All work and no play. . .

makes Melissa's blog a dull read.

When my husband was in law school I noticed these pictures up in several people's carrel's to remind them not to study all the time. I'm going to put one up in my workspace. I am a self proclaimed work-a-holic. I get that from my dad. I spend all day with my children, now that school is out. Then I work all night creating beautiful window dressings. Sleep is for the birds.

In an effort to make up for the time I spent in Arizona with my family following my grandmother's death, I have been working round the clock. We even managed to decrease our turnaround time by two weeks! I was able to accomplish this great feat amidst a very busy few weeks. We've had a few additions to the Window Treatments by Melissa family.

This is baby Gwendalyn Rose.
She was born on June 13th and is the daughter of Neal and Krista Butler. Krista makes our ready to purchase/ship pillow covers in our shop.

This is Paul.
He was born on the 17th AT HOME! Way to go Becky! He is the son of Bryan and Becky Gentry. Becky makes some of our custom flat/classic roman shades. Bryan made our website.

And the newest addition to my family

Rainbow. (Yes, my five year old son named our black cat Rainbow). We went to Petsmart on Saturday just to see what all the comotion was about. The local SPCA had tons of cats there on sale because they ran out of room at the SPCA. The volunteer said that all the cats were going today. And I said, "Wow! You have adopters for all of them?!" And she said, "Let me put it this way. They aren't going back to the SPCA." My heart sank. So of course I had to adopt one. And she is a great addition to the family and is getting along marvelously with our other cat, Ruby.

THEN we had a huge rain storm that flooded the basement, which is where my work shop is.

We called this, "Operation: Save the fabric."

And thank goodness the sun shines a dog's rump every once in a while because my work space remained untouched. Every other part of the basement, on the other hand, experienced severe damage. This set me back about two days.

NOWNOWNOW If you have put up with my ranting thus far, I plan to reward you handsomely.
As we are now back in full swing, we are doing what we love best: Recreating what you want at a reasonable price.

A client asked me to recreate this beauty:

The Harper Roman Shade from Pottery Barn Kids.

Here is ours:

(I hope to have a better image soon. Our display block worked well with our old style shades, but it is not condusive to our new safety cord system and creates some funky puckering that normally isn't there. So bear with us. It's all in the name of safety)!

Depending on the size of the shade, our prices range from $130-$200. You have the option of doing a blackout liner upgrade as well.
