After much debating with myself…(yes I talk to myself) I decided to try Thrifty Decor Chick’s Easy Peasy Roman Shades. I couldn’t decided between those and the tie-up shades. Since I have done the tie-up shades everywhere in my house I decided I would try something new.

I didn’t use hemming tape (because the fabric was a faux seude and would not iron without damage.) I just sewed them. Then I couldn’t figure out that whole ribbon thing and the math it needed. I am not that smart. So I sewed the ribbons on and then just tied them where I wanted them to be on the cup hook and tucked the ribbon ends in the fold. It gives me a little versatility to raise and lower them more.

Then I hot glued some trim to the bottom. It added some red into the kitchen, which is what I wanted.

They really are as easy as she says there are and they are super cute.

I hope a lot of people who read your blog will go and pray for Luke as it is not good at all when a cancer comes back only one year after a remission … We feel happy Pierre has been in remission for five years now and keep praying, he will continue that way. People think they are cured after 5 years but actually, it is safer to wait for 10 years.
