We are feeling BLUE

It doesn't take very many pieces of colbalt blue to make an impact. Just the small amount of blue glass on the table really stands out, making an otherwise plain setting "pop" with a fresh, spring appeal. Colbalt blue never has gone out of favor. But what is this? Looks like something from the beach, but smells so much better!!

It's our new line of potpourri, and it all smells just as good as it looks. Just a little something we picked up at the Chicago Market last month. We are very happy to report that our customers are loving it as much as we do. The scents are: Green Tea Bamboo, Mango Ginger, Pomegranate, Vanilla Ginger and Ocean Breeze.

The Installation!

Well, check out the "before" a few pages down and see if it looks like the after. It was difficult to get the detail in the picture. The shadow from the folds are hiding the tiny red/tan check fabric that is just below the tassel fringe. The black valance took about 15 minutes to install. The blue valance above this one took about 45 minutes. Each little rosette had to be attached to a post, which had to be attached to a double-ended screw, which had to be predrilled, which then had to be screwed into the perfectly painted trim! Whew, there's not room for error on this little window. Then, by adding little rings to the posts, we were able to hang the valance from drapery hooks! Notice the glass beads in the fringe, they really look good with a little sunlight peeking through the blinds. What you don't see below is the window seat cushion (guess I forgot to take a picture), that is trimmed out in brush fringe. It's the best looking closet interior in town, I'm sure.
