The Mama Has Landed

I repeat, the Mama has landed.

We got all moved in to our new house over the weekend and close escrow today! I got my little sewing corner set up - no more separate sewing studio for me:( -and am hoping to get back to sewing within the next few days. There are still boxes to unpack but it's all that miscellaneous stuff you can't find a good home for and probably don't really need. Plus, our whole lives have been about moving for the last two weeks so I'm ready to do something "normal" again.

I have a homework assignment for everyone: find window treatment ideas for me. Since we're now in a rental and can't paint, I want to cover the whole house (or maybe just the windows) with fabric to give it some life. The problem is that we live in a really old house with really old walls (plaster? it's like hammering into concrete). So, I don't want to totally damage the walls by using the screws required for normal drapery hardware. I'm looking for curtain ideas that only require small nails. The only idea I can come up with is to use decorative nails to just tack the fabric to the wall but I can't think of a way to tie them back to the side. So, get crackin' on your homework!

Try tension rods inside the window casings. This from Cindy, aka Grandma Cindy.
