New Beginnings


Hi Y'all.

Its been awhile.. I know.

I sure have missed hanging out around here.

I'm so excited to finally say...

We are Back!!!

And with a new look to boot!

For those of you new to our story, I will take you back one year.

Yup.. 

It's been that long!


A year ago TODAY!

For those of you new here, our home in Louisiana flooded.
We were not alone.
So many of our neighbors and surrounding towns felt the waters.

You can read all about it here


We lost almost everything inside of our home including 2 cars.


For those that have never been through something such as this, it's life changing.

Once our contents were set by the road, we had to begin the task of knocking down walls.



And removing bricks to reach inside.


You can see here below how we progressed over months.


And that brings you right back here.


Now this is where our story started to get pretty.

We could not have gotten where we are today if it had not been for so many wonderful people.

Strangers, friends, family... companies..

One in fact, blinds.com , reached out to us.

Y'all...

Not only did they go above and beyond to dress our windows, they listened.

They shared their stories and offered help.




And that's a big deal when you just don't know where to turn.

I can't tell you how many samples they sent our way.

Something so wonderful about getting to touch the fabric and see the colors in real life.

My two picks are above..

I chose the Classic Roman Shade in Portland Bay Side for our kitchen.

and

Rio Winter White for our master bath.

Within a few short weeks, our custom roman shades arrived.


At first I was a bit intimidated.

Just the thought of hanging shades made me cringe.

No worries!


They arrived with the needed hardware and I had those babies up in minutes.

That's right... MINUTES!

See that tiny hole up there?

Just drill the included screw through that hole and you're done!



To complete, I attached this handy dandy wall mount to hold the chain.


To say I'm pleased would be an understatement.

I'm blown away y'all!!


They fit perfect from top to bottom.

And can I tell you, that was not an easy task I'm sure.

Because our windows had to be removed and replaced with new trim, the sizes varied.

like the top was one size and the bottom was off by quite a bit.

I was so concerned that this would cause problems.

Not one bit!

Custom fit should be their middle name...love.


Many have emailed me asking about the back of the shade.

During your design phase, you get to pick your liner.

I wanted something in my kitchen that would allow the light to filter through but thick enough to give us 100% privacy.


They will walk you through every step of the way.

They answered questions before I even knew what to ask.


I guess y'all can tell by now that I'm just a bit smitten...




Now lets head on over to our master bath..


I wanted something very simple and classic.


I started out with just a simple white background and had them add this gorgeous grey trim.

They have many colors to pick from.


I mentioned before that our kitchen window had a thinner liner to allow the sun to peek through.

For our bathroom, I wanted something just a bit thicker for privacy.



perfect!



The right amount of light filters through with no worries.


I just love how it folds...


Here is a peek from the outside for those of you wondering.


I just don't know where I would be if it wasn't for all of your sweet comments, prayers,
and inspiration.

God has truly blessed us in ways we could never have imagined.


Thank you blinds.com for reaching out to our hurting community and helping so many.

Your staff has gone above and beyond making our little family feel safe and covered.

If you're in the market for shades or would just like to chat with a friendly designer, give them a call.

I would also like to share with all of you a coupon code.

If you purchase something between now and the end of August, you will receive 20% off of your order.

The code is susieharris

You will be blessed!
