As I mentioned before I was making new curtains with the wonderful fabric I purchases at JoAnn Fabrics for about $3/yd. Well the curtains are finished and I decided to make some autumn inspired tiebacks and leaf-clips to carry fall into our kitchen.

Just a little inspiration from theknot.com based on Jen's color choices...just getting the ball rolling :D
On the home front Aaron and I actually spent the weekend at home and it was quite pleasant I must say! Aaron did some more work on the island and I finished my kitchen curtain project. These are the fabrics that I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics for my curtains, table runners, and the PB wall decor I will be replicating with my own spin!
The brown and white fabric is for the curtains. The orange and green fabrics are for curtain tie backs and table runners. The Asian inspired fabrics are for the wall art work.
I think these curtains turned out pretty well for my first attempt at making them. The curtain rods I purchases off of EBay a while back. The total cost of the curtain's and rods is $30.
Aaron and I also went to Heebie's this weekend, a surplus store for home construction materials. We looked at back splashes, counter-tops, and cabinet hardware. We decided to stick with the hinges we already had on the cabinets but just spray paint them a worn silver/gray look that we liked on some of the handle pulls we had seen in the store. It's hard to get a good feel from the images but you can see the
beautiful possibly art deco look of the hardware previously.
