~ I'm Wanting to Make Some Changes ~

We lived in our home almost 15 years now, trust me when I say there's a lot of up dating that needs to be done. I keep an on-going list of projects that need to be done, along with those I want to do. Are you one of those people that keep a written list, one stored in your computer, or is yours all in your head?

After cleaning off the patio in front of the shop I came in to cool off. We're having a blast of early summer humidity here, the water drips off of you while trying to work. What better way to cool off than to do some "virtual" shopping. Please join me, I would love your input.

One of the things on the list to replace are the mini blinds with some beautiful 2" blinds,  and you thought I was kidding when I said I had a lot of up dating to do. Yes, I still have the "old" style mini-blinds! Talking about living in the dark ages. :-))
Cruising the virtual highway I stopped at Lowe's and found these Levolour 2" Slat Plantation Blinds, price per each is $45.27. Yikes! I have to have 11 of these babies, that's a cost of $497.97 before tax. Guess I've lived in a closet the last few years, I had NO idea blinds were this high. Let's keep looking.
Next stop on our virtual shopping trip Home Depot. This is not my style at all, on to the next stop.
I decided to check out J.C. Penney's and discovered they're having a sale on window treatments. Since they've come out with their latest campaign you can get free shipping on most items. Yay! Love that. The cost of these are quite a bit better, for 11 windows $385.00 before tax that makes them $35.00 a piece. These are made of Embossed wood, no mention of them being a Plantation Style Blind. I think I need to do some more research to see if there are any out there that fit my taste and budget. If any of you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. Keep in mind most of my shopping has to be done on-line. I would love to be able to see them in person, but we live about 50 miles from the "major" shopping arena's in our area.
Thanks for stopping by to say hello. Your sweet comments always touch our hearts. It is because of you I do what I do. Until next time... Pin It
