Why you should purchase custom window treatments #6

Proper proportion is the first and basic fundamental of great window treatment design. Proportional length and width are all determined by your actual window size; it is not one size fits all; its custom fit to your specific windows. "Picking" something ready-made up won't necessarily fit your specific windows creating visual dysfunction-- it just won't be pleasing to the eye. Buying custom will insure that everything is in scale and proportion!

Snow days!

Oh, my it started to snow this morning and now school is canceled tomorrow.. When I was driving one of my employee's home I lost control of the car and we slide into the curb kind-of scary! The dogs were barking, the car was sliding, we were out of control--luckily no one was hurt.. How can something so soft and pretty cause so much trouble.. The boys looked good in their sweaters today..
