Giraffe Valances!!

A HUGE thank you goes to my sister Shiela for making us the most fabulous valances for Eli's dayroom!

Most people know we collect Giraffes for Eli.
It's turned into almost a "treasure" hunt...always on the lookout for giraffes!

It's a wonderful story about how God is in the details, and I think I need to share it, in full, in a future post.


And Here are the BEFORE pictures:

Taken back in August:
After we first moved into the house, I used the valances that the previous owners had in this room:

Lon hated them!
He felt Eli's room was too "FUN" for "formal" window treatments!
So, I went shopping and found the Oh, So Cool Giraffe Fabric.....and they turned out perfect!

They're just what we wanted :)

How many giraffes does he have?
My daughter used to collect them, don't know if she has any she wants to get rid of yet or not, if so, I will contact you for an address to mail them to you.

Shi found my blog first, and I started following her blog.

So, its blog friendship, my love for making new friends, reading lots of blogs, etc.

I also blog about things I have made in the past if you want to check it out. Just go to my profile to find the other blog.
