Ribbon Embellishment

I'm back! I took a day off from blogging yesterday. I'm fighting a terrible sinus infection which has rendered me lifeless the last few days. I finally bit the bullet and headed to the doctor. A couple of doses of antibiotics and I'm finally feeling on the mend. Thank goodness!

Remember when I made these for my bedroom?

Sorry for the flash!
I made 2 for the room and this one felt a little skimpy on the sides. Not only did the sunlight steam in but it looked a bit off. Nothing a little grosgrain trim couldn't fix! Both shades got some black ribbon down each side. Of course I just glued it on (fabric glue is a dear friend). I think it looks so much better!
annoying.. just noticed that I need to re glue the top on one side!

And here is a little pop of spring for your Wednesday! My mom organizes the local daffodil sales for the Canadian Cancer Society and she gave me a bouquet. They just opened up today and bring a pop of color to the dining room:)


I'll be back tomorrow with another guest in my Trois Amour Series!

  8. Sinus infections are the WORST! I had one that rendered me lifeless for three entire days (while my hubby was out of town, of course). Hope you're feeling better soon!

    As for the roman shade - the ribbon embellishment really gives it that little extra "umph" doesn't it? A nice contrast against the white trim on the window. :-)

  9. Yuck to the sinus infection, those really do knock the life outta ya! Glad to hear you are on the mend!

    I think I might have a secret love affair with that fabric there...secret because I don't actually have any of it in my home! Those shades turned out amazing...and I love the new trim! I have yet to tackle a window covering project...after seeing this, I think I need to get on it! (c:

  17. My mother had a sinus infection too , she told me it was one of the most horrible ilnesses she experienced and that she rather gave birth to a baby again instead of having another sinus infection, go figure...
    Get well soon, hope you have a less horrible experience.
    Good luck and xoxo

  20. That ribbon did wonders. Looks so polished now.

    Don't you hate it when you notice mistakes AFTER you've shot your pictures! I can't take a picture in my apartment without finding fault with something.... Sigh.

    Feel better!
