I just LOVE decorating with garlands and vines!
I made this mirror for Bruce out of an old storm door.
It's nice to lighten up the heaviness of an object with garlands.
This window in my guest bath doesn't require a curtain for privacy, and the whole bath has a garden theme to it, so, of course, a vine around the window was what I thought it needed!
The kitchen window looks out into the backyard and another vine for interest went here as well!
Yup, these are the same curtains I chose for my bedroom and master bath,
just ALOT longer!
Linda calls them the "Wash and Hang" curtains!
All you do is wash them, dry on low for minimal shrinkage or medium for more shrinkage, and you get this wonderful "gauzy" look!
They are actually called Tobacco Cloth Curtains.
You may now purchase them online on our website!
I love the airiness (is that a word?) about them
and how they just filter the light without blocking it.
I love natural light in a home!
Here is a wire form which holds a battery operated candle which comes on at exactly 5pm everyday and turns itself off 5 hours later!
"I thought you knew better than to leave a burning candle unattended?!"......... Men!! LOL
My dear friend Wendy made this collage for me with my wedding invitation and natural elements...and the bird is made from birch bark and was part of my wedding centerpieces.
I have had this window mirror for years and I absolutely adore it!
It is so rustic with the chippy paint and all!
And the vine just grabs your attention and lures you right in.....
I hope my photos have inspired you to
take a look around your home, and see where you can add a little vine whimsy......

and when I need privacy I just pull the curtain over to cover the entire window.
