The Business of Beautiful

There happens to be nothing more fun than being able to make something beautiful for someone. Such is the case with Miss Linda. Linda has a FAB.U.LOUS. home. She has exceptional taste and I love everything she chooses to do in her home. I have had the honor to sew for her and here is our latest project for her bath. She had a cute valance already on this window but "just wanted a change"....gotta love that!!!
The pleated shade is silk and the top curtain is the combo of fabrics that she picked out.

A while back she brought me this antique chair. It is in fabulous condition but she was going a little different direction with the guest room. She decided to have me make a burlap slip cover with some cream linen accents. She had the precious pillows already that just finished the look.

I think about 3 or so years ago Linda was redoing her bedroom. She already had someone making the pillows and bedskirt. She told me her idea for a bedspread and drapes. Here was what we came up with. It looks just fabulous!!!

We stood in her bedroom and could not remember exactly what I sewed!!! We know I did the bedspread and we are almost sure I sewed the large bolster at the foot of the bed.
Her drapes were a true labor of love for my husband. He agreed to help me install and this almost killed him. He perfectly measured and hung each finial. The problem with Linda's house is that it is a steel frame house. So my sweet hubby never knew when he would hit a steel beam when he drilled into the wall...I owed him big time for that!
The very first job I did for Linda was her husbands study. We put valances on the doors...

...and this drape on the window...Linda's husband is a hunter...this past winter he went "black bear hunting" and wouldn't you know....Linda is getting a BIG black bear rug....She quickly stated that it will happily reside in her husbands office. :)
Can't wait to se that!!!

Before the bathroom, we did some drapes in a guest room....that is coming up next...
Love, love, love her house!!!
