IDEAS TO FALL FOR

And on a lighter note, Fall is here, and I love this time of year.

Those dog days of summer are over and it is time to start planning for cooler temperatures, Halloween, Turkey Day and that festive Holiday time. I am hoping to see some changing colors as I travel later in the week from New Mexico to California, although it just might be too early. Before I leave I thought I would share my checklist for fall.

THOSE DOG DAYS…

 

 

 

If asked, the dog that resides at my house would certainly agree that the dog days of summer have arrived.

It has been hot and humid (even here in Albuquerque) for days. Afternoons call out loud for a person to nap along with those dogs. Before I heed to that invitation, I want to remind all readers that the online places we refer you to have great ideas for summertime.

sunglasswarehouse.com great styles – super prices – FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25

And if your windows are dirty, I always suggest that you HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. 

If you insist on washing your own windows, please use a squeegee and a wetbar. And, the suggestion of using vinegar and wadded up newspapers that you see in a lot of “how to” info is really not a good one.Best tip…HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. They are not expensive and it really does improve your outlook on life!

For Your Windows Weather: HOT

 Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shade Lattice 5%

The heat is on! It has been reaching about 95 degrees so far this week here in Albuquerque.  Forecast states it will reach 108 in Phoenix today. Wherever you are, summer is here and you will have some hot weather now or soon. If you have windows that face south or west especially, you should consider some exterior solar shades from BlindsExpress.com.

Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shades Style Boxwood 5% and 7% openness

If you block the sun’s rays before they get to the window, deck or patio, you stop heat transference, and that keeps the inside cooler. Extra benefit is lower air-conditioning cost. You can get low or high openness (5% to 10%) depending on the specific situation. Even the 10% blocks out 90% of the harmful UV rays.

 

  Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shades Style Shoji 10% openness

The fabric on these effective solar shades is sun fade resistant, and they come with sturdy, stainless steel cord chains. Right now they are on sale for 15% off at BlindsExpress.com, and SHIPPING IS FREE!

Stay cool, protect belongings from sun damage and keep the costs down all at the same time! Check out all their selections for any shades or blinds.

Sheer Delight For Your Windows

Wow, I am impressed with the selection of sheer curtains at Best Home Fashion.  This one has celery for trim, but it also comes with sage, black or red, and they all have quite an impact. Having just worked hard to redo my own bedroom decor, I wish I could have a different room for each style I love. Sheers do not do much for insulation, but sometimes it is all about aesthetics. If some privacy is desired, but you still want to see outside, they are perfect.

It would be impossible to show the huge selection of sheers available, so make sure you visit them personally to enjoy the beauty.  And, if you have need for more coverage, even blackout, they also have many choices for that as well. You will also find plenty of pillows, throws, rugs and other accessories to match. You can be sure to get 10 percent off, and they have a flat shipping rate of $7.99 on orders under $50. All orders over $50 are shipped FREE!  Okay, one more pretty pic for your sheer delight!

Available in pink or purple

Gotcha Covered!

Okay, you have probably already scheduled a professional to clean your windows for fall – definitely my choice. Well, at least you have planned on cleaning them yourself. Right? Either way, you might have some clean and/or naked windows that need window coverings. 

Before you go to the local box store, and pay sales tax, consider visiting BlindsExpress.com online to take advantage of their fall specials. They have blinds, shades, cellular shades and many other options to cover up those naked windows, or those ones that suffer from dilapidated old stuff. They offer great customer service and have quick delivery. They even show you how to measure correctly.

If you have already shopped and know what brand you want, you can probably find it at BlindsExpress.com. They have all the name brands and that is backed up with 45 years of experience. I bet you will find exactly what you want to dress up your windows!

RINGS OF FIRE THROUGH THE WINDOW COVERING

What great pictures there are today of the solar eclipse that occurred yesterday!

Here in Albuquerque, the sky was clear, and since it was one of the most optimum places to view this happening, there were a lot of special events and viewing options. I prepared myself to witness the affects, but did not obtain any special eye wear or gadgets to make it possible to stare right at the  solar eclipse. 

Instead, being the good “window related” person I am, I found some interesting places to make those rings of fire associate themselves with windows and window coverings.

Yep, that’s little rings of fire created by the big ring of fire in the sky. And, seen through a vertical blind in the guest room. How appropriate for me. 

As a bonus, the reflection of this event made something even better on the wall directly across from the window.

This was almost as much fun as the total solar eclipse I witnessed on February 26, 1979 in Oregon. We lived on a dairy at the time, and mid-morning the skies became totally dark and the cows started to come home.

For Your Windows sells vertical blinds, but darn, we don’t have any with little rings of fire.
