Before I get to today's topic.....
I would like to do a survey!!!!!!!
How many of you guys have had the dreaded stomach flu from which I am recovering???????
How many know some one who had it?????
Where do you live???????
This virus is
ALL OVER THE COUNTRY !!!!!
WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!
DON'T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!
This is not how I wanted to start my winter down here in Flerida.
The worst part is that after not eating for two days.....
I became ravenous,
and have now eaten my refrigerator.
Now I have to go buy a new one.
I am probably the only one in the country that has gained weight from this
I am very special!!!!!!
back to decorating,
just remember to leave your comments at the end!!!!!
Let us return to my buddy Kris's kitchen....
I wanted to dress the windows with a treatment to warm up the space.
there was a lot of glass in the new addition,
letting in a lot of light,
but I always want to slap some fabric around for a cozier feel,
especially in New England.
So I designed a valance with a boxed pleat sewn to a flat header.
Here's how the space looked without anything on the windows.
Here's a shot the other way.....
So, I had my good buddies at Drape It sew these treatments and install them for Kris.
Here they are getting ready to install them. That's Joe walking through,
that's all he's good for.
He made his son, Scott and installer, Steve, do the actual work.
The valance over the window seat was made in one big section, and it took two guys to put it up.
Here's a prettier shot, 'cuz their faces are covered.....
Here's Petey, the dog, helping out.
He had to be involved.....
He was such a good helper, He thought he was ironing the curtains.....
Here's Kris's husband, Keith, helping too.....
It just looks like he's making breakfast.
That's really not a spoon, but a screw driver in his hand.
Actually, on closer inspection, he's really making Petey's breakfast.
Petey was hungry from helping.....
We were all very pleased after the valances went up!!!!
So much cozier.
I tried to do a side by side collage in PicMonkey,
I can't quite get that program to work the way I want,
so here's the best I could do.....
After all this effort, Petey and I were pooped!!!!!
That's if for now, I am still not back to my vibrant and sparkling self.
