mistreatment party

Today I am joining "The Nester" for her Window "Mistreatment" Party! My sweet married daughter helped me get this Blog all set up just so I could join in the fun. Thanks, Em!





My goal for this window was to camouflage the fact that we bought these pre-made cheap blinds from Home Depot...thus, the two "seams" I wanted to hide. I wanted the blinds to look like all one piece. So, I bought the sheer panels from Target (which were meant to be gathered onto a rod), but I choose to do the clips instead. I also recently added the green candle-ring beads to the berries on the rod. Thanks for looking. : )
