I have never owned any until today but I have always adored them...curtain rings. Boy, it's the simple things in life that make me happy. I recently purchased living room curtains from overstock.com (which we LOVE and the price was great and the quality is amazing). I had put the curtains on the rod but I wasn't 100% happy with that. I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond tonight and picked up some curtain rings. The curtains look so much better now.
