Kitchen Curtains

Found some curtains I liked at WalMart, of all places. 
(Sorry, I guess I can be a bit snobbish about my home decor.) 
To be fair, though, their Better Homes & Gardens collection of housewares has some nice things. 

I liked the fabrics, but. . . printed rickrack?? ick, I don't think so. 

So I went about cutting that section out and inserting some yellow piping.


My grandma bought me a package of piping for this project in the 60s, or thereabouts. I have a hodgepodge of trims from both of my grandmothers. I can't tell you how many times I have found just what I need in one of those boxes. 

Thanks Grandma!


Much better without that printed rickrack.


Fresh and pretty just in time for apple season!

Pretty cute! That is a good fix, and they'll be perfect for the fall-or year 'round for us apple lovers!

They're adorable! So pretty and fresh looking. I love those enameled colanders too, btw.

I've got some of those hand-me-down trims too, and I've bought others at thrift stores, etc. at 10 cents a pack. You're right, they do seem to come in handy at just the right time.
