Oh My Curtains!!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

So have I mentioned my strange habit of pseudo cyber-shopping?  Yea, it's weird.  I'll go to Anthro's website, peruse the goodies, add them to my virtual shopping bag....then choke and leave them in the bag indefinitely {no Visa for you!}  I know it's bizarre but sometimes I luck out and find forgotten treasures there. {"You're on sale now?!"}
You should try it.  It's retail-therapy you are likely NOT to get in trouble for. 

I was on just such a virtual trip today when I saw these:

dip-dyed draperies {in 4 color options too}.  These are my favs...although the blue and coral {not pictured} are equally lovely.

My favorite part = the doily-like pom-poms. 
Who doesn't love a good pom-pom?!! 

My least favorite part however = $$$. 
Seriously, I cannot justify spending $168/panel {84 in.} no matter how cute they are.

The cheap girl in me revolts! 
I just can't do it. 
I will instead admire from afar. 

And since we're just dreaming here, I would love to see either of the following sets of treasures in my home.  I'd put them in my reading room overlooking the gardens and the lake OR in the south wing library with an enchanting view of the English garden. Either one. 
I'm not picky. {We said we were dreaming right?}. 

Option #1


{plus} Chair
Those tufts get me everytime.


Option #2

tufts + leather = love forever

{plus} chair


Good thing I won't ever have to make that tough decision. :)

Happy Dreaming!
