Cobbler’s Children

I should be ashamed of myself
these are my venerable curtains

and they have given their all.

I love to see them blowing in the breeze- nothing like white linen curtains moving gently back and forth over a blue sea! The wind hasn’t always been gentle though, and they have given up all of a sudden, just like that.

I made these two panels for my own bedroom in Park Village East, in London, then they travelled with us through two other houses, made a brief stop in Midhurst (beautiful stone cills and Gothic arches), and have come to the end of the road here in California. I seem to remember I bought the fabric from Ian Mankin in Primrose Hill.

I don’t think I can bear to replace them yet…

    Oh no, you can't replace them – they're charming just as they are! Linen always gets better with age, so I say keep them! K xx

    They're truly weathered now!

    They are perfect :)

    In that case, I think you just have to declare them to be 'Shabby Chic' and remember the Nester's mantra: It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.
