Frivolous Treats

One of these days we will start building our new house. I can't wait to decorate my kids bedrooms with frivolous yet functional pieces of goodness!

I am drawn to heirloom products like the beautiful Hudson Bay Blanket or the gorgeous Vintage Model Propellers

Items that will stay with them as they grow up, perhaps move into storage during their teens and then they might come out again as they get older.

Please enjoy the treasury that I have put together.

Goldfish Noren Curtains (Ikea Hack) #weekendproject

Ikea had this gorgeous tea towel. Love the design but I felt that something was missing.

It is part of a set.

I thought maybe some embroidery might fill the gap that exists in the design. So I spent 10 minutes in Illustrator to see what I could do ...

... and that I could use two of them as Noren Curtains in my bathroom.

I originally thought a cushion, but the cotton fabric is a little light on (although interfacing could solve that). What do you think? Have you got any crafty Ikea Hacks?

My crafty energies have been sucked dry by the application process for funding for my son so that he can get intensive treatment before he starts school.

But once my school reports are done, watch out world!
