I love me some Gwen Stefani –
Anyway, I’m back home after a fruitless search for pink curtains. Hello, why is there a pink curtain shortage in the universe? After going to four different places only one of them had anything that would remotely work but they were too short. My daughter’s window is huge so I need very long curtains. Sigh. I may have to buy them online or in a catalog.
Did some bookstore recon while I was out though. It’s the coolest thing ever to see my friends’ books on the shelves! I walk into the Borders and Jaci’s Surviving Demon Island was right there on the “new releases” table. Sharon Page’s Blood Red was up too. On the shelves I saw two copies of Megan Hart’s Dirty, multiple copies of Beth Williamson’s westerns and her Wolverton Blood, several copies of Anya Bast’s EC titles (all books I already own) and Sasha White’s Bound (such a good book!) and Gypsy Heart. The waldenbooks had a huge selection of Samhain books, some on end risers (Giving Chase included, yay!)
I bought Christine Warren’s She’s No Faerie Princess, Colleen Gleason’s The Rest Falls Away, Eileen Wilks’ Blood Lines. I can’t wait to read them all.

I just bought Christine’s book too, though it might be on my tbr pile for awhile. Will you review it for us? Oh, and good luck with the book pitch on Tuesday.

I went through pink curtain shopping just a few months ago. I got lucky – my daughter’s windows aren’t floor length, so I only needed 60″ long. Found some at Walmart, and some very cute rods with pink knobs and pink feathers on the ends.
I did see some on eBay and came close to buying them (great prices on name brands).
Good luck making your ‘princess’ her perfect room.

Cathy – definitely! I’ve been a huge fan of Christine Warren since I read the first Fixed book at EC years ago.
Ember – yeah, Ebay is my next stop. The windows are eight feet wide and they’re quite tall so I need multiple panels and the loooong ones. I did put fairies up on her wall Friday though, she loves them.

This sounds like alot of work, and it REALLY isn’t…but if you find a flat sheet in a color you like, you can cut it to size and with just 1 seam turn them into curtains…I’ve been doing this for years and I am SO NOT A sewing type of person! Anyway, good luck! (Love your books!!!) Love Ann (truly my name)

If you can’t find pink curtains in the size you want, try sheets. Half the curtains in my home are made from sheets.
Our sunroom has 14 large window and 2 sets of French doors. Because it gets so hot, here in MD in the spring and summer, I had to make curtains to block out some of the sun.
You don’t have to sew them, just buy clip-on rings to hang on the rod. Make a duvet cover to match by sewing to sheets together on 3 sides, and velcro on the 4th side. Put an older quilt or bedspread inside to change the look.
