Window treatment in silk fabric

Here are window treatments I created in a master bedroom suite. We were trying to re create an Italian theme window element. The rod is a wood rope called Italian Gold with great finials. The top of the treatment was turned down and an embellishment of tassel fringe was added to tie in the hold backs at the center of the treatment. These are made out of silk fabric with lining and interlining.

These are aboslutely gorgeous. Whether having custom made window treatments or window treatments created on a budget using interlining with silk style fabrics will give the treatment more body. Also embellishments always gives an extra punch to give it that decorator look.

Tip: Always try to embellish in some way the window treatment even ready made type.
Expressively yours,

Home for the Holidays 2008

This was so exciting. My home that was Decked out for Christmas was chosen by the Valley Times to be featured in the Home for the Holidays section of the Newspaper. I was surprised and thrilled. I love decorating for the holidays and have added holiday decorating to my services menu of my business. The newspaper took pictures and asked questions about the decorations that was featured in an article on Dec. 20 2008. One of the questions was about all the coordinating ribbon and if that was a costly item. I stated with a laugh not when you purchase the ribbon from Costo at $7.99 for 50 yards.

My tip for today: look for great decorations after Christmas at the 50% off bargain price and great ribbon from Costo before Christmas.
