Have a wonderful week!

Hi Dawn,
After all the anxiety and work you did earlier on the floral curtains for your living room, I bet the drop cloth curtains will be perfect, nice and neutral to set off your collections! Good luck, and can't wait to see them! As always, i love seeing pictures of your darling grandkids. They are dolls.

Happy Monday!

I love drop cloth too, and I love casually hung curtains. Your grandbabies keep getting cuter.

Hi Dawn

Your grandbabies are so precious. Enjoy as they grow too fast.

Great curtain idea - I had wondered how yougot the stiffness out but now I know. Thanks.

Those drapes are the reason I have my drapes in my front room. Mine aren't as beautifully draped as yours were and will be, but they are certainly as cost effective and that's what it's all about.

Dear Dawn those curtains are definitely right this time and how simple really! They look amazing hanging from the wire.
Love your latest grand babies images - always.
Now I have posted a vintage lace heart on my blog incorporating one of your beautiful images if you want to have a peek!
Sending hugs,
