Use What You Have: Tea Towel Cafe Curtains

Cafe curtains, they always make me feel like I should be wearing a beret and sitting at a bistro table and doodling masterpieces on paper napkins... in Paris. Which is a feeling I like.  

The super-simplest way to get the look in seconds, without sewing, is to use a cafe curtain tension rod, some clip-on curtain rings and a few tea-towels. If you happen to have favorite tea-towels (what? I just like them) then this is a good way to display them without getting them all funky and stained.

The very clever Susan Beal, bead genius and creator of West Coast Crafty made these lovely little fellows from map of Oregon tea towels ( I covets) and added pretty little bits of stuff to mark out her favourite spots. How cute is that!

Do head over to have a look at what she has to say about them. Actually I'd head over anyway, it's an awesome site.
