Window treatments....

The Parade of Homes is a 10 day, yearly event which features 8 homes and was held in Manlius, NY this year.  Here are a few unique window treatments that caught my eye:

This curtain rod was adorable....

...the birdhouses were attached at each end and also in the middle of the rod!

I loved the angle of this cornice....

...and the fullness of this gathered treatment of light, flowy fabric:

This bathroom had scraps of fabric simply tied onto a rod:

This master bedroom had a treatment....

with the curtains hung in the center on a short rod, and swung to each side:

This bathroom had a shade made out of a chenille bedspread!!:

This is alway a fun event and the decorating ideas in the 8 homes were just outstanding!

A few of the houses have sold, the others are on the market - the homes are lovely, and have all the new bells and whistles!  It's how the "other half lives"!
