Hand Maid Curtains

With curtains on my mind, I decided to visit Paula and take a look at curtains. The little details I observed showed the care and attention that she and Terri put into creating the perfect space at their shop. Each window had its own, unique details. I would have been so easy to just put up a fabric or lace curtain and leave it at that. But, that's not their 'style'. Instead, finishing touches made each window covering its own work of art. Let's take a look at their creative additions --- a bead swag, rosettes spaced six inches apart that pull and tuck lace panels, hankies layered into a valence, a bundle of dried roses capping a gathered drape, a row of narrow lace bordered with lace swags and a puckered top, and side panels of floral printed cotton hug gathered lace panels. Sweetness plus! Hand maid curtains --- purely vintage!

  1. Is there a website to them? can you order from them?

  2. Thank you for sharing these sweet window coverings, my friend. I enjoyed each one - all the details and the sweetness - and wondered where I could install more windows in my little house! ~Adrienne~

  3. I like light, gentle window coverings because I love for the sun to stream in. These are lovely. Thank you for sharing them with us.
