No Cost Personalized Tiebacks!!


Hi, Friends!!! I hope you have been having a wonderful week!!  I’ve been out of commission for a little bit with some back issues, but I’m back today with a couple great little projects for you to take and make your own!!

Do you ever have one of those moments when you fix something that’s been driving you nuts forever and then look at it and go, Of Course, That’s exactly how to do it?  I know some people call this serendipitous (a happy accident) I call it a cool new project to share with everyone else that it’s been driving nuts!!
Okay, I know I’m kinda rambling a bit today, but try and stay with me.  I have beautiful sheer curtain panels in my kitchen and in my bedroom. I love them because they provide some privacy while still letting the light in.  
In the Spring, I love to open the windows and watch the breeze blow them up.  However, in the hot days of summer, I just want them out of the way so that any little wisp of air can blow through and help cool down the house! It was like that the other day, and I did what I usually do, grabbed the curtain nearest the back door and tucked over and around the back doorknob, but it kept falling loose.  For some reason, I just opened the back door,  grabbed one of my clothespins and pinned the curtain back to itself. That’s it!! It worked!  Not only did it worked it looked good, really good.  So, I played with the sheers a bit more and loved the way they hung while in the clothes pin. 

Then there was the little issue that the clothes pins were weathered and didn’t look very good on my sheers, so I got about a teaspoon of my white paint and painted them… Then, I couldn’t stop! All the different possibilities!! I wrapped them with ribbon, I 
added a silk flower, I thought," Oh my they could even be bejeweled.. "I went through my jewelry box of broken an unmatched pieces and found an earring, not 2 but 1 that’s why it was in this particular box.. I added that to one and couldn’t believe how basic, simple and beautiful and elegant it all looked!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I am!! Love to see how you would decorate it!  Come back and share if you make some for yourself... I'm telling you, it's just the ticket!!


 I promised you a couple projects, I know!! The other one should be up in a few more hours, so for right now to be continued…….
