Test Title 1

today i am restless for 5 o'clock ...

it's absolutely beautiful outside!

unfortunately i have zero access to windows during the day (come to think of it ... i think my office is the only one in the building that doesn't have a window). but to work from home on a day like today would be a dream. our apt is filled with big windows that capture the sunlight!

which got me to daydreaming about dressing up our windows.

a couple of fantastic ideas pulled off countryliving.com:

1) instead of full window treatments, string a lace border along kitchen windows to let in more light and add vintage charm. our kitchen windows are perfect for this! it's wade's favorite room in the house - w/ perfect morning sun. i had to promise him i wouldn't obstruct the sunlight! :)

2) a salvaged gothic window is used for decoration ... while sheer floor-length drapes cover the room's actual window. especially loving the idea of something sheer for our bedroom to contrast the metal of the bookshelves, bed and new bedside lamps.

3) fashion a large, square lace doily into a handkerchief valance for a romantic setting. how much do i wish we had this bathroom!?! :) i'm not sure if it's the window cover alone that i love - or the room as a whole - clawfoot tub, basket of flowers, ornate ceiling ...

to etsy i go for inspiration and materials ... :)
