Blowin' In The Wind

Hello, Dear Ones.
Today I've been doing a little laundry and hanging some items outside in the sun.

Actually, I don't have a clothesline. 
I only have this little drying rack. My little mother calls it a 'diaper rack'. ;)
Hung my cloth diapers on one when I was a wetter! :)
Chloe Dawn is always trying to help me, with her presence.

I wanted to show you what I found for $2.00 ~ a pair of darling vintage kitchen curtains!

Look at the print! Oh, my heart skipped two beats when I saw these. 
$2.00, y'all!

Now here's my dilemma...
I'm not going to use them in my kitchen window but I do want to use them.
I've thought about chopping them up and making little tea towels.
What do you think I should do with them?
No, no Nannette, you can't have them! :)

Pin It
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ you know I was going to use this song :)

Blowin' In The Wind

How many roads most a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

  1. Great little curtains...and a great little price.
    xo bj

  2. great new treasure at a bargain price.. they are adorable..

  3. Shelia,
    Darling vintage curtains! Tea towels sound perfect to me!!! I can just see them on the trays and in your sweet kitchen vignettes!At first thought, I did think they were pillowcases instead of curtains! Thanks for your sweet visit and comments about my kitchen (en)counters. You always brighten my day when you drop in!!!

  4. I use sweet (and yours are sweet and I want them!!!!) kitchen curtains as guest towels. I don't even cut them up as I think they are rather quaint in a larger size. I LOVE yours.


  5. I love those bold folk vintage prints. They are so cheerful!

  6. Tea towels? Pot holders? Aprons? Maybe even in a colorful runner? Adorable print-enjoy:@)

  7. Tea towels would be adorable--Love the idea of an apron!

  8. Sheila, those are really cute. Tea towels sounds like a great way to use them.

  9. Pillows??? cute! and you defintely should use then someway!!

  10. You sure I can't have them? ;) Okay, well, tea towels would work, you could decorate your gorgeous kitchen with them, and then see them every day. What a fantastic, amazing find for $2.00!!!

  11. They actually would make darling pillow covers...but tea towels is a great idea too. They are charming and what a steal!

  12. So cute! Whatever you decide, please be sure to let us know!

  13. I love them!!! Tea towels would be lovely, there are so many things that you could do! They will look lovely no matter how you use them!

  14. Those curtain panels are so cute!!! Can't wait to see what you do with them, tea towels would be lovely! :)

  15. Tea towels would be perfect! I thought they WERE tea towels when I first saw them.

  16. Shelia, the curtains are really cute. I agree with the others who said that an apron would be nice made from them. The border would be perfect along the bottom of an apron. I trust your judgement, though , so use them in whatever way makes you happy. I know you will come up with something good as always. Have a fabulous weekend!!----- Shannon

  17. They are lovely Shelia but the way you have showcased them is beautiful! Enjoy your weekend, Gail

  18. It does look like a diaper rack !
    No... don't cut them up ! They are great vintage !!
    I just love Chloe Dawn!

  19. Hi Shelia, thank you for your sweet comment. I hope Dana likes what I did. I just do not have countless craft items to draw from. I am limited in craft supplies. I do have more than I did though. HA!

    I adore the curtains you found. Tea towels would be charming. Who has a clothesline these days? I do remember hanging lots of diapers for my babies. I never used a disposable diaper. They were just coming out when I had my last baby. Moms are lucky theses days but it costs more.

    Happy weekend to you and your hubby.
    Love, Jeanne

  20. Mmmm, I'd love an apron with a lovely big contrasting bow in the right colour!

  21. Hi Shelia! What a gorgeous find! Love your idea of tea towels, I think they would look beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend:)

  22. Hello Shelia,
    your kitchen curtains are really pretty, I think I would use them as table runners ... :o)

  23. Those are so cute and definitely vintage! They could be used in so many ways. The trim on them would be cute on a set of pillowcases. I'm sure you will come up with something you like.

  24. I think they would make precious tea towels! Look forward to seeing what you do!

  25. Those are cute curtains. I love the colors.

  26. I think these would make daring pillow cases or even throw pillows. Cute! And the price is just right!!!

  27. I always hate to cut something this pretty! I guess I would just drape them over a rod and pretend they are tea towels! lol


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
