Our daughter gave us some of her old curtains. They were new for us – and clean – so I put them up in the Furlong bedroom. Makes the place look a bit different.
I took the old curtains down. We inherited them with the house. They might have been new in 1989. But in 2015 they were very, very grubby.
I laundered them.
Well, neither Mr Furlong nor I knew they had stripes. We didn’t know they had a pretty metallic design travelling up the stripes. We didn’t know that they are actually very pretty – striking in fact.
We prefer them to the ones, that are clean, that I just hung this morning.
I wonder what other curtains I might like in our house if I ever laundered them.
