Today's inspiration comes from my blogging friend Rhoda. Please visit her wonderful blog http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/ She is an amazing decorator!!
I had a dilemma and she posted this picture, which is the answer to my problem. The entire living area of our farm is decorated in French Country with lots of toile and mattress ticking fabrics in black, cream and deep red accents. ( promise to post pictures later.) I made and built several things so they would match, which included a decorative shower curtain. Several months after we had settled in, I noticed that the bottom of my shower curtain was getting dirty. I took it down and washed it...and it shrunk. Not just a bit - but I swear the thing lost 4 inches off of the length. I have never liked it as much since then.
Well - getting back to Rhoda's beautiful dining room curtains...by adding on a black and cream gingham trim on the top with decorative fringe will not only solve my problem, but it will also look like it was designed that way originally!
Thank you Rhoda!!! ((((((Hugs))))))
