Are those curtains on your bed, Josie asked. Yes, they're tie-on curtains that I used to drape the bed. I got the idea from a picture I found online, I said. Both girls then demanded to see the picture. I produced it for them.

I'm thinking about doubling up the curtains on those two corners, as I have a second pair. Right now my thinking is that having four corner curtains would be too much for the space, even though these curtains are sheer voile. They are very nice curtains, by the way, am so glad I found them at Amazon.com. They are machine wash/dry and iron like a dream. I had a harder time balancing on the mattress to get the curtains up than getting the ties more or less the same distance from the bedframe "rod" to which they're tied. Once I got the hang of it the curtains went up quickly. They are 95" long and 59" wide -- and they don't make it all the way down to the floor. To add a little Christmas bling, I hung a satin and glitter champagne ornament to each tie to hold the curtains in place.
It's almost finished! The last chore remaining to get my mistress bedroom in shape is to finish the mini gallery wall. Well, also to start saving for some new area rugs. I had thought faux sheepskin, but haven't seen anything that's rung my chimes. I like the real thing -- the thought of my feet sinking into such a rug every morning or evening as I get in and out of bed is very tempting; but then I saw some beautiful grey and white oriental-styles that made me salivate. We'll see.
