Can a landlord come and remove blinds that were here when I signed the lease?


I haven’t been a renter for a long time and this is the first time my landlord has rented her house. When we signed the lease all the windows had matching wooden blinds on the windows. There were some personal items left here that she arranged to pick up last month. Now she has called and wants to pick up 4 of the blinds to use at her new residence, because “they cost an arm and a leg”. Window coverings were not addressed in the lease and nothing was said about them being removed when looking at the house. Can she keep calling and requesting to come take things left in the house?

Thanks in advance for your help :-)
