Shower Curtain Rings-A New Way!

Good morning! It is such a beautiful, sunny Washington day today. We had the most wonderful rain storm last night, and now it's sunny and bright and springy! What a lovely day.

:O)

Well, now that you've got my weather report, ahem, I want to share a quick, fun way to create a background for photos!
We've probably all nailed a sheet up before for a photos, (no? Oh...me either.) but instead of butchering our linens, I wanted to pass on these little lovelies:

Shower curtain rings! Fun, right? You can find them all over the place, mine came from Lowes. 
So find a place with nice lighting, you might have a spot in your house, or, like me, you could have a cave for a house, and need to use your outside roof edge or something. Then, discreetly hammer in about 5 or six nails so that you can hang the rings on them, and hang your sheet from the rings clamps. Instant interchangeable backdrop! 

Like this:


And this!

And then you can have fun decorating your sheet if you want. I took apart a few different silk flowers and pinned them from the back to this white sheet:

So I could have photos that looked like this:

Makes you want to have a photo shoot with your little punkins or something, huh?

So, I hope you've been well. I'm having rather a busy time in my life right now, but I hope to see you a little more regularly soon. I've just missed you terribly!

Have a great day, friend!

  3. Thanks for this great idea! This will make my photoshoots so much easier.

    (My sister used these clips with fabric she got from Ikea and it made instant no-sew curtains).

  5. Thanks Disney,
    This is a great idea and I am also stealing it! I am hoping that is the point, right?

  6. You are a genius! When I am taking photos of items I've been working on to post on my blog, I take whatever fabric I'm using and tape it to the wall. A LOT OF TAPE is involved!! This is such a great idea!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Kind Regards,

  11. If you want to go even cheaper you can get just the clip part without the large ring at Joannes in the jewlery department. It's only a couple bucks for a big bag. I use them to make paci-clips and to hang a sheet over a window. Then you just need thumb tacks to hold the small hook. Easy peasy!
    Thanks for the post!

  36. How in the heck did you get so many followers? I am a new follower thru GFC and would love a follow back. I am considering doing reviews and did not know they also look at followers on Facebook and Twitter so I need help in all three! However you choose to follow is great and if you need me to return the favor other than GFC, I will gladly help out anyway I can. Thanks so very much!

  40. Thanks for continuing with your posts. They're really inspiring - don't wanna sound too much of a cliche type. But thanks, really. You're very creative, and I can be creative too, which brings me to say that I like seeing your ideas and having new ideas based on yours. Plus, I do want to do a lot of the things you've done, too. But anyway, have a great day! :)
