I originally wasn't going to hang anything on this adorable little window - I love the French paned glass on it
and I love that it's the original glass - wavy - dimpled and all of it's imperfections most of all...............
But while cleaning I found a left over roll of gauze from Lindsay's wedding and an idea was born.
I decided to cut different length strips from it and simply drape them over a rod.
But first I wrapped them into a squishy smushy ball - and stuck it in a pot so that it would become crinkled - it's far too flat and pristine otherwise
They allow light to filter through in the prettiest way
At first I added a heart swag made out of pipe cleaners (some of the photos I have more gauze on then others - what do you think - full or wispy???)
but in the end decided to go with the Paris banner that Susan from Butterfly & Bungalow made me
If you don't know this amazing lady's blog - do yourself a favor and drop by - her style is just unbelievable.
It ties in with the Paris themed armoire on the opposite wall ( HERE )
And I adore the ribbon details on this banner
I hung them directly on the window itself ( not the frame ) so that we can easily open the window to let in even more light ( it's a small room - with a small window - so not the brightest in the house )
And one of the little ones said
" Oh they look like Angel Curtains "
Thus the term Angel Curtains was born - and how they shall be referred to from this day forward.
A little strip of left over gauze holds an old key which hangs off the latch on the cupboard door
( waste not want not )
Angel Key chain perhaps?
Total cost for this project was another $0.00
Have a great day everybody!
