I really have nothing more to say, except that, someday, I want curtains in my house. And this post at Dig This Chick (my favorite!) is my inspiration for a curtain rod.
We have nice windows here (some that need to be replaced) and they all have wooden blinds. Don't get my wrong, the wooden blinds are great and, they were with the house when we bought it.
But, they don't seem to add much character to the home and I love character!
