I got these sweet old curtains at a rummage sale a while ago. They were kind of an odd configuration, one normal size valance, one tiny wee valance, and a teeny tiny pair of cafe curtains. They weren't in the best of shape, a few stains, and some of the balls had fallen off the ball fringe. But I loved the vintage santa and candy cane pattern, so I threw them in my bag for a quarter or a dollar or whatever they were. Then they sat in the basement for a few months until I finally threw them in the washer where they lost even more of their balls :(
And I really didn't know what to do with the weird setup. I actually thought maybe I'd make an apron or something. But then I put the normal valance in the dining room just to see how it would look.
So I'm pretty happy. I think the ball fringe really makes the look though, so I'm thinking about replacing it. I think just removing it would leave them naked, lol. So they're going to remain more shabby than chic for right now!
(The souvenir trays don't normally live over the windows, I just need to find a permanent home for them!)
