My friend Mary made me this ribbon curtain for Christmas, and my husband helped me put it up last week. I love the way the ribbons let in the light but obscure the (ugly) view in front of our house. From certain angles, the view out that window features our garbage cans and our neighbor’s stunningly bland beige stucco house. Now I see bright colors and patterns instead.
I thought the ribbons might scare our parakeet Pickle, who lives right beneath them. But Pickle is a great lover of bells and shiny things, and every ribbon has either a bell or a shiny thing dangling from it, so he seems quite satisfied with his new landscape.
Thanks for my new curtain, Mary!
