When redecorating a room, don't be afraid to look past the fabric department. I have found that using a shower curtain (not vinyl or plastic, but more of a plastic coated fabric) for table runners or doilies aids in weekly housework. The slinky fabric isn't permeable, but yet is heavier than polyester or cotton. Dust does not settle into the threads, and you can wipe it clean with furniture polish and a towel. I came across this accidentally while searching for curtains to match my daughter's new comforter. A shower curtain, that matched perfectly, caught my eye and I took it home to sew valances and a table runner. Over the past two months, I have realized just how much easier it is to dust her bureau with her new runner.

Annette, thank you for your compliments on my web site, unfortunately, it has yet to really take off. And to curb your curiosity about my name....when you are on my site, there is a photo of me in studded leather armor reminiscent of "Xena, Warrior Princess". While I was involved in medievel reenactment, I was dubbed "Zena Chick" due to my risque armor and my resemblance to Lucy Lawless, the REAL Xena. The nickname stuck and I carried it over to the internet. "Faux" means "fake" and the rest is self explanatory. I hope this helps.

Oh my gosh, another costume sewer. Good luck on your web site business.

Yup, I once had shower curtains in my living room (heavy cotton - not plastic!). They happened to be just right. It's fun to break some barriers. Your web site is very clever and creative - and what does your name mean?

What a great idea. I keep a watch for beautiful shower curtains (on sale, of course).
