  1. Love the window treatment ideas. I’m out in the country now and I don’t really need window treatments for privacy. I’m looking to do something different and you’ve given me some good ideas.

  2. Hi Donna! I’m taking a break from cooking and cleaning for my husband’s surprise 50th this coming Sunday… I’ve been sitting here for the past hour engrossed in all these links! 🙂 I will be burning the midnight oil tonight!
    One of these days I’m going to have to see ALL your neat house projects in person (I’m inviting myself) lol….and I will reciprocate the jester and invite you to see mine!
    Have a great weekend!!

  3. I am in awe at how you can make everything look so great! This is why I love your site. by far the best examples you posted on “non-traditional” window treatments, were your own, of course! When I grow up, I’m gonna be more like you!! 😉

  4. Hi Donna. I love your non-traditional curtains. They are so unique and I love how light and airy they are. Sometimes curtains can be so heavy looking in a room. I do love your outside the box approach…it looks like they were meant to be there. Thank you for hosting. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.

  5. Hi Donna! Thanks for hositng:) It’s my first time linking up to your link party. I am loving the barn door window treatment idea!!! Those are so on my wish list for our next home we redo! I will be back to check out the 31 Days Blog to Biz series (perfect for a newbie.) Hope you’ll visit The Corson Cottage somtime:) Carrie

  6. Donna love your post. Love to think outside the box. I have a stain glass fireplace screen in my bathroom window. I love it. I did have a small picket fence that my dad made in my spare room window but I needed it outside so I used it out there last Spring. I love the thermos in the window, I have one on my kitchen table with flowers in it. A red checked vintage one.
    I also want you to know I finally got my Folk magazine and I love it. I just received it Friday. Thanks so much for sharing. Good luck with your writing, I will be watching for your articles.

  7. LOVE this party theme…I don’t have any “traditional” window treatments at my house 🙂 And I have to say…that hanger window treatment of yours is one of my all time favorites…so very clever!!! Thanks for hosting, Laurel

  8. Awesome theme this week. Wish I had something to share within the theme… instead I shared a project for each of the other categories. Have a great weekend.

  9. Donna, Thanks for hosting, I wouldn’t miss SNS for the world!
    But…am I the only one who sees the moldy ceiling over the claw foot tub in the Country Living photo?! Yikes! Never would I set tushy down in that bathroom!!
    Sorry for the negative, couldn’t help myself. 🙁
