OK, we all know that custom-made drapery is preferable to ready-made. But let’s face it; sometimes there just isn’t the time and money to invest in the process. And if this is the case, you needn’t worry about leaving your windows (gasp!) naked, for all your neighbours to spy on your every move. Nor do you need to spend a small fortune to outfit them in stylish, pretty fabrics. Many stores now offer a wide variety of window coverings that are available at more than reasonable prices. Drapery options have come a long way and I love that there’s so much to choose from. I love these incredibly inexpensive options from Linens ‘N Things. The Bellingham Window Curtains (pictured left) are modern, featuring a contemporary stripe pattern and cost between $49.99 and $59.99. And they’re machine washable. I like that! The Moda Contempo panels (pictured right, $59.99) feature European blind-stitched hems, are dry-clean only and come in five elegant neutrals. Freshening up a room just got a whole lot easier with these inexpensive options.

So, so pretty. These handmade glass orbs just captured my imagination! Each of the four designs represents one of the seasons; frosty blues for winter, crisp greens for spring, bright shades for summer and golden orange for fall. These glass globes make a beautiful decorative accent for the home. Hang them in a sunny spot in your home and enjoy the enchanting reflection of colour and light as it dances through your house. They’re reasonably priced, too, so you might want to consider buying these as pretty and unexpected gifts for friends and family.
