    I saw someone use old glass doorknobs for drapes to hang back on, though it was lovely and just genius.

    I made some for me some time ago: bought a couple of very nice antique soup spoons, folded them and attached them to the wall, then let the drapes go around them.

    You can use fancy butterfly type hair clips to keep the curtains open. Or you can use vinyl coated cup hooks, attached to the window frame, then use a length of braided ribbon or a long necklace to hold the curtain to the cup hook.

    Vintage door knobs are also pretty for holding back curtains.

    At Christmas I use poinsettias and during the summer I used a strand of artificial green ivy. Have also used braided yarn or strands of colored beads. For a babies room you could use daisy braid or ribbon.
