We are selling Raffle tickets for $2.00 each or 10 for $18.00... all ticket sales will go to the American Heart Association- "Go Red For Women" campaign..

 Drawing will be held Tuesday December 21st at our Holiday Party

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, maybe??

So I went a little crazy this year with the Christmas Tree, or so my son says!  I was thinking feather boas, yes feather boas, yes you heard me. And guess what color; turquoise!! Actually it didn't come out half bad, in a space alien kinda way, check it out! Let me know what you think.


We can slipcover almost anything! They are a great way to recycle your favorite piece of furniture that is still functional and sturdy. It's a great way to update your decor..

Before more traditional
After--more contemporary--Dog optional

They will hook you up!

joyful luxury
Doesn't he deserve a little luxury this holiday? Bring joy that will last when you outfit his space with a smartly-appointed closet. Shown here in the new Cocoa finish, black accents and oil-rubbed bronze hardware, this sophisticated storage accommodates his accessories, casual and tailored clothing, and even technology. 

simple storage
Good things do come in small packages. This mini jewelry tray keeps keys, keepsakes, watches, cuff links, and tie clips contained in one place. It's the perfect size for storing small things that tend to magically disappear.

Why you should purchase custom window treatments #10

Your custom treatments will be professionally installed to insure that every component is hung correctly and functioning properly. Now you are ready to show off your investment to your family and friends. Everyone will be amazed at how stunning your home has become! 

 Motorized blackout drapes for Media Room--every man's dream! 
The client actually "chortled" the first time he pushed the button on
the remote! It was a dream come true!
The elegance of this client's room could not have been achieved 
any other way then with all these swags!

Remember that when buying window treatments buying "off the shelf" 
or from a box store and having it done custom --
YOU are NOT comparing apples to apples, they might be lemons!
