lace curtains

Yes I know this post is about lace curtains and no I'm not approaching my 86th birthday. Bear with me here as these bad boys are flipping lovely. 

Made my MYB Textiles, the only producer in the world still manufacturing with original Nottingham Lace Looms, these lovelies are certainly nothing like your nan would have in her downstairs bathroom. 






I think that these are my particular favourite, although would love them in white.


They are so perfect for our bedroom. We've never had curtains up in there and I have a feeling that if I put any up I'd never actually close them. Could do with a bit more privacy in there though as our windows are rather large and I have a tendency of wandering around my room nude in the mornings. These would cover up my modesty whilst still letting light in, something we're short of living directly across from a wood. Plus they look so lovely and simple. Are you sold yet? Cos I certainly am.


oh and it's snowing here...

On another note it's snowing yet again here! I think I might have been a bit hasty when I cited that spring was here, either that or I royally jinxed it. 

It all looked very pretty outside my house this evening though, very pretty indeed.

  2. Net curtains are great for twitching. I earned myself the nickname of Mrs Mangel in the office as I was constantly peering out of the blinds and nosying at passers-by.
    We have muslin curtains - dead easy to sew by hand. They let the light in but keep nosy parkers (like me) guessing:)

    1. Haha my nickname at my office is Nora Batty for my old lady style (not for my saggy tights I promise)! Muslin curtains are a good idea, definitely a cheap and simple alternative to these lace curtains, although I am thoroughly in love with them :)

    1. Thanks, that's nice to hear. It is indeed very quiet round here, it took a bit of getting used to when I first moved to this spot but now I love it :)

  4. I can't blame you; these curtains are all lovely. Whatever you choose, I'm sure it will give a dressier finish to your bedroom window. By the way, do you have curtains now in your bedroom? Shopping is fun but choosing the right curtains or treatment can be daunting. I've seen this site before and it has lots of beautiful inspirations.
