Amazing Allison...Our New Curtains!

Some of you might remember that while we were in the apartment for Ernie's transplant, we arranged for some changes to be made to our bedroom...new paint and faux wood blinds. All of this was an effort to make it cooler and darker so Ernie could rest. It also sounded like a good idea to make the colors and decor more masculine (previously yellow and floral) since he now spends quite a bit of time there working and sleeping. The plan worked a little too well as we often find ourselves opening our eyes at 9:15 in the morning!!

Well, some of the final touches to our "bedroom re-do" arrived this week when Allison came over with hardware and curtains! A couple of years ago Ernie worked at her house converting a bonus room into a master bath, walk-in closet, and a bathroom and closet for her daughters. She has been wanting to do something special for us, and actually had a set of drapes she had made for a show, that would frame our windows perfectly! She made an additional panel, ordered the rods and rings, and came on over last week. Here she is at work, with Ernie happily assisting:

We feel so blessed to have such beautiful custom curtains, with gorgeous rods and rings, to add a touch of color and warmth to our room (these are definately more for me than for Ernie!). So often our bedroom is the last room we pay attention to, and I am so happy to have a place of rest, relaxation and beauty. Thank you so much Allison for uisng your resources, time and talent to do this for us! We love you!
