No Sew Curtains

Hello everyone! What are you up to this week? The weather isn't cooperating, so while I (slowly) begin on my project To Do List, I've been working on a couple of teeny-tiny projects around the house. For instance, curtains for my kitchen window. Now, I don't sew. But with a little creativity, there's no need. Well, not for me anyway! I'll do anything to avoid it...

We have a small window over our kitchen sink, which is only 29" across.  I use cloth napkins and re-purpose them as curtains. Not only do I avoid sewing, but I can change them out every week if I feel like it!

These would be perfect if you live in the city, or have neighbors that live very close, but here - there's not a sole out there.  Just woods.  And that can be a little creepy at night. So I use the curtains to let in the light in the daytime, but more importantly, I can close them when goblins are looking in at me while I do the dishes at night.   Sad, but very true.

I found some pretty cloth napkins at the DOLLAR STORE, which were - you guessed it - a dollar for the two of them. I had a tension rod and curtain clips (in white to blend in with my white woodwork), and hung them up.

Easy fix for a buck. Looove cheap, almost free, fixes.

LINK PARTIES for each day of the week. I can't say I make it to every one of these, but I'd like to!
