Last week, I mentioned ordering these Restoration Hardware curtains from Ebay.
We finally got around to hanging them yesterday and I am completely smitten with the final result.
I had resorted to the fact that even though I got a great deal on the silk drapery, I'd have to shell out $75+ for the curtain rod. I needed a rod that measured 144''. I looked everywhere and finally found the perfect one at Target. Target only had 1 rod that was the color and length that I needed and it was only $34. Score!
We hung the rod 7'' from the edge of the window and 5.5'' above the top of the window frame. I did not want to cover much of the window/day light. I just wanted to frame the windows and add some visual interest to the otherwise boring wall.

Since I was busy ALL day yesterday, I didn't get to acknowledge Mother's Day on here. So, a day late, here's to my mom. She passed away from cancer in November 2006. I don't think my broken heart will ever fully heal from losing her. She was my best friend and I miss her terribly.
Here we are celebrating my 19th birthday with some girlfriends in June 2002.
