It is true that window treatments create the first impression for your home. Just like eyes are the windows to your soul, your house windows are connectors between you, your home and the
world you live in.
If you think about that, it is no wonder that it is the windows that we think of first when we decorate our homes. For a very long time retailers and manufacturers of window covering industry create large variety of accessories for window treatments
I started with our unfinished basement. I had helped a neighbor take down an old 19th century barn. I used oak beams and chestnut posts to give it the old barn feel. I hand built all the
doors out of pine. The door frames and trim are chestnut barn battons. I built the hearth out of western md flagstone and wallstone. The walls and ceilings are stucco done to look like old plaster. The other side of the room is the bar I posted earlier.
Make your own dog shampoo that is better for your dog and inexpensive! These are the three main ingredients: 1) 1 cup generic brand uncolored antibacterial liquid hand soap 2) 1/4 cup glycerin (found in the pharmacy section near the rubbing alcohol) 3) 1 cup white vinegar. Mix all ingredients in two quarts of warm water (I use an empty apple juice bottle) and pour it over your dog. I still use baby shampoo for her face and do not get this mix in her eyes or ears. It pours on, soaks in,
suds up and rinses off much better than any other dog shampoo I have ever used. The antibacterial hand soap kills any bacteria on the dogs skin (which is what makes them smell "doggy"), the vinegar balances the ph in their skin so they don't get flakey and itchy and the glycerine makes their coat soft and shiny. I've been using it for a couple of years and it is the best! As soon as my dog sees me mixing it up she gets into the bathtub and waits for her massage and bath.
