Curtains from My Childhood

So my mom gave me a set of her curtains a month or so ago. They hung over the sliding glass back door in my childhood home. I've wanted to share them but was trying to find them in an old picture. I found one today while cleaning my office and it couldn't be more perfect.

On the far left I'm playing house, fake-ironing what looks like a tea towel. You can see the curtains behind me. The next pic I snapped shortly after we moved in while our dog was staring out the window.

For now I have one panel on each window. It feels a little naked to me but it's temporary. I'm going to scour thrift stores and see if I can find a matching set. They're old but not that old, so there's a chance I'll get lucky. If not, I'll incorporate some new curtains into the mix and do something snazzy. if all all else fails, I'll just hang both panels on a singular lone window like in the kitchen or in my office. Any ideas?
