Project 365 - Week 6

 This is the "art" that I shared in this post.  I hung them using these.  They're pretty nifty.

 A garland made from patches I collected while in Europe.  This is hung in my craft room.

 A twig wreath I got from Jeffrey Alans.  I have since added some dried lavender to it.

 New curtains!!!  Hooray.  I got these at TJ Maxx for $10 a panel.  They're a a linen and cotton blend with copper grommets.  They are absolutely perfect.  I was going to make my own curtains from drop cloths, but this is so much better.   I love them!

 My vintage sarsaparilla bottle with some extra dried lavender.  Nothing fancy, but it makes me happy.

 Homemade valances, just hung.  We finally have window treatments!!  Hooray!  It only took a year and a half.

Hand painted sign.  The wood was a random bit found in a moving van years ago.  It has a lot of character.  The word laiterie is French for a farm dairy (not to be confused with crémerie, which is a shop that sells dairy products...by the way, I got this all from the internet.  I took Spanish in high school and German and Spanish in college.  It's just that French is always a classic in decor).

Alright, that's all for this installment of Project 365 - 2011!  Tomorrow I should be pretty much finished with my kitchen fix-up.  I will try to get some photos taken and posted.  It's nothing fancy, but it looks a ton better.  The sad thing is, though, I think I forgot to take any before shots.  Oops.  I'll do a search through my archives and see if there is any at all.  Regardless, at some point in this next week I will post photos of the kitchen.

Enjoy your weekend!!!
