Lace Curtains........

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Charming, charming, charming.......

There is an obsession I have had for some time......I abslolutely LOVE "lace curtains"! Not fancy drapes or elaborate window dressings...but instead, very simple panels of lace. I adore their "intricate patterns"..... patterns that allow just enough light to filter through, to create "shadowy etchings" across a room. I'm also fascinated by the fact, that even the most humble window, can reach "fairytale status" when a bit of lace is peeking out from behind it's paines. Let us not be caught up in the infinite choices of "drapery design"......Instead, just look to the sheer lovliness of an "old piece of lace"......There you will find the perfect answer.....for any window wishing to turn a head......

Old stucco & sweet lace.......
True "classics", white & lace......

The "juxtaposition" of the "rough wood" & "pristine lace" is simply magnificant!

I've ALWAYS loved lace on my windows...and am adding them in my other rooms that are being "made over"!!

I like the pictures...especially the one with the wood siding and the lace...very pretty!


ps...I have my post all scheduled to go on the 27th already!!!

I love lace curtains too. So delicate and add such beauty!

Pretty, pretty, pretty, especially the contrast in the last photo. Lace curtains are relaxing to look at especially if a sweet breeze is gently blowing them.

Lovely Heidi! I have some battenburg or Belgian lace window swags I found in Illinois. I am still doing research on the beautiful old lace before I list them. Did you watch Martha last night? Did you watch her daughter's show afterwards? I wasn't quite sure what to make of it.

I loved your post! I love lace curtains too. In fact, for awhile we owned a very old travel trailer- think vintage seventies. Anyway, as soon as we purchased it, the first thing I did was to take down the calico curtains and replace them with ivory battenberg lace curtains (and paint the dark brown paneling ivory)! It totally made me happy even though it didn't fit with the retro seventies look of the trailer. Oh well- it was pretty!

I'm enchanted by lace curtains. I have visited Iceland several times and lived there for a school year right after college. Everyone in this modern place had lace curtains. I loved it! I always will.

I love how your pictures showed lace in so many different venues. It's timeless and perfect anywhere!

Oh! Am the same about lace curtains -- so lovely and inviting, with a wonderful old-world feeling. You've assembled such a pretty collection, especially the last image, which is beautiful.

I am definitely not a drapery person. I would have bare windows if I could. I think it is from spending most of my life in South Florida. I like things open and lots of light.

I have lace swags on most of our windows - and nothing else. We do have window shades behind the swags in our bedrooms.

How pretty!!!
My favorite type is net lace, and usually vining patterns.
And I'm awfully fond of tatting.
You find the most gorgeous pics.
That pink thatched roof cottage, OMG!! What a dream.
