These are my new smocked drapes for our sitting room from Country Curtains. (This is their picture ~ I ordered ivory, not white)

I was trying to decide if they should be pulled back or left straight down?? I'm thinking that they really look better straight down.
So now.... rings or no rings? Thanks :)

(The rocker was my grandfather's...my cousin surprised me with it on Christmas Day!)

I like them in straight panels, and think they would be great hung from small rings. But you'd probably have to hem them, or move the rods up a bit.

Smocking is a wonderful detail for curtains, especially on a light, fresh fabric like you have---is it a voile? They are very pretty, and I like that they do not overpower your nice windows.

I like them straight on the rod just like you have them. I love your room, it feels like home.

What a beautiful, calming space. I also like them loose and would not change a thing.

Beautiful sunny room! I like them straight.

What is the pretty yellow paint you have on the walls?

I prefer straight with the slight puddling just like you have it. What a special Christmas gift!

Awww...thanks!
Straight down it is ~ and I still may try small clip rings someday. Thanks for sharing in my joy with my special rocking chair, too.

Snookums2...the paint is BM standish white. :)

Really?! It looks so yellow. I vaguely remember that color but not at all like in your room!

Thanks for the info!

hi snookums,
this picture was taken in full sunlight but the paint color is pretty much true to life. :)
