Lace Curtain



Recently, I made a purchase from Ebay and yesterday the package arrived. I ordered a 1920 French cotton lace curtain panel for my front door. The package arrived quickly from England and when I opened it I was delighted.

I just tacked it up for the photo. As you can see, Molly was interested. She now has a better view when looking out the front door. The blinds previously in place were rather cumbersome for her.



Here's a closeup of the detail on the bottom of the panel.


I used the flash so you could appreciate the ecru color of the panel. I thought it might not look nice with the crisp white door but I actually like the contrast.

I haven't purchased anything from Ebay in years, I might just have to check in more often!

Oh how beautiful. It will be so pretty with the sunlight coming through it. I think you will enjoy that for years to come.
How pretty! Hopefully Molly approves, and hopefully she won't claw it.

I keep saying I need more beautiful decorative linens in my house but so far it isn't happening.

Beautiful! I love the ecru with the white. I know you and Molly will enjoy it. Sally
Very pretty! I have always loved lace for my window treatments and the ecru has a nice softness to it. It looks good with the wood floor as well.

Have never done ebay. Sort of afraid what trouble it may stir up!
