Window treatment ideas needed

Hello I know I have been missing for a couple of weeks. I have been busy working on completing the oriental room and starting the bathroom and finishing the hallway.

I added a few accessories to the oriental room. For now I'm done with this room I will be adding some accessories to the dresser, and this room is stamped Complete!

I have begun work on the bathroom, and I must say I really like how it turned out. The windows really need some kind of window treatments, but what kind? I was thinking about making some non-working venetian blinds, or maybe some window shades like Kathi from Beautiful Mini Blessings made. I love the window shades she made, head over there and check them out! Your input is greatly appreciated.

As I was working on this room ideas kept popping into my head. The trim pop, not buying a faucet but making one pop, changing the original plans on what to use as the floor to what I have now pop. I think all those popping sounds were beneficial:)

Ok, back to the window coverings, what should I use to give the lil people a little privacy? I was thinking about covering about a 1/3 of the window, who am I kidding I barely passed collage algebra, what is a 1/3. In other words I'm going to leave the top part exposed, lol. All I'm missing now is a little toilet and more accessories.

The hallway has been in the making for sometime. It's not finished I don't believe I will ever be done with it. So here is the picture so far
 I made all the pictures. I found the table and chair at a thrift store. It was in a lil room box. I'm looking for a nice rug to go in this area. 

I may add more pictures to this wall. I really like the hints of blue in the hallway.  

Because this hallway is so dark, I think I'm going to have to purchase a battery-operated lamp to sit on the table. I'm hearing mix reviews about the battery-operated lights, any comments? Whenever someone sees my house they say why didn't you put lights in it? I'm like I didn't want to. The time it would have took to wire this house was too much for me. I'll pass. I rather invest in the battery lights, an investment that I'm seeing is $. Just maybe I should have…

At last… I brought another dollhouse! I realize I like decorating vs. building, I think. I'm going to buy The Orchid Dollhouse for my stepdaughter; we are going to build this together. I better begin before I start interning this summer; I know my schedule will be crazy with a capital C. So here is my new dollhouse I found her at the Antique flea market in Webster, Florida. This is Coventry Cottage by Greenleaf. I'm unsure what I'm going to do with it for now. To be continue….
