Mistreament Pas Duex

(I'm getting into that French thing!)

My home is seriously lacking some personality when it comes to... well when it comes to just about EVERYTHING! Last Christmas I made some quick window valances for my living room using two placemats - but I sewed those bad boys. Now I know better!

I found two CUTE placemats when I was unpacking my fall/Halloween items (I think they were originally supposed to be a purse... maybe...). Anyhow, a few strips of that fusible stuff that I love and VIOLA! My second window mistreatment!

I had the rod up there already, so these were easy peasy nice and cheesy to get them hung. I added the leaf garland for some more depth.

 Now if I could only finish fall decorating!!


So here goes! I'm linking to the wonderful Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. And of course Transformation TUESDAY at A Soft Place to Land. And I won't forget to join the party at The Shabby Chic Cottage and the always fun Transformation Thursday. And once again Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville (links will be added as these parties go live).

Phew - I'm quite the little joiner, aren't I?

Enjoy!!

  1. A purse to placemats to curtains...why not? What a great way to use what you have to decorate for the seasons. Great idea.
