I instantly fell in love with this lonely vintage curtain when I spotted it at the thrift store a couple of months ago.
As with all of my love-at-first-sights, I didn't immediately know what I was going to use it for. So away it went into the bin of other green, love-at-first-sight finds waiting for a new day in the sun.
With the unseasonably warm weather here in Michigan last week, the snow melting, and the tulips pushing their way out to the sunny spots, I must have gotten a touch of spring fever. I couldn't stop dreaming about this sad little curtain, also trying it's best to boast fresh green leaves and pale white blooms through dreary layers of dust and wrinkles.
So a couple nights ago I finally gave in. I scratched the itch. I took the pill. I rescued my little friend from the box, gave it a good freshening up, then upcycled it into the bright, cheery bag that I always knew it could be!
