Have you named your curtains?

We had some fabrics on sale at the shop in February. Since our curtains at home were old, I quickly took measures, summed things up, cut the fabrics, sent them off to our shop’s sewing station and paid for them in advance – before anyone in management figured out I’d added my 25% off to the newly discounted prices.

No one noticed. *relieved sigh* So now we have new curtains at home. They’re pretty (though I wouldn’t have bought them otherwise.) The ones in the kitchen are Sophie, in my mother’s room, ElGreco and in my room, Hillary. These are the fabrics’ names, but I see them fitting. Have you named your curtains?

Interesting how a seemingly small thing like changing curtains can revive entire rooms.

Next month, if finances permit, drapes! ;)

Names that make me smile

poetry I am living in timelessness, folks. Again, I thought it was Sunday, and when I learned with amazement that it’s actually Monday I couldn’t decide what to post here.

Since I started working at the curtain shop, and on account of the supply being overly generous, I keep stumbling onto new names of the different fabrics on stock.
They make me smile. Every. Single. Time.

Especially when I get to say: “I sold Palermo today.”

So… How about a list to make you smile, too?

  • Poetry
  • Blackout
  • Mayo
  • Wood
  • Butterfly
  • Lion with flowers
  • Camel
  • City
  • Mandarin
  • Cube
  • Twister
  • Ricotta
  • Sinus

  • Palermo

  • Marseille
  • Milan
  • Ravenna
  • Roma
  • Padova
  • Manhattan
