Here is the curtain that I want to replace. I really really love it but it's time to update and other than the wallpaper, this is all that is left of my sweet daughter's room that turned into my new Sewing Studio. The curtain doesn't compliment the room any more.
But I will tell you that after shopping for curtain fabric, I realized that I have reached a milestone in my aging process. Yes I think I have.
Either that or I recognized my Mother in myself. Very simply put, I think when you reach a certain age which might be different for each individual, things matching no longer seems a priority.
When I finished my sewing room that bright blue little pillow just popped and that was my inspiration when I when looking for new curtain fabric.
The problem was the wallpaper border just above the wainscoting and the pink morning glories. I'm over pink. And when I found the fabric that fit just exactly what I had in mind, I swooped it up knowing full well that it was not going to match this room at all. I knew that the only thing in the room that it complimented was the little blue pillow. I did it anyway. I spent ninety bucks knowing it was not going to work in the room. I set up a huge challenge for myself. I think I'm sick. No, I think I'm old.
I don't expect to get the new curtains made this weekend but I am excited about the pink morning glories.
That is the new curtain fabric on the right, and the little blue pillow and look, no pink morning glories. I mixed Golden Phthalo Blue(Green Shade) and Quinacridone Magenta and glazing liquid and I only about 75 more to paint. I might get that done.
Expect purple/blue morning glories,
Oh, the anthill in the top photo is me.
