{My Window Mistreatments}

The Nester is having a party! A window mistreatment party. These are not all my mistreatment's, I only wish I could take the credit for them. If you want to join the party go on over to the Nesters and join the club!

So here are the mistreatment's I did in my living room. I know the solid color is not that interesting, but with a colorful plaid couch you can only do so much. Someday if we get a new couch I'd like to add a fun coordinating fabric to the bottom with some fringe on the top or something.


I used ring clips and some cabinet knobs from Home Depot to hang them.



These are from my sisters house. I love how she used her ragamuffin.


My sisters house again. Isn't this idea clever! I think I might need to try this in my own room.


My sister n' laws home. These are in her laundry room/office.
My sister n' laws house, I love the colors in these These are in their music room.


These probably don't fit in the mistreatment category since I'm sure there was sewing involved, but how could I not show them off. They are beautiful. These are in my aunts home.


I don't think they would be that hard to make, just sewing straight lines. I love the three coordinating fabrics that she used!



And there you have it, some window mistreatment's for you viewing pleasure. Go on over to the Nesters to see more beautiful mistreatment's.

AHHH! Chica these are freakin AWESOME!!! I have hit the jackpot and found some yummy mistreatments to grub on tonight after the fam goes to bed... I will definitely be back to take a closer look.

In response to your comment... it would be so cool if I did have a twin... heck I would simply take a sibling. Is it cool having a twin though? Actually, I am an only child... bummer. You would know it if you knew me though... I am rotten- oh I mean spoiled!! hee hee

Is it safe to say your LDS...? I am. Oh, and no, I don't play the french horn but I am a music lover in any form... good music, old music and really old music... and new music too. And well, sometimes not so good music too...shhhh! Anyhow... thanks for stopping by to visit our blog... look forward to visiting again.
