...test your metal

Thanks to Mike Cummings, my awesome sales representative for Carole Fabrics, Tapestria and Hyde Park Drapery Hardware my appointment yesterday went great. Clients had beautiful drapery sent in from their Mom in India but needed designer drapery hardware and installation. I stopped over, they were gracious and tasteful and we chose hardware for 8 windows. In the Hyde Park Drapery Hardware line there are 8 finial styles, four finishes and extension poles to fit virtually every width of window. With these well priced, decorative rods it was simple to choose styles and finishes that compliment furniture handles, chandelier finishes and other details that make a room look beautiful. Expecting to solve a puzzle of magnitude proportions, the job was fairly simple. We went with the Oxford Finials for the most part in either Rust or Black. I can email photos of the hardware to you if you need. By the way, speaking of puzzles, on this day in 1924, Simon & Schuster published the first Crossword puzzle book. Have a tasteful day. I am off to replace my alternator...speaking of puzzles. Now for some irony...
