This is a wonderful way to use some of those beautiful antique and vintage linens you have stored in the dresser in your guest bedroom......and you don't even have to damage the linens to create this precious cottage style valance. I have simply taken a 100% double cotton tab top valance that I picked up at my favorite thrift store and sewn same scale embroidered dresser scarves and doilies across the entire length of the piece. You could take it a step further and tie little bows at each of the tab tops or include some of your favorite buttons as well for more detailing, but it shows beautifully just the way it is. It looks precious hung with half shutters or with lace or solid sheers......all straight line sewing and just so easy.
Also, don't forget Collected Treasures' open house and Customer Appreciation this Saturday, July 18th from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. A drawing for two gift certificates will be held and sweet treats, wine. amd ice tea will be served....hope to see you there
