Blowing in the breeze


Well they probably look dirty five minutes after they are put up, but I have a thing for white outdoor curtains. They seem to spell summer, light breezes, lazy afternoons. Waiter, please bring me a Pimms and lemonade.
























































This couple has the right idea.



I won't get a chance to blog tomorrow night, I'm heading out to the opening night of Adelaide's Cabaret Festival. So have a lovely weekend people!


Best wishes,

Have been looking at fabrics for white curtains this morning... a coincidence... they are so beautiful, and one of your images with a contrast border has inspired me. Very gorgeous.

I'm with you all the way -- I adore white curtains outside! Then again, I love white curtains anywhere! My mother has them on her porch to hide the screens and it is such a terrifically romantic look. Love it!

I love seeing that Breeze!!! I spent the day at Disney in Orlando and did not feel ANY breeze, so this is all the more beautiful!

Great choice of photos. Gentle breezes and tall cool drinks spring to mind when viewing these. Love them.

Tropical island getaways...that's what the billowing white curtains remind me of....those places where you don't have air conditioning because there is a continual cross-island breeze....Goosebumps! Have a great weekend kiddo!

Ah yes, nothing says summer more than sheer white curtains blowing in the breeze. These beautiful images make me wish I was somewhere warm right now. Have a great weekend Catherine. Lee :)
