Ways To Hang Curtains without Installing Hardware?

Good Questions

Q: I have two large bay windows (6'6" to 6'8" wide). My landlady will NOT allow me to drill into the walls (the most I can do to hang anything are those small picture frame hooks). I have lace curtains I want to put up, but I have no idea how. I went and found some tension rods from Home Depot, but the longest ones were 4 feet wide. Help! Are there other alternative options for hanging curtains (without drilling into the wall)? I have blinds but want to leave them open for light, but still have a little privacy.
